This is usually do to a sensor, your correct on that, thers usually a plastic piece that indicates theres paper and its broken or worn.
The other thing is that it may be the little rubber grabber is worn and not grabbing the paper, so the printer thinks thers no paper because nothings going through. These parts can be orderd but are usually costly depending on the printer. If its under warranty, take it back.
Also, check the trey and make sure it isnt a I.D.10.T error and you just set the paper to legal or something. I've made that mistake before.

A flag is a little plastic piece that is hinged and goes in between a sensor and a light source. They use a ton of them in printers. It actually looks like a flag, about 1/8th inch square that can move in between the sensor parts. It's possible that it broke when you took the envelope out. Most likely it's the paper exit sensor in the fuser. They can break easily. If so, then you'll have to get the sensor flag or a whole new sensor. Check with a local repair shop. They should have the sensor and can install it in a jiffy.

This is a common issue and most times a bear to repair. There is a
sensor flag mounted on the paper feed assembly behind tray 1 which has
a habit of either coming off or the spring which moves it back a forth
comes out of its holder. In any case it is one of the worst repairs you
have to do. Many items have to come off to get to it and getting that
flag and spring on correctly even with the instructions is difficult.
Usually what will happen is you get the 13.20.00 error on power up with
no motor movement and when you open and close the top cover, the motor
will move but the same error reappears. If you are lucky it is just a
case of a shred of paper blocking the sensor flag from moving and worst
case of the flag having come off. You will need the service manual and
check the removal and replacment section on the paper feed assembly and
play close attention to the 3rd page.
sometimes this error also appears if a wrong fuser is installed in ur printer that is not ur model number.... have it checked
thank you have a nice day
