Are you certain all fragments of paper were cleared out?

Can you try pushing a piece of thin card through the paper feed slot to ensure any tiny pieces of paper get removed?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I checked for paper and fragmants, pushed card through, and blew air thru slot. Still doing same thing.
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
It is only happening once and awhile now!
Expert:  ElectronicsPete replied 5 months ago.

OK, if there is no paper fragments, then there may be some paper dust on the sensor - blowing air should help clear that.

Hopefully it clears up completely for you!
