Unfortunately, my WF-2540 keeps telling me my paper is out

Customer Question

unfortunately, my WF-2540 keeps telling me my paper is out after grabbing a sheet of paper and not printing anything on it
JA: What's the exact make and model of your printer, and can you guesstimate how old it is?
Customer: i can give you the serial number. would that help?
JA: What kind of computer are you printing from (Mac or PC)? What Operating System (OS) are you running?
Customer: Mac 12.12.5
JA: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?
Customer: sorry Mac 10.12.6 and the problem started a few days ago. I went online, people suggested pulling out the power plug waiting about 30 seconds, plugging it back in and that worked for awhile. that isn't working now
JA: Is there anything else the Printer Technician should be aware of?
Customer: not that I can think of
