Printer wont complete boot sequence
ANSWER : That’s a really old machine, I had helped someone replace a belt a year or 2 ago in a 450 also. Opened it up & when I went to release the belt motor (I think its called a scan axis or carriage motor) the plastic arm that wraps around a metal bar was cracked. Put the belt in anyway but it must have been bad enough as it would throw an error, I think he gave up and replaced the machine but don’t remember. Some parts like this are hard to find & if found are likely used and could suffer the same failure again since plastic gets brittle as it gets old.

Tray 2 solenoid part found under printer; Paper feed issue
ANSWER : What you are describing sound like the solenoid plate and return spring. If you look at the plate itself, you’ll see a lip curling up on one end and there are 2 slots on the sides at the other end. The lip is what stops the roller from turning until the solenoid pulls the plate down. The slots go on the 2 poles sticking up on the solenoid with the lip pointed up. Then you hook the spring on the 2 metal tabs one on the solenoid body and the other between the 2 slots at the back of the plate.
