LASERJET P2015-PROBLEMS WITH PAPER FEED

10-11  Source: Network gathering  Views:0 

Advertisement
We have a HP LaserJet P2015 in the office.  When the paper reaches the halfway point, the printer makes a horrible sound and will not feed the paper.  Anybody have any suggestion?
So, I cranked up my old PowerBook G4 (OS 10.4.11) which has the older driver for the P2015dn and the problem remains.
I have made some progress: If I want to print with paper feed from Tray 1, I pull Tray 2 out a few inches, load the paper in Tray 1, start the print job, and the yellow Attention LED flashes indicating an error. Note that the Paper Out light does NOT come on. So I press the Go button, the Attention LED goes out, and the print job completes using the forms in Tray 1 as desired.
So I'm thinking now, What Error condition? and why does clearing it make it print?
Certainly seems like a hardware problem to me as this is NOT the way the printer is supposed to work as documenetd in the User Guide.
