HP Color Inkjet cp1700 Series Printer - How to Clear a Paper Jam

Tips and tricks
To clear a paper jam, first check the paper input paths. If the jammed paper is visible from one of the input trays or the front manual feed, carefully pull the jammed paper straight up and out of the printer. Select new paper and reload the printer with it.
  note:
Ensure that the paper is aligned to the right side of the tray. In addition, verify that the guides are adjusted tightly against the stack of paper and they do not wrinkle or bend the paper.
To clear a paper jam by opening the top cover of the printer
  1. Remove all paper from the output tray.
  2. Open the top cover. The carriage should return to its position on the right of the printer.
  3. If the carriage does not return to the right of the printer, turn off the printer before you remove the jammed paper.
  4. Remove any wrinkled paper by pulling the paper through the top of the printer.
After clearing the jam
  1. Close all covers of the printer.
  2. Press the RESUME button to continue the print job.
      note:
    The print job continues from the next page. Reprint the pages that were jammed in the printer.
