To resolve this error:
  1. Make sure that the mail piece is at least 3.5 inches x 5 inches.
  2. If the mail piece is within those specifications, reboot the meter and clean the sensors:
    1. Turn the power off with the power switch and wait for the display to turn off.
    2. Clean the sensors with lint-free wipes or swabs, then blow out entire paper path with non-flammable canned air.
    3. Wait one minute.
    4. Turn the power switch back on.
