Problem feeding paper in JaserJet 1320

I have an odd problem. I have a 1320 that won't feed the paper from the tray. When I print, I hear a few soft clicks, then the warning light comes on.

I finally got my hands on another 1320, and compared them. All the mechanics look sound. The problem occurs with either paper tray, so it seems that the problem is with the printer itself.

The odd thing is that if I turn the printer on its left side (the side with the power switch), it feeds paper just fine!

If anyone can give me some pointers on where to look, I would appreciate it thoroughly.

    Thanks for your reply!

    The feed roller behaves exactly like the working printer.

Remove toner and cassette.
Turn the machine upside down .

The feed roller should not freewheel, one of the tabs could be broken off of the feed roller.

I can't get anything to print from tray 1, the manual feed. I'm trying to print envelopes and they keep printing on 8.5x11 paper from tray 2. If I put envelopes in tray 2 it won't print


Have you already tried this? After you click print and select your printer, click properites and select your paper from 8.5x11 to Envelope.

Can i disable try 1 on this printer


Usually the paper source is set to Auto in Printing Preferences so if you put paper in manual tray it will feed from manual tray and will override the tray 1 selection. If you specifically want to change it to a tray disabling tray 1 you can do so if you go into Control Panel, Printer and right click on the printer and select Printing Preferences and then on Paper menu change the paper source.

Will not feed paper. Can print with manual feed in center of printer, but will not pick up paper in tray. It tries three times and can hear the motors whirring, but then stops trying and the attention...


When you look into the tray with the flashlight, you say the top rollers are spinning, are they touching the paper?
Pull open the tray and while you look from the back with the light, close the tray and see if the paper is being lifted to meet that top roller. Take out all the paper and watch it again. Make sure that the platform that the paper sits on in the tray is free to move up. Sounds like it is jammed.
Also check that roller that isn't spinning. Try to GENTLY rotate it with your fingers. If it does rotate, replace the tray. If the paper in the tray doesn't lift, replace the tray.

Hi- The paper from the tray won't grab and run


if you remove paper tray you will see rubber feed rollers that pickup the paper, sometimes when they really dirty they wont feed the paper, you can try cleaning them with some windex or alcohol but do no try to rotate them as there is a clutch and it can break, after gently cleaning the rollers wait a few minutes to dry, and try printing again... if still having a problem it may be either the rollers are worn or some other mechanical problem.

Printer will not pick paper


As a test, please try to print something using paper in the manual feed bin.

If that works, remove the tray, take all the paper out, verify the springs on the tray are working again then reinsert the paper and tray and try again.

Thank you.

Paper comes out wrinkled in upper left hand corner. Help?


This is most likely cased by a dirty paper feed path so it will need cleaning and blowing out. Make sure that all the internal paper guides and separators are free of obstruction. Make sure that the fuser area is clean that the internal paper guides are ll in place and operate freely. Also clean it with a vacuum with a soft haired brush tool to avoid any damage. Also fan the paper before using it and do not overload the print paper tray. Also check that the pick up rollers are not work or contaminated with dirt / debris etc. Also make sure that the print tray is not overloaded and make sure that the paper is not to tightly held by the tray side guide.

    How do I "right clk explain. point icon" to open it up?


    hi  check your pickup roller under the tray. pull out the tray and see just above it if the pickup roller is not broken or warn that can be your problem most likely. the light flashing jams it is like a jam occur because no paper was picked up by the feed assembly of the printer and there is a flagto tell it if a page came through.

    Load Noises


    If the HP LaserJet series printer is experiencing a grinding or odd noise when printing or on power-up, open the printer and remove the print cartridge. Close the printer door.
    If the noise does not recur with the print cartridge removed, replace the print cartridge.
    If the noise persists, this may indicate a hardware failure. If possible, isolate and identify the location of the noise and contact a local HP sales and service ofice at the number noted in the product User's Guide . A list of phone numbers can be found at
