I have a very old Laserjet 2200 which is failing to pick up paper from Tray 2. The motors spin and it sounds like it is about to pick up and print but then it stops and displays a single flashing red LED (indicating a paper jam).
I can't find any paper jammed in the printer (including the fuser & duplex unit).
When I pull the tray out and use the manual feed, the printer works without any problems.
So far I've replaced the tray pickup roller and given the whole thing a good clean. Can anyone suggest anything else to try?

The roller is turning, and lifting the tray up didn't seem to help either.
Interestingly, if the tray is packed full of paper it prints without any bother. If I take half the paper out, it can't pick anything up. I've tried using a tray from a different (working) 2200 printer but this didn't fix the problem.

I think we're going to throw the towel in on this one and get the printer replaced, its had a good innings :)

Who knows after getting the manual you may decide to take another crack at it.
