Hp printer photosmart c 4795


I don't have a photosmart, but I do have an HP OfficeJet J4680 that clicks sometimes. Check to make sure the ink cartridges are installed correctly. That's what is sliding back and forth when you turn it on.

Have HP printer C-5280. Keep getting paper jam message (no jam) and loud clicking sound as print cartridge moves back and stays in regular position. Is this something that is fixable, or is it time for...


I have same problem as Jchouinard1... same loud grinding (klicking) skipping lines, dbl printing.. and no HP repairshop here in Las Paknas de gran Canaria except for lacer printers... I just don´t need a lot of jaba jaba jaba abd I´m not going to ship the bloody beast all the way to Madrid... I want it fixed here and preferably in some dinky shop around the corner.. Not by somebody who doesn´t know Sam from Eva but some dude with some brains in his knuckles or toes... Those claiming having brains (for money) don´t even fit my own standard which is 2 masters in engineering... At 90 minus a nut or 2 I can still handle most handtools.. so what the **** is going on in HP printerland... Anyone nearby (or else) can reach me at

HP C5280 printer jams all the time at the same point in the page


More than likely there is a small piece of paper caught between one of the small rollers and the metal frame that hold it. Get a flashlight and look real good.

Paper jam when no paper has been anywhere near it, 1/2 INSTALLED


  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

My HP photosmart c5280 keeps saying there is a carriage jam. what is this?


Lift the printer cover. undo the 2 screws (torx head). remove the right hand end of the printer casing.

You will see a blavck plastic moulding with a couple of gears (it controls the cartridge cleaning). This is the cause of your jam - it is out of sync. Turn the machine on and watch what happens with this moulding you will see what I mean by out of sync and it can just be gently pushed back into alignment. Once it is ok turn the unit off and then on again and your jam should be cleared. Put it back together again and print away.
