I have an hp psc1315v all in one printer.
Lately it keeps saying to "check paper".
I have enough paper loaded in the tray.
Every time I try to print, it tells me the same thing. Any help?

Have you pushed it in far enough to be sucked in? Got the drivers and such for it?

Are you trying to print a document to a paper size you do not have loaded? This is quite typical if you trying to print a document that is legal size, and you have letter size paper inserted, for instance.

Might need a bit of a clean. I'm not sure about that model but if you can get to the rollers easy enough, give them a wipe with a cloth thats been dampened with soapy water. If they're not turning at all then it might be a sensor, even giving it a little bit of a blow should clear any dust from it. Printers are prone to dust because paper is full of it, particularly the cheaper kind as the fibres break down in the packet, if you can get a bendy straw and blow gently around in the paper tray, but only if the rollers arent working.

Also, something i noticed alot, office 2007 likes to revert to try print through onenote, and since onenote doesnt exactly have paper in it or really exist... that may be causing it..
