SOURCE: Paper Feed Problem

This is caused by the solenoid that is activated when picking up the paper. The solenoid is activated and the device goes through the motions of picking up the paper. It fails to pick up the paper or fully feed it past the leading edge sensor resulting in a jam error. You should replace the pick up solenoid assy and also the pick up roller and friction pads.

SOURCE: Printer not feeding paper properly or at all..

Mine had a crumpled up shred of paper in it. I had to unbend a paper clip to dig it out. After alot of digging, and shaking, and partially disassembling the printer, I got it out. Thanks for the tip

SOURCE: hp deskjet 6980 blinking lights

ok so for this situation you have to do a cold reset, and by this you have to go ahead while the printer is still power on, disconnect the power cord in back of the printer, and wait for about two minutes. power on the printer if printer still has the blinking lights then go to step 2.

step 2-after this check the printer if light are still blinking, then your going to remove all printheads, remove paper, and then unplug printer power cord from printer and also from the wall outlet, wait for 20 seconds, then power on the printer, wait for light to flash then install the printheads, put paper, and press the resume button.
*** always connect your printer to a wall outlet never to a power strip, the power strip robs some of the power from the printer***
and this should fix the problem if it doesnt then the carriage might me malfunctioning . hp recently did a recall on some printer with the 6940 and some of the 6980, that the carriage broken.

Hope this help!

Unplug the power and replug it .
Make sure you removed the protection tape from the cartridge.
