What's the voltage at the anode of D6 when a sheet of paper is inserted?

Ah now we're getting more critical information. Too many wires going everywhere, no idea where they go...

2.5 volts across the phototransistor is fairly low when paper is inserted IMHO, though it should be just barely enough.
