Hi, I can help with the issue.

Expert:  WesPCDr replied 7 months ago.

Sometimes the paper pickup rollers become dirty and need to be cleaned.

Check first to see if you have paper installed in the printer. Then remove all paper and look in that area for rollers that can be cleaned.

Use a paper towel and water to clean it. Then re-insert all paper and try to print.

Apolgies for delay in my reply but I have been out of action for a few days. I've taken your advice but this doesn't solve the problem. Any other ideas?
