Why do i have a false jam reading?

I understand that you're receiving what you believe to be a 'false' paper jam on your HP Photosmart C6280 All-in-One Printer. I would like to work with you today with resolving this issue. Paper jams can be real or false. The product might report a paper jam even when there is no jammed paper. A false paper jam may also be the result of having a bad paper jam at a point in time and that bad jam causing a hardware issue to the paper sensor or rollers. I am going to provide you with some additional troubleshooting steps that apply to both real and false paper jams. You did state that you already checked the paper pathway inside the printer and failed to find any evidence of paper being stuck, but please run the step-by-step troubleshooting below, even if you have already run some of the steps.

Here are the steps for clearing the path:

Everytime I try to print it says I have a paper jam. I have completely cleared all paper and it still indicates a jam.

Hi There,

This is a known issue with the
HP Color LaserJet CP 1215 Printer. If your printers formatter is gone bad then you'll have this kind of error with the light status on the printer.

All you need to do is to call the technical support of HP and get the formatter replaced for free if your printer is under warranty.

Hope this solution resolves your issue.
Please vote for me if your issue is resolved.
Enjoy and Cheers !!!!

Frequently this problem is caused by dirty feed rollers. Even dust accumulated inside a printer rarely used can cause this error. Sometime a door is ajar or not seated correctly. See this HP support article for information on how to resolve it. You may also need to refer here and here.
For other issue with your printer, or to pursue other self-help options, see the HP home support site for your model here. & here.
