I put in an OHP transparency, and got out half of the picture on (the next) plain page, but no sign of my transparency. Now the printer will no longer print, and I can't see where the transparency has gone - error shows in the top section, but how do I remove the top or get access to that area to find where it is jammed?

Thank you for your lengthy and informative question that does help.
My first thoughts:
Did you try and tell the driver what particular type of paper you wanted to print on such as none Xerox recommended.
A thought just occurred if you were wanting to print transparencies then the printer would have to print strong colours at 100% because once you place the image on a OHP the image would look really washed out.
All the Xerox printers I've ever worked on don't have sensors that look at the opaqueness of the media, they do however have transparency sensors because once the edge of the paper has been detected a jam could occur, so lever type sensors are used to actually feel the media.
BYPASS TRAY is sed when printing onto paper with a size not loaded into a paper tray or onto thick paper, overhead projector transparencies, postcards, envelopes or label sheets
Can be loaded with up to 150 sheets of plain paper, 50 overhead projector transparencies, postcards, label sheets or sheets of thick paper, or 10 envelopes referred to as the "bypass tray" throughout the manual. (See page 2-60....ATTACHED )
When you change the settings do you hot then 'OK' button to see that the astix is next to it ? When changing settings make sure that you see that astrix next to your changes if not you will return to it's original setting. I alreaded assumed you knew how to access the menu's Make sure you set these setting by"OK" some printers like "Xerox" will make you hit the "Select" key
OK so i tricked my 810 into printing on a transparency. NOT that I recommend doing this ... but .... I took four pieces of clear tape and taped the top (where it goes into the printer) and on each side about three inches from the top.
Then I put it in the tray with the transparency on the bottom of the paper -- since it brings it up thru the printer and flips it over, it prints right onto the transparency !!!
It didn't like it the first time, since I just folded over the tape on the end that gets sucked into the printer first. Hence the added stabilizers on each side.
When you say TOP TRAY, do you mean a paper drawer, or the BYPASS TRAY? If the labels won't feed into the bypass but bond paper does, check to see if your labels are made for inkjet printers. Go to www.avery.com and contact Avery customer support to see what product they recommend for your MFC. Labels made for plain paper printers sometimes do not work for inkjets, and vice-a-versa.
You can't use ordinary transparencies if you use ink... find a special transparency that is sold by Espon, but that's rare to find now... only Laser printers can print color or black on ordinary transparency
