There are a few common HP printer Problems:
1. Streaks through printing - Clean printhead using windex and alcohol swabs.
Run a "clean printhead cycle"
2. Paper jams: Check all paper paths using a flashlight. Remove rear cover or duplexer to get more access. Even a tiny piece of a paper or another object can disrupt the printer functionality.
3. Skewed printing -
Check for the duplex unit or paper path to be fully inserted on both sides. If skewed printing only appears when making a copy, the scanner lamp is misplaced or out of rail.
Paper will not feed.
Try cleaning the paper pick up roller with some cleaning solution or alcohol swabs. Usually does the trick!
Good luck! HP is a good printer.
If you are getting a 'carriage jam' error as soon as you turn on your 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.
An error code showing that there is paper jam alert, but no paper is in anywhere in the machine except in the tray.....I have checked all areas, taken the back carriage of the unit, opened the top and opened the machine. removed the paper tray, everything, but there is no paper stuck in the unit
Make sure all paper has been removed from the paper path.
Even a small scrap will cause a jam.
The other thing you may want to do is clean the paper rollers with alcohol.
This cleans any paper dust that has gathered on the rollers, and allows better paper movement.
i know you have cleared the jam but i would go back and really look closley at the paper path and the internals a small piece off of a paper can cause this to claim it has a jam also if you turn off the printer and use canned air to blow out the whole insides this will help too also clean offf any lenses with a eyeglass cleaner ok ?

MOST HP PRINTERS HAVE A DOOR ON THE BACK SIDE OF THE PRINTER THAT CAN BE OPENED TO REMOVE A PAPER JAM. HAVE YOU TRIED USING THIS TO CLEAN THE PAPER JAM. THERE MIGHT BE SOMETHING STUCK IN THE PAPER PATH THAT IS CAUSING THE JAMS. CHECK THE WHOLE PAPER PATH FROM THIS REAR ACCESS DOOR. OK?
