hi Joel,we have tried unplugging many times to no avail.
Technician: Joel Kalman, Engineer replied 1 year ago

Please unplug the printer from the power supply while the printer is on and then press and hold the start button for 30 seconds.

Technician: Joel Kalman, Engineer replied 1 year ago

On this printer, you need to specify the paper type and size. The paper size setting must match the actual size of the paper that is loaded in the paper tray. Have you done that?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
how do u set the paper size? we have not changed paper.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
do we hold the start bottom down while it is unplugged or after we plug it back on?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
we have figured out how to check the paper size and have tested both ways. No luck.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
am correct in assuming that these exchanges are covered under the initial order. Correct?
Technician: Joel Kalman, Engineer replied 1 year ago

Yes, of course, these exchanges are covered. The idea was to hold th start button while it was unplugged to drain any residual charge from the circuits. It probably won't make any difference.

Hi Joel,
We have tried it several times including the paper reset. No luck. Could it be a mechanical problem???neil
Technician: Joel Kalman, Engineer replied 1 year ago

There could be either an electrical or mechanical problem with the paper sensing lever. There is nothing in the Basic User's Guide that covers repairs of this type. I did not find anything on paper reset, and I do not know what you meant by that. Basically, it might be time to buy a new printer.

If you have any other questions or additional problems, please let me know, so that I can provide you with the additional support that you need. My goal is to provide you with the best possible customer service. If you are satisfied with my advice, please take a moment to rate my services.
