The out of paper erro can also be caused by worn pickup rollers. These rollers are used to pickup paper from the paper tray and feed it into the printer. When they get worn down they can't grip the paper to pick it up so the printer thinks the paper tray is empty. The pickup roller runs $3.99 and can be installed by the end user, no service center is needed. The part number is RL1-0266 and looks like this:

SOURCE: HP Laserjet 3050 No paper pickup

NOTE:
If the printer DOES NOT PICKUP paper .
That is a jam also so the places to look are smoth rollers or smoth spots on the rollers.
trays not adjusted properly and if they have it some trays have a coustom/standarsd switch (should be in standard for letter/legal paper

SOURCE: hp 5550 laserjet paper jam

Thhis error is usually due to a dirty photcell (sensor) in the tray 2 paper feed assembly or a broken sensor flag in the same assembly. Start be removing all cartridges and the transfer belt. Look in the bottom of the printer below the lowest cartridge slot for a removeable cover. That's the area your problem is probably in. I have incuded a link to a free PDF of complete service manual below. Good luck.

SOURCE: My HP LaserJet 3050 will not grab and feed paper

Open the top as if you were going to change ink cartridges. Find all rollers yuou can and wipe them with a t-shirt type material dry. Do not use any liquids unless you can get some rubbing alcohol. Turn the wheels and claen them as best as is posible. Open the paper jam door and do the same to all rollers in site. Any way you can get to the rollers, use it. This should solve your problem. Also try fanning your paper before loading it. Thanks, Dana

SOURCE: default paper tray selection for HP LaserJet 4200tn

1) When the printer receives a print job, it selects the tray by trying to match the requested paper type and size with what has been loaded in the trays. Using an “autoselect” process, it searches all available trays for the paper that satisfies the request, starting with the bottom tray and ending with the top tray (tray 1). The printer begins printing the job as soon as it finds the proper type/size.

2) If paper is loaded in tray 1 and tray 1 is set "TRAY 1 TYPE=ANY" and "TRAY 1 SIZE=ANY" on the
Paper Handling menu, the printer will always pull paper from tray 1 first.

Check the media settings for your paper trays. Make sure they are set properly, also check the diver media settings. Is the problem happening with a specific print job? If it is check the page setup for that document.

My HP Laserject 5100 Printer has the Paper Jam Problem. After that, I check printer. But i haven't seen any paper jam. When i print out, nothing show on paper and show the paper jam.. How to fix?


Hi,

This error message is displayed by the printer when paper is jammed in one or more locations. In such a case, users are recommended to remove the jammed paper from the specified location. The entire paper path must be checked for any pieces of paper. To stop the message, open and close the top most cover of the printer. Lastly, verify the flags and the sensors. If the problem persists, the cause of the error message could be a broken sensor or sensor lever.

Unable to print on network it is showing offline or load letter. How to resolve?


I can help you with your HP Laserjet 4 printer problem.

Ensure the paper is loading correctly from the paper tray by reloading paper and printing locally.

If the printer prints locally, then paper loading is not the problem. Select your printer from the Control Panel > Printers list, right click and choose Sharing to re-setup printer sharing.

I hope that helps.

Printer is loaded with paper but get message


Although you really haven't given me enough information, I will posit and response for you.

A "Load Paper Error can be caused by the application telling you to change the "TYPE or SIZE" of paper that is in your paper tray.

For example, The application thinks you want the page printed on "Letterhead" paper, but it know that you have plain bond paper installed.

So you are sent a change paper type message.

The fix is to hit go and skip around that error.

The actual fix is to make sure that your printer driver, application and the printer are all set to the same size paper and type paper.
