Question about HP Photosmart 8050 InkJet Printer
Everytime I use the printer I get a message that I need to load paper although there is paper in the feeder. I've been told that it can be either dust in the printer or the rollers need to be replaced. I'm willing to take the printer apart, but only if those are the only possiblities. i just want to know if this is a common problem with this printer.
Hello SuperVicky, rollers on the printer do not go that often on the other hand the usage of the printer is a factor ie how much printing you do or age if old. Normally paper roller should allow you print quite a few thousands before wearing out. what i will advise is to look keenly in the printer shuold in case you have any particules in the paper path of the printer or after paper jam it is possible to have a residue left in the printer. all these can be a problem.

Hi there it doesn't sound like a common problem to me it's not worth repairing it because it'll cost you double what it's worth brand new buy another one inkjet printers are cheap sorry but unfortunately that's the only solution. sourcing parts for printers can be very difficult and expensive too

cause of paper jams is debris/foreign objects that accidentally fell into the
paper feed area. Please follow steps below to fix the problem:
the sheets of paper from the feeder.
2. Grab a
flashlight and look inside the feeder for any debris or foreign objects.
you're willing and physically able, you may also turn the printer over. Any
debris should just freely roll out from the feeder.
feeder is clear, place the printer back on the table, open the printer cover
and remove the cartridges.
the cartridge area for any obstructions/debris in the cartridge carrier's path
or the paper path.
cartridge area is clear, close the cover.
(pull out power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the
back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds).
8. When the
printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and load some paper. Try to print
