If your printer is not picking up the paper, then it has something to do with the feed rollers not the cartridge.
Take the tray out where you place the plain paper, then get a flashlight and look for some Gray colored rollers.
These rollers need to be cleaned every so often.
I suggest a chemical called "GOO GONE" that is available at your local hardware store. Do NOT get "GOOF OFF" this chemical is too strong and will also melt some plastic material that is out there.

Take a paper towel, and put some GOO GONE on it, and clean the gray rollers.
Then try printing something and see if this helps.
Good luck.

Printer wont pick up paper even though the paper tray is full


There probably is a small piece of paper stuck in the paper path. Please take the ink/toner out of the machine and check the paper path. Please turn off the machine before doing this.

I have a Laserjet p4014dn printer. it warms normally but once it picks up paper, it jams. i have dried clearing jam several times but on starting to print it jams


Three areas you need to check.1.Pick up area: While pick up roller picking up the paper,delay pick or no pick causes paper jam..
2.Registration assembly area: Once paper picked from the tray, paper leading edge registered by the paper sensor located under the registration assembly.. In case this sensor dusty malfunction or flag damage, paper wont sense. result paper damage..
3.Fusing area. If the paper travels up to fuser area, check paper jammed before entering in fuser(Teflon not rotating properly, replace teflon sleeve) or just crossed?(check paper sensors in fuser unit, clean the sensors & check flags,flag springs.

Printer problem


hi, Take out the toner and check for a paper jam.turn the printer upside down and check under the paper tray for a jam. When you reset the printer check to see if the printer picks up the paper, if it tries to pick up the paper then the red light flashes you should rough up the roller on the front above the paper tray, the rollers sometimes get smooth and won't pick paper up. You should also look inside where the toner cartridge goes and there are some little plastic flaps.Check that these are not stopping the paper going it. hope this helps
