The problem could be a number of things.
1st the lift up motor for the tray could be broken
2nd the sensor at the back could be broken therfore not telling the machine to lift the paper into posn.
If inno73 suggestion doesn't fix it i'm afraid you well have to call a tech as it will probably need parts.

Could be that the tray has not lifted the paper into position or something is blocking the sensor. Take the tray out of the machine and look way in the back to see if there is perhaps a piece of paper back there crumpled up and blocking a sensor. Cycle the power (off and on with both power switches) after doing this and see if that clears it.
