I just had this issue and called HP. Even though the printer was out of warranty, I was able to go through some troubleshooting steps over the phone. IF you open and close the top cover 5x, it will print out a self test page. That is the only self test page that prints. Afterwards the computer will detect the printer and it will print just fine.

Tip

How to troubleshoot paper jam problem in printers?


Most common reason are as follows:-- Among the most common problems with any make of printer are paper jams. A printer will jam for any number of reasons: It’s dirty, the wrong paper type is being used, or the rollers on the printer that feed the paper through its pathway are worn down. While cleaning the printer periodically and using the correct paper type are easy fixes, roller replacement can be a difficult job depending on the model of HP printer. For some HP printers, the rollers are easily accessible, but you'll need to completely tear down other models to remove the rollers. Regardless of the cause, when removing a paper jam, always pull the paper in the direction of the paper path, because pulling it backwards can severely damage the printer.

Certain HP printers are more susceptible to paper jams than others. In my experience, any printer that holds the paper vertically and then pulls it down through the printer invariably ends up having paper jam problems. These models aren't designed for heavy use, but many organizations make use of them on individual systems and should be aware of this flaw. In addition, some people have trouble with the newer HP 4000 series printers' paper pickup rollers—which is odd, because the older 4000 and 5000 series HP printers are considered rock solid and don't seem to have any trouble with their pickup rollers.
This will help.good luck.

Always paper jam.


Check to see if something isn't blocking the paper path.

You could try cleaning the feed rollers as well.
