Question about HP Photosmart C4280 Aio Printer

2 Answers

Paper jam I have only had this printer for 2 months. At first it worked well. Now, every time I try to print, the printer starts and actually prints, but the paper does not come out. It simply gets crumpled up inside the printer. Is there something I can do, or should I just return it?

You can check to see if there is something in the pickup path, or take it back and have them make good on it..not usual for something this new to be that bad...

Comment:
I've had this printer for over a year now. I have it set up wirelessly connected to my network. The biggest problem I have is that I have 3 computers in the household and sometimes, for whatever reason, this printer will not realize it is done printing from the last job and will continue to think that it is working. So, when you go to print to it from another computer, you get the Another computer is using the printer. Please wait. This will continue until you go and turn the printer off and wait for the insanely long turning off cycle, then turn it back on. <br /><br />Once you do get it working, it gives you great output for both text and photos. I have been doing a lot of scanning old black and white family negatives and printing them, and my family members thought the prints were from a photo lab. <br /><br />Bottom line: if you want excellent output and have a tolerance for quirky connections, you will be OK with this. If, like my wife, you just want it to work like an appliance, and find the locking up infuriating, I would not recommend it.

Comment:
As rated by CU, it produces very nice photo prints. Text quality is also good when set on standard but not so good on fast. It takes it's time to get started when you send it something to print, whirring and clicking for a good minute before anything actually prints. My main complaint is paper handling. I sometimes print mailing labels from sheets. My previous printer, an HP 7560, would accept a sheet with an upward curled front lip. The Canon iP7220 either doesn't accept it or jams up solidly.

Comment:
Tried brochure paper and spent two days trying to get color right. Used glossy and matte photo paper for great print results, mostly. color shifted for no apparent reason. First batch of matte paper worked great, others jammed every 2-5 sheets. Will not pick up matte paper sometimes, gets worse the more I try.

Message says Paper Jam, but there is no paper


Paper jams can be tricky to solve. The paper is usually stuck inside the printer mechanism so even if there is no visible paper jam, you will still get the paper jam error. Try this:

1. Turn off your printer
2. Open all trays and remove any paper stuck there
3. Locate the button to open the printer, open it and remove any paper stuck there also.
4. Repeate the above step for all buttons that you can find to access the inside of the printer
5. Close all doors and put back all trays
6. Turn on your printer

Hello,

It sounds like your fuser is causing the jame,.

when you remove the paper can you wipe the toner off the page or does it adhear to the paper ?

If it does not the fuser is causing the jam, if the toner does not wipe off the paper then the feed tires would be the cause of your jam

The fuser is at the back of the printer and will be very hot, so be careful.

Paper jam error after last page prints


Hi Natoli3,
This could be a mis-match of paper sizes. Example, computer could be sending an A4 page to the printer. The paper size in the could be set to Letter. Ensure the 4 paper sizes match, in the computer - the document and printer driver; in the printer (change in control panel) and paper tray (adjust the physical side and length).

Brother 5250 DN Paper Jams


You problem is actually in the pick-up roller and separation pad areas. the paper is delaying and not making it through to the next check point in the machine fast enough.

1st
Take it by your closest Brother Service Outlet. They're in the phonebook under "Computer Service & Repair". It's a cheap fix but requires parts.

2nd
Use good paper. Paying a little more for paper will save you a lot over time in repairs and premature toner and drum failures. Brother printers are really finicky about paper quality. Recommend "HP Office" brand paper as a minimum. It's a known good paper for general everyday printing and won't break the bank.

Problem with HP 7450 and "Paper Jam"


hi, mezz

try this

There are 2 different types of flashing patterns with those two lights on the printer.
***
Resume light and power light BLINKING ALTERNATELY
Problem: Paper is jammed in the printer.
***
Resume blinking SIMULTANEOUSLY with power light

Problem:
The print cartridge carriage is stuck.

Solution:
1. Open the top of the printer.
2. Remove anything that is blocking the carriage path.
3. Turn the printer off.
4. Turn the printer on.

Problem:
There is something wrong with the printer. (I didn't write it, I am pulling this from actual HP tech documents, so don't blame me on this one) :)
Solution:
Turn the printer off.
Turn the printer on.
If the printer will not turn off, unplug the power cable from the electrical outlet or wall outlet.
Unplug the power cord from the back of the printer.
Wait about 30 seconds.
Plug the power cord back into the wall outlet.
Plug the power cord to the back of the printer.


oke, post in me back

Do not continue this way, you are sure to ruin your paper sensor or the like. Most probably you have a paper jam inside near the carriage or roller. Open at front, check inside for paper jam.
