Printer has stopped picking up paper from the lower tray. The feeder "foot" comes down but goes back up without pushing paper forward. I may have caused the problem while feeding an envelope and pulling back on a sheet of paper that was also being fed at the same time.
Is this user serviceable?
Out of warranty..any suggestions for Reasonable Repair.. in San Diego, CA ??

Is there a way to check if the gears have been ruined? I have been having a paper feed issue (the top set of gears are moving furiously, but bottom set of gears on paper feed barely moving (can only print by shoving paper in myself). Any fix for this or need a new printer? Thanks

The only way to tell if the gears are stripped is to look at them and see if they are smoothed over. It's not easy to get a good view of them, if you can see them at all, and there is no way to repair them if they are stripped.

I changed paper to different kind of white printer paper (seemed a little heavier) and the rollers will not pull it into the printer
Tried old paper and will not pull that through now also.
I get HP message that printer is out of paper.
This machine is about 5 years old with light usage.
