printer has jam & feed issues

HP Recommended
HP Office Jet Pro 6978
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

We have had HP Office Jet Pro 6978 for just under or over a year. It was a Xmas gift 2019. It persistently jams, we clear it, it jams again, won't print, prints partial page, seems to have feed issues as well. Help please?

Welcome to the HP support community.

 

Clean the paper tray rollers

  1. Carefully lift the printer and set it on its side.

  2. While supporting the printer with one hand, pull the paper tray open to expose the paper rollers underneath the printer.

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

  4. Press the cloth against the rollers inside the printer, and then rotate the rollers upwards with your fingers. Apply a moderate amount of pressure to remove any dust or dirt buildup.

  5. Allow the rollers to dry completely (approximately 10 minutes).

  6. Close the paper tray, and then set the printer upright.

Clean the paper feed rollers from inside the ink cartridge access area.
