Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The paper
sensor may need to be cleaned – they sometimes accumulate paper fibers,
and need to be blown out with canned air to be able to recognize the paper tray status properly. the only other cause I am aware of would be if the paper is not loaded properly.

    Check out the printer properties. Are you trying to print from the correct paper tray?

    If so, remove the paper tray(s) and try cleaning with a can of compressed air as mentioned above.
