I dont' think there is a site that exists. If this is a paper jam that occurs every few pages or so...you most likely will need to replace your pickup roller (located up under the machine after removing the cassette

Shows out of paper. Says paper jam. Open door . Clear carriage. Press ok. Cannot solve problem!!! 75 years old with 1st computer!


Out of paper
Cause: There is not enough paper in the input tray.
Solution: If the HP All-in-One is out of paper or there are only a few sheets
remaining, load more paper in the input tray. If there is paper in the input tray, remove
the paper, tap the stack of paper against a flat surface, and reload the paper into the
input tray. To continue your print job, press OK on the control panel of the HP All-in-
One.
Cause: The rear door is off the HP All-in-One.
Solution: If you removed the rear door to clear a paper jam, replace it.
rear door.
Paper can also jam in the automatic document feeder. Several common actions can
cause paper to jam the automatic document feeder:
• Placing too much paper in the document feeder tray. For information on the maximum
number of sheets allowed in the automatic document feeder, see Technical
information.
• Using paper that is too thick or too thin for the HP All-in-One.
• Trying to add paper to the document feeder tray while the HP All-in-One is feeding
pages.
To clear a paper jam from the rear door
1. Press in the tab on the left side of the rear door to release the door. Remove the door
by pulling it away from the HP All-in-One.
CAUTION: Trying to clear a paper jam from the front of the HP All-in-One can
damage the print mechanism. Always access and clear paper jams through the
rear door.

Try clearing all paper from all carriages (Top,Rear, Front, etc. then reinserting proper amounts. Even the smallest piece of paper can cause a jam. Here is a user manual in case you don't have one you can get it here: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00844812.pdf

This is a PDF and it is searchable and easy to navigate (Red lettering will take you to that section), so you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader (if you don't already have it you can get free here:
http://get.adobe.com/reader/
Also, once you have done all you can turn the printer off for a moment then turn it back on.
Hope this helps. Good luck

The printer is constantly sending a message- 'paper jam'


HP Officejet 7200, 7300, and 7400 Series - 'Paper Jam: Clear jam, and then press Enter' Message Displays on the Control Panel Display
Issue
During printing, the paper becomes stuck in the all-in-one and the error message 'Paper Jam: Clear jam, and then press Enter' displays on the control panel display.
Solution
Use the following instructions to clear a paper jam from the product:
Step one: Check for and remove any loose paper from the In tray
Do not try to remove jammed paper from the In tray. First remove any loose paper from the In tray to avoid worsening the jam.
CAUTION: Always try to remove jammed paper from the back of the printer first to avoid mechanical damage.
Step two: Clear the jam from the back of the printer
Follow these instructions to clear jammed paper from the back of the product. If the product is equipped with a two-sided printing accessory, skip to that section.
Remove the rear access door to clear the paper jam

1. Remove the rear access door by pressing the buttons on the side of the door and pulling it toward you.
Figure 1: Removing the rear access door
Rear access door
2. Gently pull the jammed paper out of the rollers.
WARNING: If the paper tears while removing it from the rollers, check the rollers and wheels for torn pieces of paper that might remain inside the product. If all the pieces of paper are not removed from the product, more paper jams might occur.
3. Replace the rear access door. Gently push the door into the all-in-one until it snaps firmly into place.

Remove the two-sided printing accessory to clear the paper jam

1. Remove the two-sided printing accessory by pressing in the buttons on the sides and then pulling the accessory toward you.
Figure 2: Removing the two-sided printing accessory
2. Gently remove any jammed paper.
WARNING: If the paper tears while removing it from the rollers, check the rollers and wheels for torn pieces of paper that might remain inside the accessory. If all the pieces of paper are not removed from the accessory, more paper jams might occur.
3. Press the button on top of the two-sided printing accessory to open the door.
Figure 3: Opening the two-sided printing accessory door
4. Gently pull the jammed paper out of the rollers.
5. Close the accessory door.
6. Reinstall the two-sided printing accessory.

Step three: Clear the jam from the automatic document feeder (ADF)

1. Remove the document feeder tray from the product by gently pulling it.
2. Lift the cover of the automatic document feeder by pulling it outward.
Figure 4: Lifting the cover of the automatic document feeder
Automatic document feeder (ADF) door
3. Gently pull the jammed paper out of the rollers.
WARNING: In the rare occurrence of a severe paper jam, you might need to remove the face plate from the front of the automatic document feeder and lift the pick assembly to remove torn pieces of paper from deep inside the automatic document feeder.
4. Close the cover of the automatic document feeder, and then reattach the document feeder tray.

Step four: Verify that the print carriage can move freely
Follow these steps to try to move the print carriage.
CAUTION: Do not force the print carriage to move if it is out of plain view or feels stuck. Forcing it may damage the printer.

1. With the product turned on, open the print cartridge access door. The print carriage might try to move into the access area. If so, allow it to move to that position.
2. Without turning off the product, unplug the power cord from the back of the product. Unplug the power cord from the power source. The power cord must be unplugged to allow the parts to be moved by hand and to reset the paper feed mechanism, without the risk of an electrical shock.
3. Looking in through either the print cartridge access door or the output paper tray, make sure the print cartridges are locked into the carriage and have not come loose. Also, make sure that there are no obstructions under or around the carriage to block it from moving.
4. Make sure the print carriage can move freely across the width of the product by gently pushing the carriage to the left and then to the right. Clear any obstructions found.
You may have to reach through the output paper tray to access the print carriage.
5. Close the print cartridge access door and plug the power cord back to the back of the product. Plug the power cord into the power source.
6. Press the On button to turn on the product.

Step five: Reload and test the printer
After you have removed the jammed paper, make sure the product is still functioning properly.

1. Reload the product with plain paper.
2. Peform a self-test by pressing and holding the RESUME button on the control panel until the product begins printing. A test page prints.

Step six: Service the printer
If you have completed all the steps listed above and are still experiencing a problem, service the product.

Printing pictures photo paper gets jammed half way?


There are many reasons why your photo paper gets jammed, but here the most common ones:

- The photo paper is crumpled, or the edges are fold. Be sure that the paper is completely straightened out before putting it in the feeder.
- Your tray lock is larger than your paper. It is recommended that you keep your tray holder lock the size of your paper. The best way is still to keep a .5cm allowance.
- There is something blocking the feeder which causes the paper to go out of track. Are you sure there isn't a crumpled paper or torn paper left with the feeder?

HTH!

Documnet feeder jam


Check input paper feeder at top too - easy to miss. Top flips open with a firm (but not excessive) pull, so you can look there.

If you are sure you've opened and looked under every available panel on the printer (there are many!), turn it off and unplug for half a minute. Make sure all panels are back properly in place, but leave out the paper tray (and no paper either in the rear input paper feeder).

Plug in and turn on. Wait for it to finish its start-up sequence - it should complain about no paper.

Check the paper is flat and straight in the paper tray, and no excess room between paper and guides, and put it in again.

Print test page.

How is it now?

Lexmark t640: paper jam in the back door. I can see the edge of the paper. How do I release the tension on the rollers so I can slide it out? Now it is in there tight and to grab it just tears off a piece...


Hope this helps....
Explanation of the paper jam message

A 241.09 Paper Jam message indicates that the printer thinks a sheet of paper has jammed at the front of the printer. The jammed sheet of paper is most likely to be found in one of the paper trays or under the toner cartridge.
NOTE: If you select Show areas on the operator panel, you can view one or more images to help you locate and clear the jam.

Clearing the jam
To resolve the paper jam message, you must first clear the entire paper path. To access the jam area, you will need to open one or more of the paper trays. Follow the steps in the table below to help you locate and clear the jam.
Step Action Image 1 Open the printer paper tray (tray 1), and remove any jammed media you find there. pattlnk_10222007_1922-enus28872_24109paperjam1_t64x_en_us.gif 2 Open the front cover and remove the toner cartridge. Examine the area inside the printer and remove any jammed media you find there. pattlnk_10242007_159-enus28872_24109paperjam5_t64x_en_us.gif 3 If you have a duplex option installed, also remove the duplex access tray and remove any jammed media you find there. pattlnk_10302007_1559-enus28860_24x17paperjamduplex_t64x_en_us.gif 4 If you were printing from an optional paper tray, such as tray 2 or tray 3, open any optional trays, starting at the top, and remove any jammed media. Pull the print media either up or down. If it does not pull easily one way, try the other way pattlnk_10222007_1957-enus28872_24109paperjam3_t64x_en_us.gif 5 If you are printing from an optional 2000-sheet feeder, open the front door. Press the elevator button (A) to lower the tray. Remove any partially fed media from the feeder.
NOTE: Make sure the stack of print media is straight and pushed all of the way into the feeder. Incorrectly loaded paper is the most common cause of paper jams from a 2000-sheet feeder option.
pattlnk_10222007_2110-enus28872_24109paperjam4_t64x_en_us.gif
For a larger image, click here. 6 Finally, reinstall all of the paper trays and press the pattlnk_10222007_2117-select_button.jpg button to try printing again.
NOTE: You may receive a different paper jam message informing you that another sheet of paper is jammed elsewhere in the printer. If this occurs, the error code will indicate the location. Click here for a diagram showing the error code locations. The paper path will vary, depending on the paper source and number of paper feed options installed.
Remove any jammed sheets of paper you find and try printing again.
