HP Photosmart 8250 won't pick up paper.

I bought this printer 12/05. It quit working after about 8 months. I never had any problems with it but it suddenly stopped feeding the paper in, whether 8 1/2" x 10" or the photo tray. The bar that grabs the paper is spinning and now squeeks but it doesn't feed the paper and then shows "out of paper." It has trouble with the highest quality photo paper to regular paper.

Others have reported similar problems and have reported postive results from cleaning the rollers - either themselves or with a cleaning kit. Try a search of the forums for 8250 to find details, or perhaps the support and troubleshooting path off of www.hp.com.
