HP2840 Paper Jam in Tray 2

I get a paper jam in tray 2 each time I use it. When clearing it, I note the one page has not gone through at all but is stuck at the very beginning of the feed and has a "cut" on the leading edge. Does anyone have any help for this? Suggested parts for replacement?
Paper feed roll and or separation pad are likely suspects

well firstly make sure the paper is in specifications standard a4 80gsm plain

if it is in specs then check the tray guides are set correctly

also check the paper handling settings on the menu

they are accessed via menu-system setup-paper setup-tray 2-tray 2 size/type make sure these are a4 plain

also check the driver settings under control panel-printer/printer & faxes- Right click on the printer- properties-printing preferences-paper/qaulity make sure this is also set to a4 plain

if this is and it continues to jam at the pickup feed then your looking at replacing the Pickup assembly

hope this helps
