Paper Jams

If you are experiencing paper jams, don't add paper while the printer is running, and remove paper in the output tray so it doesn't stack up. When loading more paper, take out the paper that is already in the tray and stack it on top of the new paper. Use only paper that is free of paper clips or staples, and store unused paper flat.

All Printer Lights Are Lit

If every light on the front panel is lit, the printer has experienced a fatal error. There is an easy solution. Unplug the printer from the power supply. Let 30 minutes pass and then plug the printer back in. The printer will go through the resetting movements and then function correctly again.

Paper Is Not Being Pulled From Input Tray

If the printer does not pull paper from the input tray, clean the pickup roller that guides the paper through. Make sure that the paper guides are not too tight, and make sure the printer setting is in automatic and not manual feed mode. You can find detailed instructions for these solutions on the HP website (see Resources).
