Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

HP P3015N tray two paper pickup issue

The paper doesn't want to feed when I print.


I have a HP3210 and it would not feed photo paper (HP brand) and I put a small amount of the fingertip moistener (the same type of stuff a bank teller uses to count bills) on the two feed rollers that are seen from the back of the printer and it seems to have solved the problem. The product used is SortKwik, and it was purchased at Office Depot. HP service reps were of no help and did not seem to care..their only solution was to buy a new printer!

It seems that the rollers won't advance the paper. The error message of course tells me that it is out of paper. I haven't used it in over one year, could that have something to do with the problem?


Things to try are listed in this support document from HP: (recommend cleaning the rollers #4)

HP Photosmart C6280 Out of Paper

Lack of use could be a factor as it pertains to dust buildup on the working parts of the feed, especially the rollers.

Paper feed is feeding too many pages at once


First make sure you are using the right weight paper. On the package it will tell you what weight it is...ie: 20lb, if the paper is the acceptable weight for your particular printer then it is probably the pickup rollers. Depending on the price of your printer (if it is an inexpensive one) you may want to consider just replacing it, due to the difficulty of replacing rollers on many printers if they are even replaceable.

Printer will not grab paper


Check to make sure the paper sensor tab moves freely. You might try air dusting around the paper pick-up rollers to make sure the area is free from any accumulation of dust, dirt, or paper residue.

Error Message Out of paper


Contact hp. They have a small item (roller clelaner) that you insert it into the printer as if it were paper and it seems to clean up your rollers. It takes about 15 minutes and it works. I also had the same problem and this solved the issue.
