How to Identify and Fix Common Problems ?

Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced technical support :

The common reasons for this issue are various, for instance, the paper input tray is overloaded, dust or moisture can affect the paper feed or paper pick rollers, the printer driver is old, etc. Thus, the printer cannot detect the paper that has been inserted into the tray.
Dust, paper fiber, and other debris might accumulate on the pick rollers and cause paper feed issues. To help prevent paper feed issues, clean the rollers inside the printer and in the duplexer (if equipped).
A “Load Paper” intervention message appears on the printer display even when there is paper loaded in the tray. This error message means the printer is not detecting any paper on the tray. The same intervention message will appear when: The tray is empty.
Paper that is loaded incorrectly in the input tray might prevent the tray from closing completely. Remove any paper from the input tray, and then reload the paper correctly before closing the input tray. Grasp the handle on the input tray, and then pull the tray toward you to open it.
Paper Overloading

Because many desktop inkjet printers are top-loading, it can be easy to overload the tray.

To remove all data from your phone, you can reset your phone to factory settings. Factory resets are also called “formatting” or “hard resets.”
The Load Tray 1, Tray 1 Missing, or Insert Tray 1 error messages indicate that the printer has failed to detect the tray. The Tray Low or Tray Empty errors indicate that one or more of the tray sources are empty or low. These error messages also show which tray is missing, low, or empty.
Solution. Open the tray for more than one second, verify that paper is loaded, and then close the tray. This should eliminate the “Tray Empty” message so the printer can resume printing.
The message “[TRAY] Empty” appears when there is no paper in the indicated paper tray and thus the device cannot start printing. Load paper in the indicated paper tray.

HP Laserjet 2200, Tray 2 Pickup Problem, Gears Clicking
ANSWER : 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.

Paper jam in tray 2 (but no paper pulled from tray) also M476DN models
ANSWER : 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.

Tray 1 (upper tray) paper feed problem
ANSWER : 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.
