There is a knurled roller in the back that comes down and grabs the paper. You can visually see this when the printer cycles or / and u can see it if you remove the Drum cartridge (the green handle), it is about 1 inch long and centered on a steel rod. Use some denatured alcohol or rubbing alcohol and clean this using a lint free cloth or a q tip if it will reach. This will soften it and give it some more stick ability!

Printer wont pick up paper even though the paper tray is full


There probably is a small piece of paper stuck in the paper path. Please take the ink/toner out of the machine and check the paper path. Please turn off the machine before doing this.

OfficeJet Pro 8600 will not pick up glossy photo paper from the tray


I tried everything that was suggested on the HP forum but then tried something not reccommended there and it worked. Not only remove tray 2 from the printer properties but force the print to tray 2, when you this it sets the Quality from normal or Best to Custom. Once I done that it worked... Just disabling the tray 2 is not enough.

I AM USING HP LASERJET PRINTER 2300dn and im experiencing jam, what is wrong with the tray?


I think it not the paper tray. It is the paper pick-up roller. When the rollers get dirty or worn-out, the printer fails to pick the paper, which results in paper jam. So, remove the paper tray and toner cartridge and locate the paper pick up roller in the middle. Clean it with luke-water and lint-free cloth. I hope this would fix the issue

Hope this helps! Good Luck!

Not picking up paper


Most new printers and copiers will attempt to feed paper several times before failing and giving a jam condition. It sounds like that is what is happening to your printer.

Your tray rollers may be dirty. Remove the tray and use a clean cloth with mild detergent to clean the rubber rollers. Do not use alcohol this will dry the rollers out. If problem continues replace the tray rollers.

My printer, HP injet 1410, could not pick up the paper. Can you tell me what the problem is.


I assume the printer is making noises and moving, TRYING to pick up the paper...
If so, there are 3 possible issues:

1) you have too liittle paper in the paper tray. Add more paper so that the tray is full to around 3/4, not less.

2) You may have too much paper on the tray. Remove some paper from the tray untill the tray is around 3/4 full, not more

3) The rubber rolls that pick up the paper may be dirty with paper dust or dirt. Put 2 drops of alcohol on q-tip and carefully clean them. Let dry 30 mins. before trying to use the printer.

The printer will not pick the paper from the lower tray. It tries to pick the paper from the upper tray even though it is set to auto pick the source but will not pick from the lower tray.


Hello, just clear paper pick up roller.
Open front cover, remove toner cartridge and you will find paper pick up...use wet cloth or alcohol to clear it... Good luck!

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.

Tray will not pick up paper when i press print to do anything


If this is an older unit you may need to check the rollers for wear. After awhile rollers can wear down too smooth to pick up paper.
