HP 6L - 2nd sensor location?

I have the printer out of paper/toner/pjam error. I found past threads instructing to inspect the sensors. I found the first at the rear on the right, if looking at the rear of the machine. I can't seem to find that 2nd one. I believe it may be the culprit as when i took the covers off, i found a guitar pick, squarely lodged between one of the white paper feed rollers at the front of the machine. Looks like it went along for the ride when the last piece of paper was used. Any help is greatly appreciated. I need this thing back online fast! ;)
Ok i must be blind, i found the 2nd sensor and it seems to be functioning normally. Given the top light symptom and the discovery of the guitar pick, do you have any other suggestions?

I was going to add photos of the 5/L 6/L sensor locations to the troubleshooting page. The sensor that will usually give the problem is the one that is located in the center, bottom of the fuser assembly. This is the spring loaded one and is the one that tends to pop out of it's holder. This website is beginning to become a full time job. I wish I had more time to devote to the improvements I have planned for it.
