Sharp FO5700

I have never seen this error code on a sharp FO 5700 are you sure that is the right model # or error code. I even did a search in the FO5700 service manual(no luck). I believe I have seen this code before on a sharp copier.

Message that tray is out of paper, and tray is not in machine.(SHARP FO-5700 Fax)

Go underneath the machine and make sure that a black piece of plastic is secured in there. Sometimes they get pulled out when the tray gets removed.
