    actually the problem was a little tiny plastic thingy and a little tiny spring that popped out of place on the left side of the paper tray.. $90.00 -- which is not as much as 300.00 but still pretty expensive -- and that was with me taking the printer into a repair shop!

    there are 2 actuators in the front that sense the paper. usually the bigger one is out of position, check to see if it can swing almost all the way in.

Solved at last!!!

The problem isn't mechanical... I just realized that the "no paper" error posts when the software is trying to print to a paper size not supported by the printer. Go to Page Setup and make sure Paper Size is set to Letter.

In my case, the document I was trying to pring was set to Paper Size: Custom, probably because it was a scanned document and it didn't default to Size: Letter automatically. Hope this solution helps someone end their frustration...

Suddenly stopped working


Try another outlet...you may have popped the circuit breaker. If that is the case then reset it and you should be fine. I cannot see the outlet you are plugged into totally...is that a GFI with a reset button on it. That could have popped as well...just push in the button. If my suggestions are not working then message again and I will move to the next part of trouble shooting.

False "paper jam" signal prevents printing: My HP 2210 had been working fine. Suddenly, when I try to print, the paper starts to feed for a few inches and then stops. I get a "clear paper jam" error...


it's probably due to what i would call the print head blocker ( on your left handside of your printer head) that is broken . check it out! it also responsable to control how far goes the sheet before start printing.

All lights on Dell 1710 printer panel simultaneously flashing.


do you or have you recently started using recycled paper. I know for a fact that recycled paper and Dell printers dont get along very well. It's the dust and it will block the hole for the sensor which could show an error or make the printer think there is a paper jam. Youneed a can of compressed air and thoroughly clean it out. If that does not work you can remove completely the software from the pc, let the pc reboot and reload the drivers and software. good luck
