Re: HP 1018 PRINTER
This is a great old printer, and it sounds like you have paper feed problems. Firstly I suggest you go to ebay, and find one of the repair manual CDs for hp printers. They are very cheap and cover all of those older printers. Then Google for: exit feed roller assembly for your machine. They are really easy to install when you have the cd, it shows you exactly which clips and screws to take out and how to remover and replace the assembly. There is also a great trouble shooting section, I have three of these old machines and they are just great, and comparatively easy to maintain with these repair maual cds.

1. Turn off the printer.
2. Unplug the data cable going into the printer.
3. Remove the offending print job from the computer.
4. Remove any jammed paper as a result of Step 1.
5. Turn the printer back on.
Run a "half test".
Put paper in the manual feed tray.
Print anything. Watch the paper, when it feeds about 1/2 way into the printer, open the cover.
Pull out the toner and look down at the paper.
If it has the dots, replace the toner. If it doesn't have dots, the fuser is probably bad.

Make sure you have 8.5" x 11" paper loaded into at least one of the paper trays, and make sure it's loaded in the same orientation as the page you are trying to print. Also check to be sure the copier is set to recognize 8.5" x 11" paper -- it may be set for a different size. On the main Copy screen, if you select the paper tray, does it show 8.5" x 11"?
I seems like you have snaped the pin is broke. if you open the printer on the right hand side there is a little hole with leaver in shove some folded paper in it and close top. the leaver has to be pushed down for the printer to work. if the leaver is not down it will print blank pages.
just try to print the self test of the hp 1018 printer.self pest is printed directly from the printer not by giving command from the printer.
press any one of the button on the printer and hold it till the light blinks.leave the button when light starts blinking .place the paper in the tray.as soon as you leave the button .a self page will be printed..that is self test.if the self test comes out proper that means its your driver software problem.but if self test also has problem then its the clear problem of dust collected on the printer reading lens due to not using it for 2 years.so the printer needs servicing.
get it serviced at local printer repair shop .
Check carefully for any small scraps of paper caught in the paper path. Do a 1/2 way test, do a print job, listen for the paper to get just under the toner then quickly open the front of the printer (may take a few tries) see if the paper is folded there or if it's happening later that way. If it is folded before entering the fuser, you probably have a small piece of paper in the paper chute somewhere. If it's not and folds later, the fuser is probably worn badly.
the manual tray is the is the one above the tray,
1-either your tray is set incorrectly must be set to Letter/Plain
priority is tray 2 not tray 1
tray one is the by-pass / manual
since this printer does not have a screen on it everything is setup through the PC.
print a configuration page and you will see all the settings
