SOURCE: ADF Won't Feed the Paper
If those rollers are turning, and not feeding even after cleaning they simply need replaced. they can get so slick that no ammount of cleaning will help.
Thats what is sounds like.
Like trying to drive a car on ice. No traction.

This is usually do to a sensor, your correct on that, thers usually a plastic piece that indicates theres paper and its broken or worn.
The other thing is that it may be the little rubber grabber is worn and not grabbing the paper, so the printer thinks thers no paper because nothings going through. These parts can be orderd but are usually costly depending on the printer. If its under warranty, take it back.
Also, check the trey and make sure it isnt a I.D.10.T error and you just set the paper to legal or something. I've made that mistake before.

This is a very common problem. Apparently HP changed the roller because of this fault.
I've tried cleaning, I've tried making the roller rough. I tried to get HP to send me a new roller but they didn't even reply.
HP are a rubbish company who don't care at all about customers (and their printer software (bloatware) is even more rubbish).
BUT - the solution I found:
The spring that holds the roller down onto the paper is too weak. I bent the end of a straightened out paper clip into a small hook then made another hook-like bend a bit further up (but kept the rest of the clip to use like a handle). the length between the two hook parts is just under 1/2 inch. Don't cut it yet - buy you will need to when it's in place.
Hold the handle end (the bit at the bottom of this sketch) so you can fiddle about in the small space and don't loose the spring altogether.
Find the spring that fixes onto the roller gadget, it hooks onto the printer body. Hook the spring off the hole in the printer body, and then catch the second (double) hook of the paperclip onto the small printed circuit board just by the roller (most of the board is empty - so hook it to the left end of the board).
Then, when it's all in place cut the rest of the paperclip off.
You can see the double hook part once I'd cut off the "handle" piece in the photo:
and here you can see where the spring used to go, and where it fixes with the clip thingy I made.
Of course this is what I did (when I was about to throw the printer away so it was a last chance survival idea), if you loose the spring, stick it onto something that goes sparky-sparky or otherwise kill the machine or yourself I can't take responsibility!

Might be paper pick up roller warn out, clean or replace it.. For tech guys only: check for separation pad acting while service station performing? if not remove service station check separation pad leaver notch not in proper position in service station, position it. remove total mechanism up to pick up assm.. check pick up roller spring.. tension the spring. fix it back.. verify the print ...

Tips for a great answer:
severe cartridge error related message, on the HP C4600, C4700 or D110a printer
models, I suggest you run the internal Tap 41 diagnostics test which will tell
you the electrical health of the ink cartridge - in many cases the cartridge is
internally electrically damaged and will need to be replaced. In addition, you
can temporarily bypass an 'incompatible cartridge(s) or Missing/Not Detected
error message by performing the Cartridge Error Bypass procedure...refer to two
Youtube videos on how to do this:

These types of severe cartridge
errors (i.e. "refer to documentation" / "incompatible cartridges", etc.)
typically indicate the internal micro-electronics of the HP #60-61 cartridge
are electrically damaged. The cartridge's electrical wire runs at rear and
lower side of the ink cartridge, are very delicate and are somewhat susceptible
to ink attack over time, which can lead to premature failures. In addition, the
older the cartridge the higher the chance of an internal electrical failure due
to prolonged ink exposure and subsequent circuit corrosion. I suggest you
always run a 'Tap 41' diagnostic test to check cartridges electrical health
(this is a forced test); you may also bypass the error (temporarily) on C4600-C4700
models which use HP 60 cartridges. Refer to Inkjet411 youtube videos below:
