If you have any more information about your question you would like me to know about then please go ahead and send me another message. If I have all the details about the question, then I can give a more precise accurate answer.

Let's try this first. Remove all paper and then unplug the printer from the wall. Let it sit unplugged for about five minutes. Next, plug it in and then load the paper.

Please let me know when you have do this and what the result is.

I have done this but the same message has come up.

Thank you. Let me check for the next solution step.

Thank you for your patience. Does it look like there is any broken pieces on the printer like a sensor out of place or anything look blocked or broken?

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
I've had a good look using a flashlight and there is nothing apparent that is broken.

Thank you for that information. One moment please.

Thank you for your patience.

Turn off the printer and when you turn it on press the power button and the feed button until it flashes.

It may be the red X button.

i can't see any other buttons!

On the printer itself?

Try this guide. It give other solutions I need you to try to use to resolve this.

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
ok a very small piece of paper from underneath. Now the message has gone. I can copy. However, when i come to print an email the box says my printer needs attention!

Does it go into any more detail than that?

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
Status: Attention required. Comment: This is a web services printer.. I have sent an email to print but nothing has happened and the face on the printer has gone blank.

Thank you for that information. To best fix this issue disconnect it from the computer and on the settings on the computer uninstall the printer. Once it is uninstalled reboot the computer and then add the printer back. This will fix this issue.

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
how do i disconnect from the computer which i assume is my lap top?

Is it wireless or with USB?

Customer: replied 12 days ago.

In that case you don't physically unplug it. You just remove it in settings.

No jam. It's printing as normal now. I'm just printing off a couple of recent emails.
