When I try to print, it will not grab the paper. Instead it says there is no paper in the tray. Sometimes, if I take a single sheet and feed it manually as it is trying to print, it will grab it and print. I have looked inside and don't see anything blocking it and it seems to print just fine, it just won't actually grab the paper unless I push it down in there manually.

Re: Dell 922 All-in one ink jet printer paper feed
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
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this
way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps.Bud

Hi, the Ip3000 has 3 different feeding trays... make sure that the printer is trying to "grab" the paper in the tray that you have chosen to use in the printer properties box... when you give the print command can you see the rubber roller moving to grab the paper in the top feeder tray??? if the roller that feeds the printer is not moving you may have accidentally changed the settings to grab paper from the bottom tray...the one right under the door that opens to let printed pages out of the printer... the 3rd feeder tray is the DVD/CD printing tray... I suggest that you look at the printer Properties for remedial action... hope this helps you with your problem... cheers haitchhcee p.s. suggest you place paper in the bottom tray before making adjustments to see if it is trying to grab the paper from there...
The paper feed roller is commonly either dirty or has a sliver of paper inside. To clean it you should use denatured Alcohol with a lint free cloth. You have to remove all paper and the paper tray and may need to flip the machine to get access.
If your device is out of warranty, I'd suggest to clean the rollers again completely. What I mean is to remove the scanner lid and back cover, then clean all of the rubber rollers gently with alcohol and swabs.
Do a reset: Dell Printer reset 1.With the power on,unplug the power cord from the wall socket. 2.Disconnect the power supply from the back of the printer. 3.Wait 15 seconds. 4.Reconnect the power supply to the back of the printer. Plug the power cord back into the wall socket.
Dell Printers To run a nozzle clean, perform the following steps: 1.Verify the All-In-One Printer 922 is powered on and connected to a computer. 2.Verify that the paper support (input tray) has clean, plain white paper loaded. 3.Press the Menu button. 4.Press the Down button until Mode: Maintenance appears on the LCD screen. 5.Press the Menu button. The Dell 922 Maintenance Menu appears on the LCD screen. 6.Press the Down button until Clean Cartridges appears on the LCD screen. 7.Press the Start button. The AIO 922 prints the cleaning page. This process cleans the ink cartridges and resolves many print quality issues.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe
The printer does not feed paper from the tray and then states that there is a paper jam. I have removed all paper and there isn't a paper jam. It will feed paper through the lower roller and straight into the printed paper tray, but will not feed a new sheet.
