Problem with HP Photosmart C4795 Printer

[ Edited ]

I'm having difficulties with getting my C4795 to print.  The feed rollers are operating more than usual.  Whenever I turn the printer on it feeds the paper without any job being initiated.  When I try to start a print job oftentimes the printer will feed the paper either halfway or completely without printing at all.  The only one I've been print at all is to individually feed a single paper at the right moment when the feed rollers are operating.


My HP software is up-to-date and I've no new Windows updates.  I've unstalled and reinstalled my HP printer software.  I've ran the HP diagnostic printer utility and it reported no problems.  I have this problem no matter whether I connect to the printer via USB cable or wireless.  


Does anyone have suggestions or solutions for fixing to this problem?

Paper feed problems are a hardware issue, if none of these steps help I would recommend contacting HP for upgrade options. I have included a link with directions for contacting HP:

My printer chops off the text on the right side of printed page. It WILL print the text on right side when size of print is too small to read.
