Default laserjet 5p printer

Hi
I just got an old laserjet 5p printer. I connected it to my pc, and the pc loaded all the drivers, no problem( seemed to be true plug and play)
when i tried to print, it does some sounds, and then the top orange led goes on, and it does nothing.

there is no error message reported on my computer.

i tried looking at hps website, came up with zilch. please help
