HP C8180 Photo Paper Jam


all of a sudden i cannot print photos on photo paper on my HP C8180.

i can print regular A4 no problems, but everytime i print a photo it jams. the paper feeds to the roller, but the roller does not feed it through to the printer head. This is happening on all the time now (have tried over 10 times) yet regular a4 printing is fine. I've checked for loose paper stuck, but there is nothing there. any ideas all?
1 Solution
buy printer oil and oil up the rollers might fix the issue

Have you got a different stock of photo paper you can try?

i will try that, guess it could be a problem with 1 roller as the photo paper is obviously smaller than a A4. I tried to manually roll it and it works without a problem. i'll give it a go and see what happens.

yup, i tried another stock of photo paper and infact just printed on a full a4 photo paper without any problems.

i've not changed photo paper either so its very bizarre
