HP Laserjet 4015 / 4015tn says paper jam in tray 3, but there is no jam and will not print until power cycled.

I have a HP Laserjet 4015tn printer that will print one page from tray 3, but immediately after says printer jam in tray 3 and will not work (when printing to ANY tray) until power cycled.  There appears to be no jammed paper.  After power cycling you can go on to print from tray 2 and the manual feed tray 1 with no problem. I have updated all drivers and the device's firmware to the latest versions.

Most likely a paper sensor is sticking. I would check each of the sensors to find the culpit and replace.

I have no experience with hardware issues on printers.  Do you have any details or links on how to check the sensors and where they are?

You can try this link http://www.printerworks.com/Catalogs/HP-LaserJet-P4015/F25_LJP4015.html, but if you have no experience in taking printers apart, you may be best to hire someone or contact HP direct.

One basic thing you could do is get a vacuum and brush.
Use a pointed jet for the vacuum cleaner.

Off the power of the printer. Vacuum off any dust along.
Clean the path where the paper travel. If you can use a cloth to
clean.
The sensors are placed along the path where the paper travel.

It could be the sesnor is blocked by dust or torn paper.

Above procedure will only help if there is any carbon on the sensors.
However if the sensor is faulty it will not help.
Some thing for you to try out.

If the sensor is faulty, is this sensor part of tray 3, or the main part of the printer?  I guess I'm asking if getting a new tray 3 would possibly solve the problem?

asiduCommented:
Sensors usually are on the printer.

You could interchange your existing trays to see if the problem clears.

Also as suggested earlier by KPYANE123 contact HP for their advise.
