yes printner error is still showing in the little window on RHS of priner with advice what to do which I have done¬¬


Thanks Brian
There is likely to be a very small piece of paper still stuck somewhere in the printer as even a very small piece will trip the sensor.
Can you check very closely for this please, even try to feed a piece of card through it to bring it out.
Let me know the results please

Thank You.

Had another look and found no paper fragments front or back

However when I turned the printer over again so it was upright the fault, presumably in the sensor seems to have corrected itself.

I have just printed out a doc. successfully.

Thank You for your help

It can be a very very small piece that can set off the sensor and turning it upside down may have dislodged it. Or it as you said, may have budged the sensor.
Good it is functioning again Brian.
