Question about HP - HP Photosmart 8250 printer
After fighting with my 8250 for quit some time with cleaning the drive rollers, sandpapering rollers, putting sticky hairspray on rollers to grip paper and so on I decided to go radical. I cut a hole in the bottom with a Dremel and placed double sided tape on the rollers to grip the paper. Presto ! Now it works, I wouldn't recommend this to the faint of heart but I was about to throw a multi-hundred dollar in the trash while lit on fire. I was determined to make it work as I was on a quest for a solution. You probably can do this trick going throught the back of the printer but it will be tight. Shame on you HP for not testing your product, I doubt I have 50 sheets of paper run through this before it failed to perform.

Unplug the printer from the power and from the computer..
open the back door of the printer and check if both the rollers (inside the printer & on the door) are rolling (upwards)..if not then press & Hold the Power button for 60 seconds when unplugged from the power..
If the rollers still dont move..then u need to service the printer..
if rollers moves..then connect the power cable to the printer and directly to a wall jack (not to a power strip)..
power on the printer and load paper in the main tray..(ensure photo button is not lit up)..
photo button should be lit up in case u want to print photo and the paper is placed in the small phto tray which is exactly above the main tray...
place the paper to the xtreme right in the tray and slide the paper guide from left to right..
then try printing ..
