HP 850C won't print multipage documents in one go

I have an HP 850 which I've had since 1994 and have been really pleased with (its better than my new Epson!)

anyway just recently its started to refuse to print multipage documents all in one go. The top light (resume button?) blinks between every page so you have to click it to get it to print. once you've done this it prints fine.
no other problems (yet)

Remove the paper tray by squeezing the latch on the bottom. Clean the large rubber feed rollers with water. When the cartridge access door is open the rollers will rotate in opposite directions each time the Resume button is pressed and held. If water solves the problem I suggest using rubber rejuvenator.

Tried that but hasn't made any difference.
The light blinks immediately, before the printer tries to pick up the paper.
