There is a good possibility that the main thermistor and the sub thermistor has gone bad or is dirty. also it might need adjusted to be better placed next to the upper fixing roller.

If you have done all the things, there might be problem with hardware. If the display shows after the paper taken from tray, then replace the paper size detection switch inside the tray.
