Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Check the paper sensor has not come loose. Lift the lid, it is on the right hand side of the rollers with the red and blue wire. Press down lightly to make sure is hasn't come loose.

If not, reset the printer:
While the printer is on, press and hold the configuratuion button and press resume (paper feed) button 3 times.
Wait 20 second and press the power button.
Disconnect the power and wait 20 seconds.
Connect the power and switch the printer on.

Here are the specs for paper for that printer. It's not listed on the HP website the same as you've listed it.

Here's a video about how to solve jams on that printer. If the paper doesn't meet specs, the video won't help.

Paper jam in HP 1200 printer


Hi,Make sure you got every single piece in there, and if you can't get it to work, just hard reset it. Unplug it from the wall wait 5 seconds, plug it back in. Should be good as new.


The LaserJet 1200 has two paper inputs, a regular paper tray and a priority input tray that is used for envelopes, labels and transparencies.
Paper jams rarely happen with the HP LaserJet 1200. If you can see paper sticking out of the input or output tray, try to remove it gently. If you encounter resistance or if the page tears, turn off the lights in the room to avoid exposing the toner to light. Open the toner door, which is above the paper tray, and the output door, and rotate the green levers down. At this point, you might be able to remove the jammed paper. If not, remove the toner cartridge.
Grasp the page in both hands and gently pull it free. Replace the toner cartridge and close the doors. The cartridge and the levers will slide back into place.

Hope that helps..

My HP laser printer 1300 had a paper jam


When printing or copying, paper will not pick up or feed into the HP LaserJet 1000, 1200 or 1300 series product causing paper jams or wrinkled output. Symptoms are as follows:
  • The pickup roller will spin and try to pick paper.
  • The paper will partially feed into the product accompanied by a crackling, crunching noise then jamming.
  • The paper may feed all the way through the paper path accompanied by a crackling, crunching noise. The output will be skewed and wrinkled.
SOLUTION: Reposition the black Mylar light shields back into the proper position.
  1. Unplug the power cord from the product.
  2. Remove the paper and paper input tray.
  3. Slide hands, palms side up, into the paper input tray cavity (see Figure 1) until the fingertips reach the end of the cavity. Figure 1: Paper input tray cavityc00068598.jpg
  4. Bend fingers up to push the black Mylar light shields back into place. The proper position of the black Mylar light shield will be flat.
  5. Reconnect the power cord.
  6. Print a self-test/configuration page to verify product is functioning correctly.

Paper keeps ripping on the side on normal one sided printing. Duoble sided printing paper just rips up and jams.


sounds like some tron parper was stuck inside and has contributed to more paper tearing. First check for any paper jams, and check inside for and broken or damages items, causing paper to tear.

Says Paper Jam But No Paper In It


Hi

Paper jams can be real or false. The unit may report a paper jam when there is not any jammed paper, however, the solution to a real paper jam or a false paper jam is the same. WARNING: Jammed paper must be removed using the rear access door and the power cord must be disconnected or a carriage jam or mechanical damage may occur. Do not remove jammed paper from the front of the unit.
  1. Turn off the HP product and turn it so the back of the unit faces you.
  2. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the all-in-one. The power cord must be disconnected to allow the paper feed rollers to turn freely.
  3. Locate and open the rear access door by pressing in on the left side tab and then pulling the door toward you. Figure 1: Removing the rear access door bd842f6.jpg
  4. Inspect the pressure rollers on the rear access door and verify that they are clean and turn freely. Clean the rollers if needed with a soft towel lightly moistened with water. If the rollers do not turn freely, replace the rear access door.
  5. Inspect the pressure rollers on the rear access door and verify that they are clean and turn freely. Clean the rollers if needed with a soft towel lightly moistened with water. If the rollers do not turn freely, replace the rear access door. Click How to buy on this page to order replacement parts.
  6. From the rear access door opening, remove the jammed paper.
  7. Remove the remaining paper from the paper supply tray. Discard any paper that is damaged or crumpled and then re-stack and reload the paper into the paper supply tray.
  8. Reinstall the rear access door.
  9. Reconnect the power cord to the unit and turn the unit on. If a carriage stall occurs after clearing the paper jam, resolve the carriage stall.
Preventing paper jams The following information will help prevent paper jams from occurring:
  • When loading paper in to the paper tray, push it in until it meets first resistance. Do not continue pushing the paper in. If the paper is pushed too far in, more than one page is picked and paper jams result. This is the most common cause of paper jams with the HP Officejet 410 series.
  • Never use paper that is wrinkled or damaged in any way.
  • If you are having problems using paper that has already been printed on once, replace it with fresh paper.
  • Remove and then reinstall the rear access door. Verify that the access door is fully locked in place. The paper can skew if the rear access door isn't locked.
  • Every six months - one year, clean the paper feed rollers with a rag slightly dampened with clean water. Over time the paper feed rollers accumulate dust and do not function as well as they once did.
  • When printing envelopes, tuck the flap into the envelope and crease the folds before printing.
Please do rate the solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks
