My wife pulled the paper tray completely out of the HP 8250 printer and I cannot figure out how to get it back in. It goes part way in and won't go further.

    I have exactly the same problem -- can't get the paper tray to go back into the printer! I'd pulled the tray all the way out in an effort to clear a paper jam (B4 realizing there was a back door for this), and now can't get the main tray to slide back in. There's nothing in the manual about this, and unfortunately Mr. Wong's answer doesn't address the question either. Can anyone help?? (Paying HP for customer support is my LAST resort!) Thanks...

Loading your paper
Paper loading tips:
● Load paper with the side to be printed facing down.
● You can print photos and documents on a wide variety of paper sizes, from
8 x 13 cm (3 x 5 inch) up to 22 x 61 cm (8.5 x 24 inch). The 10 x 15 cm
(4 x 6 inch) photo paper is available with and without tabs.
● Before loading paper, pull the Main paper tray out (use the Main tray release or
the tray grips) and slide out the paper-width and paper-length guides to make
room for the paper. After loading paper, adjust the guides to fit close to the edges
of the paper without bending the paper. When finished loading paper, push the
Main tray back in all the way.
● Load only one type and size of paper at a time in the same tray.
● After loading paper, extend the Output tray extension to catch your printed pages.
Use the directions in the following table to load the most commonly used paper sizes
into the printer.

My hp 8250 constantly does not feed paper. It tells me to load paper when the tray is full. Often times I have to push the paper toward the rollers with my finger to get the paper to catch and have it...


There is a plastic switch that detects paper. You will probably have to disassemble it to get to it. It could be dusty and jammed or broken or stuck. If it's broken, you might check to see how much a local shop will repair it for. Often, it's just better to buy a new one. Good luck.

Daughter left HP Photosmart 8250 idle for a year. Have just put in new ink, but paper will not load. How to service?


unplug the printer from the power and from the computer..
open the back door of the printer and check if both the rollers (inside the printer & on the door) are rolling (upwards)..if not then press & Hold the Power button for 60 seconds when unplugged from the power..
If the rollers still dont move..then u need to service the printer..
if rollers moves..then connect the power cable to the printer and directly to a wall jack (not to a power strip)..
power on the printer and load paper in the main tray..(ensure photo button is not lit up)..
photo button should be lit up in case u want to print photo and the paper is placed in the small phto tray which is exactly above the main tray...
place the paper to the xtreme right in the tray and slide the paper guide from left to right..
then try printing ..

My printer isn't grabbing the photo paper


have you tried with normal paper..does it still do the same

when you load the paper does the roller sit on the paper at all...watch the roller....

but if your machine reports that there is no paper even though the roller is sitting on the paper

turn off your printer//remove the ink cartridge.....get a can of contact cleaner..with the nozzel on..throughy spray the roller area this is where the papper sensor is...

if this still doesnt help you will need to open the printer and check the sensor


keep me posted

Cheers

Out of paper


My wife and I encountered the same problem with our HP 8250 Photosmart Printer. Me being an avid do-it-yourselfer, and a tightwad, searched tirelessly for a solution. HP was totally useless in providing information beyond what is posted on their website; which was all the service technicians would spew forth, both by phone and on-line. I had nearly resolved to buying the $50+ paper feed roller cleaning kit when I decided to look more closley at the machine. After romoving the rear access cover and watching the printer perform it's functions of trying to fruitlessly feed the paper off the paper tray; I noticed that the rollers were in contact with the paper and they were rotating normally, but there was just did not appear to be enough friction to feed the paper forward. The paper was new and was HP brand. I figured why not try and clean the rollers with some generic rubbing alcohol on a long wood handled cotton swab (available at most drug stores). Afterall, the HP site and technicians mentioned "DUSTY" rollers. I turned the machine off, disconnected the USB and power cables, and began cleaning as follows: Simply wet the cotton swab with the alcohol and gently brush/rub the rubber surface of one roller at a time, while rotating the rollers with another cotton swab using the wooden end. After several rotations of both rollers and a half dozen swabs, I replaced the rear access cover and turned the machine back on. My wife and I have printed pictures and documents flawlessly since. Total cost of the do-it-yourself cleaing kit: about $3.00.

I hope this someone else finds this solution helpful and as inexpensive as we did.

Thankx Fixya, for a great web site that pairs problems with solutions.
