Hi. Welcome to justanswer.

Are you getting any error on the printer or on the computer screen?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The first errors I got was ink running out lights on printer, although there was in. The next thing was paper tray empty, on replacing paper the problem started

Have you checked if paper source is selected as main tray. Can you start the remote desktop session so that I can check and resolve the issue?

Try this:

1. Load letter, A4, or legal unused plain white paper into the main input tray.

2. From Printer's Control panel: Press and hold (Power button), press (Resume button) three times, and release (Power button).

Have you checked if the paper size is correctly set

Expert:  nathan_mills replied 1 year ago.

Have you cleaned the rollers?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Set to A4
When you press print rhe printer starts as if trying to pick up the paper. But comes up with message no paper in tray, although there is. Have taken off the back panel and cleaned rollers on panel itself and also the rubber ones in back of machine, Have taken nothing apart
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 1 year ago.

Remove the stack of paper and keep a single sheet of paper and push it as far as it goes without much force. Try printing again

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Nothing, sounds like it goes through the motions but does not pick up and warning light comes on.
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 1 year ago.

How old is your printer?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Aprox 2 to 3 years, but not used continually.
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 1 year ago.

I think there is some issue with the feeding rollers. The wheels sometimes break which causes this kind of issue as the feeding roller doesn't move to pull the paper up. You will need to take this to a local repair. It will not cost you much. The repair will cost you around £15

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Thanks. I thought it might be a mechanical problem as all the things you suggested I had tried previously.
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 1 year ago.

Sometimes the issue is software related and that is why we have to adopt this step by step approach.

Thanks for the ratings. Good night.
