Do a maintenance on copier, try to remove any paper jams.
Still if you get the error, then it looks like some controller is faulty, get support from your local vendor.

I have taken a look at the printer. There is are no paper jams.

Unfortunatly the printer is not under a maintenance contract, so unable to get help from there.

Thanks for your help.
That would explain the awful noise it makes when powering up.
