SOURCE: paper jam in tray 2
the most common problem for a paper jam in tray 2 is that either the pick up rollers and separation pads are worn or that there is something stuck to the rollers that transfer the paper up through to trat 1.(most commonly from if people have been printing on stickers/labels) just eyeball it to see if anything looks to be stook and try wiping it off. DO NOT SCRATCH IT OFF as this will only make things worse!!!

SOURCE: rx tray full remove paper
That is an easy one.
Look into the area where the paper comes out. You have to look toward the upper rear area rear area. There is a white plastic flag, about 2 inches wide and 1 inch in height.
On each side of it you will see 2 areas where the shaft snaps into, that flag has popped out of those clips and is not seeing the sensor making the machine think there is a piece of paper in the output tray.
Reach in and gently maneuver that back into position and carefully snap it back into place.
That is an odd shaped actuator you can't see, but with some patience you can snap it back into place. Maybe also gently take a pair of needle nose pliers and slightly tighten those clips that it snaps into. I suggest that with a lot of concern so that you do not snap the plastic clips, they are part of the frame that if broken would be expensive to replace. Use your discretion as to whether they need to be tightened. If it snaps back in and feels solid DO NOT try to tighten them please.

Thanks, your suggestion led me to the solution, the jam not in the rollers or a senser, but it's in the dock of the printer head, when the printer head moved across, I shone a torch into the dock and saw a black thing, so eventually pulled it and realised that it was paper and it had been dyed black by the ink so that's wht it would be hard to spot!!!! Thanks again

Remove the paper tray. Check that the paper length adjustment is set correctly for the paper you are using. It's the small blue dam at the center 'back' of the paper tray.

this is most likely to be worn pick up rollers. these are the two rubber wheels that you can see underneath the printer when you remove the tray. you should be able to source these from a local suplier and are very easy to fit. just make sure your gentle with the clip that holds them in place as if they break then you will need to buy a whole new pick up assembaly which is significantly more expensive.
hope this helps
