HP DeskJet 1200C/PS Printer - Clearing Paper Jams

Issue:
Paper is jammed in the HP DeskJet 1200C/PS printer.
Solution
Perform the following procedure.
  1. Turn the printer off.
  2. Raise the top cover. This action will make it easier to free the jammed paper by releasing the pressure on the paper.
  3. Remove the top paper tray.
      note:
    The printer contains a paper heater which can become hot. Allow the printer to cool before attempting to remove the paper by hand or you may burn yourself.
      note:
    Do not use tools to remove paper from the printer.
  4. Remove the jammed paper from the front of the printer and replace the paper tray. If the paper can not be removed, continue with step 5.
  5. With the top cover still open, disconnect the power cord from the back of the printer and open the rear panel by pressing the two tabs on the door toward the center.
  6. Lower the rear door so that it lies down flat.
  7. Locate a green ring attached to a black plastic piece shaped like a scoop (paper plug). Grasp the paper plug by squeezing the green ring toward the thumb rest, then pull outward.
  8. Remove the jammed paper from the back of the printer.
  9. Replace the plug, and close the rear and top cover.
  10. Connect the power cord into the back of the printer and turn the printer back on.
