In order to solve this issue try the below mentioned step:
1. If you have a photo paper tray installed just above the main tray, pull it back towards you otherwise it blocks the paper feed.
This should resolve your paper feed issue.

Do I need a special paper for this printer?


no not necessarily. I suggest you align your printer tray in such a way that it will instantly insert the paper and print it successfully. Otherwise the problem is maybe the unit itself or the drivers..

Loading your paper
Paper loading tips:
● Load paper with the side to be printed facing down.
● You can print photos and documents on a wide variety of paper sizes, from
8 x 13 cm (3 x 5 inch) up to 22 x 61 cm (8.5 x 24 inch). The 10 x 15 cm
(4 x 6 inch) photo paper is available with and without tabs.
● Before loading paper, pull the Main paper tray out (use the Main tray release or
the tray grips) and slide out the paper-width and paper-length guides to make
room for the paper. After loading paper, adjust the guides to fit close to the edges
of the paper without bending the paper. When finished loading paper, push the
Main tray back in all the way.
● Load only one type and size of paper at a time in the same tray.
● After loading paper, extend the Output tray extension to catch your printed pages.
Use the directions in the following table to load the most commonly used paper sizes
into the printer.

How to load paper


Your model has two trays on the front. The bottom one of these two is where you load the blank paper.
1. Raise the output tray to load paper into the main input tray.
2. Slide the paper-width guide to its outermost position.
3. Tap a stack of paper on a flat surface to align the edges, and then check the paper for the following:
• Make sure it is free of rips, dust, wrinkles, and curled or bent edges.
• Make sure all the paper in the stack is the same size and type.
4. Insert the stack of paper into the main input tray with the short edge forward and the side to be printed down. Slide the stack of paper forward until it stops.
5. Slide the paper-width guide inward until it stops at the edge of the paper.
Do not overload the main input tray; make sure the stack of paper fits within the main input tray and is no higher than the top of the paper-width guide.
6. Lower the output tray.
7. Pull the output tray extender towards you, as far as it will go.

I hope this helps!

Smaller items will only feed crookedly into the printer document


Check to see if you are feeding the envelopes and 4x6 cards/photo paper correctly.

Both envelopes and 4x6 cards must be loaded and centered on the paper exit tray (not inside the paper input tray).

Printing envelopes:
  • Up to 15 envelopes can be loaded at a time.
  • The print side of the envelope faces down.
  • The envelopesare centered on the paper exit tray.
  • You print the envelopes with Landscape orientation.
Printing cards:
  • Up to 35 greeting cards, index cards, postcards, or photo cardscan be loaded at a time.
  • The print side of the cards faces down.
  • The cards are centered on the paper exit tray.
  • You select Automatic, Normal, or Photo print quality.

For images on how to correctly load the paper, download your printer user's guide:

Wont grip paper on feed, keeps 'saying' paperjam


I have had this problem after printing a large batch of sheets on a heavy matte photo paper. The roller picks up a 'polish' from the surface coating and then fails to grip. I have tried cleaning the roller, with some sucess, but the best solution I have found is to feed through several blank sheets (just page throws in a Word document) of a ordinary 80 gram paper. Doing this between smaller batches of the photo printing seems to keep things flowing.

If you using a mac: After choosing the Photosmart C7200 to print your file on the print preview, change PAPER SIZE to 4x6, then lower down, change from PREVIEW to PAPER TYPE/QUALITY, more options will open underneath, on SOURCE, change from MAIN TRAY to PHOTO TRAY. You should also change the PAPER TYPE to some kind of PHOTO PAPER (whichever one your using, but the standard seems to be HP ADVANCED PHOTO PAPER)

My HP Photosmart D7260 is not printing pictures


Ok! You didn't tell me how old is the printer, what type of paper and what size you tried to print so I'll do my best to help.

Please note:
  • The photo paper cassette cannot be installed when printing on paper loaded in the in tray.
  • The 7260 printer support 5x7 media only when printing from a computer with the printer software installed.
Loading 5 x 7 inch paper in the HP Photosmart 7260 printer
  1. Lift the main cover of the printer, and slide the paper width guide as far to the left as it will go.
  2. Lift the Out-tray and place a stack of paper in the In-tray.
    • Load the paper with the side to be printed facing down.
    • Load paper in the portrait orientation with the shortest edge feeding into the printer.
    • Do not use too much or too little paper. It may be difficult for the printer to pick up a sheet of paper when there are only one or two sheets in the in tray.
    • Use one type and size of paper at a time. Do not mix paper types or sizes in the In-tray.
  3. Push the paper into the printer as far as it will go without bending.
  4. Lower the Out-tray.
  5. Adjust the paper width guide to fit snugly against the edge of the paper without bending the paper. The paper width guide holds the paper straight as it feeds into the printer.
  6. Close the main cover.
Load 4 x 6 inch (10 x 15 cm) photo paper in an HP Photosmart
Use the photo cassette to load 4 x 6 inch (10 x 15 cm) paper. To print borderless photos, use 4 x 6 inch photo paper with a 0.5 inch tab (10 x 15 cm with 1.25 cm tab). This allows the photo to print without borders on three sides and with a small border on the bottom edge that can be torn off.
HP does not recommend printing borderless photos on plain paper. Also, remove any paper from the In tray before inserting the photo cassette into the printer.
1. Lift the top cover of the printer and remove the photo cassette from the sheath.
2. Place up to 15 sheets of photo paper in the photo cassette with the side to be printed facing down. For tabbed paper, insert the paper so the tabbed end goes into the cassette first.
3. Lift the main cover.
4. Slide the paper width guide all the way to the left.
5. Lift the Out tray and remove any paper that is in the In tray.
6. Line the photo cassette up with the far right edge of the In tray.
7. Gently slide the photo cassette into the printer until it snaps into place.
8. Lower the Out tray.
9. Slide the paper width guide to the right until it cradles the photo cassette, then close the main cover.
If the Out of Paper message appears on the computer and the product stops picking up or feeding paper.
Step one: Reset the product
1. Without turning the product off, remove the power cord from the back of the product.
2. Wait 30 seconds and then plug the power cord into the back of the product.
3. If the product is not already on, use the On button to turn it on.
Step two: Check the condition of the paper and reload it
1. Replace any paper that is ripped, dusty, curled, wrinkled, or bent.
NOTE: Use only plain, white, unused paper in the product until the issue is resolved.
2. Make sure that all the paper is the same size and type. Because only one type of paper can be used in the product at a time, paper types should never be mixed.
3. Tap the stack of paper on a flat surface to align the edges.
4. Make sure that the stack of paper to be loaded in the product contains no fewer than 10 and no more than 25 sheets of paper.
NOTE: Do not load too much paper in the product.
5. Insert the stack of paper into the product and gently push the paper guides snugly against the paper. Make sure that the paper is completely inserted into the product and can be picked up by the paper rollers.
6. Try printing again. If the issue is not resolved, try loading different brands of paper and different types of paper, one type at a time, into the product and then try printing again.
If the issue persists, continue with the next step.
Step three: Adjust the paper settings in the print driver
The paper settings in the print driver must match the paper settings for at least one of the installed paper trays.
1. Open a document in the program being used to print.
2. Click File , click Print , and then click Properties . The product Properties dialog box appears.
3. Click the Paper/Quality tab.
4. Choose the appropriate paper size from the Size is drop-down menu.
5. Choose the appropriate paper type from the Type is drop-down menu.
6. Click OK and then click OK again to print the document..
7. If the issue is not resolved, continue with the next step.
NOTE: If the issue is resolved and it is necessary to print on another type of paper, load the new paper type into the product and then repeat steps 2 through 7 for the new paper.These changes do not change the default print settings. The print settings return to the default the next time the program is opened.
Step four: Clean the rollers
1. Turn off the product and unplug the power cord.
2. Open the access door to gain access to the rollers. Depending on the model, this is usually the rear access door. See the product user guide for information about locating the rollers.
3. Clean the rubber rollers with a lint-free cloth, lightly moistened with water.
NOTE: Distilled, filtered, or bottled water is recommended for cleaning the rollers. Tap water might contain contaminants that can damage the rollers.
4. Make sure that any paper rollers that rest on the input tray, which are located behind the back rollers, are cleaned. A clean cotton swab, lightly moistened with water, might be necessary to reach these rollers.
5. Close the access door and plug in the power cord.
6. Try printing again. If the issue is not resolved, continue to the next step.
Step five: Service the product
If you have completed all the steps listed above and are still experiencing a problem, service the product.
If your product is less than a year old, don't worry, HP can trace the product when you provide the model and the serial number and will help you if it is in warranty. No prove of purchase required.

Printer Printing Crooked!


try printing from the multi purpose tray...do you get the same problem...if not you can narrow the problem down to the paper tray area...try changing main pickup roller and separation pad. If problem is present printing from either tray then the next place I would go is to the registration assembly (flapped unit that resides under the toner cartridge). The job of the part is to line the paper up before it feeds further in to the printing process. You could also do whats called a 1/2 test...put paper in the mp tray, do a print and when there is only about 2-3 inches of the paper sticking out the mp tray open the toner lid...lift out the toner cartridge and see if paper is skewed before entering the fuser. It really does sound like the registration assembly.
