The first page of my print job always jams and gives an error code E4. If I clear the jam the printer resets and works fine. This should not happen?

Welcome to the HP support community.

 

I understand that you are getting an E4 error, I am glad to assist you.

Manually clean the paper rollers inside the input tray area

Dust, paper fiber, and other debris might accumulate on the paper feed rollers and cause paper jams and paper feed issues.

  1. Turn off the printer.

  2. Disconnect the USB cable from the printer, if it is connected.

  3. Disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer.

       WARNING: 

    You must disconnect the power cord before reaching inside the printer to avoid risk of injuries or electric shock.

  4. Raise the input tray.

    Pull up the input tray

  5. Lift and hold the input tray shield.

       CAUTION: 

    Do not remove the input tray shield. The input tray shield prevents foreign debris from falling into the paper path and causing paper jams.

  6. Look through the open input tray, and then find the gray paper pick rollers.

  7. Dampen a long cotton swab with distilled water, and then squeeze out any excess water.

  8. Press the swab against the rollers, and then rotate them upward with your fingers. Apply a moderate amount of pressure to remove dust or dirt buildup.

  9. Lower the input tray shield.

  10. Allow the rollers to dry for 10 minutes.

  11. Reconnect the power cord to the rear of the printer.

  12. Reconnect the USB cable to the printer, if necessary.

  13. Turn on the printer.

Reset the printer

Sometimes a paper jam error persists even though there is no jammed paper (false paper jam). Reset the printer, which might clear a false paper jam error.

  1. With the printer turned on, disconnect the power cord from the printer.

  2. Unplug the power cord from the power source.

  3. Wait 60 seconds.

  4. Reconnect the power cord to a wall outlet and to the printer.

  5. NOTE: HP recommends plugging the printer directly into a wall outlet.

  6. Try to print. If the error persists, continue to the next step.
