Check input paper feeder at top too - easy to miss. Top flips open with a firm (but not excessive) pull, so you can look there.
If you are sure you've opened and looked under every available panel on the printer (there are many!), turn it off and unplug for half a minute. Make sure all panels are back properly in place, but leave out the paper tray (and no paper either in the rear input paper feeder).
Plug in and turn on. Wait for it to finish its start-up sequence - it should complain about no paper.
Check the paper is flat and straight in the paper tray, and no excess room between paper and guides, and put it in again.
Either you have selected the wrong feeder, it can feed from the back or the front tray, the little green light shows which tray is selected. If you have paper in both, the feed roller may need cleaning since it gives that error if paper doesn't get picked up.
Does your printer have a paper tray on the bottom as well? If so there's a feed switch that tells your machine to use the tray or the rear feeder. There's also a small printer picture with a light that either is lit for the top or bottom feeder. To be safe, put paper in both trays.
if you are gettiing a 201 error without any paper in the printer you will need change the main motor drive if it fails to initialize this is the error that will show up and there is no other way to reset it
Depending on which large capacity feeder you have.
If you have the one that is on the bottom of the machine, make sure there is a gap between the paper in the front and rear of the paper tray, There is a black plastic guide in the middle of the tray that may be being caught by the paper.
If you have the large capacity feeder on the right side of the machine then most likely the black actuator that tells the machine the tray is full has broken or the sensor is bad,
There is a button I believe just above the USB port on the front of the machine. The picture is of a printer and there are two areas that will lit up. If the light is on the bar that is in the vertical direction, this indicates you are using the top feeder. If the bar is lit that is horizontal you are using the paper tray feeder. The Default is normally on the top feeder. Most people do not even realize there is a paper tray on these machines. They are hidden well. To change tray settings simply push the gray button found under the picture of the printer with the vertical and hrizontal bars usually lit in green!
One of two things, There is a black plastic actuator that may have fallen off. It hangs down into the paper tray and is pushed up when the paper tray is pushed in. Remove the paper tray and see if you can locate the actuator.
The more likely problem is the sensor in the paper feeder, I don't believe that sensor is a spared item, I have always replaced the paper feeder to resolve that problem.
there is a button to press to swap it from the back tray and the bottom tray. it sounds like you might have some thing stuck in the rear feeder causing the paper not to go through. i would try it from the bottom feeder and see if it works,
might be worth turning the machine off and unplug it and then try turning it upside down and shaking the machine, to see if anything come out of it.
If not i would say to take it apart or call a service engineer out.
