My HP 5440 sends paper jam messages every time I turn it on. If I push the X (CLEAR) button, paper feeds through very nicely but no printing occurs. I have cleaned, cleared, blown and brushed out the gears to no avail.
Once, I received a printed message on the laptop during a failed try at printing that the HP 5440 could not continue because my network had a metered connection. Didn't know that it was connected in that way, so I turned that to non-metered, but it should not have mattered as I was using my USB cable to print a doc.
Haven't had any problems with this printer since I got it...until now.
Just bought several remanufactured ink cartridges. but the set I am using is still HP's own.
Regardless, Section Reset the printer might apply.
Likely one of two Product Numbers: C9045A / C9045B
