Issue An 'Out of paper' error message displays on the computer and the product does not pick up or feed paper from the main paper tray. Solution Complete the following steps in the order provided to solve this problem. Step one: Reset the product

  1. While the printer is on, remove the power cord from the back of the printer, wait 30 seconds, and then plug the power cord into the back of the printer.
  2. If the printer is not already on, turn it on by pushing the power button.
  3. Try printing again. If the issue is not resolved, continue to the next section.
Step two: Check the condition of the paper and reload it
  1. Replace any ripped, dusty, wrinkled, or bent paper. If the paper is curled, uncurl it by gently bending it in the opposite direction of the curl or replace the paper. NOTE: Use plain paper in the printer until the issue is resolved.
  2. Make sure that all the paper is the same size and type.
  3. Tap the stack of paper on a flat surface to align the edges.
  4. Load 10 to 25 sheets of paper in the paper tray. NOTE: Do not load too much paper in the printer.
  5. Insert the stack of paper in the paper tray, and then gently push the paper guides snugly against the paper.
  6. Make sure that the paper is pushed all the way into the printer. Use the rear paper guide or your finger to push the paper in until you feel a firm resistance. If the paper is not pushed all the way in, the printer will not be able to pick up the paper. If it is pushed in too far, the printer will pick up multiple sheets of paper, which can result in a paper jam.
  7. Try printing again. If the issue is not resolved, continue to the next section.
Step three: Adjust the paper settings in the print driver
  1. Adjust the paper settings in the print driver. The paper settings in the print driver must match the paper settings for at least one of the installed paper trays.
    1. Open a document in the application in which it was created.
    2. Click File .
    3. Click Print .
    4. Click Properties . The Print Properties dialog box appears.
    5. Click the Paper/Quality tab.
    6. In the Size Is drop-down menu, select the paper size that is loaded in the printer.
    7. In the Type Is drop-down menu, select the type of paper loaded in the printer.
    8. Click OK . NOTE: These changes do not change the default print settings in the application. The print setting will revert to the default print settings the next time you open the application.
  2. On the Print dialog box, click OK to print the document.
  3. Try printing again. If the issue is not resolved, continue to next step.
NOTE: If the issue is resolved and you want to print on another type of paper, change the paper in the printer and repeat Step 2 and Step 3 . Step four: Clean the rollers
  1. Turn off the printer and unplug the power cord.
  2. Open the access door to gain access to the rollers. Depending on the model, this is usually the rear access door. Refer to the product User Guide for information on locating the rollers.
  3. Clean the rubber rollers with a lint-free cloth lightly moistened with water. NOTE: Purified or distilled water is recommended for cleaning the rollers.
  4. Close the access door and plug the power cord in.
  5. Try printing again. If the issue is not resolved, continue to the next step.
Step five: Service the product If you have completed all of the steps listed above and are still experiencing a problem, service the product. Cause Any of the following problems may cause the error message to appear:
  • The paper trays are empty or overloaded.
  • The paper is curled.
  • The paper-width guide is pressed against the paper stack too tightly.
  • The paper tray is not completely inserted into the printer.
  • The paper settings in the print driver do not match the paper loaded in the paper tray.
  • The rear rubber paper feed rollers are coated with dust.

Hi artroebridge:
Thsi printer is asking you to load tray 1. You need to check the paper source. Print a configuration page and see what your trays are set for,and also check your print properties for the correct tray configuration (what tray u want to print from)

SOURCE: Printer won't accept Card Stock

Nothing to adjust feed mechanics. If it's temporaly print, you must feeed paper 1 by 1, and when printer grab paper, push paper by hand. If it's routine print, you can adjust the pick up rubber at paper feedr mechanic. Add double tape ( 1 mm, soft) below top rubber. I have done it, and printer can grab/feed paper up to 350 grams.

SOURCE: Epson Stylus 580rx won't identify vellum paper

This did work, but I tried something that worked better. Put the blue painters tape along the edge that you feed into printer. I put 2, one-inch strips along each end. The painters tape easily removes from paper, and there isn't a mess with ink along the folded edge of paper from above solution.

Doesn't print on cardstock

Inkjet should always prints no matter what type of printing material you use since they only spray inks (laser will be different). Even if it is not compatible you will still see inks / smudge all over the surface. Try check your actual colour againts the paper it might be too similar hence not visible.

I am trying to print wedding invitations and a black line prints down the left side of the envelope. I have tried cleaning the printer, but it has not helped. Do you have any suggestions? My printer is...

Black printer ink in HP Printers may fail to be recognized by the printer. Sometimes the printer may accept to print with the black ink, but the printouts may have horizontal lines and very illegible letters. Even though you've run the cleaning utility on the printer, a manual cleaning of the print head should be carried out. In doing the manual cleaning, one should spray Windex heavily on paper towel and wipe off the surface of the print head.

I hope this response helps you out.
I wish you the very best of luck! Congrats on your wedding!!

Paper mismatch

Hi kingwa55,

I have an hp photosmart c4480 and was having the same problem printing wedding invitations. Same size 5.5"x8.5'. Im not sure if this will work on your printer, but this is what I had to do.

Click on Print, then Properties, then features.
About half way down there is a drop down box under sizing options.
Click on custom
Create a name, and put your width and height in.
Click Save and then OK
Completely X out of the print options.
Then Click
File, print, properties,features, click the drop down box under sizing options.
Click more and scroll to the bottom and it should be there.

If your options are different then mine, I'm sorry for wasting your time.
