If you don't have a friend whose computer has a floppy disk drive, your local library may have one. Open and print out the instructions or save the file to a USB flash drive. I hope you are talking about a 3.5" floppy, not a 5.25" soft floppy !

Hi,

Remove the jammed paper. Unplug the printer from the mains and PC. Inspect the rollers, etc for tiny paper piece(s) that may be stuck, or other debris. Try to clean rollers and make sure they are dry. Keep printer unplugged for about 2 minutes and replug and try a test print. Also make sure that you have waited long enough for the printer to heat up before giving a print job. Finally, it could be an issue with the paper sensor. If this is the case, you will probably have to take the printer in for servicing..
Thanks
Thiru

The paper feed kit is the pick up rollers and the transfer rollers. You can thake those out clean them and replace them, but unless you are actually having paper feed issues usually just clean the paper tray feed rollers with alcohol and reset the paper feed kit counter if needed.

Seems like the rubber feeder wheels won't pick-up the paper to feed... what can I do to get my HP 870cse to feed?


Usually that is caused by foreign object restricting the operation.
take the feeding tray out and open the top and examine it for foreign objects. It may need a little cleaning.

Hello,

This sounds like a problem with the paper pick up rollers. I would suggest cleaning the rollers with a little isopropyl alcohol. Please make sure the machine is turned off when doing the cleaning. Let the rollers dry for a few minutes. If this does not work, The rollers would probably have to be replaced.

Wont grip paper on feed, keeps 'saying' paperjam


I have had this problem after printing a large batch of sheets on a heavy matte photo paper. The roller picks up a 'polish' from the surface coating and then fails to grip. I have tried cleaning the roller, with some sucess, but the best solution I have found is to feed through several blank sheets (just page throws in a Word document) of a ordinary 80 gram paper. Doing this between smaller batches of the photo printing seems to keep things flowing.

HP Deskjet 820 Cse will not load paper


I have fixed this problem by cleaning the three large paper feed rollers. You can get at them by removing the paper tray.

HP told me many years ago that, over time, additives used in the rubber material that makes up the rollers moves to the surface and makes the roller slippery so that it does not drag the paper forward.

I clean mine by rubbing the surface with a rag soaked in methylated spirits (a type of denatured alcohol). A fiddle of a task but it works.
