HP 5Si 55.1 error code

I installed a tray 3 Paper Jam repair kit for an HP 5Si - it still jammed. I took it apart and reinstalled everything again. Now all I get is a 55.1 error code. The error indicates that there is an error between the formatter PCA and the print engine. I removed & reinstalled the PCA formatter, but it didn't help.
You may have bent some pins when connecting the new tray unit or the wires in the connector itself are not making a proper connection. Try removing the connector from the tray 1 unit that connects to the dc controller and verify connectivity from the connector to the end of the cable within the paper feed unit. Make sure the
connector is plugged into the correct socket on the dc controller and that the cable di not get crushed between the chasis and the paper feed unit when you screwed it in as this could short the cable and also cause the error.
Hope this is some help.
