52.00 error is a "scanner motor" problem.
Replace the scanner motor 1st, 2nd replace the DC Controller.

If you are not a printer tech, you will need one.

On printer check media/paper type tray 2 or 3 is plain and tray 2/3 is set for letter paper size too, via printer control panel. Also check under paper handling other options for tray 1, also on tray 2 and 3, I think there is a blue little round switch on left should be set as letter not custom.

Some paper types cannot be feed from anywhere else but tray1/bypass ie labels/laminate/card stock.

Check print driver on pc has tray 3 option installed and is not set as default to print to manual bypass/tray 1

light flashing cause printer wants paper type/size that it "thinks" it hasn't got in tray 2/3

If that dont cover it...post back

Dead formatter is the most likely cause. These units were notorious for this failure. Move on, buy a new printer, because you have a very good chance of getting another bad formatter if you buy parts for it.

The reason it isn't pulling from tray 2 which automatically is automatically the default tray is because the pick up rollers are bad. Replace them and you will be all set.

Firstly, is the exit bin full of paper? If it is, just remove it.

If not, then it's going to be a sensor that recognizes the paper amounts in the exit tray. Check for broken plastics and possibly stuck plastic flaps in the exit tray.

If it's neither of those, try turn it off, unplug, then reverse.

Other than that, if no go, then it's an internal sensor issue. At that point, probably the best bet is to replace as repair costs would outweight a new unit cost most likely.

Hi there is seems that the machine thinks there is too much paper at the paper printout exit. If there are printouts on the top of the printer remove them and the printer will start printing or the error message will go away. If there is nothing on top of the printer then where the paper comes out after it has printed you will see a black plastic lever type it is more likely to be in the up position without breaking it if it hasn't already been broken move it so it is in the down position it is on a hinge so be careful and it should sit at an angle. Once this has been done the printer will reset the message itself.

Hope this is help you oh if the arm is broken it will need replacing (just the arm)

Thanks J

How to clear the jam depends on where the jam is.

If the Jam is in Tray 1:
1. If you can see the jammed sheet, remove the jammed sheet by pulling it straight out.
2. If you cannot see the jammed sheet, open the tray 1 door and pull out tray 2.
3. Push down on two tabs to release the tray 1 panel.
4. Remove the jammed sheet by pulling it straight out.
5. Push up on two tabs to replace the tray 1 panel.
6. Replace tray 2.

If the Jam is in Tray 2:
1. Pull out tray 2 and place it on a flat surface.
2. Remove the jammed sheet by pulling it straight out.
3. Replace tray 2.
4. Press OK to continue printing.

If the Jam is in the Fuser area:
1. Open the rear door.
2. Remove any jammed sheets.
3. Close the rear door.

If the Jam is in the Output Bin:
1. Look for jammed paper in the output bin area.
2. Remove any visible media
3. Open and then close the rear door to clear the message.

It is possible that the paper may tear when clearing the jam. Be sure to clear any paper fragments that tear off.

It is most likely caused by a bad toner, or a sensor flag. Remove the toner cartridge, and you will see two sensors.


Check to see if the sensor flags are all the way back. Sometimes they look like they are good, but a slight lean forward can cause the error.


Place a piece of tape to hold the suspect sensor. Put the toner back in (dont print anything) and see if the error goes away. If it does, you found the culprit.


Remove the shield, and you will see the sensor, and most likely the spring got dislodged or bent. Use a paper clip if you need to pull it back up.


The spring should look like the above picture and the sensor should be all the way back.

The tray lifting error is displayed as 60.02 Tray 2 lifting error. To fix this error, check the surface sensor of the paper tray2 in the Manual Sensor Test 2 menu under the Troubleshooting menu.
Connect back the cassette lifter motor and the DC controller PCA's connectors and now, replace the filter driver unit in your printer.
