    Jessica: OK, you reloaded the printer driver and looked really carefully at the paper pick-up area as well as cleaning the pickup and feed rollers. Pull the ink cartridges and gently scrub the metal contact plate with a clean rag and a little alcohol. Look in the machine where the ink cartridges fit and you will see the metal contact plate that each cartridge contacts. Clean them also.

    Sorry for the interruption... Make sure that the ink cartridges are NOT refills, but new HP cartridges. Each manufacturer uses ink cartridges that have a specific electrical current capacity, and many times, a refilled cartridge will have the wrong ink. If the incorrect ink is detected by the machine, the printing process will stop, and the sensor flag will detect the sheet of paper while the machine is stopped and give a jam message, so try working with genuine Hewlett-Packard ink cartridges and clean the ink cartridge contacts in the machine... I'll check back to try any other solutions if that doesn't work. R.

This could be one of a few things... First, Windows 8 is a completely different animal from Windows XP! Try reloading your printer driver in Windows 8. If this doesn\'t work, you need to clean the paper pickup rollers at the front of the printer (where the paper first feeds into the machine. I use a Q-tip moistened (not sopping wet) with rubbing alcohol... gently scrub the whole pickup roller and then the feed roller next to it. Check carefully (with a flashlight) for any shards of paper that might be blocking the paper path. There is also a sensor flag (small finger of plastic) sticking up that the paper must hit to let the printer know that the paper is feeding through. If you do not see the sensor flag, it is either jammed or has been broken off when a piece of paper was pulled backward out of the paper feed area. First reload the printer driver, and try to print. If it doesn\'t print, check and clean the rollers and look for the sensor flag.

Testimonial: "Thank you I tried all of what you said it it STILL will not print will not scan error paper jammed error or ink error. Every day that this thing is not working is another day were I'm not earning anything I Have to be able to scan my art work, and print out things. There is nothing jamming the printer I have looked the ink cartrages are brand new i feel that my printer is not reading things correctly and is giving these errors, because it does not have an error to go with whats wrong? Have had actual jams before it's not acting the same way, can't put my finger on it."

    Have Original ink not refills. still not solved. i\'ve come to the conclusion that it\'s not compatible with windows 8 I\'ve had this printer/scanner/copter for about 11 years. :P Along with finally finding in the HP website that there are no driver updates for this computer for windows 8. So pretty much im with out one for a while *sighs* Also this is my priner this site does not have it on the list of ones to choose from. HP Deskjet 1050 J410 series it\'s around 11 years old now. This "lovely" litter only has a cuddy flap undr it to pull out any paper so pretty much theres no way to get in teh thing to relly check things. :/ all seamlessly one pieace around the sides.

I have a HP LaserJet 1312nfi that is giving me a FALSE paper jam message. I repeat - FALSE PAPER JAM IN BACK DOOR. False false false. I have uninstalled it on my computer and nothing. I have opened it...

Hello Chris! Welcome to FixYa!

If you are facing False Paper Jam error in your HP Laser Jet 1312nfi but If you cant see any obvious paper jams, try to look closely into the rollers or the inside. There could be some tiny paper shreds stuck within those rollers. Or there could be a tiny piece of paper blocking the printer's sensor and thus giving you a false paper jam error.
The rollers should be cleaned if the paper fails to feed smoothly into the unit. All document and media rollers should be cleaned using a lint-free cloth lightly moistened with water.

1. Turn Off the printer and unplugged power before cleaning the rollers. This will allow the rollers to be turned by hand in most cases.
2. Remove the rear access door to access the rollers. Clean any dust and debris from the rollers.
3. Open the back of the printer and check metal paper rollers (not the rubber rollers) in the interior of the printer. They should be clean and move freely. If these are not bright and shinny or have buildup on them, they should be cleaned. Also clean any dust and debris off of the rubber rollers.
4. Close the back cover and reattach the rear access door.
5. Plug the power cord back in and power the unit up. It should reinitialize for about 20 seconds.
6. Print another extended self-test page.
After following these steps carefully, False Error message will be disappeared.
I hope this solution helps you
Let me know if you have any confusion in your mind.

Sir, Your Rating as FIVE Stars for this solution and words of appreciation will be esteemed

Thank You for taking my service

While printing with OKI C5600 very often error message pops up about jammed paper though no REAL jam happened. To solve I just open and close paper tray and front door. JAM PAPER error is real pain if...

Have you tried cleaning the paper feed roller(s)? Either soap & water OR isopropyl alchohol with a cotton ball will do, just make sure the rollers are dry before trying to print again, otherwise damage to imaging unit (drum/toner unit) could occurr. If the printer doesn't feed in the first place, the printer thinks it has a jammed paper, thus opening paper tray and front cover resets misfeed/ jam condition. Let me know your progress....Tim

Sencor problem

Pull the paper tray out and look inside.You'll see the feed roller.It needs to be cleaned with alcohol or water.Usually,paper dust on the roller causing it to loose friction and it starts slipping during paper feed,and printer jams.

Hp 4250 tn when i try to print get an error 13.05.00 papper never makes it though the fuser

Error message means "Media is jammed at the specified location (and possibly at other locations). If the message persists after all jams have been cleared, a sensor or sensor lever might be stuck or broken."

For all jam messages, do the following: 1. Remove jammed print media from the specified location. Check the entire paper path for other pieces of media in the path. 2. Open and close the top cover to clear the message. 3. Check sensors and flags in the paper path for proper operation.

Try cleaning your feed rollers...
There are two types of rollers in printers: hard plastic and rubber. Plastic rollers can be cleaned with alcohol (isopropyl). Rubber rollers can be cleaned with a rubber roller cleaner and restorer like the one in the link (you can find other brands, but make sure its for rubber).

Samsung 3561ND fails to print double sided.

Do you use the duplexer a lot? It sounds as if the rollers inside need to be cleaned. I don't recommend doing this yourself as it involves lifting the printer off of the duplexer, and I don't want to be responsible if you accidentally drop the printer or you or someone gets hurt. But that's how to get to it; the offending rollers should be visible, and may be cleaned with a clean rag moistened with a multi-purpose cleaner. Alcohol is what's recommended, but I shy away from it as it's known to dry the rubber, and all you want to do it clean the built-up dirt and paper duct off of it. Let me know how it works, if you do it! If you opt not to, call a qualified printer technician.
