Check paper light flashes, when paper loaded and no jam present

I can't really figure out what the problem is. The orange light next to check paper keeps flashing. I have paper loaded and there is no paper jam present. I've checked the front and rear. When I hit resume, it just takes in the paper a few inches and the pauses and repeats the flashing light.

Might be a pending job gone wild. I would turn off the printer, then go to "Control Panel" and click "Printers". Double click the one you're having problem with, delete all printing documents and re-connect the printer.
You can also try a differnt USB cord or port, otherwise - the machine needs a factory reset.

The orange light keeps flashing and it says there is a paper jam but I cleared the paper jam but the orange flashing light will not go off.


1. there is a sensor at the end of the printer which shows paper jam recovery. the sensor of your printer may be jammed. clear the jam and it will work. 2. if not, there may be a small piece of paper near the sensor of your printer. clear it.

Light flashes next to "check printer cartridge"


For an illustrated version of the text below go to: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00095617&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=306895&tmp_track_link=ot_search
Check Paper Light Blinking
Figure 1: Check Paper light blinking At the start or in the middle of a print job, the Check Paper light begins to blink. The unit will not print. If the unit is connected to a computer and the HP software has been installed, one of the following messages is displayed:
  • There is a paper jam (or misfeed). Clear the jam and press the Enter, Resume, or Okay button on the hp psc.
  • The unit is out of paper. Load more paper and press the Enter, Resume, or OK button on the hp psc.
If both the Check Paper and the Check Print Cartridge lights are blinking simultaneously, or if the computer message is The print cartridge carriage is stalled , click here for troubleshooting information . Step 1: If the unit is out of paper, load more paper
  1. Move the paper guide out, load the paper, then adjust the paper guide. Make sure the paper is flat in the tray. Figure 2: Load paper
  2. Press the On/Resume button. Figure 3: On/Resume button
If the unit is loaded with paper and the light is still blinking, go on to the next step. Step 2: Remove jammed paper from the rear of the unit
  1. Unplug the product.
  2. Press the tab on the left side of the rear access door and remove it. Figure 4: Unlatching the rear access door by pressing the tab on the left
  3. Remove all the jammed paper and foreign material. Pull the paper slowly and gently to avoid tearing it or damaging the print mechanism. Avoid touching the internal components.
  4. Replace the rear access door. Put the pins on the right end of the door into the holes on the right side of the rear access area. Then snap the door shut. Figure 5: Door pins in product holes
Step 3: Check the front of the unit for jammed paper
  1. Open the cartridge access door in the front of the unit. Figure 6: Open the cartridge access door
  2. Pull out any jammed paper or other foreign material you were not able to remove from the rear. Pull the paper slowly and carefully to avoid tearing it or damaging the print mechanism.
  3. Close the cartridge access door and plug the product back in.
How to avoid paper jams
  • Only insert paper into the paper tray until it meets resistance - do not push it farther in.
  • Make sure the paper is flat in the paper tray and the guide is adjusted to the width of the paper.
  • Do not add paper while the unit is printing.
  • Remove printed pages frequently.
  • Do not use paper that is too thin, too slick, or that stretches.
  • Do not use torn or creased paper. Paper that has been printed previously may cause jams.
  • Make sure the rear access door is securely fastened.
  • If you follow all these guidelines and still have frequent paper jams, you may need to clean the paper rollers.
Cleaning paper rollers
  1. Turn off the unit, then unplug the power cord.
  2. Remove the rear access door. See the picture above.
  3. Wipe the paper rollers with a lint-free cloth lightly moistened with distilled or bottled water. Rotate the rollers with your fingers to clean all the way around. Figure 7: Paper rollers
  4. Allow the rollers to dry completely, then replace the rear access door. Put the pins on the right end of the door into the holes on the right side of the rear access area, then snap the door shut.
  5. Plug the unit back in and turn it on.

Hp 845c orange light keeps flashing


When the orange light is flashing, either paper jam or ink problem is happening.Try unloaging & reloading the stack of paper in the main tray. Remove & reinsert ink cartridges in the printer. You may also clean the contacts of the cartridge and inside the product.

Problem on a canon 3100


The Power Light Flashes Orange - Error Codes When an error occurs, the power light flashes orange. The number of orange flashes followed by a long green flash indicates the cause of the problem.
Two orange flashes: Out of paper, paper jam, or paper feed error
If no paper is loaded in the auto sheet feeder, or if the paper is not loaded correctly, set the paper correctly and press the Resume button on the printer to continue printing.
Three orange flashes: Paper jam
If paper has jammed in the printer, carefully remove the jam and press the Resume button to continue printing.
Four orange flashes: A tank inside the BJ cartridge (print head) is out of ink
Replace the empty BJ tank and press the Resume button to continue printing.
Five orange flashes: BJ cartridge is not installed properly
Remove and reseat the cartridge correctly. Make sure the orange protective cap and tape have been removed. Make sure the blue locking lever is locked down securely.
Six orange flashes: BJ cartridge (printhead) is not installed
Remove and reseat the cartridge correctly. Make sure the orange protective cap and tape have been removed. Make sure the blue locking lever is locked down securely.
Seven orange flashes: BJ cartridge (printhead) is defective
Remove the BJ cartridge and check that the contacts on the cartridge and cartridge holder are clean. Make sure the orange protective cap and tape have been removed and reinstall the cartridge. If the error occurs again after you resume operation, you may need to replace the BJ cartridge.
Eight orange flashes: Waste ink absorber almost full
The printer has a built-in waste ink absorber to hold the ink that is consumed during print head cleaning. This error indicates that the waste ink absorber is nearly full. Press the Resume button to skip the error so you can continue printing.
The POWER light flashes orange and green alternately: Service error
A service error means the printer requires the attention of a qualified technician. Count the number of flashes. (You may be asked this information.)

Flashing light


Here is what HP has on the subject of the triangle light flashing:
c00028322.gif 1 - Attention Light 2 - Ready Light 3 - Go Light Figure 2: Printer light key c00028323.gif 1 - Symbol for light off 2 - Symbol for light on 3 - Symbol for light blinking
c00028328.gif Door open, media out, no print cartridge, or media jam

The printer is in an error state that requires operator intervention or help. Check the following:
  • The print cartridge door is completely closed.
  • Media is loaded.
  • The print cartridge is correctly installed in the printer.
  • There is no media jam.

Figure 8: Paper jam c00028328.gif 13.JJ.NT JAM IN TRAY 1

13.JJ.NT JAM IN TRAY X

The Attention LED is blinking. Check paper loading then open and close top cover.

When there is a jam in tray 1, verify the paper is loaded correctly, open and close the top cover. Pressing GO is ignored.

When there is a jam in tray X, verify the paper is loaded correctly, open and close the top cover. Pressing GO is ignored. These are the error explanations for just the flashing triangle light, there are many more, but none for just the flashing triangle.

If the light pattern is different let me know (other lights on as well)
-Hope this helps.

The BJC 3000 will flash two different colored lights in a pattern to signal several different errors. From the documentation I have the two colors are orange and green, could those be the colors you see? At any rate here is the code: Two orange flashes: Out of paper, paper jam, or paper feed error. If no paper is loaded in the auto sheet feeder, or if the paper is not loaded correctly, set the paper correctly and press the Resume button on the printer to continue printing. Three orange flashes: Paper jam. If paper has jammed in the printer, carefully remove the jam and press the Resume button to continue printing. Four orange flashes: A tank inside the BJ cartridge (print head) is out of ink. Replace the empty BJ tank and press the Resume button to continue printing. Five orange flashes: BJ cartridge is not installed properly. Remove and reseat the cartridge correctly. Make sure the orange protective cap and tape have been removed. Make sure the blue locking lever is locked down securely. Six orange flashes: BJ cartridge (printhead) is not installed. Remove and reseat the cartridge correctly.

Canon s520


The number of orange flashes between green flashes indicates the type of error, as outlined below. Check the cause and take the appropriate action. Two flashes: Out of paper, paper jam or paper feed error Replace the paper correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button. If paper has jammed in the printer, clear the jam and press the RESUME/CANCEL button. Three flashes: Paper jam If paper has jammed in the printer, clear the jam, replace the paper in the printer correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button. Four flashes: Empty ink tank One of the ink tanks is empty. Replace it. If all of the above won't help, unplug the printer from the power cable, wait a while, and plug in. If that didn't fix you, I guess it's time to get in touch with canon, or a repair lab you trust. Good luck
