Is it possible that you have the default tray set as "tray 1" (the one on top) and the paper is actually in tray 2 (the one on the bottom?)

If so, you should be able to press the "check" button & the printer will accept the paper in the bottom tray.

We have an Savin Copier 816 which has an error message to load paper. There is paper in the tray.

If you are sure that there is paper in the tray the problem is in the papaer sensor.
It maybe broken or out off the place.
Take the tray out and look inside. Maybe you see the sensor out off the place. If so just put it gently in the place.
Hope this helps you.
See you!
