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.

I have a hp deskjet 3845 that says it has a paper jam however, there is no paper in it at all. Is there anything i can do b/c i'm about to drop it down the stairs. I've read a few other questions/answers...


This error message is displayed by the printer when paper is jammed in one or more locations. In such a case, users are recommended to remove the jammed paper from the specified location. The entire paper path must be checked for any pieces of paper. To stop the message, open and close the top most cover of the printer. Lastly, verify the flags and the sensors. If the problem persists, the cause of the error message could be a broken sensor or sensor lever. get more help and information for HP Printer Support hope this helps you.

Thanks

My hp deskjet says there is a paper jam when there is none and will not print


If your printer for any reason reports a paper jam, withput going through the "clearing paper jam" procedure it may not respond to print command. So follow the procedure below:-

Clearing paper jam in a printer is simple almost seven step procedure depending on the printer. Paper jam is the term used to refer to the scenario where your paper fails to come out of the printer during the print process. When you send a document to the printer, normally the printer prints out the document on a paper; then you can pick up your printed copy. When the paper gets stuck in the printer, it is said that paper has jammed in the printer "paper jam".

Even if you are not a technical person, you can conveniently clear paper jams. All you need is to follow the set of procedures outlined below.



Good luck & God bless!

The green light on my HP Deskjet 3845 is flashing ..when I try to print it tells me there is a paper jam ..there is no paper jam. I have inspected the printer carefully, reloaded the paper. It will not...


i think u should check for peices of paper ,tiny objects etc that might be obstructing the movement of the paper. also check that the print head is not disconnected from the belt you can check this by slidind the print head from side to side and ensure that both of them are moving hope this helps.

Printer pulls paper to right side jams does not print


usually this indicates some foreign object on the opposite side where the paper goes in. Please check to see if you have some small pieces of paper or something else in the paper path area.

also, another possibility is that your pickup roller is missing, dirty or damaged. try cleaning it too.

thanks adi

Paper jam


Check for anything small stuck between the rollers, like a tiny fragment of paper, or any other debris. Clean it with a can of compressed air, if possible. Hold the printer upside down and gently try to shake off anything that may be inside. Sometimes you may have to dismantle the cover to check properly.
Clean the roller with a damp cloth and wait for the rollers to dry completely before trying to print again.
Make sure you have selected the correct paper type and quality from the printer properties.
