I keep getting a paper jam error on my photosmart plus B209 a-m. I have followed all of the directions in the guided help. There is no paper jam and every time I try to print thats what message I get.
Can anyone help? I am so frustrated I am ready to scream. I just got this printer for Christmas. Geeze!!

This is incredible, I'm having the same error at THIS MOMENT and I need to print some receits for customers. I really need this printer to be working. I tried all the 7 step on the HP.com site.
But it always says Paper jam, and there is no paper.
I need help TOO!!!

I am having the exact same problem. Anyone find the solution yet? Wish I had stuck with Epson. I've had my Epson Stylus Photo since 2000 and still works great but won't hook up to new computer. : (

Totally, frustrated as well. Ghost paperjam. HP usually makes a good printer as I've had many. This one.......I'd throw it away as soon as the scanner craps out. Basically its a large scanner now. I don't need to get up and hit ok and open the back door each time I need to print a page. Really disappointing as I have not found a fix.

I have exactly the same problem! Also VERY frustrated!
Called HP 'Support' yesterday and was told (LITERALLY): "Throw the printer away." !!!!
The machine is just slightly out of warranty and, since HP, in their infinite wisdom, has decided NOT to locate a Service/Repair Center anywhere in all of Australia, they are unable to service or repair this printer.
Aside from the cost associated with buying a new printer, I find this VERY ENVIRONMENTALLY UNFRIENDLY!! To be trashing such a piece of hardware for a simple problem like this, is not a very smart way to be doing things, in my book.
I am convinced that anyone who knows how to open this machine up could fix this problem in 30 minutes, but I can't figure out for the life of me how to get into the machine.
After having had a very close look into the guts of the machine, I can actually see where the carriage is hanging up, but am unable to disassemble or open the machine up to un-jam it.
DOES ANYONE OUT THERE KNOW HOW TO DISASSEMBLE AN HP-B209A (All-In-One) PRINTER??
VERY, VERY POOR SHOW HP!!!!!
