HP laserjet 8000 tray 2 not empty

I have a HP laserjet 8000 that after about half of the paper is gone it says tray 2 is empty. Then it also says tray 3 is empty when it is full. I think the little black thing hanging down in there is the paper senser. It is in tack and I can not think of anything else to check to find out what is causing the issue. All of the rollers are all still good if that matters.

I install paper input units all the time for $275 including labor. HP printers are our only business.

I do agree that this sounds like it is indeed a PIU problem.

Do you hear the paper "drop" when you pull out the paper tray. If not, it could be a lift motor

You will have to pull the Paper Input Unit to repair it.

Small items are not available for us to purchase.

If you can't fix, you need a new unit. About $400.00

Says tray empty


Assuming that you have physically checked that there is paper in the tray.
1) Ensure that there is some 'springyness' under the paper. If not, is something sticking?
2) Is the paper tray damaged or not fitted properly?
3) Consider buying a Roller service Kit
4) Consider buying a new Paper tray

Tray 1 doesn't feed while tray 2 has paper, after I empty the paper from tray 2, tray 1 work fine.


if you setup tray 1 any type, any size and tray 2 to plain, and letter size, it will allow you to use tray 2 for your plain letter jobs but will pull from the manual feed tray first only if the paper is in the manual feed tray if this makes any sense to you... please mark this as a fixya...

1-Is the paper set correctly in the tray? if you have Letter paper in it make sure the guides are snug against it

2-Check the lever inside the tray, remove the tray and look at the tires there should be a lever that you ca move freely that is the paper sensor
