    If if had ran out of paper during a print job, you will have to reset it. There are many ways to do this, and it depends on what your printers setting is for this. Most have a program switch. Other require you turn it off and back on. Some just hit the power or feed button. Some even require you to purge all documents.

    Some printers have the same warning light for paper and ink so check your ink levels too, but my guess is that there is a paper jam inside the printer

    hey, what kind of printer do you have? could it have more than one paper feeder? if it is a newer printer they have a bottom feeder... i hope this helps you.
