Hi George,  I cover paper sensor with regular Braille paper and feed clear 
plastic through so that it thinks there is paper. Otherwise Briallo would say 
"out of Paper"

Hi Peter,

Stabbing in the dark here, but perhaps the paper sensor is optical, and
needs to be de-activated.  I've seen something similar before.

Remember it is CLEAR plastic they are embossing on to.
