Re: hp 1300 with added papaer feed tray q2485a

I am a little unclear as to where the problem is but you should check the pick up rollers and make sure they are not smooth, there needs to be some grip to them. If that does not seem to be the problem then the gears may be out of alignment.

When you print a document you can go to printer properties and select Paper Source then Tray 1 or Tray 2 before you print.
My HP printer I have white paper in Tray 1 and recycled paper in Tray 2.

Hi. You leave a question mark?

I don't understsand what you mean by Papaer feed will not "DROP DOWN"?

I to have the same printer, the paper feeds from the tray (s) from below.

A little more info please?

The grinding in the system trying to feed through the paper.

Just a thought, turn the printer round find the release levers and check the internals for paper jam.

My HP laser printer 1300 had a paper jam

When printing or copying, paper will not pick up or feed into the HP LaserJet 1000, 1200 or 1300 series product causing paper jams or wrinkled output. Symptoms are as follows:
  • The pickup roller will spin and try to pick paper.
  • The paper will partially feed into the product accompanied by a crackling, crunching noise then jamming.
  • The paper may feed all the way through the paper path accompanied by a crackling, crunching noise. The output will be skewed and wrinkled.
SOLUTION: Reposition the black Mylar light shields back into the proper position.
  1. Unplug the power cord from the product.
  2. Remove the paper and paper input tray.
  3. Slide hands, palms side up, into the paper input tray cavity (see Figure 1) until the fingertips reach the end of the cavity. Figure 1: Paper input tray cavityc00068598.jpg
  4. Bend fingers up to push the black Mylar light shields back into place. The proper position of the black Mylar light shield will be flat.
  5. Reconnect the power cord.
  6. Print a self-test/configuration page to verify product is functioning correctly.

Feeds ok from tray 1 but not tray 2 which is 11x17. There are slight buffed marks at on the papaer in 4 spots but paper wont advance. marks are about 1/4 inch long

those marks are the rollers trying to move the paper. check to see if your tray 2 is lifting.if it is then replace the feed rollers.

My printer says i am out of paper but i am not

Check if the software you are printing from is set to feed from the manual feed (top back) instead of the main paper tray. You can put a sheet of paper in at the top to see if it takes that instead of the main tray, If so, change the settings in the Printer properties to feed from the main tray first.

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.

Load Noises

If the HP LaserJet series printer is experiencing a grinding or odd noise when printing or on power-up, open the printer and remove the print cartridge. Close the printer door.
If the noise does not recur with the print cartridge removed, replace the print cartridge.
If the noise persists, this may indicate a hardware failure. If possible, isolate and identify the location of the noise and contact a local HP sales and service ofice at the number noted in the product User's Guide . A list of phone numbers can be found at .
