While I do not have the solution to our problem, I discovered another paper try below where the printed paper comes out.
Close the door to block where the paper would come out if it successfully printed, and look below that, you will find that you can pull out another paper tray. Adjust the little plastic paper guides inside, and your printer will use that paper.
Temporary solution, let me know if you figured out how to fix the problem with it rolling the paper through, just reply/post back to this message. Mine was working perfectly yesterday, and just started that grinding noise today. I've only had it for a couple months, too.

This is a firmware issue with this printer model, and is fairly common. Try the following: remove both of the print cartridges, close the lid, wait for any noises to stop, and pull the power plug out of the back of the printer while it is still on. Wait at least 10 minutes with the cord disconnected. Plug the power back into the printer, wait for the noises to stop, and then reinstall the cartridges, black first (very important), and then the color. This will force the printer to reload its ram memory and should take care of the glitch. Let me know if you need further assistance, as I would like to be sure your problem is fixed.
It requires service as due to dust and dirt the gears are getting stuck, however if you can do it all it requires is a good cleaning and use machine lubricant to oil the iron rod on which the head moves.
Hello tabbeach. The printing cartridge align page message appears if u have any alignment job pending, if it asks to print the alignment page. Follow the steps provided here. Still if u are facing the same issue, perform a HP Media sense caliberation , which in most cases will resolve the issue the steps to perform media sense calibration are provided here . gud luck
there maybe some obstruction on the paper path, inspect visually any sign of abnormality in this area, replacing the ink would not cause this.
it is touching something thats why t is crooked, either small piece of paper, dirt, caked ink, or hardened ink on the roller, feeding unit may have some plate mis adjusted, misaligned feeeding tray as well. try this
Usually in the instruction book or under "help" when you open your Printer under Control panel /Printer Properties there is a section that deal in flashing lights on the printer. This will help in finding out what area the real problem is in...sounds like a paper jam or feed problem.
