Solution, take out the tray if you look on the bottom of the machine there is a metal plate. in the middle of the plate there is a bump turn the tray upside down and look at the bottom, there is a small hole with a plastic lever. it is probably broken. when the tray is slid into position the lever hits the bump and releases the lifting mechanism. replace that part or the tray. I can get you a new tray e-mail me at

SOURCE: Printer won't stop jamming
sounds like your printer wants to form it's own three piece band(kidding here).
sounds like you rollers are dirty or have something on one or both of them..like tires on a slippery road, these need to be clean and dry.

Okay.. 1st off I'm probably going to the jumped on for this... But.. I fix and/or make them work printers, computers and all sorts of electronic gear. For a living... Yes .. the manufacturer will tell you not to use alcohol to clean the rollers. but it does work. Windex (ammonia) will clean the heads at times. I also use Scotch brite pads to clean the pickup rollers. We get them in about 8x10 inch pads.
I will spay some alcohol on the end where the pick up roller is. Place the pad in normal paper tray. Most printers have a cam shaped one on the right, left or in the middle. That gets the paper moving. The pad is way to thick to actually move and will cause a jam indication on the printer. But what happens is the roller will slip on the pad and clean itself. Pretend you cleared the jam a couple of times and the printer will try to pick up the 'paper' and jam again. A couple of these and the pick up roller (cam shaped) will usually be good to go. The other option (the best) is to buy a new pickup roller for the printer. But cleaning will work for the short term. What happens on most printers is the roller gets very smooth from normal use and then won't pick up the paper for the rest of the trip through the printer. I have used a piece of fine grade sand paper, but you have to hold it so it won't go through the printer and it makes a gritty mess... Once I orderd a 'printer cleaner' from HP and all it was, was a couple of pieces of scotch brite glued to a fancy holder to match the spacing of the rollers. That's when I started using sheets of the stuff. Just pretend they are a piece of printer paper. In the worst case I have used belt dressing and then alcohol to clean most of it off. Alcohol has a tendency to soften the rubber on the pickup roller. That's why the company says don't use it. But you can by rubber rejuvenator that is mainly alcohol.. Go figure.........

he problem you are having is caused by a worm separation pad assembly. This assembly is what separates the paper into individual sheets. It takes about 30 minutes to disassemble the printer and replace the part. Most printer repair shops will do the repair for you but the cost may be a bit much. If you are interested in doing the repair yourself we do stock the part. We can provide the separation assembly and a service manual on CD that gives directions for replacing the parts plus other information about the printer. The part and guide runs $14.95 plus shipping. Let me know if you need one, tech

Tips for a great answer:

1> Open the sheet feeder cover and pull out the paper support.
Set paper, aligning the right edge of the paper to the cover guide with the paper's print side facing up.
Pinch and slide the paper guide to the paper's left side.
Note: Make sure to set paper lengthwise. Setting Credit Card sized paper long-side down by mistake may cause a paper jam.
Pull down the paper output tray supporting with both hands.
Pull out the extension completely.
Ensure that the Power lamp and the Auto Sheet Feeder lamp light.
Note: If the Cassette lamp lights, press the Paper Feed switch to light the Auto Sheet Feeder lamp.
If the Auto Sheet Feeder lamp does not light even after pressing the Paper Feed switch, Paper Source in the printer driver may be set to the setting other than Paper Feed Switch.
