System Error after a printer jam

I am trying to print on my Compaq A4000. It said I had a paper jam. I checked everything...can't find a jam. I hit the start button like it said to and now I get a system error. I can't find the paper jam and can't get past the system error. Any ideas what to do next?

I have an epson printer and when I hit print, the paper slides right thru & says paper jam

  • Carefully remove the jammed photo paper. Gently pull the paper up and out of the paper feeder tray.

    Reload the paper into the tray. Stack the paper on a flat surface and then carefully slide the paper stack straight into the paper feeder tray---along and aligned with the right side of the tray. Secure the stack in place by sliding the left "edge guide" against the paper stack.

    Press the "OK" button to resume printing. If you had a "Paper is jammed in the printer..." error message displayed on the control panel LCD, pressing "OK" should also clear the message.

    Pull the paper from the printer, if the status message reappears and/or the printer doesn't print, and check the paper for folds, buckling and curled edges or corners. Also check the sheets for sticking. If any of your sheets stick or have damage, remove them from your photo paper stack and replace with new sheets. Reload the paper and press "OK" to try again.

    I have a compaq ij650 series printer both lights are vlinking and wont print it means paper jam but there is not paper in the printer

    Make sure you check up in the rollers for paper. Even a small piece of paper will cause the light to be on. If nothing found you may have to reset printer to clear error.

    My Canon i 560 s will not print and this is the error message, I followed instructions, no change, won't print, yellow light flashes ,"Operator error. Press the printer's RESUME button. If this doesn't...

    Turn off your PC, turn off the printer. Open the printer and check for paper jams, push/pull the ink cartridge carrier left to right to ensure it also isn't jammed.

    Only use a small amount of paper (10 sheets). Too much paper can sometimes block the feeder

    Turn everything back on, try again.

    Printer paused-unable to read

    HI there,

    1. First, clean your printer. Get some spray-n-wipe cleaner and a clean cloth and clean the entire inside of the printer. Also ensure your paper isn't dirty. Now print a test page. Does the symptom persist?
    2. Remove all jammed paper. Check the paper tray first. Look closely at the paper rollers nearest where the paper exits the printer; this is a common source of jams. If you’re trying to print labels, they will often jam just before exiting the printer.
    3. Try to print a test page. Does the printer still jam? If you can find no source of the jamming, check the printer's message display window and refer to your user’s manual to look up the printer error code.

    Everytime I try to print to my PIXMA 9000 I get an error from the print spooler that the printer is not responding. THe print job starts to print, stalls after a few lines.

    1. Check the printer and/or the software to see if "manual feed" is selected. If manual feed is selected, the printer may be looking for paper in another tray.
    2. Reseat paper. Ensure printer is on-line. Check for paper jams or obstructions.
    3. Likely suspect: paper-out sensor is damaged or broken. Consult a computer repair shop.

    Printer prints very light

    Download the software for your printer at the manufacturers website. Here is the link for your printers software : http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&cc=us&lang=en&dlc=en&product=216828&

    Pick the version for which operating system you are using. Once you install the software you will have full control of your printer again and you can set how dark you want your copies.

    I hope this is helpful to you, If it is please give me a good feedback.

    Paper Jam

    Just check the rollers for debris or any tiny piece of paper. Sometimes using refilled cartridges also can cause this error. Should that not work, you could try a hard reset: unplug printer from pc and mains. wait about 10-15 minutes and while holding down the power button, connect to mains and tho pc. Hopefully that should work.
