Try to reset it by removing the power plug form the printer and waite for about 10 minutes ,then reconnect the power cord switch it on again and see if the error has gone.

Also reinstall the software for the printer and see what error code it provides.

Why won't the paper jam error code clear on HP 3930


First, check to make certain there are no small pieces of paper stuck in the gears of the rollers and carriage. You may have to reach in through the paper tray to move the carriage to see both sides. To do this, the printer must be unplugged.

If you are certain you have cleared the jam, I would do a power reset:
With the printer on -
* unplug the power cord from the back of the printer
* unplug the power cord from the wall outlet
* wait at least 15 seconds
* plug the cord back into the wall
* plug the cord back into the back of the printer
* printer should turn on by itself, if not press power button to turn on
* try to print a test page: (With printer on - while holding the power button in, open and close the front cover of the printer 4 times, then release the power button, self-test should print.)

The following link from the HP Support site is a step-by-step guide to removing paper jams. You may want to follow them to ensure you have cleared all the jams and reset the printer correctly.

When i hit "print" the


Does the red light blink or stay on sterady?


Issue: The Compact Photo printer power button is blinking red.


Solution: Turn the Compact Photo printer off, then back on again.

"Paper Jam" appears on the digital camera LCD Turn the printer off and disconnect the power cord from the printer. Then reconnect the power cord and power on the printer. If the printer fails to eject the paper, the printer may require service. Contact the Canon Customer Support help desk for assistance.


When you power down I would recommend also unplugging the printer from the power supply (wall outlet). Let it rest 5 - 10 minutes and then plug back in.

The manual says a blinking red power light indicates a problem in the printer, but the only solution provided it to turn off and on.

If there are no paper jams, and no other error messages hoepfully a completr power down will clear the error.


Issue: Printer's power button lights red without the camera's LCD monitor displaying any error message.

There is a malfunction in the printer.

Remove the paper from the paper-handling slot and take up any slack in the ink sheet. Turn the printe's power off and turn it on again.

If none of this helps I would check to see if my driver is current:

Printer want print


o.k. you said you cleared the paper jam.. double check to make sure everything is clear.

Then try hitting the o.k. resume button. If this does not clear your problem try unplugging the power wire from your printer. Wait like one minute and then plug power back in.

Hopefully this resets your printers memory.. if not try pressing o.k. resume again.

I believe this should help you.. If it does not please write back..

Problem starts with "paper jam" messager. Can not shut down as light keeps blinking and "shutting down" message is on screen.


hi!!!! in your case,try to unplug the power of your printer and check the material that stock inside the printer that can cause the printer paper jam and after you check to plug it back.It is normal when the printer is blinking when the printer is paper jam because that is the error when your printer is paper jam.

Failure to print


Here's what we did: Lifted the lid and turned off printer. Then turned on again. Unplugged power cable from back of printer, moved the carriage toward the middle of the printer. Took out cartridges and closed the lid. Plugged the power cord back in. Reinstalled the cartridges. After the alignment page it worked fine. These instructions are paraphrased from HP website troubleshooting. I don't have any idea why any of it worked, but it did and I'm grateful.
