Printer does not pick up paper or misfeeds

Follow the troubleshooting steps given below if the printer does not pick up paper from the tray.

  • Carefully remove any jammed sheets of paper and load the tray with the correct size of paper for the job.
  • Check if the paper size and type are set correctly on the printer’s control panel.
  • Ensure that the paper guides in the tray are adjusted correctly according to the size of paper.
  • It is better to check if the arrow on the tray guide, lines up exactly with the marking on the tray.
  • Now, check if the humidity in the room is within specifications.
  • Most reams of paper are generally sold in moisture-proof wrapping. This keeps the paper dry.
  • Paper at the top of the stack in the tray can absorb moisture in a high-humidity environment and it might have a wavy or uneven appearance.
  • Excess static electricity can cause sheets of paper to stick together in low-humidity environments.
  • In the above case, carefully remove the paper from the tray and flex the stack by holding it at each end and bringing the ends up to form a U shape.
  • Now, rotate the ends down. This may reverse the U shape. Carefully straighten the paper stack against a table before placing it to the tray.
  • View the control panel to check if it displays a prompt to feed the paper manually. Insert paper and then continue.
  • There is a possibility that the rollers above the tray may be contaminated. Carefully wipe the rollers with a lint-free cloth dampened with warm water.
  • Check the rollers for any smooth surface either completely around the circumference or just on one side.
  • If there are any smooth areas, make sure that you check the Supplies Status Page to see if the Fuser (Maintenance kit) is low and needs any replacement.

Clear paper jams

Here are the steps to reduce the number of paper jams.

  1. It is advisable to use only paper that meets HP specifications.
  2. Make sure that the paper is not wrinkled, folded or damaged. If required, use paper from a different package.
  3. Make sure that you use paper that is not previously printed or copied on.
  4. Ensure that the tray is not overfilled. If it is, carefully remove the entire stack of paper from the tray and then straighten the stack.
  5. Make sure that you adjust the paper guides in the tray properly as per the size of paper.
  6. Adjust the guides in such a way that they touch the paper stack without bending it.
  7. Ensure that the tray is fully inserted into the printer.
  8. Use the manual feed feature and feed sheets one at a time if you are printing on heavy, embossed, or perforated paper.
  9. Go to the Trays menu on the control panel and then check if the tray is configured correctly for the paper type and size.
  10. Ensure that the printing environment is within recommended specifications.
  11. When you notice a 13.A 2000-sheet tray paper jam, open the tray.
  12. Discard any jammed or damaged sheets of paper from the tray.
  13. Carefully press the release latch on the side of the tray to release it.
  14. Now, lift the tray up and then pull it straight out to remove it.
  15. If there is any jammed paper in the feed area, pull it down to remove it. Carefully pull the paper to the left to release it and then pull it forward to remove it.
  16. Now, insert the tray, then load full reams of paper into the tray and then close the tray.
  17. Open the lower-right door, then discard any jammed paper and then close the lower-right door.
  18. Now, if the panel still displays a message that there is no paper in the tray or the tray is overfilled, remove the tray and then check for any remaining paper behind it.

  3. Carefully hold the underside of Tray 1 and then pull out the tray. Discard any paper from the input tray and then observe the condition of the paper.
  4. Make sure that you do not use ant ripped, curled, wrinkled, or bent paper. Do not print on paper that is dusty.
  5. Ensure that the paper in the stack are of the same size and type.
  6. Insert plain white paper in the input tray with the print side down and the short edge forward.
  7. Make sure that you do not fill the paper above the yellow, dotted lines on the sides of the paper tray.
  8. Now, check for obstructions inside the input tray and ensure that nothing blocks the paper from engaging with the rollers.
  9. Print a Status Report to check if the printer functions properly.
  10. Note that the printer may not pick up paper if the paper size and type in the paper tray do not match the size and type settings in the print driver.
  11. Make sure that you choose your Operating System for steps to change the paper size and type settings.
  12. In case you find obstructions inside the input tray or photo tray, clean the paper feed and pick rollers with a clean, lint-free cloth.
