HP LASERJET M2727 PAPER JAM

HP LaserJet M2727 MFP Series Product – Clear jams

 

Causes of jams

Occasionally, paper or other print media can become jammed during a print job. Some causes include the following events:

  • The input trays are loaded improperly or overfilled, or the media guides are not set properly.

  • Media is added to or removed from an input tray during a print job or an input tray is removed from the product during a print job.

  • The cartridge door is opened during a print job.

  • Too many sheets have accumulated in an output area, or sheets are blocking an output area.

  • The print media that is being used does not meet HP specifications. See Paper and print media.

  • The media is damaged or has foreign objects attached to it, such as staples or paper clips.

  • The environment in which the print media was stored is too humid or too dry. See Paper and print media.

Where to look for jams

Jams can occur in these locations:

  • In the automatic document feeder (ADF)

  • In input areas

  • In the automatic duplexer

  • In output areas

  • Inside the product

Find and remove the jam by using the instructions on the following pages. If the location of the jam is not obvious, first look inside the product.

Loose toner might remain in the product after a jam. This problem typically resolves itself after a few sheets have been printed.

Clear jams from the ADF

Occasionally, media becomes jammed during a fax, copy, or scan job.

You are notified of a media jam by the Doc feeder jam Clear, Reload message that appears on the product control-panel display.

  • The ADF input tray is loaded incorrectly or is too full. See Load paper and print media for more information.

  • The media does not meet HP specifications, such as those for size or type. See Paper and print media for more information.

Avoid repeated jams

  • Verify that the input tray is not overfilled. The input tray capacity varies depending on the type of print media that you are using.

  • Verify that the media guides are properly adjusted.

  • Check that the input tray is securely in place.

  • Do not add print media into the input tray while the product is printing.

  • Use only HP-recommended media types and sizes. See Paper and print media for more information about print media types.

  • Do not fan media prior to loading it in a tray. To loosen the ream, hold it firmly in both hands and twist the media by rotating your hands in the opposite direction.

  • Do not let print media stack up in the output bin. The print media type and the amount of toner used affect the output bin capacity.

  • Check the power connection. Make sure that the power cord is firmly connected to both the product and the power supply box. Plug the power cord into a grounded power outlet.
