Well sometimes if there is a pickup problem if this is a inkjet hp printer it will simply think that the paper tray is empty, and the pickup roller could be dirty.

if this printer is a laser printer then the sensor flags that sense the paper is malfunctioning and needs either to be replaced or cleaned it could be stuck, on some laser printers there is a set of microswitches that can get stuck too, this is if the printer is a mid range laser printer.

It seems that your paper size is small then the tray size.
Do this
Open the tray of the printer and check the vertical and horizontal sides of the paper. Tray movable side should touching paper.

I hope this will solve your problem.

If you have still problem then reply to this solution if it fix your problem then mark as answer.

Regards

I have a 5650 lexmark printer and it keeps saying paper jams but there is not paper anywhere.. how can i find a solution... when you load paper it keepps getting stuck.. help


There could be something blocking the paper path. Try to shake the printer upside down. You'll be amazed of the things that falls off inside the printer. Also, make sure that there's no paper left inside the printer. Tiny pieces of paper will still lead to paper jams.

Paper is inserted properly but error message keeps saying "Load paper face down in Main tray"


i think the printer has 2 trays, one down and the other one on top from where you insert the paper. load the paper there as well. if there is only one tray then check the paper sensor in the bottom, if the paper end sensor comes out of position then it will not detect the paper.

Canon pixma 3100 keeps saying load paper and won't print


If you have paper in the loading tray and it keeps giving you out of paper message then the sensor by the loading hopper is not working and would need to be replaced.

9 times out of ten though you might want to clean the printer and make sure the hopper is not just jammed this happens when you put too much paper in there at one given time.


thanks

It's telling you to turn over the paper so that the shiny side is down. The back side with the stripes and logo should face up.
