My HP OfficeJet 6962 is less than 2 years old. Prior to a couple of days ago it was printing fine. Then it stopped printing in color, despite indicating that the cartridges were full. I changed the cartridges and it turned out that the color cartridges were all empty. Now this stupid printer "jams" constantly. After anything this printer does it goes into a "Printer Maintenance" mode. Print a copy, it goes into "Printer Maintenance." Clean the print heads once, it runs everything just fine, but if you have to clean the print heads a second time, it goes into "Printer Maintenance" mode. Every time it goes into this mode the screen shows the message "Printer maintenance in progress. Do not interrupt." I can hear rollers turning inside, and hear the print carriage cycling back and forth. As long as there is no paper in the printer, it finishes "Printer Maintenance" and goes back to normal, and I can print one print job (it then goes into "Printer Maintenance" mode and stops working). If there is paper in the printer, it asks me to select the paper type. I select the paper type, and then it goes back into "Printer Maintenance" and "jams" a sheet of paper in the duplex unit. I then get a message telling me that there is a jam, and that I need to clear the jammed paper. If I just hit 'OK' it spits out the "jammed" sheet of paper just fine and goes back into "Printer Maintenance." It will continue this way as long as someone is willing to sit here pressing "OK." If I open the printer and remove the perfectly good, unjammed sheet of paper, it goes back into "Printer Maintenance" and repeats over and over and over and over and over......
I have been through every accessible inch of this printer and have found nothing that could be causing a paper jam. I am well beyond frustrated here. I have tried every "fix" out there that I could find. This printer was fine two days ago, and now it's basically a glorified paper weight.
