Angry rh9 says media tray empty for officejet g85

I installed rh9, connected to my hp officejet g85, rh9 saw it, and I went through the install new printer deal. But when I tried to print a test page, nothing happened.
So, I installed hpijs. Now when I try to print a test page I get a "media tray empty" message in the print queue.

The g85 works fine with mandrake 9.1 (which I hate).

Any help?

Later...... Will

FWIW, I had this happen to me the other day (running Slack Current, and an HP 920c). I fixed the problem by reinstalling GTK, but in the process of hunting the problem down, I found out that many HP printers give this message no matter what state they are in. Once I renstalled GTK all worked well. I am not sure why I decided to reinstall GTK, but it did do the trick for me.
