HPlaserjet IIIsi paper jam message 13.1

Have a IIIsi which has a false paper jam message #13.1. there is no paper in the printer. seems to be a sensor failure. is it worth fixing??????
even if it can be fixed.
Probably a stuck sensor. There's one at registration. Remove the 4 screws holding the registration assembly in and you'll see it. There is one on the fuser assembly, an arm in the center going over to the sensor in the right side of the printer body. Check both of them for freedom of movement. You might try blowing some air in them since it doesn't take much too block the light in the aperture. They're both optical sensors with a light shining on a photocell.
