My printer will not take the paper from the a4 paper tray.

Customer Question

my printer will not take the paper from the a4 paper tray. I get the error code 1008. I have separated each sheet of paper after fanfolding the paper to separate the sheets of paper. What can I do to get my printer to work?

Hi there,Error code 1008 can occur if the paper is not detected.This can happen if a tiny fragment of paper is jammed inside the printer, preventing fresh paper from feeding in.Try pushing a piece of stiff card through the printer - this will help clear out any small fragments of paper that may be blocking it.Pete.
