The paper feed on my Photosmart C4680 printer doesn't work

Hi,

 

I have tried resetting my printer, yet the paper feed still pulls the paper in on an angle and then jams.  This seems to have started all of a sudden.

Hi JeaniT,

 

If you have the paper guides adjusted against the paper and you have cleaned the feed tires there is a good chance there is a small piece of paper stuck in the paper path causing the paper to be pulled in at an angle. You may have to tilt the printer up to look into the paper path.

Thank you so much!  I lifted up my printer as you suggested and the plastic piece in the back dropped off.  I snapped it back into place and lined up the paper as you said and all is good!  Again thank you! :)

Step one: Clean the rollers in the rear of the product
  1. Press the Power button ( ) to turn off the product.

  5. Press the cloth against the rollers and rotate them upward with your fingers. Apply a moderate amount of pressure to remove dust or dirt buildup.

Hi, I have cleaned the roller and the paper was fed into the printer.  However, "Now printing Alignment Page" is being displayed but nothing is printing. The paper is set up to print but it is not printing
