If the copier worked fine before you moved it, you may have blown a fuse or damaged a board. Your best bet is to have a service technician take a look at the machine.

Before you call them, however, did you turn the machine off and unplug it, and did you open and close all of the doors and covers? It may just be a door that isn't closed all the way.

Ricoh Aficio CL3500N printer phantom misfeed

It seems that the sensor is having dust or toner settled upon it. Kindly remove the toner and clean the residual toner. Take a hard stock paper and give one copy command and push it while it tries to pull the paper. Paper misfeed is not the same as paper jam. Paper misfeed refers to the blank paper tray and paper jam refers to paper which has been taken from the tray and now inside the unit.

Sounds like the 'Clear misfeed' symbol. Open the front cover and follow the pictorial diagram instructions to check your paper feed path for jammed paper. Remove misfeed, and close covers. This should reset your machine.

Did you take out the toner cartridge and paper trays and open all the covers to try to find the misfeed? If there is really nothing there, you can try turning the printer off and back on to see if it clears itself.

How do I clear misfeed.

In most cases where the machine says there is a jam, and there is no paper in the paper path, it's because the paper never got out of the paper drawer and didn't reach the 1st jam sensor. If you can open the machine and it resets, then chances are the paper feed roller is either slipping or in some cases not turning at all. If you can't clear the jam by turning off the machine, and back on, then you have a bad jam setect sensor or perhaps a small piece of paper lodged on the jam sensor. This will take some additional troubleshooting on your part. Need to know if the jam indicator goes away when you restart the machine. Let me know and I'll try to guide you from that point.
