Paper jam

HP Recommended
HP LaserJet Pro M14-M17
macOS 10.15 Catalina

I recently bought a HP LaserJet Pro M14-M17 printer. All went well until I bumped the paper mid-printing. It stopped, displaying "paper jam". The paper wasn't torn or wrinkled, but was half in and half out of the printer, and I couldn't remove it. It was held tight. The machine wouldn't resume printing, no matter what I tried. Finally, following the instructions for "paper jam", I forcefully pulled the paper out. Is there any easier way to remove an undamaged  sheet of paper stuck in the printer? Cheers, Nanna-6.

Welcome to the HP support community.

 

Clear jams from inside the product

  1. Open the print-cartridge door, and then remove the print cartridge.

       CAUTION: 

    To prevent damage, do not expose the print cartridge to light. Cover it with a piece of paper.

  2. If you can see the jammed paper, carefully grasp the jammed paper, and slowly pull it out of the product.

  3. Reinstall the print cartridge, and then close the print-cartridge door.

Thankyou, Sandytechy20. I did find those instructions when my sheet of paper was stuck half in and half out of the printer, and I followed the directions as I understood them. I ended up dragging the paper forcefully out of the sheet exit at the top. It didn't tear, but I was afraid the force I used might damage the feed mechanism. Did I do the right thing?

Regards, Nanna-6.
