Definitely a feed roller/guide jam. Been there. Done that.
Probably just need to clean the paper path and the rollers.

I'm surprised that Admintool didn't just do this for you - I usually

Just beware. $2 isn't all that bad but if it is green and smells like
antifreeze then it's probably Simple Green. $3 of which would probably

No problem. I sent this thing this morning and it got stuck because
I'm an idiot and had my Reply-To typo'd in Mail.app after
re-configuring all the accounts.
