    I have also had zero use out of the HP845c. Stopped using it because it wouldnt grab paper at all. I want to clean the rollers but how does one get them to turn while lid is lifted?

    Now need to use it so took cartridges out and siphoned out the ink there was. Refilled with fresh ink, stood them in warm water, wiped gently then stood on paper to dry.

    Still doesnt grab paper so cant do alignment check or print cleaning page. So don't know if ink is OK

    I have always used HP printers but this one seems a dud. Any suggestions as I can't afford to replace it now, although I will get new cartridges.

Unfortunately blank pages on this model 99.999999% of the time are because of the ink cartridges. Whether they are empty or just dried out. Try taking the cartridges out and pressing the bottom of some paper towel. For the black you should see 2 unbroken black lines about 3/4inch long and for the colour you should see 3 lines (Blue, Red and Yellow) about 1/3inch long. If not then your ink is not flowing (quite likely). You can try and get the cartridges going again with various head cleaning methods or just replace them.
