Sometimes paper can get stuck behind the tray and get stuck in the sensors and arms that detect paper size and detection. You can remove the tray completely from the machine and look at the feed unit and rollers and make sure there is no obstruction or paper stuck.
A piece of paper stuck in the paper tray or inside the printer can create a paper jam. Paper jams can occur for a variety of reasons, such as overloading the paper tray, loading different thicknesses of paper in the tray, or using paper that isn`t appropriate for your particular printer.
Frequent paper jams most often result from improper use. Make sure to load the paper correctly and use the right paper size as well as the correct toner or ink cartridges for your printer.
Step one: Perform a power reset
With the product turned on, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the product. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet. Wait at least 15 seconds. Plug the power cord back into the wall outlet.
A paper jam is when paper or other printed material gets stuck or lodged in a printer and cannot eject.

Isopropyl alcohol is not recommended for rubber rollers. It dries out the rubber and hasten it’s cracking and breaking. It will do nothing to restore the grip. Those rollers are really hard to replace. It would be easy if that dumbass secondary menu really worked. None of the techs I’ve spoke to ever got into it. Everyone I know sends a print job and listens for the roller to rotate into position where you can pull it off.

Seriously, dmzcompute, you are awesome! And this is just what the internet does so well: a specific fix for an esoteric problem, thus keeping a 15 year old machine alive another day. Thank you!
My printer feeds through one piece of paper all the way and then a half piece of paper and stops. I pull out the paper to stop the paper jam and then it prints but sounds rough. After printing, it doesn't feed the paper all the way through.
And the first 2 sheets, the full and half sheet that go through first, are blank.
Paper Jam error but no paper jam
Obviously you didn’t get all the paper cleared out. There is a small scrap in the paper path causing the jam when the paper hits it. You can try clearing it out by inserting something stiff like a piece of file folder from the back of the printer into the paper path and pushing the offending piece out that way.

There is no way of adjusting the distance of lift. Could be that the pickup roller is worn enough that it will pick up a sheet that is higher, but not one that is lower down. You can look at the end of the roller that first makes contact and see if it is worn smooth.
Paper tray jammed
Check from the back of printer to see if some paper lodged at top of tray and has jammed it up – you may be able to work it out from the back side. If not you may have to partially disassemble the printer and/or tray to get the tray out.
