HP 5MP flag sensor sticking

I have noticed that the little black spring-held flag sensor (visible at the the exit end of the printer) does not come up immediately after paper passes over it, thus causing a printer error. It will act normally after I have lifted it and re-set the printer a couple of times, and after several sheets of paper have passed through the printer. How can I fix this problem?
I'd try spraying it with some silicon or teflon lubricant.
