Question about Xerox ColorQube 8900X
My company has lots of these printers out in the field and many of the end users are confused when it tells them that tray 1 is out of paper. The message does indicate that the print jobs will continue so long as the correct paper is found in another tray, however, we are looking to remove that alert all together. You can configure certain alerts but it doesn't seem as though you can configure the tray 1 alert. My thought was that maybe if you physically disconnected the "tray 1 sensor" -- that which tells the printer that tray 1 even exists -- that it would stop displaying the alert. Any thoughts or has anyone else seen or heard of a solution?

SOURCE: [No Paper] error
take out the paper tray and look inside. You will see a feed tire about 4 inches in, on the upper frame over where the paper stack would be. Right behind that feed tire, there should be a black hook shaped actuator that contacts the paper stack when you put the tray in. It is about 3 inches long.
Either that is knocked off or the sensor popped out of its slots.
The board could be bad, but that is very unlikely.
95 percent of the time that actuator is knocked off or the sensoe is out of place.
If you cant find the actuator, if that is the problem, you can slip a piece of tape , not scotch tape, some type of tape you cant see through, into the channel of that sensor. the only difference you would notice is you would not get an out of paper message but a jam when you ran out of paper.

I would first off try cleaning the feed roll in that tray well. That really sounds like slipping.
Go through all your programs and make sure that the driver machine and program you are running has the envelope settings the same.
Be sure they all match. Example. Make sure all the programs you are running through, have the settings for # 10 envelope, consistancy is needed for running envelopes. They are problematic.

You manually rotated the aluminum drum? Since you did that, I would suspect you have the print head wiper blade stuck between the drum and print head. The code you are getting it caused by the print head not being able to move freely.
The jamming is probably due to a bad registration clutch. Common failure on that machine.
You can go to Xerox.com, there is under documentation and drivers a parts list for that machine. You can reference the wiper blade and get the clutch part number there.
Let me know what other information you may need. I will be glad to help you get it running again.

SOURCE: Printing from wrong tray
I suffered from the same problem for a long time. We got Xerox Phaser 8550 and 8560 here. I choose on computer "tray 2" but the printer just print from tray 1 which is empty.
Today i figured it out! It's some configuration at the printer. So go to "Paper tray setp" -> "Tray 1 mode" and "Tray 2 mode" -> change to "static".
I figure it's like this. Before it was "dynamic", it probably means the printer decides it's better to use tray 1 even though you choose tray 2 - and this decision is stupid. Changing it to "static" fixes this.
Let me know whether this works for you too!
