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.
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.

Re: HP Photosmart 8050 printer won't load paper.
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

In this Case take out the Paper from the Paper Feed Tray........ Unplug the Power Supply from the Printer.......... Remove both the Cartridges from the Printer.......... Now take a size 10 Envelope fold it so that it should become like a thin long strip........ Now Insert that Envelope on the left side corner of the Printer and move it from right to left and left to right as fast as u can for about 10 times.......... Now Insert the Ordinary Papers onto the Printer and insert both the catridges and Turn on the Printer......
If you haven`t used the printer in 2-3 months the black ink cartridge has gona dry.Wich means the printer is seeing full ink but the ink isn`t actually coming out from the ink head.Take a peace of clean cloth or cotton and clear the bottom part of the ink head(be verry carfully while cleaning it cuz you may dmg the head.If that doesn`t help just go and buy a new ink cartridge and it will solve your problem.
There will be something in there, whether it is toner/ink over a sensor, a paperclip/staple, or a tiny scrap of paper. The trick with this one is patience, methodically strip it down as far as you can, checking as you go for stuck material, and once you have gone as far as you can put it back together nice and slowly, looking for broken connections and loose bits, then try it again.
If there is nothing in there then the printer has something broken and needs looking at by a technician, in this case you should turn to your warrenty.
If there is No Paper and still the Message is there, more likely, the sensor has gone bad and needs replacement.
If under Warranty, get it replaced without any Charge unless Hp would charge you more than half the amount to get this Fixed. Still not a Bad idea to call and have a Quote and if the amount is too high, do not shy of asking for exchange in lieu of this. They could Offer you a Nice Discount as Christmas is already here :)
Note - Also Try to remove the Cartridges and again Re-Seated them Properly.
