    Anyone have a clue as to why it will not feed paper when I go to print? Cleaned the rollers. Can put in one sheet manually and it will print but will not feed from the tray.

    Does it fail to pickup the paper from the tray (meaning you hear it try) and do you get an error message or light on the printer?

    I hear it trying to pick up the paper but it doesn't. Message is that it is out of paper, reload and press start.

    The rollers are not smooth. Wiped them down and have plenty of friction.

    I have seen that but I have no idea what as to where to put a paper clip hook or what slot is referred to?

    Does the white piece look out of place? (It's also common in HP printers, too)
    P.S. Scroll down and read the Most Helpful section; he posts a picture.

    No it doesn't. I am stumped.
