Check that your outfeed table isnt a tad high. I had a problem getting a board to start on the outfeed table. The wood got caught on the lead edge of the outfeed table. I was also getting tapered wood if it required a lot of machining on the jointer. I had to lower the outfeed table just a little - about 1/8 turn on the adjustment. Unfortunately, I didnt measure it with a dial indicator.
Make sure your guard does not have too much spring force pushing the wood tight to the fence. I haven't heard of this happening, but it is a possible issue. I know that it can jam a piece against the fence if you try to back up.
