Step one: Reset the product

Without turning the product off, remove the power cord from the back of the product.
Wait 30 seconds and then plug the power cord into the back of the product.
If the product is not already on, use the On button to turn it on.

Step two: Check the condition of the paper and reload it

Replace any paper that is ripped, dusty, curled, wrinkled, or bent.

NOTE: Use only plain, white, unused paper in the product until the issue is resolved.

Make sure that all the paper is the same size and type. Because only one type of paper can be used in the product at a time, paper types should never be mixed.

Tap the stack of paper on a flat surface to align the edges.

Make sure that the stack of paper to be loaded in the product contains no fewer than 10 and no more than 25 sheets of paper.

NOTE: Do not load too much paper in the product.

Insert the stack of paper into the product and gently push the paper guides snugly against the paper. Make sure that the paper is completely inserted into the product and can be picked up by the paper rollers.

Try printing again. If the issue is not resolved, try loading different brands of paper and different types of paper, one type at a time, into the product and then try printing again.
If the issue persists, continue with the next step.

Step three: Adjust the paper settings in the print driver

The paper settings in the print driver must match the paper settings for at least one of the installed paper trays.

Open a document in the program being used to print.

Click File , click Print , and then click Properties . The product Properties dialog box appears.

Click the Paper/Quality tab.
Choose the appropriate paper size from the Size is drop-down menu.
Choose the appropriate paper type from the Type is drop-down menu.
Click OK and then click OK again to print the document..
If the issue is not resolved, continue with the next step.

NOTE: If the issue is resolved and it is necessary to print on another type of paper, load the new paper type into the product and then repeat steps 2 through 7 for the new paper.These changes do not change the default print settings. The print settings return to the default the next time the program is opened.

Step four: Clean the rollers

Turn off the product and unplug the power cord.
Open the access door to gain access to the rollers. Depending on the model, this is usually the rear access door. See the product user guide for information about locating the rollers.
Clean the rubber rollers with a lint-free cloth, lightly moistened with water.

NOTE: Distilled, filtered, or bottled water is recommended for cleaning the rollers. Tap water might contain contaminants that can damage the rollers.

Make sure that any paper rollers that rest on the input tray, which are located behind the back rollers, are cleaned. A clean cotton swab, lightly moistened with water, might be necessary to reach these rollers.
Close the access door and plug in the power cord.

Try printing again. If the issue is not resolved, continue to the next step.

Step five: Service the product

If you have completed all the steps listed above and are still experiencing a problem, service the product.

Cause

Any of the following issues can cause the error message to appear:
The paper trays are empty or overloaded.
The paper is curled.
The print side, or shiny side, of the paper is not loaded in the input tray face down.
The paper might not be engaged with the feed rollers.
The paper-width guide is pressed against the paper stack too tightly.
The paper tray is not completely inserted into the product.
The paper settings in the print driver do not match the paper loaded in the paper tray.
The rubber paper-feed rollers are coated with dust.

Here are the specs for paper for that printer. It's not listed on the HP website the same as you've listed it.

Here's a video about how to solve jams on that printer. If the paper doesn't meet specs, the video won't help.

PHOTOSMART C7280 PAPER JAM, WE CANNOT GET TO THE PAPER


If you read the troubleshooting section about paper jams (in the book) you will see that you clear paper jams by unclipping the duplexer at the back of the printer. It has two quick-release buttons on the sides - just push them in, it pops out and you can clear it. My 85-year-old mother had the same problem.

My printer The HP C7280 does not feed the paper, what can I do?


you can try to remove the rubber roller that pulls the paper into the printer. Once removed clean it with some rubber renew. If it is very smooth and does not have any texture left in the rubber, the rollers will have to be replaced.

I have installed the HP Photosmart C7280 All-in-One and tried to print an article off the computer. I have paper loaded in the tray-I get a message Out of Paper. Load paper face down in Main Tray. What's...


I experienced the same problem on a HP Photosmart C7280 All-in-one printer. The problem was that the light-blue plastic piece, which covers half of the printing paper tray, had gotten out of alignment with the gray piece which covers the other half of the paper stack. Pull the blue plastic tray out and align it properly.
