My HP Deskjet 3845 printer had a paper jam and it was removed. It still says it has a paper jam and will not print. How do i fix this?

It sounds like your issue is a sensor is still not happy. Several things happen, but Long story short, you need to get REALLY GOOD LIGHT, get the printer on a table where you can work on it.....

So you need to inspect the entire paper path for foreign material, like torn paper. the sensing typically happens with little plastic levers. These levers get pushed out of position, and force a false indication. any dislodged lever needs to be put back, not necessarily an easy task....

Fortunately, most issues are some teeny tiny tear off of paper, wedged in somewhere.... Inspection and extraction fixes 90% of this issue....

Don't force anything.

My printer is not print it show's paper jam but the paper is not jam

Hello thanks for using Fixya

Actually you are facing E3 error, E3 error is mostly because of paper jam. their may be small bit paper jam in side
There are some "micro-sensors" that detect a paper jam. There will be tiny piece of paper, or a lump of dust, inside those sensors, thus "tripping" the sensor and saying you paper jam.

To solve it
Open printer cover and check to make sure no paper or foreign objects obstructing the printer feeder

If you become sure that now really there is no paper, dust or foreign objects then
Turn the printer off, and disconnect the AC power-cable. Open the printer cover & now give the printer a "blow-job" by compressed air.
If still problem exist then best & final option is to just contact to any HP service provider.

I hope this solution will helpful 4 u

The printer started jamming and shreading up paper. Now the paper is being pulled through at an angle if at all. When there is no paper going through the printer still seems to be going through the...

The following a step by step instructions for the printer issue:
First Set Prevent paper abrasion (Windows)
By using the Prevent paper abrasion function, the space between the print head and paper is increased, preventing print head contact with the paper.
When printing, if there is any foreign material (such as a piece of metal or a pencil) in the printer, the printer maybe damaged. If there is any foreign material, remove it at once.
1. Power the printer off.
2. Open the paper support and confirm that there is not any foreign material in the auto sheet feeder. If there is any foreign material, remove it by hand or with tweezers.
3. Open the front cover and confirm that there is not any foreign material in the printer. If there is any foreign material, remove it by hand or with tweezers.
4. Power the printer on and confirm that the printer operate normally.
Removing paper jam:
If the paper tears and a piece remains inside the printer, open the Top Cover and remove it. If you cannot pull the paper out, turn the printer off and turn it back on. The paper will be ejected automatically.
Paper Loaded in the Cassette Jams inside the Printer
(1) Press the POWER button of the printer to turn off the power. Then, open the Rear Cover.
(2) Fold a piece of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper in four, push it in until it hits the jammed paper, then pull out the paper folded in four.
(3) Close the Rear Cover, then press the POWER button of the printer to turn on the power.
Wait until the jammed paper is automatically ejected.
