Have you installed the printer driver? If you did and it won't print....uninstall it and reinstall the driver.

Are you using Dell Series 5 ink cartridges?

Can you copy a document under the glass? Black & White and color? Do they look ok?

If you unplug the printer from the wall and remove the power brick for 60 seconds, this will reset any error messages the printer has. I would then plug everything back in.

Power on the printer.

Open the printer(with the power on) and take out the Dell Series 5 black cartridge and then reseat it. I would then take out the color Dell Series 5 ink cartridge and reseat it. Now close the printer and it will print an alignment page.

Any error messages?

black cartridge = black side(left side) color cartridge = color side(right side)

photo cartridge = black side(left side) color cartridge = color side(right side)

Dell Series 5 ink cartridges have a sensor in them that cannot be reset. Article on refilling Dell ink cartridges .

Dell Series 5 ink cartridges can be purchased at Staples, Walmart or Dell's Website.

It's possible to get a Dell Series 5 ink cartridge with a bad sensor. I would that these back to the place of purchase for a replacement or a refund.

Paper feed keeps jamming

There could be something blocking the paper input, turn it upside down and give it a shake, or if possible take the top off and have a look around for any obstructions

When faxing does paper face uup or down

You load the originals print side uo on the document feeder tray or print side down on the glass.
To send a single page fax you can either load the original on document feeder tray or on the glass; to send a multi-page fax you must use the document feeder tray.

The position of the paper is the same either you copy, fax or scan.
All this is clearly explained in the user's manual, that you should read and you can download from HP support pages for you printer:

Printing line on each copy

Most likely there is something on the seal glass, Open the feeder and look at the small strip of glass, see if it is dirty.
the other possibility is that there is a streaking problem in the drum cartridge or in the fuser in that area.
Start with the glass, then look at the drum, You will most likely find the problem on one of those 2 areas.
I really suspect a small spot on the glass where the paper passes over when making the copy through the feeder
