Probably the way to go is to remove the toner and tray 2. lay down a bunch of newspapers on the floor (not a rug). The printer is unplugged at this point. Turn the printer over and lay it down. Take a sheet of paper and fold it lengthwise in quarters. Manually feed the folded paper into the paper path from the bottom. Push and pull the paper thru the paper path. The object is to push the small piece out where you can reach it.
It's not the easiest thing to explain. You always want to go in the direction that the paper moves thru the printer. This is why you start feeding from the bottom. You know that there is a piece of plastic that is above the feed roller for tray 1 that you can pull out to give you more room.
Well... you've either got a bad sensor, or there is something stuck in there. It doesn't take much to signal the jam.
Assuming you've been using it for a while, and the same type of paper, you might try some canned air and blow out the paper travel areas. (stay away from the toner cartridge.. remove that when you start blowing air around). If you're lucky this will dislodge whatever is tripping the sensor or you may see a small piece of paper fly out.
Carefully check the entire paper path and even pull out the supply paper, ruffle through it back and forth then replace it and give it a try.
Hit clear and/or power it off for a minute then back on... hopefully you had it off when you did all the above.
If that doesn't clear it, again, may be a bad sensor, or something stuck you can't find. In either case you're going to need a technician to get further towards getting the machine back in working order.
I would start by changing the paper or even leave the paper in the son for a while. Paper usually gets damp, espesially durint the evening and then using it early in the moring. If this do not work you will have to change the cartridge.
