Try removing the paper and replacing it with a heavier paper > pull out the 20# copy paper and replace it with 24# bond or 60# offset. ( The 24# and 60# are the same weight just different finishes on the surface ). Assuming your paper tray is one that slides in and out, close they tray firmly. Turn the printer off, wait 10 seconds then turn it back on. If the problem is still there, look VERY closely at the edges of the feed tray / compartment. There will be a very thin wire that the paper will depress when it is loaded into the feeder. If that wire gets bent the paper may not reach it to depress it. The printer does not sense any paper if this happens. Bend the wire outward so the paper can depress the sensor switch. Hope this helps.

Hp 1210 paper will not feed


Hi ihimc1, over time dust and paper fibres can cause the rollers to stick, which can result in the paper not feeding please take these steps below to clean the rollers.
Turn off the all-in-one.Unplug the power cord from the back.Remove the rear access door. Clean the rollers one at a time using a clean cloth that is slightly dampened with water. Rotate the roller to clean the entire surface. Verify that the three paper feed rollers on the rear access door are clean and rotate freely.
Reinstall the rear access door and then plug the power cord back in.Turn the all-in-one back on.

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.

Please click on Start >> Programs >> HP >> HP Director.

Click on Settings >> Print Settings >> Printer Settings.

Click on Quality Tab at top of Printer Settings Window >> Set the Paper type as " Plain Paper " .

Click on Layout Tab at top of Printer Settings Window > Set the Paper size that you are using >> Click on Apply and then on OK.

Try Printing, that should resolve the issue that you are experiencing with.

If the issue still persists, try installing alternate drivers by following the below given instructions.

2. Double-click the Add Printer icon. Click Next.
3. When prompted, choose Local, and then click Next.
4. In the Manufacturers list, choose HP.
5. In the Printer list, choose the HP Deskjet 870C printer, and then click Next.
6. Choose the port as parallel port, and then click Next.
7. The printer name should be listed as HP Deskjet 870C Printer.
8. Click No when the "Do you want your Windows based programs to use this printer as your default printer?" message appears. Then click Next.
9. Click No when the "Would you like to print a test page (recommended)" message appears. Then, click Finish.

Configure the alternate printer driver
1. Right-click the HP Deskjet 870C printer icon placed in the Printers window.
2. Select the Properties menu item.
3. Select the Details or Ports tab.
4. Select the DOT4_00x (where the "x" represents any digit) port from the Print to the Following Port list.
NOTE: The All-in-One model number should appear as part of the port destination.
5. Leave the printer identified as HP Deskjet 870C printer, and click the Apply button.

If Deskjet 870c is not listed, you may even try with Deskjet 990c or 550c

Hope that above information will work.
