It sounds like you are facing the issue with the paper jam in the printer. Sometimes the rollers become dirty and cause the paper to slip. This can cause the paper not to pick up or even cause a paper jam because the sensors do not see the paper pass in a certain amount of time.

To fix the problem, unplug the printer power cable for 10 minutes.
Use tweezers to pull the paper out or the eraser end of a pencil to move the rollers and get to the paper.

Then use a damp paper towel with water or Windex and clean the rollers. Start where the paper touches the printer and look for white, gray, and black rollers. Use your fingers to move the rollers as much as you can to clean them. Open the printer and clean the other rollers you can find as well.

Open each cover front, top, and back of the printer and look for pieces of paper in the rollers. Move the rollers with your fingers to clean and move any loose paper out as well.

Then plug the printer power back in try to print. If that doesn't work or if any other steps is unclear please let me know, So that we can try some other alternate solution. Thank you

There is NO paper in the system. It’s in the tray. Won’t pick it up period. I’m pissed as well because I thought this was a $5 answer to my dilemma. Not $30+. My toddler is on a rampage and I can’t follow through with this at this time because of my toddler. Now the money is gone and we didn’t even have that kind of money to spend. So now what?
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
No. I’m not going to spend more money you fool! I’m calling the bank tomorrow and telling them this is a scam.
