The Attention Light Blinks (Paper Jam) for HP LaserJet Pro CP1025 and CP1025nw Color Printers

Issue

The Attention light () on the control panel blinks. The Ready light might also blink. Paper is jammed in the product.
Paper jams can occur in multiple locations in the product.
    Figure : Jam locations
    Illustration: Paper jam locations on the product.
  1. Output tray
  2. Rear door
  3. Input tray
  IMPORTANT: You must follow these solutions in the order presented to resolve the issue.

Solution one: Clear the jam, reload paper, and then print a self-test report

note:
Loose toner might remain in the product after a jam. This problem typically resolves itself after the product prints a few sheets.
  caution:
Paper jams might result in loose toner on the page. If you get any toner on your clothes, wash them in cold water. Hot water permanently sets the toner into the fabric.
Do not use sharp objects, such as tweezers or needle-nose pliers, to remove jams. Damage caused by sharp objects is not covered by the warranty.
When you remove jammed paper, pull it straight out of the product. Pulling jammed paper out at an angle can damage the product.

Step one: Remove any loose paper first

Remove all loose paper from the input tray and the output tray.
  caution:
Do not try to remove jammed paper at this stage.

Step two: Clear the jam from the output tray

Follow these steps to clear the paper jam.
  1. With both hands, grasp the jammed paper where it is most visible, including the middle, and then carefully pull the paper straight out of the output tray.

Step three: Clear the jam from the back of the product

  1. Turn the product around, and then open the rear door.

    Figure : Load plain white paper
    Image: Load plain white paper.
    note:
    Do not overload the tray. Make sure that the stack of paper fits within the tray and is no higher than the top of the guides.
  3. Slide the paper length and width guides inward until they stop at the edges of the paper.
    Figure : Slide paper guides inward

Step seven: Print a self-test report

Printing a self-test report verifies if the hardware functions correctly.
  1. Make sure that the product is idle and the Ready light () is on.
  2. Press and hold the Resume button () for two to three seconds, and then release the button. The product prints a self-test report and a supplies status page.
  • If these steps resolved the issue, you do not need to continue troubleshooting.
  • If the issue persists, continue to the next solution.

Solution two: Check for any torn paper, debris, or foreign objects in the cartridge area

Check for and remove any torn pieces of paper, debris, or foreign objects that are accessible from the print cartridge area.
You need a flashlight to complete some of these steps.

  8. Grasp the print cartridge by the center handle, and then insert the print cartridge into the correct slot. Make sure the color label on the print cartridge matches the color label in the carousel slot.
