    Stupid, I know! Since that is out of the way... The printer had just grabbed the paper from the feeder side to start printing. Without thinking I grabbed the paper and yanked it out. Unsurprisingly after that I kept getting a catastrophic signal. I clean the light sensor, I ran the "WicReset" program and it told me it was something mechanical. There was a black rod (see) pic, I understand it was part of the sensor to detect the paper in the feeder, was out of place. I fixed it but nothing.
    I did notice that the printer is not grabbing the paper at all.
    I just want to know, what did I most likely break, can I fix it and where could I get schematics? I promise, I am actually kind of handy.
    I would like to try to fix it since it really is [was] in good condition.
