HP Deskjet, Photosmart, and PSC Printers and All-in-Ones - 'Out of Paper' Error Message and the Printer Does Not Pick Up or Feed Paper

Content starts here

Issue
An Out of paper error message appears on the computer, and the product does not pick up or feed paper from the paper tray.
Solution
Complete the following steps in the order provided.
Step one: Reset the product

1.
Without turning the product off, remove the power cord from the back of the product.
2.
Wait 30 seconds and then plug the power cord into the back of the product.
3.
If the product is not already on, use the On button to turn it on.

Step two: Check the condition of the paper and reload it

1.
Replace any paper that is ripped, dusty, curled, wrinkled, or bent.
NOTE: Use only plain, white, unused paper in the product until the issue is resolved.
2.
Make sure that all the paper is the same size and type. Because only one type of paper can be used in the product at a time, paper types should never be mixed.
3.
Tap the stack of paper on a flat surface to align the edges.
4.
Make sure that the stack of paper to be loaded in the product is no smaller than 10 and no larger than 25 sheets of paper.
NOTE: Do not load too much paper in the product.
5.
Insert the stack of paper into the product and gently push the paper guides snugly against the paper. Make sure that the paper is completely inserted into the product and can be picked up by the paper rollers.
6.
Try printing again. If the issue is not resolved, try loading different brands of paper and different types of paper, one type at a time, into the product and then try printing again.
If the issue persists, continue with the next step.

Step three: Adjust the paper settings in the print driver
The paper settings in the print driver must match the paper settings for at least one of the installed paper trays.

1.
Open a document in the program being used to print.
2.
Click File , click Print , and then click Properties . The product Properties dialog box appears.
3.
Click the Paper/Quality tab.
4.
Choose the appropriate paper size from the Size is drop-down menu.
5.
Choose the appropriate paper type from the Type is drop-down menu.
6.
Click OK and then click OK again to print the document..
7.
If the issue is not resolved, continue with the next section.

NOTE: If the issue is resolved and it is necessary to print on another type of paper, load the new paper type into the product and then repeat steps 2 through 7 for the new paper.These changes do not change the default print settings. The print settings return to the default the next time the program is opened.
Step four: If necessary, obtain the HP Paper Feed Cleaning Kit
Locate the serial number on the product.

*
If the third and fourth digits of the serial number are 56, 57, 58, 59, 5A, 5B, 5C, or 61 , then use one of the Contact HP links on this page to contact a support representative. If the product is still under warranty, the support representative will send a free HP Paper Feed Cleaning Kit (part number c9000-67901).
If the product is no longer under warranty, this kit can be purchased from HP online. Click here for region/country ordering information.
Figure 1: Serial number with third and fourth digit circled
* If the third and fourth digits of the serial number are not listed, the special cleaning kit is not necessary. Continue with the next step.

NOTE: The HP Paper Feed Cleaning Kit requires the product to be connected to a computer running Windows 2000 or XP with a USB connection. If the product is not already connected with a USB cable, connect it before using the HP Paper Feed Cleaning Kit.
Step five: Clean the rollers

1.
Turn off the product and unplug the power cord.
2.
Open the access door to gain access to the rollers. Depending on the model, this is usually the rear access door. See the product user guide for information about locating the rollers.
3.
Clean the rubber rollers with a lint-free cloth, lightly moistened with water.
NOTE: Distilled, filtered, or bottled water is recommended for cleaning the rollers. Tap water might contain contaminants that can damage the rollers.
4.
Make sure that any paper rollers that rest on the input tray, which are located behind the back rollers, are cleaned. A clean cotton swab, lightly moistened with water, might be necessary to reach these rollers.
5.
Close the access door and plug in the power cord.
6.
Try printing again. If the issue is not resolved, continue to the next step.

Step six: Service the product
If you have completed all the steps listed above and are still experiencing a problem, service the product.
Cause
Any of the following issues can cause the error message to appear:

*
The paper trays are empty or overloaded.
*
The paper is curled.
*
The print side, or shiny side, of the paper is not loaded in the input tray face down.
*
The paper might not be engaged with the feed rollers.
*
The paper-width guide is pressed against the paper stack too tightly.
*
The paper tray is not completely inserted into the product.
*
The paper settings in the print driver do not match the paper loaded in the paper tray.
*
The rubber paper-feed rollers are coated with dust.

SOURCE: error problems wi Dell 626 all in one printer

Try these steps if this did not resolve try to clear the memory of the printer
and try to print ..

# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.

1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.

# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.

We just changed the drum and cartridge on our HP9500. The prints now have about a 2" strip of black toner along the edge. What should we do? It now says replace cleaning cartridge, could that be our...


Never heard of a "cleaning cartridge". Couldn't find one in the service manual.
There is a cleaning kit(C8554A).
The cleaning blade might not be latched, that will cause the problem you describe.
Remove the 'waste toner bottle'. Push the blue handle down. Pull out the transfer cleaner(cleaning blade) and reseat it. It is included in the cleaning kit.

Good luck.

Hi

You can check the small contacts on the carts, that they are clean and contacting the sensors on the carriage in the printer when you snap them in. Also, double-check your printer cable, that it hasn't jiggled loose where it connects to the printer or the other end, on the computer.Make sure that you have removed the tap from the head of ink cartridge. Then take out the cartridges and after some time ,snap it back.Then align the cartridge and then run the cleaning cycle.You can also Try to disconnect the power and computer for 10 minutes, then reconnect just the power and turn on.

Also try to upgrade the latest driver of this printer and see if it works

Printing yellow instead of red or orange


Hi Friend,

Firstly clean the head of cartridge & printer.if you have cleaned the head, that's the best way to get the color out.... did you also clean the head on the cartridge holder where you insert the cartridges?
If you useing Refill kits (cartrige) please replace it with a NEW one printer cartridge becouse refill cartridge is not every time good.

Thanks,

Right cartridge incorrect


If it says to check the right cartridge (Black), replace it with a brand new one or one you know is good.

Walgreens will test and refill your cartridge for ~$10.00 (black).

I have heard of new OEM HP cartridges being bad.

The printer checks the cartridge level sensor and the electrical stuff.
