HP Laserjet 4, Paper jam error


C

I've recently got my hands on a second hand laserjet 4 printer, but it
keeps giving me paper jam errors, even when there's no paper jamming
in it, or when there's no paper at all. In the upper feeder, it simply
makes the paper shake a bit, in the lower feeder it crinkles the
edges, but fails to pick the paper up. The problem seems to be
reasonably well documented on HP's website, but unfortunately most of
the knobs, levers and sensors it refers to aren't on the printer.

The paper I'm using is A4, new, 80g/m^2

Solved. The plastic paper guide in the lower casette was bend up and
out, which was causing the paper jams from both trays. Turned the
printer upside down, found it, and had it sorted with a pair of pliers
in 15 mins.
