Thanks for the tip. When I opened it to look for a piece of paper stuck inside, I noticed grease on the timing slit disk film. I cleaned it and all is OK.

Great advise! We had two elastics jammed down in there and when we surgically removed them the printer worked again! Thanks!

Worked, some pieces of paper jammed somehow and stuck half under the paperfeeder.

I got the 6000 error over and over but could find nothing.
What solved it ?
The door had not been opening automatically, I opened the front paper door manually and the error was gone and printing.
