you can try doing a reset by entering "menu/set" & "*2864" all within 2 secs. you should see "maintenance" on screen. if not, try entering code again. once in maint. mode, enter "91". should say "parameter init." enter "99" to exit. if there is a true problem, you should see some sort of code pop up.

menu, * , 2,8,6,4 and then 82.. should give you error code log or list. then let us know...

also check the back door to make sure the paper flag is not broken.
