transfer roller that starts the paper and feed that feed the paper. have you had a paper jam and torn a piece of paper off inside the feed mech? i dont remember if this one feeds off the motor or a belt. either way you would have to disasemble the printer to determine where the problem lies. might be more econimical to replace the printer.

One common cause of paper feed issues is a build up of dust on the printer's
rear paper feed roller. This roller consists of a plastic axle white roller.
This is located in the automatic sheet feeder and is referred to as the "Pick
Roller." As dust builds up on the rubber rollers, they become less tacky and
therefore unable to grab a single sheet of paper.
To prevent and/or cure this type of paper feed problem, these rubber rollers should be cleaned.
Unplug the printer's power cord and remove the paper from the automatic sheet feeder. Please remove the paper access door from back of the printer and clean the white rollers inside with a cloth dampened with warm water (be sure there is no excess water on the cloth as it may drip into the machine). After these are free of any dust, close the paper access door. Reload the paper and plug the power cord back in. The paper should then feed normally.
Next, try this printer self-test by following the steps given below:
1. Turn the printer ON.
2. Press the down arrow button till the screen displays “Maintenance". .
3. Press the "Check" button.
4. Press the "Down arrow" button till the screen displays “Print Test Page.”
5. Press the "Check" button.
The self-test should at least print out a set of either black or color bars, if not both (if you have a printer with both color and black installed simultaneously). Should this test fail, try it again without cartridges installed. If the self-test still fails to take paper in and make sounds like the carrier is moving across the paper, this is a hardware issue, and the printer will require service. If the self-test completes without any cartridges installed, run the self-test again with the color cartridge installed by itself. (If you have both black and color cartridges, after this test, run the test again with just the black cartridge installed.) If you find that either cartridge causes the self-test to fail, please let us know.
If the self-test prints, but has lines or smudges or other print quality issues, let us know. This includes any print quality issues, we need to know if the problems you have with your black or color are based in the printer, or communications with your computer, or the computer's software.
If the self-test prints your test bar(s) clearly, the printer hardware is not at fault.

Please do all the things that you can do before you consider buying a new printer. You can take your printer into a service repair center or computer repair center in your place. If there is nothing that they can do then you can take an option of buying a new one.
