1. A paper outputting mechanism, comprising:
a frame, a rear of the frame having a receiving room, a front of the frame having a slope connected with the receiving room and inclining downward from a rear to a front of the slope;
at least one motor mounted to the frame;
a paper supply tray assembly including a first paper supply tray and a second paper supply tray placed on the first paper supply tray, the first and second paper supply trays placed in the receiving room, front ends of two sides of the first paper supply tray extend upward to form two first support plates, rear ends of the first support plates form two first tilting surfaces inclining downward from fronts to rears of the two first tilting surfaces, front ends of two sides of the second paper supply tray extending upward to form two second support plates, front ends of the second support plates form two second tilting surfaces inclining downward from rears to fronts of the second tilting surfaces, at least one first elastic element being disposed between the first and second paper supply trays;
a gear assembly driven by the at least one motor, the gear assembly driving the first paper supply tray to move frontward and rearward;
a paper pressing element up and down movably mounted to the frame and located over the slope, two sides of the paper pressing element being connected to the frame by two second elastic elements; and
a blocking element front and rear slidably mounted to the frame and located over the slope and in front of the paper pressing element, two sides of the blocking element being connected to the frame by two third elastic elements;
wherein the at least one motor drives the gear assembly to bring along the first paper supply tray and the second paper supply tray move to the slope and further move frontward on the slope, the second support plates of the second paper supply tray make the paper pressing element move upward by guide of the second tilting surfaces for allowing pass of a paper, the second paper supply tray pushes the blocking element frontward until the blocking element moves to a blocked position, at this time, the second supporting plates depart from the paper pressing element, the paper pressing element is supported on the first supporting plates, the paper falls down to make a front end of the paper against the blocking element by its own gravity, then the first paper supply tray continues to move frontward to make the first supporting plates depart from the paper pressing element to make the paper pressing element fall downward to press the paper, then the first and second paper supply trays move rearward and then make the paper pressing element raise upward by guide of the first tilting surfaces.
