Failed Pick Up

I have a Panaxonice FL501 plain paper fax.  lately it says "failed pick up".  I have noticed that the paper pick up doesn't always turn around.  I can mess around with it for awhile and then it will go.  My husband has tried lubricating the wheel - it seemed to work a little but I continually miss faxes because of this.  Any suggessions?
