Re: Keeps telling me to put paper in tray-tray is full
It sounds like it has lost how to detect the paper tray, this could be possibly the paper tray itself or the configuration on the machine its self, look on the tray and see if it has a paper configuration slide or a magnet on the side or front that is missing, or you will need to go into the menu configuration and choose the paper tray.

First what model? Second miss feed and jam are different, miss feed the roller can grab the paper, replace the roller putting a rubber sleave is going to mess with the feed system. Clean the rollers with alcohol
Does the paper exit the paper tray? If not, the half-moon shaped feed rollers may be slippery. Turn the copier on its back side to see the rollers. Usually they are facing upwards and the rubber side is unreachable. Turn the copier back to its original position.
1. Press the copy button. When the copier starts feeding paper take the power cord off-QUICKLY. If you are quick enough the rollers remain at down position and you can clean them with some kind of rubber cleaning liquid or solvent. Perhaps alcohol, but it tends to dry out the rubber surface.
Having owned a copy center I can tell you most copiers will not take glossy stock. It's too slick. Worse yet - the (clay) coating on the glossy paper will transfer to the rollers and cause the pinch rollers to get slick then they will not be able to work properly on any paper.
You will need to first clean the rollers with a damp cloth or isopropyl alcohol. If you still want to use a glossy stock you'll need to use a special stock made for copiers. Go to a specialty paper store (or call JC Paper, Xpedex, etc.). You probably won't find this paper in a retail office supply store. Good luck.
Open the front panel and make sure that the rollers are secure. You may need to take out the rollers and clean them to make sure that they are getting enough traction. Also, add paper to the paper tray til it is full and push the papers in the tray all the way to the end. Make sure the clamps that keep the paper lined up are lined up properly as well. One last resort is to do a power down and power up. If none of these things work, then you may need a new roller.
Depending on the type of machine, it is probably just dirty rollers that pick up your paper (slipping). If you remove the tray, and look inside you should see some rollers (usually gray) that take the paper from the tray. Use a cloth dampened with some alcohol(if you have it) or simply water to clean these rollers (gently).. dry if you have used water, the top sheet or 2 of previously used paper, and try it.
