Hi, thank you for contacting My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
Turn the printer Off.

Wait 2 minutes.

Turn it On again. Wait a bit. The paper should be pushed out, or at least pushed onward in the paper path a bit, by the printer's own initialization.

Let me know whether that works or not, and whether (or not) you need further help, please.
