You have to get in to service mode. Press the "*" botton once then the numbers "2 & 8" togather, then the "*" botton once and the screen changes. On the top of the diplay touch "Funcation" then "CLR" 2nd colum 3rd one down, then press "ERR" hi light it in blue then press the "OK" on the bottom right of the screen and turn the main power switch OFF on the right side and see if it was cleared. If not you may have a bigger problem.. Good Luck...

1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button.
4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.
If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
7. Turn the printer off.
8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.

After reading through earlier problem fixes, I inserted a piece of Card right through the feed system then taped all the covers and loose paper feed trays closed with masking tape.
Picked the whole unit up, turned it upside down and shook it up and down and side to side quite hard.
Put it back in place on the desk, undid all the tape and plugged both cable back in and switched it on. It went through a long startup process, spat out the card sheet and has worked OK since then (about 15 sheets printed).
Thanks for all the ideas in earlier fixes.
