Default HP P1505 paper pickup problem.

All of a sudden, our trusty P1505N has started picking up 2 or 3
sheets each time. I'm familiar (from years back) with the paper
separator pad issue on HP 5L lasers, but haven't started a physical
inspection on the 1505. Any pointers?

All printers can suffer from this, especially laser printers. The 5L was not
the only one by any means, they just failed earlier than most others.
This printer allows the easy replacement of the pick up roller and separation
pad,
see http://www.lbrty.com/tech/Manuals_HP/P1500sm.pdf for the service manual.
Pages 16 to 21.
You will need to order the parts.
As a general guide whenever the separation pad is replaced it is sound practice
to replace the pick up roller. The reverse is also true.
The pick up roller will fail to feed properly when it wears, but feeding too
many sheets is always the separation pad.
Good luck
Tony

Thanks Tony. I'll follow that up.

Now if only the 5L (/6L?) separation pads would fit - I have a stack
of those kits sitting here that I can't even give away.

Sorry they are very different. The later printers have improved pads and in
many cases easier to replace.

To be expected :-(

That much I gathered from the manual pages you kindly directed me to.
So much easier to "tip it up and unscrew the pad assembly" than to
completely disembowel a 5L.

HP officially list the sep pad as NLA. No biggie, I cleaned it up
with a few wipes of IPA and it seems to have cured the problem (for
now).

HP might, but there are plenty of supplier, including China (via eBay)

Yes Isopropyl alcohol is a good temporary fix. Another poster has said they are
available on eBay from China. I suspect that means they will be cheap, perhaps
invest in a couple of them including the pickup roller as well.
Good luck

I was that poster; I have bought good quality spares for LaserJet 4
machines from eBay/China.

Yes, quite cheap - and definitely worth it.
