Paper jam in tray 2 (but no paper pulled from tray) also M476DN models
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!
Tray 1 (upper tray) paper feed problem
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.
HP Laserjet 2200, Tray 2 Pickup Problem, Gears Clicking
Definitely not a solenoid problem. I’ve worked on tens of thousands of printers and never replaced a single solenoid. You probably knocked something loose when you installed the pickup roller. Maybe something to do with the gear on the end of the pickup roller shaft. You’ll need to take the gear assembly off to be able to see it.
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.
HP Laserjet 6MP wont feed paper
I had a similar paper pickup problem on laserjet 6mp. The printer would go through start-up sequence fine but when it received a print job you could here the main gears/rollers turning but no clicking from paper pickup solenoid, then eventually error lights would come one . I incorrectly assumed it was an error with the paper pickup mechanism and wasted a whole day taking the printer apart and replacing the paper pick mechanism. Long story short, if I had bothered to figure out the secondary error light codes from the start, I would have realized it was just a bad fuser and would not have wasted so much time.
hp 8600 pro when power on, paper jam message appear but there is no paper jam in the tray
Hp 8180 Photosmart All In One code keeps says paper jam and carriage jam when neither are jammed. I followed all the recommended things to do. I live in Raleigh NC any place to take this or any suggestion.
Paper tray 3
What usually happens in this instance is that the access flap to the left of the pickup roller pops up. This blocks the tray from opening. The only way to fix it is to look in from the back of the tray with a flashlight and get something thin and long, maybe a wooden ruler? Reach in and push down on the flap until it locks in place. If you’re not sure what I’m referring to, you can pull out and look at tray 2 for guidance.
