I can only suggest searching Ebay and other online sights for used machines or parts. I have this printer and HP has discontinued support long ago!

The problem is a small plastic gear that has slipped off a small steel shaft that runs the paper rollers that pulls the paper into the printer.

Easy to repair!

In order to see the gear, place a small mirror on the shelf that holds printing paper and view the top of the gearing mechanism. If the first gear on top closest to the front has slipped off the steel shaft, you have found the culprit! Simply put a small drop of epoxy of the groves that supports the gear in place and let dry....I just did and it corrected the issue.

To clean inkjet paper feed rollers I take a clean sheet of paper, get it started in the manual sheet feed.

Wet a rag with isopropyl alcohol, quickly wipe a stripe in the center of the page and push page feed.

While the page is being drawn into the rollers, grab the trailing edge and resist the feed.

Not so much as to tear the page, just make the rollers slip on the alcohol.

You'll see a dirty smudge where the rollers got scrubbed.

Repeat this, using a new sheet each time, until no smudge.

I've done this on several printers, and 2 sometimes 3 sheets are all you need.

Do Not do this on a laser printer: the alcohol won't help and may catch fire in the fuser.
