HP Photosmart C 7280 paper feed problem

When printing I get a ''Out of paper, load tray'' message. There are 20 sheets in the paper tray. I take them out and install again in tray and it prints once or twice. Then I get the same message again and go through the paper loading procedure and it works one more time. Any ideas? TIA.

Hi,
check the feed tray is good, if so.
Clean the feed rollers,
Lint free cloth, distilled water.
Should be good.

Regards
Richard.

Also, the paper duplicator?..I, can't remember what you call it, but when you have a paper jam you have to take it off at the back and then put it back on again. Well, if it isn't put back on properly, you will continue to get the "Out of Paper, load tray" message.

My D7460 will not feed paper The screen says load paper face down in main tray.


Usually this occurs when a printer has had fairly excessive use. This causes the rubber paper feed rollers to become shiny and then they are unable to grab the paper, or it grabs several sheets at the same time. Newer laser printers have now have grooved belt tracks to help prevent this problem.

The easiest way I have found is to BUFF the shiny tracks... Here´s how... Using a ladies nail file (sand paper type) Press the paper feed button to cause the rollers to slowly rotate and buff the rubber as it turns. Making sure no sand enters the rollers. If several sheets of paper feed at the same time. Pull them out and a trick to stop this happening is... to fan the paper before loading into the paper tray. The trapped air will allow the sheets to glide easier.

Printer will not print


I had the same problem and to fix it there was a blue tray I had to pull out (the tray for the photopaper). Once it was pulled out so it was about flush with grey part beside it, the printer worked again. (The photopaper tray is just above where you put the regular paper.)

Printing Photos on Photo Paper


Ensure u are placing the paper in the photo tray..
if u r printing from the memory card which is inserted in the printer..ensure that the PHOTO BUTTON on the printer is on..
You can also try to reset the printer by going to the SETTINGS/TOOLS menu (RENCH SYMBOL) and then look for the Factory Restore (Might be under "Preferences")

your printer is capable of accepting a5, load the paper on a different direction, with the leading edge 5.83" feed first, then properly aligned the side guides to match your paper this will surely work this time, then slect a5 on your printing properties on your pc

Brother HL 2070N red paper light blinks but won't print.


Just fixed my printer issue, had the same problem, Would load 1 sheet, then jam, sometimes it won't pull the paper out of the tray, sometimes it would pull the paper to the toner area, but never into the toner, opening and slamming the paper tray while it attempted to load would usually work, but who wants to slam the tray 50 times? I was using Walgreens generic paper, 20lb, took some higher-quality 24lb HP paper and VOILA! It works every time! EVERYONE WHO IS HAVING THIS PROBLEM, CHECK THAT YOU ARE USING 24LB PAPER!!! Brother says 20-24 is acceptible, but sneaking one sheet of 20lb paper about 15 sheets down in a 20 sheet print job and it will stop at it every time, You can feel the difference, less like toilet paper and more like real paper.

24 LB PAPER! USE IT NOW AND THANK ME LATER!

Did you try this from HP.

I also suggest you remove the back door & clean the wheels with a clean no lint water dampend rag. Replace the door.
