Turn printer off. Turn it back on. When it starts to initialize press and hold "check mark" until all LEDs are lit.
Press "down arrow" until "COLD RESET" appears and then press "Check Mark".

Probably a DC Controller problem.
Have a tech check it out.

Take the fuser out of the printer after it has cooled.
Turn the gears on the left side of the fuser, this will cause the rollers to turn and you should be able to roll the paper out.
I never rebuilt fusers, so I can't give you info on taking it apart.

Over temperature error.
Reseat the fuser. Do this with power off.
If error persists, problem could be bad fuser or bad DC Controller.
