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. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the printer. Press in the tab on the left side of the rear door to release the door.
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.
Common causes of paper jams include: Damaged rollers. Inserting paper that is incompatible with the printer. Loading the paper incorrectly.
A piece of paper stuck in the paper tray or inside the printer can create a paper jam. Paper jams can occur for a variety of reasons, such as overloading the paper tray, loading different thicknesses of paper in the tray, or using paper that isn`t appropriate for your particular printer.
A paper jam is when paper or other printed material gets stuck or lodged in a printer and cannot eject.

Paper Jam and carriage jam code when nothing is jammed
ANSWER : Did you try cleaning the encoder strip that runs through the cartridge assy.? Use Window Cleaner on a paper towel. Also, check inside on the right. I’ve seen a lot of times where there is a folded up scrap of paper that stops the carriage from going all the way to the right.

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 Officejet Pro 8500 Wireless with fake paper jam
ANSWER : HP Officejet is by far one of the frustrating piece of equipment I have ever owned. I bought it as unused in the package, at that point no warranty left. less than 6 months and 500 pages the white cog gear wheel broke. Luckily with instructions in this site I manage to glue it back together. Then I bought new ink – problems started as they were not original HP 30$ per cartridge. Ordered originals (here in China), took over one week to get them. Then found out that printhead needed to be replaced => more than 100$ spent. Still constant problems: If my wife kids print, I need to be stand-by as you never know what happens. Really an Office level equipment. After cleaning one paper jam I broke the encoder tape, took me another 4 hours to get it fixed. Then broke the cog gear again and got it displaced. Another 4 hours. Only reason I am not throwing this s***t out of window is that there are still ink left. Luckily this drinks them like a horse, for sure I will no more buy new ink. I will get a new laser instead, and not from HP. About cog wheel fixing: make sure that the white wheel is positioned correctly so that the small torx in shaft goes into the slit in the white wheel. When fitting the black cover back, make sure that the white washers on both sides fit into to slits of the black cover. Good luck.
