Either the little rubber tires on the pickup are worn or the gear unit that turns them is not functioning. Remove the paper tray press the white lever on the right in and try to get it to print a test page by pushing the continue button. The arm should come down and the wheels should rotate.

    I tried this but nothing happened. The arm did not come down. Tried it on another printer and nothing happened on it. Is there something that I'm missing?

Printer not picking up paper from paper tray


1). take all the paper out of the paper tray.
2). look at the printer pickup roller while you enable the printer to print a test page.
3). if the roller is not turning, and hear click sound, then you need to take the printer to be service. The gear that runs the pickup roller is broken.
4). if the pickup roller truns, but you still hear the click sound, then most likely the secondary roller gear is broken. You still need to bring it to be repair.

call the repair shop and find out how much it cost and how long, It is cheaper to get a new printer than to have it fixed.

Paper Jamming when trying to copy or print


please check after you load paper on the paper tray and push it into the machine, should hear a click sound, if you don't hear that sound, that means you need to buy a new printer and that's no way to fix.
If you are able to hear a click, then please try to clean up your printer and check all paper loading rolls. if so, please replace it.

Paper jam / Dell 1710n


Do this You want to check the paperpath so first run a test page you will hear the paper pickup if you stick your ear to the paper tray it should pickup paper within 2 clicks any more than that that means you would need to change the bottom roller and the pad on the tray to be safe, to print a job the printer is timed to do this so if your paper is not picking up in time it will jam (also your fuser the part that heats up the toner on the paper it has a time limit to heat up if it's slow or don't heat up at all you will get a paper jam plus if that happens take your finger and run it across the paper if toner on your finger it's you fuser
