SOURCE: won't feed paper

I had the same problem it was not feeding paper, and was giving the out of paper msg, I checked and the feed roller ( small black one in contact with paper) was not rotating, Also when the back cover is removed the roller also did not rotate. I took apart the printer and found that a white gear with the encoder disc (clear film with printed lines) on the central shaft was slighty broken, The shaft is knurled but is a poor design. I had to drill through the gear and the shaft to fit a pin to be able to fully secure the gear to the shaft. Kevin

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Paper feed button flashing

Check your user manual for resetting the printer to factory default settings.

If that doesn't work, unplug your printer from the computer and uninstall your software through Add/Remove Hardware. Shut down your computer and reboot. Reinstall your printer software, following the instructions carefully.

This should clear up your problem.
Let me know if you still are having problems. :)

SOURCE: hp 3310 paper feed

Take off the back of the printer - there is a door running almost the full length which has a latch. Using regular rubbing alcohol and a Q-TIP(R) cotton swab, clean the little rubber rollers which grab the paper from the tray. The rollers you need to clean will be low and on the left as you look at the back of the printer and they are about 2 inches inside the printer. There are 2 of them. Paper dust builds up on them and they fail to grab the next sheet of paper, causing the error message. Works every time!

My Brother MFC 210C Printer, Copier, Scanner isn't feeding the paper.How do I fix this?

Use a water dampened cloth to clean the pickup roller. They get residue on them over time that causes them to not grip the surface of the paper when feeding.

Paper wont feed

there are multiple reasons that paper won't feed into a printer. the pickup roller may be worn and doesn't grip onto the paper, or the printer tray may not be lifting the paper to the pickup roller.

The paper won't feed through. it did one minute then stopped

This is sort of scenario could be caused by dust inside the printer. Dust prevents the rollers from having a firm grip on the paper while picking paper. When one roller has a firm grip and rolls the paper well while the other doesn’t, crumples result. So I will suggest you get a long handle brush and try to reach as far inside the printer as possible and brush (from the back and front). This, if properly done should do it. Brush especially the rollers etc.

Paper tray does not feed at all or may jam several papers

The rubber wheels that feed the paper in can be too soft to grip the paper.
After a long dicussion with the help desk, HP supplied me with a special Paper Feed Cleaning Kit for the 3200 series. This comprises a scraper device that you insert into the paper feeder, and a driver CD. I had to use it three times, Now everything woerk fine.

Good luck!

Paper not feeding

Here is the solution, Inside the upright paper tray, on the bottom, there is a little blue "rubber roller", like 2" short, maybe 1.5" in diameter. That blue roller works as a grip, it feeds one sheet of paper to the main roller, which then passes it to other rollers, coronas, transfers, and such. That is the How, in short, Now the Why. That little blue roller wears down over use, like an eraser. It can not grip the paper, unless you fill the paper completely, or try to feed one page at a time, bending the paper to try to get it to grip.
Sometimes That doesn't work because it's worn down so much. Lexmark sells maintenance kits, which include the grip roller along with other replaceable parts. They may sell just that alone, idk.

Also another problem is the metal bar the roller sits on. That metal bar is connected the small gears on both ends. If those gears aren't moving properly, the rubber grip will not engage. A quick fix may be too lube the gears, or there may be something jammed in those gears.

Feed the paper manually into the printer:
Place a sheet of plain A4 paper in the paper feed tray.
Move the paper support on the left-hand side to the left end of the paper.
Press the paper feed button.
If the paper does not feed, continue with step 2.

Check for any obstructions in the paper feed path:
Disconnect the cables from the back of the printer.
Open the front of the printer and check for anything that may be blocking the paper path.
Close the front lid and remove any paper from the paper feed tray.
Holding the printer in both hands, turn it upside down to see if anything falls out of the paper feed area. (Sometimes objects such as pens, paper clips and so on can fall into the paper feed area and cause blockages.)

Automatic Paper feed

Check the feeder roller inside the printer for any foreign substance stuck to the roller, this may cause it not to grip properly. You can also try a few sheets at a time and make sure the paper tray is gripping the paper, but not too hard. If this fails, the roller may be out of place somewhat, try to reposition it. Let me know how you get on.
