Won't pick up paper, and reports Jam

The printer will print if paper is feed into the manual tray that folds out from the front. But, if I try to print from the main tray, it will run for a couple seconds, and then report a paper jam 13 without picking up any paper from the tray. I have tired having the tray full, 1/2 full, and almost empty; no change.

Based upon what I had read, I purchased and installed a roller kit. This did not change the symptoms.

Try watching the pickup roller through the opening at the back of the tray. You will be able to see why it is not picking up the paper.

Now, when I power it on, when it comes out of self test, it goes straight into "13 Paper Jam".

I checked the entire paper path and found no paper.

It is not even attempting to print or pick up paper now.

How do I figure out which sensor is causing this?
