I took mine apart from the back and put it back together and it worked. It is probably due to moving it and the bottom paper tray alignment gets out of whack. I inspected all of the gear train and didn't find any worn or missing teeth. I suspect a paper jam started it and the user turned the printer around to open the back door. Since the handles are on the printer the tray doesn't move with it which allows it to separate and possibly jam a pickup drive gear.

give this a try
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

This error can also be caused by other problems, two of which are as follows.
1) The paper tray has a flap which opens when the MPF (Multi Purpose Feeder) is lowered. If this flap has been pushed out of one of its pivot points due to 'rough' handling of the paper tray, it can cause paper jams, and it can sometime cause the printer to 'think' it has a jam.
Just re-locate the flap properly, and make sure that it does open when you pull the MPF down.
I've seen this happen on a fe of these printers - keep your thumb OFF the flap of the paper tray when you open and close it to reload it with paper.
2) Paper quality can be a cause - seen this happen on this printer when a different paper was used - more likely with a printer that has done a lot of work and the pickup/transport rollers are starting to wear.
Replacement pickup and transport rollers are available quite cheaply on THAT well known internet auction site (and probably elsewhere to)
