Clean the paper feed tires with some alcahol. they are located in the upper part of the machine when you pull out the paper tray. they are gray in color. if that does not work the feed tires may need replaced.

1. Check the paper size your printing on and whether the Same is used by printer or not 2. Try shaking the cartridges as they may have got stuck at their places for long time 3. Try legal or a4 or letter size for paper

Paper Jam error


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 thatyou 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 servicing..

Hope that helps!

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

Message says Paper Jam, but there is no paper


Paper jams can be tricky to solve. The paper is usually stuck inside the printer mechanism so even if there is no visible paper jam, you will still get the paper jam error. Try this:

1. Turn off your printer
2. Open all trays and remove any paper stuck there
3. Locate the button to open the printer, open it and remove any paper stuck there also.
4. Repeate the above step for all buttons that you can find to access the inside of the printer
5. Close all doors and put back all trays
6. Turn on your printer

When going to print paper is pulled in angled and jams thanks


i do not know the model of the printer that you have, but the most common problem is that you have something stuck in the area where the paper is not being pulled in. You might have a small piece of paper jammed in there or some foreign object. It is also possible your sensor is jammed and the paper is hitting it.

Lastly, if you have 2 pickup rollers (depends on the printer that you have), one could be worn out.

thanks adi

Epson Stylus 580rx won't identify vellum paper


Ran into the same problem. The problem is that the printer's paper sensor sees through the vellum and therefore doesn't think any paper moved into the print position. To use vellum, fold up 1/4" edge on a standard peice of print paper and place the leading edge of the vellum under the flap. Place the paper and vellum into the printer and print. The printer will pull in the paper and the vellum together. Make the paper fold tight and straight to prevent jamming. You will need to feed one sheet at a time. Also the Epson inks take a long time to dry on vellum. I let mine dry overnight.

Problem with HP 7450 and "Paper Jam"


hi, mezz

try this

There are 2 different types of flashing patterns with those two lights on the printer.
***
Resume light and power light BLINKING ALTERNATELY
Problem: Paper is jammed in the printer.
***
Resume blinking SIMULTANEOUSLY with power light

Problem:
The print cartridge carriage is stuck.

Solution:
1. Open the top of the printer.
2. Remove anything that is blocking the carriage path.
3. Turn the printer off.
4. Turn the printer on.

Problem:
There is something wrong with the printer. (I didn't write it, I am pulling this from actual HP tech documents, so don't blame me on this one) :)
Solution:
Turn the printer off.
Turn the printer on.
If the printer will not turn off, unplug the power cable from the electrical outlet or wall outlet.
Unplug the power cord from the back of the printer.
Wait about 30 seconds.
Plug the power cord back into the wall outlet.
Plug the power cord to the back of the printer.
