Index card trapped in printer?

  1. So I was stupid and I decided to see if my old Okidata 12i laser printer would print on 3x5 index cards...I was trying to orient it so it would print correctly, and it never came out. I've opened up the cover and looked for it, but I still can't see anything. The thing is, the printer say that it's got a paper jam. For all I know, it could be trapped deep inside where I can't get to it or anything.

    It'll still print out from the manual paper feed, so...I really don't know where the thing went! Any suggestions?

    On the other hand, I do have the money to buy a new printer (this one has been printing badly as of late) so I guess that would be the easy fix..

    Just disassemble the printer. Or take it to a repair shop and have them do it.

    I once paid a $50 bill for fishing out two peanuts from a Canon inkjet
