It is usually because you have the machine set up as A4 and the your documents or printer driver set to 81/2 X11(American letter size) size paper ,to override this ,got to the menu system button in the top left of the operation panel ,scroll down to printer setting in one of those menues you'll find A4/letter override turn it on and you'll get rid of the problem .

Is it a stolen copier?

Just kidding....

Check for dirt/dust and/or broken paper in roller tracks.

Make sure your default settings are for AUTO paper selection and 100% magnification to start. That is the most common default settings. Then, under "Zoom" change to AUTO magnification and under PAPER SELECTION specify Letter (either landscape or portrait). Now when you copy a legal original (8.5" x 14") it will be reduced at 78% to fit it on an 11" sheet. An alternative is to use "X-Y" zoom. Now you can stipulate 78% for the "X" dimension and leave the "Y" dimension at 100%. You will want letter size paper to be feeding lengthwise (portrait). Now you can copy legals and the image is reduced top-to-bottom only, leaving it much more readable.

You first need to pull the fuser out and manually check that it is running smoothly. More times than not, it will be the fuser rather than the motor.

If the fuser is fine, locate the motor then turn the machine on and visually inspect. If the motor does not run before the code pops up then replace it.
