The printer might not pick up paper if the paper size and type in the paper tray do not match the size and type settings in the print driver. Follow these steps to adjust the paper settings to match the paper you are printing on.

Click File, and then click Print. The Print dialog box opens.

Select your printer, and then click Properties.

If the document prints on plain white paper, but not a special paper type, there is no need to continue troubleshooting.

If the document does not print, continue with the next solution.
