After following the steps provided by acastro I was able to print. Then I went to: Properties > Date and Time and updated the time which takes some minutes to process and after that the message went away. Also maybe someone put some paper in tray 5 too https://www.support.xerox.com/en-us/article/en/x_wc58xx_en-O4945.
Perform an on demand overwrite. Go to this link. It will show you how to do it.
Solution : Perform an On Demand Overwrite
NOTE: The "Immediate Job Overwrite Failed" message occurs when a job is in the system and it cannot be automatically securely overwritten by Immediate Image Overwrite routine due to a power loss or unexpected system reboot, or from some other error that prevents overwrite of active jobs. Data may be left on the hard disk that was not securely erased.

This worked for me!! Thanks so much. It didn't actually get rid of the message which says bypass tray is empty, but it did allow all print jobs to go through again regardless of it being empty. Thanks again.
I am also experiencing this same issue. We just received this brand new printer and have had it for about a week. It did not do this before nor require the bypass tray to be loaded with any size paper. The status message began appearing today and now all other print jobs are on hold and won't print. I've tried loading the bypass tray with paper and it still won't print other jobs. Not sure what to do. I know that this bypass tray doesn't have to contain paper because it worked just fine without it. I have confirmed that no jobs were sent to this bypass tray and have deleted all pending jobs and resending a standard page print job that should have been printed from trya 3 or 4.
The tray sensor is always on, and as long as there is no paper in it the message will always be displayed in the driver here:
As well as here in CWIS:
My 7855 is also displaying this message. I can't get it to go away either. I didn't see any solution posted on this page (or anywhere else I looked) so I figured I'd bump it to bring it back to life.
I've tried the manual overwrite, but still get the message.
Firmware version is 072.040.104.14800, I realize that this isn't the most up to date version, however it's the version that works with my server for scanning.
The tray is empty, and in the closed position.
No jobs are being held in the queue for the bypass tray.
Any help would most definitely be appreciated.
There are new Software/Firmware releases almost monthly when you include the Spar releases. We need clarification:
I am getting the same error. All my 7855 have the Tray 5 (Bypass) is empty. message. There is no job waiting to print and even the new printers have never had any jobs sent to the bypass tray. I'm using the Xerox Global Print Driver PS 5347.600.0.0.
