    I keep getting the message :paper out" and printer will not print. Paper tray is loaded with proper paper. I can make a copy, and paper feeds in correctly, and I made a test copy, which was perfect, but cannot make a copy of what's on my computer.

    The "paper out" warning light is flashing, but the printer is loaded correctly with paper. I have turned the printer on and off several times, reloaded the paper, rebooted the computer, etc. but the problem remains. Hence, I cannot print.

    If there is a possiblility that there is a small piece of paper jammed inside the printer somewhere, how can I open the printer up to check on that?

I have a HP 3210 which worked fine for 6 months then started the out of paper message. I could not get one sheet through it. I tried the HP solutions with no fix. I took it in to a shop and they said it would cost more to fix it than get a new one. I read on a forum that one person said the advance rollers had a slick surface and was not advancing the paper forward. He said he ran 1000 sheets through his printer which roughed up the rollers and he has not had any issues. I decided to try 400 grit silicon (wet dry) sand paper in the tray with the rough side up. I put one in the tray and pulled the back cover and held on to the sand paper for 30 times. Around the 25th time I noticed it was starting to pull harder. That was the trick. I ran 75 blank sheets right after that with out one error.

Try using a higher grade/quality of paper. Sounds simple but i experienced the same problem with my HP J6480, and using a better grade of paper cured the problem.

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.

Won't print

The printer is giving that message as the print job sent to the printer is asking for the correct paper type. Check the program you used and its print setup in that program to make sure the correct paper is selected. Software overrides hardware settings on a printer.Another thing is double check the tray position tab and make sure it is set to letter and locked in that position. If the paper tray is not set it can also think that the paper in the tray is a different paper size.

Printer won't print

I know that the paper lever is where your paper is loaded. Check the grey plastic tab and try to drag it to the right or left. Depending on your paper size you might have to check the owners manual.
