Check the "Feed Switch" button on the control panel (below the ON/OFF button) to be sure the green light at the back of the picture is lit. If not, try pushing the button and then printing again. It worked for me and it was so simple!

SOURCE: Printer will not print
I had the same problem and to fix it there was a blue tray I had to pull out (the tray for the photopaper). Once it was pulled out so it was about flush with grey part beside it, the printer worked again. (The photopaper tray is just above where you put the regular paper.)

I have the same unit. There are many issues with it. First when you install the software you may need to add something to the registry.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Print\Printers\HP Officejet 7400 series\PrinterDriverData and create Key HPDJEnableSecondTray as DWORD with Value of 1
Once you've done this here is the biggest issue and one I've found to fix this issue PERIOD.
You need to go to your Printer Driver then to Properties of it then Device Settings Tab - you will see Form to Tray Assignment in the list and like 5 options, you have to make all but the one you want to NOT AVAILABLE. Example mine is set to Upper than Lower (Letter) all the rest are set to NOT AVAILABLE. Problem solved.

OK, I was having a similar problem: Tray full of paper and tray adjusted properly.
Whatever I tried, the printer kept saying load paper.
I went to print menu>properties button (windows XP this is next to the printer name)>paper source tab.
It tuned out that the paper source had been changed from cassette to multi-purpose tray.
Change it back to cassette and you should be golden.

You may not see a paper jam, so this is worth trying.
This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.
First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.
If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.
And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.
Also clean The purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, Lexmark, Caonon and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing.
That is where you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it.
It also has an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.
So clean all under where the heads are parked and on IP6600D models you can take out the heads just by clipping them out, and then clean well.
Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.
