I have an HP printer PSC 1215 (have had it for 4 years) which worked fine till yesterday. Without any problems so far, yesterday it started not feeding the paper through the tray. I tried even 1 paper at a time but to no avail. Can you help me with this? Thanks gm

Cleaned the rollers with a slightly damp cloth towel and allowed them to dry for one hour. 2. Made sure the paper is laying flat and is not pushed too far into the printer. 3. Adjusted the arm in the paper tray so that it's snug against the paper but not squeezing or smashing it in any way. 4. Unplugged and rebooted the printer (four times) 5. Made sure the tray wasn't too full (there are about 50 sheets in it now).
You need to reintialise the printer again from the scratch. turn off your printer and disconnect from the computer. Uninstall all the drivers and application of the printer. reinstall the driver by following the instaruction. Connect the printer cabel to the computer when it prompts you to do that and then align the printer cartridge. The paper fedd will work fine
Remove the back panel or the duplexer if you have one attached (no tools required). Then locate the pinch wheel which is on the left hand side, about 4-5 cm in and from the left (looking from the back). With a cotton bud reach in and wipe the roller. push your little finger in to gently rotate the roller bit by bit so that you clean the whole roller. Only touch the side of the roller with your finger, so that you don't leave residues.
HP recommends that you use a little distilled, sterile or bottled water on the bud, but not tap water. I found that just using a dry bud worked to remove the build up of dust from the roller.
This succesfully got my PSC 1317 picking up paper again. I think it will apply to other printers in the PSC 1300 series.
