Try resetting the printer (pressing the cancel button and connecting the power supply, check in the HP website if this is correct for your printer model) , after the reset the printer will clear any errors and will recalibrate the mechanism including the paper feed mechanism and the carriage.
Also check if the carriage is moving freely by disconnecting the power and moving it by hand.

Had the same problem. First clean all the rollers, etc. as shown in the hp manual or online. Look for very small pieces of paper! If this doesn't help phone hp tech support and when you get a technician ask for a person that can take over your computer. After lots of trials I finally got results using this approach and they replaced my printer with a remanufactured one. At least it works now.
