Paper jams in HP Photosmart 5520 e-all-in-one

Why do I keep getting paper jams in HP Photosmart 5520 e-all-in-one? It won't even take in the paper without jamming.

Thank you but this didn't help. I have already done all these steps. The printer won'tfeed the paper more than the initial feed.When it begins to try and print the paper no longer moves.

I assume you have opened all the doors, pulled out the paper tray and looked around in there with a flashlight?

Is it still under warranty?

Yes, I did look with a flashlight and yes it is under warranty. It is very new.

I'd suggest you contact HP about this.  This is how to contact HP support: www.hp.com/go/totalcare (click on Printers & Monitors, there is a phone number on the resulting page).

I have a paper jam and no where in the wonderful manual that came with the printer does it say anything about a paper jam. CAN YOU TELL ME HOW TO GET IT OUT. By the way I am na IT person.  Never seen anything like this.

Paper jams in HP Photosmart 5520 e-all-in-one

@ Petee - There is a document that shows the steps on how to clear out a paper jam in the Photosmart 5520. There are a few doors that allow one to access the rollers in the printer and the document shows these steps.

PrintDoc linked the document in Message 2 of this thread, but I will link it again below to ensure it is easily found.

I am having the same problem. I have tried all these things and it jams every time I try to print. I don't think it still under warranty. Suggestions? Thx
