There is a sensor relay arm under the body of the printer in the hole created by removing the paper tray.
Look for a long thin peice attached to a spring assembly.
There is a wire that plugs in to the relay it may be loose.

You might also remove the paper, push the metal peice of the paper tray into a locked postion and then replace your paper

My Lexmark E250dn laser printer is not picking up the paper to print. It sounds like it's trying then it jams up.

I had the same problem on my E250dn. First remove the paper tray. Shut off the printer. Tilt it sideways if it's manageable. Then, clean the 2 rollers directly underneath the printer with alcohol. That solved my problem and hoped yours as well.

Says add paper to large tray even though it is full

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,

Over time the rollers get slick and hard. If one side is slick and the other edge is not, it will grab paper sideways and you get a paper jam. Get some rubbing alcohol and rub the rollers (completely all around) to get some debris removed. Some rollers require a slight rubbing with an abrasive pad.

Check the upper limit sensors if they are moving nicely and freely check out put or simply swap the sensor with other tray. "Or try with dust blower/dust buster can" Good luck
