this is the error code direct from the service manual. if this nerror is not caused by a paper jam then you may need to replace the paper axis motor.

The error is a paper axis shut down. There may be abnormal friction in the paper motion mechanism. Check for seized needle rollers or anything that would stress the paper motion motor. The problem could be the paper motion motor itself. If you remove the motor, you should be able to turn the motor freely. It is a stepper motor and you will feel the effects of the permanent magnets in the motor and will feel like it has a crunchy bearing. That is normal. If it requires a lot of force to move the motor shaft, replace the motor. If all seems normal, run the PAPER ADVANCE calibration. All this stuff is in the manual which can be downloaded at: www.lpscomputer.com/ec/manuals.htm
