Question about HP DeskJet 842c InkJet Printer
My hp 842c printer will not pick up paper. The rear section of the paper tray does not come up when the rear feed rollers turn. I have tried all the remedies I found on the HP site.
Paper lift mechanism is broken. It's uneconomical to have repaired, sorry.
