hp 2100 paper sticking underneath the toner cartridge

Hi,

I have an hp 2100 printer that the paper (after it is fed from the paper tray) gets stuck underneath the grey bar underneath the toner cartridge.  Every sheet gets stuck there.  How can I fix this?

if the paper does not move further, you probably have a piece of paper in there somewhere, and need to remove it

Look here for more info for the Laserjet 2100 :

If you have been printing stickers they can "Gum up the Works" and as nobus said a piece of paper probably is stuck in the paper path.  I've seen a tendency for a piece of paper to tear off and be stuck on one of the sides - mostly left - and cause a constant jam.  Whatever the issue a paper jam in the paper path is probably the source of your problem.

Thanks for your comments.  I actually discovered the problem to be the paper flag sensor in the rear of the machine.  I am going to have to replace it.
