Paper Jam in Scanner (hp laserjet c6180)


I have a jam in my hp laserjet c6180 scanner section.

I put a small paper (1/3 of A4 page) there and it's jammed and there is no way I can get it out. It can't be even seen from outside.

I understand how to remove a jam form printing section, but is there any way I can do it with scanning section (how to open it)?

Hello itgirl87,


There is a way to open up the auto document feeder to clear out the paper path.  Please try this link to the instructions for clearing the path

Re: Paper Jam in Scanner (hp laserjet c6180)

Thank you for this info.  I, too, had scanned a personal check - only to have it get lost in the scanning rollers somewhere.  I had no idea that the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) opened up like that.  To anyone else who has this issue, there is an ADF lid - and it does not open smoothly.  You have to really give it a good pull and voila - it opens (and there was my check).  Thanks again.
