You CAN open the back, from the left as the flashing picture help shows on the little pop up screen. You just put pressure on the black disk like thing that sticks out, pressure towards the right side, and the back pops off. My husband provided that little extra oomph for this, after I thought I tried everything. Sure enough there was a 4/6 paper stuck back there.

Unplug the printer from the power and press and hold the power button down for 30 seconds or so. Then turn the printer around so that the back is facing you. Look for two thumb release latches to open the back end view of the rollers. you should be able to open the hatch in the back to get an unobstructed view of the paper rollers. Clear out any paper jambs in this area. Then turn it around with the front facing you and put your fingers in the groove of the plastic panel right above the fold down tray where the paper comes out and pull the hatch downward towards you. This provides a front view of the inside area where the cartridge carriage goes back and forth. Clear and remove any paper or debris in this area. Then plug the printer back in and turn it on, and it should rotate the paper feed forward before winding backward to the starting position. Leave the hatch in the front open or lean downward so you can see the rollers and turn it on and off again to watch and see if anything is stuck on them (like a sticker or label). If you see something stuck there that appears when the rollers roll forward turn the power off to stop it in motion so that you can reach in and remove it before its rotated towards the back.

I was printing a 10-page job and the first page just got stuck halfway out of the printer. I tried pressing the reset buttons, tugging gently on the paper, nothing. I tried unplugging it and plugging it...

If the paper is halfway OUT of the printer, that means that the other half is stuck in the fuser.
Open the toner cartridge door and remove the toner. Leave the door open. This relieves tension on the rollers.
Grab the paper as close as you can to the back of the printer and pull the paper out carefully.
Put the toner back in and close the door. You may have to power cycle the printer.

Hi what to do when the paper is jam/stock

Open the rear panel door and pull out the jammed paper or if it isn't there, open the front panel door and check there, if so, just pull it out. It's helpful when you switch on an off the machine while you pull. check out the flash tutorial to open the link
Good luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

My HP PS C4180 all-in-one paper jam error

Hello there This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Also clean The purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, Lexmark, Caonon and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing.

That is where you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it.
It also has an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

So clean all under where the heads are parked and on IP6600D models you can take out the heads just by clipping them out, and then clean well.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

This may be caused by a dirty sensor. Disconnect power supply, open the printer and clean everything. You may use toilet paper. Be careful not to leave fragments of toilet paper inside the printer.

Cannot open rear door

I figured it out! I yanked the tab to the right extremely hard, thereby opening the door. Obviously, "press in the tab" was incorrect in HP's manual.
