This error code indicates a problem related to paper cassette lift mechanism. First thing that you will need to check is, if the printer makes some strange noises at initialization, when the printer is trying to lift the paper inside cassette. You can verify if the lift mechanism on the printer is ok, by removing paper cassette and press the 3 small white switches on the left of printer. At this moment the printer is trying to lift the cassette and you will see a gear that rotates on the right side of printer. Also verify if the GEAR LIFT Z64 is intact by opening the gearbox(the big one from the gears from the right side of paper cassette). This gear is cracked in most cases. Replace it.

Paper feed results in a clicking and no feed


This sounds as if the paper pick up assembly is not lifting the paper-up to meet the rollers. This is like a ratcheting sound when lifting. When the paper gets high enough it hits a sensor arm and the copier will indicate paper in the cassette. If it doesn't lift it will quit but will never indicate paper in cassette. Does the other paper cassette feed? I know I've had to replace the paper pick-up assembly before because of this problem and is very expensive. Good luck.

I have a canon imagerunner 330s. It reads load paper and it is already full. Is there a sensor that went bad?


Sounds as though the lifting mechanism for the paper Pick-up assembly has gone bad. When closing the paper cassette you should hear a ratcheting sound, this is the lifting of the paper to meet the paper pick up rollers. It should stop and the display should indicate paper is present. If it continues to ratchet and never indicate the paper is ready, then the P/U assy will be the problem. The whole paper pick-up assembly will have to be replaced. In all my years of working on this model, I never successful in repairing the assembly.

Hello sharp sf-2027 error code F3


This is a paper feed tray problem. Check there is no paper behind the cassette. There may be a tray lift problem and this can be caused by paper being trapped behind it. reset the code once fixed by switching the machine off and on.

Good luck

I have a Toshiba 3560 copier. Its stating 'CASSETTE OUT OF ORDER' Any suggestions on getting this beast up and purring again?


Either there is paper trapped behind that cassette preventing lifting mechanism from lifting paper up to feed height.....or the lift drive assembly has failed. Pull the tray out until it stops, then lift front side of cassette to release/remove it. Look into opening towards right. If no paper, turn copier off then on....this should clear the 'cassette out of order' message. Now, reinstall your cassette. Make sure there is less than approx. 1/2 inch of paper in cassette, then insert cassette fully. It should attempt to raise up....if you hear popping noise during lifting process, the lift drive assembly needs repaired.

MFC886DN will not pick up the paper in the lower tray.


first, most common problem is the rear stopper in the cassette is pressed too tightly against rear of paper. leave 1/8" gap between stopper and rear of paper. if that doesn't help, pull cassette out and locate gear on left side of cassette bay and make sure it is not dislodged.

good luck,

Have you would try a different paper cassette.
Usually that clunking noise is associated with gears not mashing.
Is the lifter lifting the platform or not?
There might be something above the paper tray, maybe even the paper input assembly preventing the paper platform from reaching the top.
Check these and let me know what happens.
