Visually inspect the pick tires (or feed rollers) of the paper pick assembly to if they are worn, contaminated or pulled off the hubs (tire/hub orientation is critical). If the pick tires are worn out or contaminated, find the T-shaped pick arm assembly and carefully remove each of the two rubber pick tires. See image below.

Note: If you have extra set of pick tires, please use them to replace the old ones. In case you don’t have any extra pick tires, try reseating the tires or clean them with alcohol wipes to remove any contamination.
4 If the paper in the printer shows signs of excessive wrinkle, crease, or dampness, or if the sheets are bent or wavy, or have ream glue or curl, there is probably too much moisture in the paper. Replace the paper in the printer with new paper from an unopened ream. 5 The printer should rest on a surface that is flat, level, and uniform. This is for safety reasons as well as for paper feed reliability. 6 If issue persists after performing the steps mentioned above, an issue may exist within the machine's hardware.
