Mp530 keeps telling me to load paper when it is already loaded. I have tried reseting and unplugging everything . It will print randomly but very few and far between

you need to check the cable connected to the printer. if you are using the USB cable make sure it meets the standard recommened by the manufacturers usually it will be USB V2.0 but if still the same problem try to change the cable and also do try to remove the driver from the system and restart the computer. DO NOT CONNECT THE PRINTER YET re install the CD provided and when the software asks you to connect the printer connect it. This should solve the problem.

We keep getting a out of paper error and the tray has paper, we have restarted, cleaned the rollers and have replaced the paper, we have restarted both the computer adn the printer and canceled all jobs...

Follow this steps..
We need to focus on the printer itself and make sure that it will work before connecting to your computer.
Reset the all-in-one printer
  1. Take out all the papers on the printer.
  2. Completely shutdown the computer.
  3. Without turning off the printer, unplug the power cable at the back of the printer
  4. Unplug the USB cable at the back of the printer.
  5. While the printer is off and unplug, on the printer press the # and 3 at the same time.
  6. Wait for 1min.
  7. Keep on pressing the # and 3, then plug the power cable back in.
  8. The printer should be on automatically, if not turn on the printer using the on/off button while pressing the # and 3 and you should have a message that says "NVM" reset.
  9. It will do some initialization, then if the printer is asking to load the paper.
  10. Re-arrange the paper, then load it to the printer.
  11. Try making some test w/ the printer (try to make a copy on the printer)
  12. If you can now make a copy, It means the printer is now working.
  13. Plug the USB cable back in to the printer and computer.
  14. If you are having issues printing from the computer, download the HP's print diagnostic utility.
  15. Click here.

It should be okay by then. If your still having issues w/ the printer. Contact HP 1-800-474-6836
Good Luck :)

Hi, my lexmark x2600 paper load light keeps blinking. I think my daughter was messing with the buttons.

Try to remove all sheets of paper. Then unplug the power adapter from the printer. The power adapter is the black box behind the printer where the power cord is attached. Leave the other end of the power cord attached to the power outlet in the wall. Wait at least 30 seconds before plugging back the power adapter in the printer. When the printer's ready, load some papers and check if it's working fine now. Keep me posted by leaving a comment. Thanks.

Printer thinks it's out of paper

Have you tried pressing the start button after you loaded the paper?

Also, try restarting the printer while keeping the paper in there.

E-03 Error "Paper Out" - but there is plenty of paper

It sounds that the sensor that responsible in detecting papers to be feed in the printer is malfunctioning. I can suggest some work around if this thing won't work then you need to send your printer to service.
Please check for any obstruction inside the printer like paper, plastic, tapes. Turn on and turn off the printer and make sure that you load the paper correctly.
If the issue still present then its a hardware failure. If your printer is under warranty I suggest to call your
printer's manufacturer and have them replaced or if you think buying new printer is more cost effective then buy new printer.
