Question about HP Photosmart 3210 All-In-One InkJet Printer
To resolve this issue pick one blank sheet and insert it in the tray and try to print self test page. If the printer prints self test page then load the paper properly and try to print. If self test page won't print then check the paper settings.

after time the pickup roller stop picking the paper due to dust coming from the paper, try cleaning all the pickup parts with isopropyl or some other solvent that will not attack plastic

SOURCE: Does not load
Do you hear the Paper clutches activate in other words do you hear the printer trying to pick up the paper, if so then your clucthes are working but, your paper feed tire could be worn, have a tech replace this. If you don't hear this then it's could be the selonoid not activate which means the soleniod or the board.

Okay.. 1st off I'm probably going to the jumped on for this... But.. I fix and/or make them work printers, computers and all sorts of electronic gear. For a living... Yes .. the manufacturer will tell you not to use alcohol to clean the rollers. but it does work. Windex (ammonia) will clean the heads at times. I also use Scotch brite pads to clean the pickup rollers. We get them in about 8x10 inch pads.
I will spay some alcohol on the end where the pick up roller is. Place the pad in normal paper tray. Most printers have a cam shaped one on the right, left or in the middle. That gets the paper moving. The pad is way to thick to actually move and will cause a jam indication on the printer. But what happens is the roller will slip on the pad and clean itself. Pretend you cleared the jam a couple of times and the printer will try to pick up the 'paper' and jam again. A couple of these and the pick up roller (cam shaped) will usually be good to go. The other option (the best) is to buy a new pickup roller for the printer. But cleaning will work for the short term. What happens on most printers is the roller gets very smooth from normal use and then won't pick up the paper for the rest of the trip through the printer. I have used a piece of fine grade sand paper, but you have to hold it so it won't go through the printer and it makes a gritty mess... Once I orderd a 'printer cleaner' from HP and all it was, was a couple of pieces of scotch brite glued to a fancy holder to match the spacing of the rollers. That's when I started using sheets of the stuff. Just pretend they are a piece of printer paper. In the worst case I have used belt dressing and then alcohol to clean most of it off. Alcohol has a tendency to soften the rubber on the pickup roller. That's why the company says don't use it. But you can by rubber rejuvenator that is mainly alcohol.. Go figure.........

With injet/lower cost printers, a mechanical flag or lever is actuated by the paper. It can be an optical sensor as well, more likely in a laser.
The optical sensor can be gummed up with dust, or paper fragments. A mechanical flag or lever can be dislodged or bent by overloading or pulling jammed paper out, backwards to the paper path.
Your best tool is a bright light and a carefull visual inspection to see if anything is dislodged or dusty in the paper tray or in the receiver for the tray.
Dustoff will clean the dust, care should be used in readjusting the flag or lever.
