It can be quite frustrating when the printer does not work finely when you need it the most. Printer issues are never limited to one single problem, it can be due to many different software or hardware problems, and troubleshooting the issues and resolving them usually needs expert help. Given below are some tips to troubleshoot some common Windows 10 printer problems that you may come across.
Due to some mechanical problems, your printer may say that there is a paper jam when there is not actually any. However, real paper jams may leave behind residues that interfere with the printer operation even long after the paper jam is fixed. For instance, small amounts of shredded paper junk stuck between the gears that move the duplexer can leave your printer to think there is something stuck in the duplexer, not the gear. This is technically termed as a “ghost jam”.
Now, you can remove the paper clip and reassemble the printer parts. If you still get the paper jam notice, unplug your printer to reset the sensors.

However, this may not be the case at times; the queue could get all blocked up, making your driver to slowly stop. Given below is a quick guide to solve loaded queue printer problems in Windows.
Turn on your printer and then turn on your computer. Now try to print your document. If the error persists, get in touch with a professional printer service provider for help.
