There is a little black piece under the machine when you remove the paper tray that must register when there is paper in the tray or something, ours has fallen out and has had to be sticky taped to hold it in and print anything or copy anything.
Is there any service people in the Newcastle NSW area that would be able to fix this?

Re: Saying load paper
Actually, you probably do not need a service person.
1. Turn machine off. 2. Remove toner assembly, not just bottle. 3. Unplug wire, and remove PCU. (right door must be open) 4. Remove the paper tray. 5 Turn the machine on its side.
You will be able to see, that it just snaps into place. Most likely one of the tabs broke off, but you can put a drop of super glue on it, and it will be fine. Make sure it has free up/down movement when installed before you glue it.
Then, make sure your guides in your paper tray are in there tracks. That is the most probable cause of your problem.

The paper jam in theKX-P7100 is usually due to the paper tray.
If you pull the paper tray
out you'll notice a black piece of plastic (located at the most
front) with a cork like material in the middle. Try pushing down on this
piece of plastic a few times. If it does not pop up immediately the
grease that Panasonic used has become "sticky". The piece of plastic is
removed by turning the tray upside down and pushing on the small plastic
tabs that hold the black piece of plastic in. Be careful to not loose
the spring that is located under the black piece of plastic or break the
plastic tabs that hold it in place. Once you get the black piece of
plastic out, clean it with que tips and clean the area it slides up and
down in. Make sure to remove all the "sticky" grease. Once you get it
clean, don't forget to stretch the spring to one more inch. the spring quality
is awful at tensile strength. Then place the spring back in its place and push the black piece of
plastic back in its place. You can add some light oil to the black plastic to make it slide better. After it is reassembled try pushing down on
the black piece of plastic a few times. It should spring up almost
immediately. This should take care of the jams that you are
In addition, you may have to stretch the 2 big springs under the metal plate in the
paper tray to one more inch. To access them, you'll have to unscrew the 3
philips screws under the tray (take a picture before :-)), take away
the 2 blue pieces and take out the metal plate.
Now I'm able to print from the media tray without any problem :-).
Please NEVER turn upside down machines like thit one. Lots of shits can happened!!!!
When you open left cover you will have to find paper sensors (little black pawls) and try to shake it a little(maybe someone is stacked). And please keep looking for piece of paper somewhere(look in all paper trays too)
Good day, I will give you the procedure how to clean the roller or canon pixma mp160.
Procedure: 1. Press [On/Off] to turn on the machine, then remove any paper from the auto sheet feeder. 2. press [maintenance] repeatedly until <b> appears. 3. press [black] or [color]. 4. repeat steps 2 to 3 twice. 5. open the paper output tray. 6. load 3 or more A4 or letter-sized paper in the auto sheet feeder. 7. repeat steps 2 to 3 times. the sheet paper is automatically fed in and then out of the machine.
mine was doing the same thing. pull the paper tray out and there is a black lever next to the feed drum, it wouldn't move up and down. I took of the cover and slid the lever over to the left so it would move freely and now it is fine.
when you will open the right cover see inside on the bottom has an black part which you can shift it toward the opened cover in the middle have one sensor in form of a pawl or little black finger see do is movable easy or it stack in one position, if this is good than see in the upper part has a blue piece of plastic open it toward you and see do here have some little part of paper sheet in the middle, if and this is OK remove the paper tray by the follow method:pull it toward you to the maximum you can then shift it up in some angle of 25-30% and pull it toward you then the tray should be out (you will return the tray by same way but in inverse procedure follow) when you will pull it out see do have some paper sheet inside if and this do not help then you will need to call a technician
Check the little black piece of plastic that senses the printed page exiting the machine. Our sensor was stuck and I was getting the same message (an similar Ricoh product). When I gently reset the black piece to center, moving freely, printing worked again. I think the sensor got jammed up when we were trying to remove a bad paper misfeed.
Ricoh manuals very confusing on this error message. They refer to standard tray, tray one, etc. without being clear whether it's a paper feed tray or the so-called "standard OUTPUT tray." The output is not really a tray, it's just the depression where your sheet lands after printing. I wrenched on the paper feed trays and their settings for an hour before I figured out they meant OUTPUT.
