After about a year of good operation, the
printer now will cause create a fold in the paper . This is when the printer has been idle.
After warming up, it will print properly without folds. So now we're having to print junk copies before getting a good copy. Just printing small black only printouts for the warmup seems to require even more junk copies.

This may not help everyone that I send it to, but it is
worth a try.
I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy
paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print
button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it
will feed through the printer. The reason for this is in some cases I
have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this
way, saving costly repairs. Hope this helps.Bud
You most likely have a "claw" out of place in the fusing section. These are sharp little spring guided teeth that keep the paper off of the heated roller. If you had a paper jam and pulled the paper out forcefully it can flip these claws out of place, causing it to cut your paper. (or jam more often). To find these claws, follow the heat. They rest on the hottest part of the pressure rollers of the fuser.
The solution for this issue has to do with the paper used. I experienced the same issue and traded out the bargain paper for quality Xerox paper. The bargain paper is just too thin and is causing the sensors inside to misread and miss-feed into the various rollers and devices inside the printer. If you can afford a color laser then I guess they figure you can afford the premium paper. The Xerox paper I'm using is 24lb found at BJ's wholesale here in the South East US, though other quality papers will work as well.
take out all the paper from the loading tray, and press down on the
inside of the tray 4 or 5 times, and put a sheet back in. There seems
to be a physical irregularity with all 2300DL printers that causes this
