Specs: Windows XP
i have a Hewlett Packard Laser Jet 6P. it was working. there was a paper jam as the paper was going in, not coming out). now the printer makes the sound like it's working, firing up etc, but it can't seem to grab the paper. i've checked and there appears to be no paper stuck inside the machine.

✔ Best Answer
a 6P is a fairly old printer. Your pickup rollers probably need replacing. You might try cleaning them with a damp paper towel.
