Look for a little tab that fits into a little slot, often an optical switch reports 'cover open'. Even if you have to put a little piece of paper in there, block that light.
Duct tape fixes all things. Masking tape is a little less messy.
Open the print carriage access door. Check for any packing material that may be blocking the internal components. Check for an orange shipping lock that may still be in place on the left side. Pull the shipping lock out, if present, and discard.
Remove and reinstall the cartridges to make sure they are properly installed. Lift the front center of the print carriage access door to open it. Lift the door up until it locks into an open position. Press down on a print cartridge and allow it to spring back up. Lift the cartridge out of the printer. Do the same for the other cartridge. Slide the black cartridge into the slot on the left and the color cartridge into the slot on the right. Press down on each one to lock it into place. Lower the print carriage access door.
Check the print cartridges to make sure the protective tape has been removed from the ink nozzles. Remove the cartridges from the printer. Remove any tape or labels. Replace the cartridges into the printer.
Push in on the tab on the left side of the clean-out door on the back of the printer to open the door. Lift the door out of the printer. Check for any paper jams. Jammed paper can block the printer cartridge carriage from moving. Pull any jammed paper out.
Same thing on my printer. The density sensor door was sticking open against the springloaded solenoid. Simply remove the power supply assembly from the back of the printer (search for the service manual online; it has instructions under section 14 on how to do this; make sure to disconnect the four large red wires and the three connectors on the right hand side of the unit before pulling it out). Find the little solenoid on it that pulls the density sensor door open and you will see it will stick to the tape on the solenoid (bad design on Brother's part). Use alcohol to remove the sticky stuff from the solenoid and the sensor door and you can put some small single sided sticky tape back onto the solenoid to act as a cushion. Then double check the sensor door opens and close without sticking by manually moving it open and letting it go. If it goes back to closed without sticking, you are good to go. Re-assemble everything and your printer is fixed!
Thanks to Dewaine Chan for providing these instructions on how to get at the separation pad http://forums11.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/bizsupport/questionanswer.do?threadId=964548&admit=109447626+1263780058294+28353475 1). Open the printer cover and remove the Toner cartridge. Remove the two silver screws at the top of the printer (One on each side). 2). Remove the three screws holding the Back cover piece. Pull the back Paper Guide in the Up position. Use a small flat head screw driver to loose to two latches through the opening. After that, you will need to use the same screw driver to loose the latches holding the back cover in place. There are at least two at each side. 3). Remove the back cover after you have released all the latches.
4). Turn the printer over and remove the memory slot cover by press on the latch.
5). Open the front cover. There are two latches (one at each corner) at the front bottom. You need to gently release them. After that, you should be able to slide the cover upward and off.
6). At the right side toward the top, you will see a spring clip pushing a white latch in place. Use the needle nose to remove it.
7). Use the needle nose to slightly pull the white color latch and turn it counter clock wise to release it. Please note how it is put in place. Pull it out after you have unlatched it.
8). Move to the left side. Press on the two latches to remove the Clutch gear assembly and slide it out. Please note this assembly has two unequal slots.
9). Now you have freed up the Pick Up roller assembly, you need to slide this assembly out from the right side first. Fiddle with it a bit to get it out.
10). Pull the paper guide up upward to remove it.
11). Push on the Kick plate to release it and then swing it upward to slide it out be careful not to loose the spring.
12). Unlatch the separation pad clip from the back and lift it up.
13). Unlatch the Separation Pad and get it up to remove it. Replace it with the new one.
14). Use a small flathead screw driver to remove the two sub pads and replace them with new one.
15). Do everything in reverse order. I read an on another post to use cork gasket material and double sided tape to replace the pad, and this worked great.You can buy a roll at autozone for about $6. I didn’t do the small pads, that is optional.
Had exactly the same problem. The solution was a piece of scotch tape. Open the small paper tray, and position the paper guide (the rear one, not the side one) so that you can put your paper stack down with a little bit of looseness, then tape it down so it can't slide back and forth anymore. Now put the paper back in. This worked like a charm for me. Turns out the rear guide was a little too loose so that everytime the paper tray got sucked in, it would push the whole paper stack backward and then the rollers couldn't find the top sheet to feed into the printer.
I've had a similar problem with a client's 8200 printer, and looking at the right hand side of the tray someone had previously put some tape over the topmost 'slot' (above where the green slider goes across).
I put some new tape over the top slot and the 'replace paper tray' message went away.
Admittedly, the tape gets pushed in so I don't know how long it will be before the tape gets dislodged and the error re-appears.
The printer is well out of warranty and they don't want to pay anything to get it fixed... so this solution is fine with them.
There may be a small piece of label cutting stuck in the gears.
remove the label cartredge, you will see a white gear set between the pinch wheel and the print head. Use a micro drive or something strong and give the gears a little help while pushing the print button. You may have to do this several times. Be careful not to use too much force as this may knock a tooth off. Good luck.
My Dymo continues to print prefet labels.
