Well it's likely two cause in your case - 1.- It might be a misplaced actuator, check for instructions at: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&lang=en&cc=us&product=58057&dl...
2.- Check the power supply and its cable. It might be at the end of its life. Ideally, you should check the power supply under load at its limit. You may use a resistor rated for the load. It will be HOT, be careful. If you don't have it, might be more cumbersome, but you can use the printer as load, and make a test connector that allow you access to voltage terminals.
Hi, Remove the jammed
paper. Unplug the printer from the mains and PC. Inspect the rollers, etc for
tiny paper piece(s) that may be stuck, or other debris. Try to clean rollers
and make sure they are dry. Keep printer unplugged for about 2 minutes and
replug and try a test print. Also make sure that you have waited long enough
for the printer to heat up before giving a print job. Finally, it could be an issue with the paper
sensor. If this is the case, you will probably have to take the printer in for
Unplug the printer, open the lid, make sure there is nothing jammed in the feeder. Then take the paper out of the feed tray, straighten it out again, and then re insert it into the paper tray and power up. I have the same printer and this has happened to me several times before. If that doesn't work, chat with HP tech support for this series printer @ http://h50203.www5.hp.com/hpisweb/customer/HPInstantsupport.aspx?&cc=us&lang=en
Each printer has a sensor that determines when there is no paper, on cheaper printers like deskjets it tries to feed the paper and when it fials it gives this error. The feeder for the printer is most likley bad, replcaement is the most cost effective solution , repairing it would be more then a new unit.
Try putting Isopropyl alcohol on the feed rollers. These rollers become hard and smooth with time and cause all sorts of paper feed problems. You can find isopropyl alcohol at any drug store(it is rubbing alcohol).
1. Prepare your doc/file for printing. 2. Insert card stock with narrow side of stock in slot in back of printer until it hits rollers and stops. Don't force in any card stock thicker than max. rated. 3. Change printer setup to feed from rear. 4. Print.
Depending on what software you print from, you may need to change this each time you print if you intend to keep printing from that "tray."
I have a HP Deskjet 3940 printer. And similarly to this problem here I had a paper jam that would not clear, despite removing all the paper that was stuck in it, and following all 4 steps stated on the HP website. Such as taking the back cover off and blowing dust away and turning it off and on, etc.
None of these steps worked for me and consequently I couldnt get any new jobs to print - kept saying 'paper jam'. I was about to head down the shop to buy a new printer when i tried one last thing, which HAS fixed the problem!
I put in a large stack of paper onto the feeder. and then pushed it forcefully in and out repeatedly. To my amazement this has solved the paper jam. As a very last resort, might be worth trying this?
