HP G85 / Auto feed

My G85 is no longer gripping paper(s) and pushing them through the auto feed. I am having to open the lid and insert each item that I copy/fax/scan.
Is there a fix or do I have to replace the roller?

My hp g85 will not take paper from the "top load".


I don't know about why it is not acknowledging that you have placed anything up there to be copied, but when mine would not pull paper, I cleaned the rollers with Q-Tips and water or rubbing alcohol. It would then pull the paper through. I do this when it won't pull from the lower paper tray too. Hope it helps!

When making copies, auto document feeder picks up paper and rollers squeal but paper gets stuck on underside. If you lift the lid about an inch the paper will feed through. HP Model L7780


open the top cover, on the very left there is a part that can be removed (running front to back) I believe you will see a scrap of paper iunder there. remove the paper, replace the part and try again

i am not sure how to get to the feed and seperation rollers/pads in this doc feeder. But if you can access them even a small amount you might try using alcohol solution to clean them up and or a green scott bright scartching pad to ruff the surface up a bit to give them grip and to help clean them off some. might even use a little simple green on the pad to help clean them off thena paper town to dry the rest off. this could buy you some time till you can get a new set of rollers to have put into it

Wont grip paper on feed, keeps 'saying' paperjam


I have had this problem after printing a large batch of sheets on a heavy matte photo paper. The roller picks up a 'polish' from the surface coating and then fails to grip. I have tried cleaning the roller, with some sucess, but the best solution I have found is to feed through several blank sheets (just page throws in a Word document) of a ordinary 80 gram paper. Doing this between smaller batches of the photo printing seems to keep things flowing.

Paper Jam - HP G85 Ink Jet Printer


You open the door from the back of the printer (turn the knobs) and the paper can be removed from the back. After removing paper jam, replace the door. It is a long door as wide and the printer, but about 2 1/2" wide.

Feeds to many pieces of paper into feed Officejet G85


Hey Bob,
Sounds like the pick up rollers and seperation pad could be the cause of this. They might need to be replaced

Paper tray does not feed at all or may jam several papers


The rubber wheels that feed the paper in can be too soft to grip the paper.
After a long dicussion with the help desk, HP supplied me with a special Paper Feed Cleaning Kit for the 3200 series. This comprises a scraper device that you insert into the paper feeder, and a driver CD. I had to use it three times, Now everything woerk fine.

Good luck!

Error Message Out of paper


Contact hp. They have a small item (roller clelaner) that you insert it into the printer as if it were paper and it seems to clean up your rollers. It takes about 15 minutes and it works. I also had the same problem and this solved the issue.
