It never does when I really need it

It says it is out of paper, but it isn't!!!!!!!!!!

Have you pressed the paper feed button?

Control P print - No help but remembering eddie Izzard may lighten the mood

Thanks for the quick replies
It is a HP deskjet 560C (old) I have pressed the Load/eject paper button, and it loads the paper into the ready to print position, but still says it is out of paper.
There is no paper stuck in it - I've had a look.

Any more ideas?

no lights flashing either.

And now I have just noticed the time - I am going to be late fro picking up ds from school!

Try switching it off completely for a few minutes to clear the print buffers. Remove paper and reload it.

pull all the paper out and put it back in again

printer techsupport forum might help.

turned it off while I picked up ds and still not working. nothing is working
I'll try the forum

I have noticed that if I try to print when the printer is turned off it comes up with the same error message about being out of paper...does this give anyone any ideas?

If you have still got the software disc, it might be worth trying to uninstall/reinstall the printer.

Was the forum no help?

I looked at other posts on the forum and the general consensus seemed to be that it is old age!

We have had this problem before, but it resolved itself. Time for a new printer I think...not that we can afford it at the monet but I have got a lot of work on at college at the moment. Back to writing things by hand I suppose!

And now it is working again...!

I didn't do anything different to it - it just suddenly worked [confused face]!
