Usually the pick up rollers slip causing no feed and the printer then expects it. Popping up a jam , you need to clean the pick / feed rollers which are inside where the front edge of the paper goes. The 2 on the right are the most important, use a damp cloth and rub the wheel horizontally
The carrier shaft is probably dry. Use sewing machine oil or 3 in 1 oil and put a couple drops on either side of the carrier, move is back and forth a couple times then power on. While in there, clean the pick roller with a damp cloth and rub the rollers horizontally
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.
Clean the rubber rollers with a lint-free cloth, lightly moistened with water.
Distilled, filtered, or bottled water is recommended for cleaning the rollers. Tap water might contain contaminants that can damage the rollers.
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.
Close the access door and plug in the power cord.
Try printing again. If the issue is not resolved, continue to the next step.
The problem is most likely with the sensor in the paper tray. I would use a can of air and clean out the machine and use a slightly damp rag for the rollers. I would also install the latest driver as well. Another trick I have used is to unplug the power source for 5 seconds and plug it back it in to reset the printer. HP printers are great, but can be very fussy sometimes. Hope this helps!

Remove the back panel or the duplexer if you have one attached (no tools required). Then locate the pinch wheel which is on the left hand side, about 4-5 cm in and from the left (looking from the back). With a cotton bud reach in and wipe the roller. push your little finger in to gently rotate the roller bit by bit so that you clean the whole roller. Only touch the side of the roller with your finger, so that you don't leave residues.
HP recommends that you use a little distilled, sterile or bottled water on the bud, but not tap water. I found that just using a dry bud worked to remove the build up of dust from the roller.
This succesfully got my PSC 1317 picking up paper again. I think it will apply to other printers in the PSC 1300 series.
