Re: won't feed paper
Open the back of the printer and then clean the rollers at the back. After that unplug the power cord at the back of the printer while it is still on. Then try to print after that. If it will still that it is out of paper then the sensor of the printer is already damage. You could either service the printer or replace it with a new one.

If there printer is not able to print on card stock then check the recommend card stock paper thickness, if the printer works with normal paper but not card stock then there is problem in the card stock and by using this paper may also damage the rollers on the printer and make the printer useless ...
Usuall the power light will blink if the paper fails to feed or is out. After putting more paper or straightening the paper out after a miss feeds, you usually have to press the on/off button so the printer will recycle and start printing. Hope this helps. Bud

Just today, our Lexmark 5400 began having paper jam issues. We'd try to print, and the paper would initially feed into the back and then wouldn't go any further. Then it gave printer jam error messages. After peering and poking into various areas of the unit I wound up disconnecting the printer from power, phone line, and USB connection, I took it to a better lit room.
Peering carefully into the back paper feed area, I discovered a pencil!! After excising the pencil, the printer worked fine. One of my precious children must have accidentally dropped a pencil into the back, or a pencil was resting on top of the unit and rolled into the back paper feed area.
Lesson learned, don't put pens or pencils on top of the printer.
