Here is the solution for your problem just go through the steps given below and you can fix it yourself.

1. Check to make sure your printer has paper in its paper tray. If your printer has paper, check to make sure that the tray is not overloaded. If you suspect your paper tray is overloaded, remove some paper from the tray and attempt to print again.

2. Use the same type of paper when stocking the tray with paper; do not mix different types of paper into a single stack. Mixing different brands and weights of paper in a single stack makes your printer more prone to paper feed problems. If you find that one particular type of paper causes consistent feed problems, switching to a different type or weight of paper may solve the problem.

3. Check to make sure the paper in the tray is whole. Torn and creased paper will cause problems with the printer.

4. Open your printer's rear access cover and inspect the paper feed rollers. Dusty or dirty rollers cannot grip the paper; clean them with a soft, damp cloth and water.

5. Count your printer's rollers. HP printers have six paper feed rollers; if your printer is missing rollers the paper will not feed correctly. Contact HP to replace the rollers and repair your printer.

Thanks.

WON'T FEED PAPER FROM TRAY


I have found in the past that these printers can have two things that cause them not to feed paper.

1. There is possibly small pieces of paper stuck in the paper feed mechanism. I would check inside the paper try and the rollers to make sure there is no paper stuck in there.

2. A lot of printers have problems with the rollers that feed paper going bad. Many times you can contact HP and they can replace them. Depending on the age of the printer it may cost something.

My brand new hp laser 1005 says out of paper and wont feed any of the paper through?


HP LASERJET P1005
PROBLEM: it was out of paper, new paper was installed, but printer wouldn't feed or print

SOLUTION: Lift the top cover of the LaserJet (where the printed paper would come out) and close it again. This resets the printer. Now the printer should feed and print again.

Manual Paper Feed on HP 5MP fails


Sounds like a feed roll problem.
The is a big feed roll the picks the paper and feeds it in. Clean this feedroll with achohol and rub fairly hard.
I think you can reach the feedroll when you open the unit up.

Wont grip paper on feed, keeps 'saying' paperjam


I have had this problem after printing a large batch of sheets on a heavy matte photo paper. The roller picks up a 'polish' from the surface coating and then fails to grip. I have tried cleaning the roller, with some sucess, but the best solution I have found is to feed through several blank sheets (just page throws in a Word document) of a ordinary 80 gram paper. Doing this between smaller batches of the photo printing seems to keep things flowing.

HP printer will not feed paper through the rollers


Pick up some Print Roller Cleaner spray, and carefully spray your rollers. As time goes on, fibres from the paper embed in the rollers, which reduce their efficiency to pickup and feed paper. Spray all the rollers and set it dry. You should find that your printer feeds paper. If not, you need a new roller set, available from the HP Spares, or a good local HP Dealer.
