How to Identify and Fix Common Problems ?

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.
If the paper is even slightly askew, the rollers will pick it up a little crooked, and — guess what — the crooked sheet will immediately get jammed. So even though there`s no paper stuck when you start printing, the loose paper guides are ensuring that a sheet gets jammed whenever the printer starts doing its thing.
During a print job, the printer stops feeding pages, and a Paper Jam error message displays on the printer control panel. This indicates that paper might be jammed inside the printer. note: Paper jams can be real or false. The printer might report a paper jam even when there is no jammed paper.
Slide the paper all the way into the printer. The leading edge of the paper will stop at the Paper Drive Roller. Locate the Paper Sensor/OOPs sensor on the right side of the paper path. It can be seen from the top of the printer with the Top Cover open and has red, black, and blue wires attached to it.
Over time buildup reduces the quality of your prints and is also a common cause of paper jams. It is also worth noting, if your machine has been idle for an extended amount of time, you should change out the cartridge. Old toner can cause printing and jamming problems of its own.
If you open HP support assistant and click on the gear icon to enter settings. Here you can change Notifications and pop-ups.
To disable the message / checks, you will need to disable web services and HP ePrint settings. On the printer menu, navigate to settings > Web Service Settings > and set `HP ePrint` to off and Remove web services. This should prevent Instant ink checks.
One sensor is located in the printer carriage. A second sensor—the Auto Sense sensor—is located in the back of the printer near the paper `clean out` area. Each sensor performs a specific set of media detection functions.
Did you know most copier paper jams are caused by the paper itself? Misaligned paper. When a stack of paper isn`t aligned properly in the machine, it often causes a paper jam issue. When adding a ream of paper, always fan the paper, load carefully and avoid overstuffing the tray.
It`s a pretty simple process:
Unplug the power cable from the wall outlet. Wait 15 seconds. Plug the power cable into the back of the printer. Plug the printer back into the wall outlet.

Take it back and exchange it under warranty.
My printer feeds through one piece of paper all the way and then a half piece of paper and stops. I pull out the paper to stop the paper jam and then it prints but sounds rough. After printing, it doesn't feed the paper all the way through.
And the first 2 sheets, the full and half sheet that go through first, are blank.
Paper Jam error but no paper jam
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.
Keep getting a paper jam message. There is no jam.
You can quit wondering. Parts are unavailable. I’ve seen posts where people have 3D printed the parts or machined them out of metal.

Paper Jam and carriage jam code when nothing is jammed
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.
HP Officejet Pro 8500 Wireless with fake paper jam
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.
