Won't print...sends a message that the papaer is out

Had exactly the same problem. The solution was a piece of scotch tape. Open the small paper tray, and position the paper guide (the rear one, not the side one) so that you can put your paper stack down with a little bit of looseness, then tape it down so it can't slide back and forth anymore. Now put the paper back in. This worked like a charm for me. Turns out the rear guide was a little too loose so that everytime the paper tray got sucked in, it would push the whole paper stack backward and then the rollers couldn't find the top sheet to feed into the printer.

I am unable to print photographs on my D7260 HP Photosmart Printer bacause the blank photo papers are not being drawn into the machine

Have you loaded them face down? I have a 7360 and they are pretty fussy about what they will take and what they won't and how. The paper must be put in the upper drawer (if it is 6x4 paper), with the glossy side down and the drawer must be pushed right in.

I am unable to print photos usingthe HP Photo Papers

Does it print on normal paper ?

If it does is then you need to look at the material you are trying to feed, there a limit on what thickness of material your printer will happily accept

Media comes in all different thicknesses and forms (We make the stuff) and some printers will struggle to feed 200gsm photo glossy etc

You could try cleaning the infeed rollers with an alcohol based cleaner to improve their grip.

Even Gin or Vodka will suffice as they both clean and evaporate quickly

Photosmart D7260 does not sense Paper in maintray

I had the same problem. I hadn't used the printer in a long time and it took a few minutes to figure out what I did. This may not be your problem, but there are two sliders on the main tray. The first goes left to right and the second goes front to back. If you've use normal 4x6 paper you put the paper in and push the slider forward to lock in the paper so it prints straight. The problem is if you run out of paper and haven't used the printer in a long time, you may try to slide the paper in just like you would a normal printer. But for it to work, you have to pull the front-to-back slider back, and make sure the paper is forward of that slider. If you've pushed it way forward after trying to shove your paper in, you may have to find something to pull it back out again, because your fingers might not be able to get in that far.
