My name is***** will try my best to help you with your question.

A paper jam could show up as an out of paper error. Have you checked for paper jams?

If the paper is unable to feed into the printer it will result in an out of paper error.

Check for any blockages - if nothing is visible, try pushing a piece of thin card manually all the way through the paper slot to help clear any blockages. Let me know if that helps?
