There could be something in the paper feeder that's blocking the paper path. Please follow steps below to identify and fix the problem:

1. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder.

2. Grab a flashlight and look inside for any debris.

3. If you're willing and physically able, you may also turn the printer over. Any debris should just freely roll out from the feeder.

4. If feeder is clear, place the printer back on the table, open the printer cover and remove the cartridges.

5. Check the cartridge area for any obstructions/debris that could cause this error or problem.

6. If cartridge area is clear, close the cover.

7. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power outlet to reset it.

8. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and load some paper. Try to print again.

You simply need to find a way to clean the inside of the printer, especially the rollers of dust. I will explain.

This is sort of scenario is usually caused by dust inside the printer. Dust has a way of preventing the sensors from detecting paper. Also it prevents the rollers from having a firm grip on the paper while picking paper. Sometime one side grips well and tries to pick the paper while the other doesn't resulting in a jammed. I will suggest you get a long handle brush and try to reach as far inside the printer as possible and brush (from the back and front). If you have a blower you may also use it to blow well into the interior of the printer (If you do not have a blower the brushing will still do if you do it well.) This, if properly done should do it. Brush especially the rollers etc.

It needs a thorough cleaning inside, and a lube job as all of the lubrication has dried up. Call around but this type of a maintenance is usually about $25.00. J.

You should have settings for "draft", "normal" and photograph.
Try the other settings and review the changes. If the "photo" setting does not give good color, then the cartridge is clogged or bad. I have set the cartridge in a coffee saucer of about 1/4 of water for a minute, then LIGHTLY wiped with a tissue - and it worked fine after that. Good luck
