Isn't there a way you can open it up in case there's a paper jam? I would try to find a way to open it that way.

The moral of the story? Never hang posters above your printers, boys and girls. Take john123's lesson as good advice.

A paperclip fell in mine, I got it out, using one of those small extending magnets, you can get them in Maplins or similar stores, they're not expensive
