Out of the lower paper tray when you go to print? Try this, remove the cassette tray and use a water dampened cloth and clean the gray paper pickup roller off. A lot of times this has paper fiber build up that causes the paper not to feed. The printer has a certain timing pattern for when paper should reach a certain sensor, and if it doesn't, then a jam error will occur.

You may also have a problem with the paper feed (clutch, dirty feed/pick up tires) section, or even a dirty sensor as Jay mentioned. A sensor in modern office equipment is generally a photo sensor, which means it shoots light from one side to be detected on the other side of it. If it's dirty, it will give you a flase reading. Try cleaning the tires that pick up the paer from the tray (don't force them down if they won't rotate easily) with mild soap and water on a rag, and also try fresh paper. Sometimes if paper has been sitting for a while, or in damp conditions, it will pick up moisture and give you paper feed problems... which is what it sounds like you are having. Sounds like the paper may need even be making it to the sensor in the 1st place if it on comes out of the tray 1/2 an inch. Good luck

Somewhere very close to where the paper feeds into the machine, you should be able to find a little piece of rubber. This is the separation pad (sometimes it's made of cork). Clean that, and you should start working again. If it works, then you'll eventually need to replace the sep pad, as cleaning is a temporary fix. You can buy that and the feed roller (they should be replaced together) here:

Testimonial: "Thank you for the feedback. We have cleaned the seperation pad as well as the pick up rollers. Lot of dust particles were found on the pickup pad."
