Question about HP OfficeJet G85 All-In-One InkJet Printer
This printer feeds 2 sheets instead of 1.
Yes, I have had the same problem at times. The best solution is to 'fan' the paper well (put air between the sheets) BEFORE putting it in the tray. Also, tap down the front edge of paper (that enters the printer) to align the sheets better. You can also clean the rollers with a damp rag to help traction. Hope this helps!
