Technician: Robert M., Consultant replied 5 months ago

if there is paper in there and you continue to get that error trying to print one particular job it is usually because that job is set to use a paper type or size that is not in the printer or a specific tray such as manual feed or multi purpose tray that does not have paper in it or needs to be manually fed

if there is a manual feed slot you might try putting a piece of paper in there to see if it will happily print from there.

or

cancel the job and check all of the settings when you resubmit it.

make sure it is set to use plain letter paper from the standard tray.
