The error message is "Out of Paper" Plenty of paper in drawer, added more, still won't print. Will not print in Word, Quick books Pro, local multiple listing service programs.....tried aboaut 6 programs get same message.
The local tech got online and tried working with the ports, cancelling drivers etc and reinstalling. OUT OF PAPER.
The last item I tried t print was online from MLS and the activity report I reqquested was 139 pages (I cancelled it at page 5). Nothing is left in the printer ques. I presume the programmer set up so if out of paper printer would stop and leave message. How do I get rid of the error?

I assume you are trying to print from your computer.
The driver for this unit will give you an out of paper message almost any time it won't print for any reason.
If the unit copies, but does not print from your computer, then it is a communication issue. Perhaps uninstall/reinstall the driver?
If this is the first time you have seen this error, do the following:
Power off the printer.
Remove all installed paper trays.
Make sure the paper is loaded correctly in each tray. If it is not, reload the paper into that tray.
Look up into the printer where the paper tray slides in and out. Check the feed (autocompensator) assembly for any damage.
If everything is fine, reinstall the tray and power on the printer.
Try printing a few print jobs.
If the error does not return, continue using the printer as before.
Keep an eye on it for the next few days. If the error does not
return, it may have been an isolated incident.
If the error returns just as soon as you power on the printer or
when you try to print again, you will need to find out which paper
tray/paper source is causing the problem.
If the printer has only the one integrated paper tray, the problem
will be with either the tray 1 pick arm/autocompensator assembly or the
printer's engine/system board.
If the printer has more than one paper tray installed, try printing
from each paper tray one at a time. The best way to do this is to have
all of the paper trays empty and then proceed as follows:
Put paper in tray 1 only.
Print from tray 1.
If tray 1 works fine, empty tray 1 and put paper in tray 2 and so on until you encounter the error message.
If you receive the error when printing from one particular tray, power off the printer to clear the error.
Power the printer back on.
Skip the faulty paper feed slot and move on to the next one (if
another one is present). If you can print from all but one of the paper
trays, this is the source of the problem.
If you have extra
paper trays/drawer units installed and the error occurs from only one
particular source, there are some things you can do as a temporary fix.
If the error is occurring from an OPTIONAL paper drawer/source,
power off the printer and remove the defective drawer from the printer.
You will then need to set up the printer to print from a different
tray. For information on removing an optional drawer, click here.
If the error is occurring from the integrated paper tray (tray 1)
AND you have optional paper trays installed, take all of the paper out
of tray 1 but leave tray 1 installed. Set up the printer to print from
one of the other paper tray sources (tray 2, tray 3, multi-purpose
And if your getting the same error then you need to get it serviced...
The problem is that you have a fax saved in memory that is the wrong size for the paper you have in the drawer. Probably it is a legal size, whereas you have letter size in the drawer.Just place some legal size paper in the by-pass tray to print.
