To remove a paper jam from inside of the printer please do the following:
1. Turn off the printer.

2. Disconnect the power cord and any other cable.
3. Remove jammed paper from the following areas.
- Ink or toner cartridge access area
Open the access door, move the carriage if necessary, and then remove any jammed paper. On some printers, you might need to remove the toner cartridge and/or imaging drum to access the paper jam.
- Under the paper path cover
If your printer has a paper path cover behind the carriage, remove the cover, and then remove any jammed paper.
- Input tray
Pull out the input tray, and then remove any jammed paper.
- Bottom cleanout door
If your printer has a bottom cleanout door, carefully lift the printer and look under it, and then remove any jammed paper from the bottom cleanout.
- Rear access door
Remove the paper path cover if necessary.
4. Replace any parts that were removed, and close any open doors.
5. Reconnect the power cord, and other cables that were disconnected.
6. Turn on the printer.
Try this, please, and tell me the result.
