Re: paper rolls up
You have a humidity issue with your paper. Buy or open a fresh **** (sealed) and try printing again. If your paper is stored in a cool place move it to a warmer area. Paper tends to pick up moister over time, especially when cold and will curl when printing. The paper is actually steaming when it hits the fusing (heating) section in the back of the printer. The curl is because one side of the page is drying faster than the other.
If you have a case of paper and open a fresh **** with similar results, buy a new **** and try again. When selecting your paper buy good reliable paper. I recommend "HP Office" branded or better. I say stay with HP Brand paper as it's manufactured to a tight quality standard than most and is a "known good" paper. STAY AWAY FROM STORE BRANDS as they go out on low-cost bids and the quality varies widely on whoever got the contract this time.
As a more positive note, If you use a good paper in your printer, your drum cartridge (expensive) and toner cartridge (not cheap) will actually last much longer. You'll save more (much more) in the long run.
Hope that helps you.

I assume you are printing on roll paper, but printer acts like it is printing on cut sheet paper. When finish the page, it ejects it, but it is not a page, it is a roll and the paper keeps unrolling, right? There have to be a lever that swithes between cut sheet paper and roll paper. Turn it to the oposite direction and the problem should be fixed.
do a test print... see you manual. You hold a button for 3 seonds and it'll print a test page. If that works you should be OK. Make sure that your paper tray is NOT over loaded. Maybe try less paper.
Try the manual feed using one sheet of paper
Sounds like your secratery's printer is set to ignore paper mismatch errors. It depends on the setting you have in your driver. Can you set your driver on your printer to ignore paper mismatch errors. If not when your printer errors, just try hitting the go button and it should print the document any way.
Hello sir;Try to print one page, when the paper process half way then stop the machine, remove the cartridge, check the paper is wrinkling, if yes ,that's meanspaper feed roller dirty or registration roller slipply, ortherwise, check the fusing unit, need to replace presure roller. The 2nd issue, you need to replace paper stop roller or rubber pad.
Managed to solve this myself: I disassembled the printer and noticed there was a paper jammed in the duplex tray. Rolls were all ok, but the paper blocked the use of the duplex pathway. For disassembly help check the HP 1320 service manual, which you can find on the net as a PDF.
Hi, I work on these alot and see the problem quite frequently. It can usually be fixed by 1. either replacing the drum and toner which will eliminate alot of guess work, and if that doesn't fix it then 2 you have a bad fixing unit (AKA fuser). The folded paper makes me think that it's most likey a fuser problem but you can check by opening the rear door and looking for two rollers that are about as thick as two fingers and see if they roll during a test print. Sometimes the gear on the fuser gets broken and while the printer thinks that everything is working okay, it doesn't have a way of sensing the fuser actually rolling. Just as an FYI (and I know this isn't good news) but usually a fuser/fixing unit runs about the same price as the printer itself. So if your printer is on the older side you might want to consider a new one. Good luck.
