Hi, my printer and driver are both set up for 'plain paper A4' but when I try to print the printer says that I have a paper roll fitted and will not print. I do not have the roll fitting and the back of the printer is full closed. Please help, this is driving me mad !!

Was the sun hitting the back of the printer? I had the same problem when the sun was hitting the back. Once the sun moved, it was fine. Sounds crazy but someone else had the problem.

There should be no problem with the roll holder attached, as long as the roll paper isn't poking into the back of the printer.

I suspect the problem was that a sensor thought roll paper was inserted into the back of the printer.  Sunlight hitting the back of the printer could easily fool an optical sensor.
