You could try cleaning the rollers with some soap and water. Make sure the power is off first.

I install paper input units all the time for $275 including labor. HP printers are our only business.

I do agree that this sounds like it is indeed a PIU problem.

Hi

This error means that the media in tray XX doesn't meet the specified standard of the tray. The specified tray is loaded with media that is longer or shorter in the feed direction than the size configured for the tray. Please check the paper size in current tray or touch OK to change the tray.
To resolve this issue Touch OK to display tray size. Reconfigure the size in the tray so that it uses size of media required for the print job. If the message doesn't clear automatically from the control-panel display, turn the MFP off, and then turn the MFP on.

Restart the printer and repeat the above procedure if issue is not resolved.

My printer will not print the message keep saying out of paper and the paper is full


The feed roller inside the tray cavity is no doubt the problem. The roller gets slick and misses a beat when trying to pick up the paper. Remove the paper tray and look up into the printer and you should see the roller. Clean it and if it real slick looking, replace it.

Error 13.01.00 hp 3005


Thank you for contacting FixYa with your printer inquiry.
This is usually a paper pickup error where paper pickup roller is not contacting the paper in the default paper tray or Pickup roller is worn smooth and not picking up the paper.
Turn the printer around and lift the flap behind the paper tray. If you have a flashlight, get it. You want to watch the action of the paper pickup roller. By observing to see if it is rotating, slipping on the paper or whatever, you should be able to determine why the paper isn't feeding.
Solutions: Make sure the paper size adjuster in the tray (Paper Backstop) is against the paper and correctly set for paper size.
Paper roller slippage - Needs to be replaced. Order a new one. Clean with water or alcohol in the interim while waiting for replacement. Eliminate all the paper dust. Sometimes works.

My desket 3745 light blinks..when I put paper in, the light keeps flashing..says no paper~! doesn't seem to catch the paper to start printing.


This is cased by a dirty paper feed path or paper feed sensor so it will need cleaning and blowing out. Make sure that all the internal paper guides and separators are free of obstruction. Make sure that the sensors are all clean that the internal paper guides are all in place and operate freely. Also clean it with a vacuum with a soft haired brush tool to avoid any damage. Also fan the paper before using it and do not overload the print paper tray. Also check that the pick up rollers are not worn or contaminated with dirt / debris etc. Also make sure that the print tray is not overloaded and make sure that the paper is not to tightly held by the tray side guide.

Also check the paper pick up for wear as this will cause additional pages to be collected and fed through the printer. Make sure that you fan the paper before use ant it is of suitable quality and weight.

HP Deskjet 1200c will not feed paper. Fails to pick up paper from tray. If force pickup by hand can get it to start printing but moves paper in wrong direction as as positions for printing. Does not...


Hello,

This sounds like a problem with the paper pick up rollers. I would suggest cleaning the rollers with a little isopropyl alcohol. Please make sure the machine is turned off when doing the cleaning. Let the rollers dry for a few minutes. If this does not work, The rollers would probably have to be replaced.

When paper is feeding into the printer it takes to many pieces


If the printer is picking up multiple sheets of paper, follow the recommendations below:
  • Keep more than 10 sheets in the In tray.
  • Ensure media is not loaded too far and extending past the In tray.
  • Store all media in a dry, cool place. Humid climates will see this issue more often.
  • Do not print on media that has already been printed on. The dampness of the ink will cause pages to stick together.
If the printer continues to pick up multiple sheets of paper, follow the following troubleshooting steps below:
  1. Remove the media from the In tray.
  2. Fan the edges, re-square the media, and reload the media properly into the In tray.
  3. Slide the paper width guide to the right until it stops at the edge of the media, then push the paper length guide towards the paper until it stops.
  4. NOTE: Not all HP Deskjet printers have rear access doors. Skip this step if your printer does not have a rear-access door. Remove the rear-access door (if applicable) and clean the internal rubber rollers with a soft lintfree cloth moistened with distilled water. Wait until the rubber rollers dry and replace the rear access door.
  5. Verify that the correct media size and type is selected in the printer settings along with the appropriate quality.
  6. If this issue still persists, try a different type of paper.

Lasejet 4 plus- try to print. lower paper cassete full. printer screen says pc load letter and have to manualy load paper. print icon on computer says out of paper


There is a paper empty flag sensor, looks like a plastic paddle, in the tray area. Pull out the paper tray and flick it; make sure that it is not jammed.
Also on the right hand side there is a paper pick- up roller, clean it with a cloth with some alcohol. See page 4-13 for the location of paper feed pick-up roller. page 5-27 shows the paper empty sensor flag

Here is the service manual:

My printer keeps saying im out of paper but there is paper in it.


The printer can't pick up the paper for some reason. You can try taking the paper out and putting it in the tray (straighten the stack and adjust it closer to the pickup rollers). Check the manual (hp.com support should have the PDF format) for a procedure to clean the pickup rollers. Depending on the age of your printer, replacement parts may be in order.

Hp 4345 printer that is picking up multiple sheets from tray2
