have you tried to update the driver? Eventually re-install the printer?

First, it may need a new pickup roller. If the printer does not pickup paper when it should, it reports as being empty or paper jammed.

Second, it may just need to be rebooted.

Third, it may be a sensor issue, Try cleaning out around the paper path and pickup with canned air.

Last, it may just need to be reinstalled. delete it from your OS, then disconnect it. Reconnect it and reinstall it.

Check the half circle wheel at the base of the
paper slot. Clean the exposed edge with a
q-tip and alcohol. WHat sounds does it make
when you send it a print job?? If it makes a
noise like picking up paper but it doesn't,
try to rotate and clean the entire pickup
roller. Check the slot and clean the gap with
canned air.
