Question about Apple HP DeskJet 840c InkJet Printer

Printer has suddenly stopped working

I was printing away this morning when the printer stopped in mid task with a piece of paper still in the rollers. Both of the lights on the right-hand side were flashing. There are two nearly new cartidges in the machine and I was able to remove the partly printed sheet easily by removing the cover from the back. Visual inspection shows there is nothing jammed in the print path. I switched off both the printer and the PC and left them off for two hours, but on re-connecting the two lights continue to flash and the printer will not accept any instructions. Any ideas?

Hi, I'm having a paper feed problem. When I go to print it will feed the paper in mid way then stop and no longer take the paper to feed???

Remove all paper.

Check for any particals of old paper and dust in tracks.

Blow tiny dust away or use vacuum cleaner

Insert a little paper.

Go into maintenance mode to check all is working OK.

Try printing normally again.

A piece of paper is stuck inside. I tried to pull it out from the paper tray end but it has now receeded and I cant print or get it out, any ideas?This occurred when I stopped the print run mid- print by...

Just open the front door and take out he toner/drum cartridge, remove the paper cassette, best is to pull the paper forward toward the inside of printer, if none is visible you can push an index card up from the front to push out any scraps.

The paper doesnt feed all the way thru the printer

You should try to delete all piece of paper from printer for the further successful work. The Stranger subjects such as pencils and piece of the paper create the serious obstacles on way of the following of the sheet through your device.

Use the lamp for подсветки, tweezers and knack.

Good luck.

Epson R320 "General Error" message - unable to clear

If you are getting a 'carriage jam' error as soon as you turn on your Epson printer with no tasks in progress, then check for any piece of paper stuck in the carriage. Remove the paper carefully. If the paper tears, part of it might remain inside the paper path and damage the product.

Fix 'Carriage Jam' : Open Door, clear carriage jam,
and then press OK to continue' error message
Turn off the printer and open it to see where the paper is stuck.
Manually move the carriage toward the opposite side.
Check the paper path and remove any piece of paper or any other object that is stuck in the path.
Reconnect the power cord and turn on the printer.

Only print the printed paper.

IF YOU TAKE OUT THE TONER AND TURN IT SO THAT YOU CAN SEE THE DRUM (GREEN ROLLER) YOU WILL SEE AN ASSEMBLY SCREW ON THE RIGHT HAND SIDE. YOU WILL SEE THAT IT LOOKS LIKE A PIECE OF PLASTIC WERE BROKEN OF. MELT A LITTLE PIECE OF PLASTIC ON THERE TO EXTEND IT WITH ABOUT 5MM. IT IS USED TO PRESS A SWITCH INSIDE THE PRINTER. IF THAT SWITCH IS NOT PRESSED THE PAPER ONLY FEEDS UP TO THE DRUM.

Hp deskjet 960c

You say it stopped working mid-print... possible paper jam? Ink cartridge not clicked in all the way? (they should all line up evenly across the tops).
In control panel->printers and faxes, right click on Canoni960 and choose properties. In maintenance tab try to do nozzle check and print head alignment. In lower right corner is status monitor, click to see if any useful information in there.
