Props to Profjake. I followed his advice and problem solved! Here is what I found out.
I had the "Back door open" error on the LCD panel. There is a "interupter" type of sensor that detects if the back door is open or closed. When the back door is closed a lever is pushed forward and blocks the interupt module. The lever that blocks the sensor was not reqching the sensor horizontally - it was too far to the left. The lever on the far right is part of a 6" rod that goes across the middle of the paper path. The rod had jumped out of it's "home" position to the left and it was bowed a little bit. I carefully re-seated the rod to by gently lifting it and moving it to the right into a slot 1/8" from where I found it. The error cleared immediately. The was most likely caused by removing a paper jam.
Once again props to Profjake as his advice led me to the solution.
Hu said that!

This error is due to tray problem check if the back tray latch is not broken .also check the Fuser unit at the back if its not been fixed or loose contact.

This is happening because there is a paperjam in the machine and its covering the sensor for the back cover. Open the front cover of the machine and remove the drum and toner, then you can remove the paperjam.

I was about to surrender, but tried again in a calmer mode and started checking everything in the paper path thru the printer.There's a small coiled spring that can come loose under the printer. This spring is connected to the plastic lever/sensor that tellls the printer there's paper in the drum/toner chamber.You should see it with the help of a lamp or flashlight, since almost everything under the printer is black plastic. You have to prop the printer on it's back to see it. there'a metal plate exactly below the paper feed rollers, you have take that plate out by removing the six screws that hold it in place. This is to check that the lever/sensor I pointed before is actually inside the hole that holds it in place. The spring, if its loose should be hanging by one of it ends using very small tweezers or needle nose pliers, you should be able to hook it back to the lever/sensor, it has a hooked end where the spring should hook to. The printer is working like a charm again!!! (IF THIS SPRING IS MISSING, IT SHOULD BE REPLACED WITH A SIMILAR ONE, IT IS ABOUT THE SIZE OF A BALLPOINT PEN SPRING, BUT WITH LOW TENSION, IT HAS THE TENSION OF A LEAF SPRING LIKE THE ONE IT THE BACK COVER OF THE PRINTER)
