Wont make copies



Welcome to the HP Support Community.


Are you able to scan? 


Let's try to reset the Printer here:


Turn the printer on, if it is not already on.

  1. Wait until the printer is idle and silent before you continue.
  2. With the printer turned on, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer.
  3. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.
  4. Wait at least 60 seconds.
  5. Plug the power cord back into the wall outlet.
  6. NOTE: HP recommends connecting the printer power cord directly to the wall outlet.
  7. Reconnect the power cord to the rear of the printer.
  8. Turn on the printer, if it does not automatically turn on.
  9. Wait until the printer is idle and silent before you proceed.

You can also perform these steps for copy issues:


For paper not being picked up, let's clean the rollers:


Dust, paper fiber, and other debris might accumulate on the paper feed rollers and cause paper jams and paper feed issues. Clean the rollers inside the printer, and then try to print again.

  1. Turn off the printer, and then disconnect the power cord and any other cables.


    You must unplug the power cord to move the carriage by hand and reset the paper feed mechanism without the risk of electrical shock.

  2. Raise the input tray and the input tray extender.

  3. Lift and hold the input tray shield.


    Do not remove the input tray shield. The input tray shield prevents foreign debris from falling into the paper path and causing paper jams.

  4. Look down through the open input tray and find the gray paper pick rollers. You might need a flashlight to illuminate the area.

  5. Lightly dampen the cotton swab with water, and then squeeze any excess liquid from the swab.

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

  7. Release the input tray shield.

  8. Allow the rollers to dry completely (approximately 10 minutes).

  9. Reconnect the power cord and any other cables, and then turn on the printer.

Try to print.
