M180nw color laser jet .   Inconsistent paper feed issue.  One page prints, next page jams in fuser.  Remove jam &  close rear door. Blank page prints or maybe next page of document prints.  Have rebooted to no avail.  Diagnostics find no issues & test page prints ok. Paper tray is fine.

It looks like you were interacting with @praveen196, but he is out for the day & I'll be glad to help you out. 


Try the below suggestions to resolve the paper jam error 


Let's try a power reset on the printer


Reset the product

  • With the printer turned on, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer.
  • Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.
  • Wait at least 60 seconds.
  • Plug the power cord back into the wall outlet.
  • Reconnect the power cord to the printer.
  • Turn the printer on. HP recommends plugging the printer directly into a wall outlet.

 Also, try updating the printer's firmware - HP Printers - Updating or Upgrading Printer Firmware 


Also, try the steps in the document-Paper Jam Error


Let me know how this goes!

I have tried all of the suggested fixes, reboots. etc. (AT LEAST TWICE) I have the HP print & scan doctor on my PC and have utilized it’s directions to no avail.  The suggested fixes are the same as the virtual assistant and I have tried them all.


When printing after the first page the sound of the paper feed seems to change and the sound of the printer laboring a bit occurs.  I have checked for any small scraps or paper pieces and even have blown out the printer with a low volume air source.


Thanks for the response.  This unit was purchased on November 13, 2019, so it is still under the one year warranty.

I have tried these steps numerous times and continually come up against the virtual assistant.  No phone # to be found.  I asked the virtual assistant for a contact and still nothing.
