Keeps saying load paper, paper is in


Are the rollers worn out? If they have a slick appearance, that is your problem. Also examine the tray and see if it is lifting properly.

Paper is inserted properly but error message keeps saying "Load paper face down in Main tray"


i think the printer has 2 trays, one down and the other one on top from where you insert the paper. load the paper there as well. if there is only one tray then check the paper sensor in the bottom, if the paper end sensor comes out of position then it will not detect the paper.

The option you are after can be found on the Print screen, if you click on the button saying Printer Preferences. Normally you will have multiple tabs, so click on the one saying Paper and on the Paper Tray option select Manual Feeder.

When printing says out of paper load paper. There is paper in tray.


a. check paper path to ensure it's clear.careful about pulling any paper scraps out of the printer b. remove the paper, and fan it(shuffle with fingers)
make sure it's dry and clean
put a smaller stack in first, and do a test page first.

HP Photosmart C6280 paper jam--won't print (of course), message reads 'add paper to main tray'


Please try this to clear the paper jam

  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.
