Replacing or cleaning the pickup rollers helps increase the life and productivity of your HP LaserJet P3005. The pickup roller is designed to pick up one piece of paper at a time and feed it through the machine to start the print process. If it picks up more than one piece of paper, it will jam the machine. If it doesn't pick up at all, the sensors will detect that paper hasn't reached them in a certain amount of time and also report a jam error.
