SOURCE: Photo Paper Feed
the issue that you have might need to change some settings from the printing properties. WHen you hit on PRINT, a box will open, right? look on the top right of that box, you will see "PROPERTIES" or "Preferences" just click on it, then another box will open. Click on Printing Shortcuts tab, try to review the settings. And if you want to print using the main tray, it should set it to Automatic select or Main tray. And make sure that it sets to General Printing. But if youre going to print a photo, you will have options there to choose what type of paper when you click on that, the settings on the paper size, paper source, etc. will change also. For paper source, make sure that it sets to Photo Tray.
If you will be able to open printing preferences, all options are there, you just need to read and choose which settings you want to use.
Thank you so much.

Try changing completely or at least first cleaning the glassy surface of the toner cartridge first. You can do it with a cotton swab by sweeping the black toner from the surface while manually turning the gear on the side of the cartridge.

Your problem is more than likely that the sensor lever is not properly positioned. You may also have dislodged the shaft from the drive gears (gears on right out side of carriage). Both are easy to do.
Here's a couple pictures of the exact positioning of the paper sensor positioning. It should freely flip up and fall back down with gravity. Remove the tray and check the flag that hangs down.
Just in case you have dislodged the shaft from the geartrain, here's a free copy of the HP Service manual for the printer that will walk you through disassembling the right side for re-mounting the shaft and holder clip for the shaft.
Hope that helps you. :)
If this resolves the issue, hit me with a Fixya! If not ask me further and I'll try and help you some more.

you need the HP software installed, one of the programs deals with scanning. you need to scan one through that, then you should just be able to hit the scan button on the printer.

Check the gear on the left side of your printer where the disk encoder strip is attach,the gear is not holding the metal shaft your need to replace that gear. The problem is in the inner hole where the shafting is attached.
