Welcome to the HP support community.

 

I understand that you are getting a paper jam error, I am glad to assist you.

Clean the rollers inside the rear of the printer.

  1. Turn off the printer, and then disconnect the power cord and any other cables.

  2. Turn the printer so that the rear access door faces you.

  3. Press the two tabs inward to open the rear access door, and then remove any jammed paper.

  4. Press the two buttons on the paper path cover, and then pull the cover out of the printer.

  5. Lightly dampen a clean, lint-free cloth with bottled or distilled water, and then squeeze any excess liquid from the cloth.

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

  10. Close the rear access door.

  11. Reconnect the power cord and any other cables to the rear of the printer, and then turn on the printer.
