Just picked this up, and plugged it in to try it. Tried to make a copy to test it and the paper feeds crooked and jams the machine setting a paper jam message. Although it is a bit humid today (I've read that these machines are a bit tempermental with paper jams in the humid weather), I tried fresh, crisp paper and it still jams.
Is there a good visual picture of the insides of the machines where one can check for issues and see where to inspect the parts/clean up what's inside? I doubt this machine has ever seen much in the way of maintenance, it was made in 2003 according to the back label on it.

This is the test to determine toner/drum or fuser issue. Print a test page When you hear the paper feed into the machine open the top to stop the machine Remove the toner/drum cart. You should be able to see the page with printing on it. (This is before the page hits the fuser) If you can see the smudge or marks on the page the problem is most likely the cartridge but NOT the fuser. If the page is clean the problem is most likely the fuser.
It could be one of two things. First and most common is one of the sensors is dirty/stuck and a quick round of compressed air will usually take care of it. This is especially common if you have been running 3 hole punched paper as the loose punches tend to cover sensors. Recycled paper also tends to leave some dusty residue and that will, in time, obscure the sensors, along with a dusty environment or if the machine is on the floor.
Another possibility is one of the physical sensors got knocked off course a bit. This could be caused by pulling out jammed paper too roughly or running lots of heavy paper through the unit. I would do a visual inspection for any bent or crooked parts.
Are we talking about a paper feed problem from the paper cassette tray or the Auto Document feeder on the top. Either way, check the the paper width guides, or if it is the paper cassette tray, remove it and check the paper pick up roller locking clips.
