Can You Help me Please

We have this machine in our office and it is giving us tons of grief. Problem being: paper all stuck in the trays and the cartridge where you are suppose to load more staples in can't be put back in.

You need more help than I can give you. Someone needs to take off the back cover and manually move the bins up or down to be able to remove all that paper stuck there. This is the only way to do it and not break a sorter bin, which if that happens, is a LOT more work to fix. The bins could also be jammed on the stapler. Personally I'd leave this job to a qualified tech.

I have WC 7535 when I give print or copy from tray 2,3 & 4 printer showing paper jam in tray module

Look carefully on the left hand side. All the paper from those trays pass up the left. ( you probably know that) The last time I worked on one of those machines paper feeding up from those trays can get stuck you've got to investigate where the paper is stuck coming up from the trays. Open the left door and very carefully see how far the media has traveled, does the lead edge get damaged, dented or spoiled in any way. ( look closely there) don't just rip out the paper, investigate why. Just how far has the media moved from the tray selected. I suspect a torn bit of paper stuck inside. If your machine is difficult to get to you must make room to look properly with a torch if necessary. Pull out trays 1 & 2 fully so you can look without being hindered. Good look!

Hello, my copier machine cannot detect paper

Pull paper tray out and set aside,
in the back there is white lever above the spring
push lever in ,a black actuator should drop down
if it does not it may be broken or stuck.
The tray select button on the control panel should allow you to use the side tray.
