Dust, paper fiber, and other debris might accumulate on the paper feed rollers and cause paper jams and paper feed issues. Clean the rollers inside the printer, and then try to print again. Turn off the printer, and then disconnect the power cord.
Turn off the printer, and then unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet. Remove any paper from the input tray. Open the rear access door, and then clean the paper feed rollers with a lint-free cloth lightly moistened with filtered water. Wait 10 minutes for the rollers to dry.
Loading paper that is stuck together, frayed, curled or bent can cause a jam. Overloading the paper tray, loading different thicknesses of paper in the tray or using paper that isn`t appropriate for your particular printer can all result in a jammed printer.
Low-quality paper leaves an accumulation of tiny paper bits often referred to as “paper dust” inside the machine. This “dust” is one of the top causes of paper jams. More dust means more jams. Besides jams, the dust also contributes to poor-quality prints and causes machine parts to wear at a faster rate.
From the control panel go to : setup menu>printer maintenance and then select either cold reset or factory reset. cold reset: Resets printer to out-of-box condition, startup questions like self or IT managed will appear are initial prompts again.
Make sure the carriage can move freely across the width of the printer. Firmly push the carriage to the left side of the printer, and then push it to the right side.

Paper Jam and carriage jam code when nothing is jammed

Paper Jam error but no paper jam
ANSWER : Obviously you didn’t get all the paper cleared out. There is a small scrap in the paper path causing the jam when the paper hits it. You can try clearing it out by inserting something stiff like a piece of file folder from the back of the printer into the paper path and pushing the offending piece out that way.

HP LaserJet 4200 paper jam fix
ANSWER : Yes, thank you! You did a thorough post! If your still hacking away at HP’printers you will know that unfortunately HP kept using that type of solenoid with the “Sticky Mess” on all of their new Equipment. I use this method almost everyday (without removing the actual solenoid). I’ve replaced so many I got carried away and now, I sell a solenoid repair kit! It’s for those people that like convenience. I provide a professional supply of perfect material with sticky back tape pre-cut to exact dimensions! All in a little kit. I have install videos, (I don’t charge for that I believe in the Do-it -Yourself approach.) Sorry for the sales pitch… but here is my link.

Paper jam in tray 2 (but no paper pulled from tray) also M476DN models
ANSWER : Isopropyl alcohol is not recommended for rubber rollers. It dries out the rubber and hasten it’s cracking and breaking. It will do nothing to restore the grip. Those rollers are really hard to replace. It would be easy if that dumbass secondary menu really worked. None of the techs I’ve spoke to ever got into it. Everyone I know sends a print job and listens for the roller to rotate into position where you can pull it off.
