Check inside the machine at both ends of the cartridge carriage path i.e. far left and far right. Check for scrunched up paper and note, if it is there, it will likely be black with ink. If found please remove. Next take the back off the machine (there is usually a removable plate there to get to paper jams) and remove anything you find there. Also look right through towards the front and see if the little drop down paper feed sensor arms are all visible and swing freely. If not, fix them as you can. Once you have done these things, put everything back together and leave the printer powered off for 30sec. Power it up and see what happens. If you are still no go, either take it to a service tech or check to see if your insurance covers printers being beaten to death with a 4 pound hammer.
I had same problem. It ended up being a paper jam altho I could never see anything jammed in the paper paths. Perhaps it was a tiny piece of torn paper that I couldn't see. Anyhow, I fixed it by taking a piece of 8.5x11 cardstock and manually pushing it into the paper feed path in between the rollers. It did not go all the way through so I pushed it in and pulled it back out a few times. Apparently it dislodged whatever was causing the jam and the doggone yellow light finally stopped flashing!!! good luck.
The feeder on this model has 1 weak mounting place for the gears that drive the feed roller. The plastic stud that holds the gear will break off of the frame and cause the noises you hear and no paper feed. The only fix is to replace the sheet feeder assembly, about $30.00 for the part.
With out knowing the make and Model of the copier it can be difficult!
Suggest that you clean the rollers that pick up the paper with a clean lint free cloth and water.Ensure that you unplug the machine from the power point first.
The problem sounds like the rear paper guide of the paper tray is too tight aginst the paper. Back the guide off about 1/16 of an inch and see if that helps. You may also want to check and make sure the tray is set for the correct paper size of the paper you are using. Good luck!
the gears of the printer r worn out and they have hanve lost their allignment settings so this problem.either replace the gears.or the other solution.do not insert the paper in the tray ,keep it little bit outside and hold the end of the paper in hand when you will give a printout the printer will make a noise of picking the paper at that time just push the paper inside and then it will print properly.
Since you did not specify a model I am going to assume you have a top feed model.
Remove the paper, flip upside down and shake.
Does anything seem to be in there rattling or fall out?
I had somebody bring in a printer for servicing because paper would not feed, turn out her kid was eating while standing over the printer. A half a pretzel came out...
But then this could have nothing to do with your problem
There is probably a paper jam in the tray feed path. The other situation is that the tray paper pick up roller has become hardened/polished, or the paper tray paper is greasy. First step, take the paper from the tray, and fan it out, so each sheet is separated from the next. try it with jut a dozen or so sheets, change the paper.
