I have an Epson Workforce Pro WF 3820 and I have an internal paper jam

It cannot be accessed from the back or by removing the paper tray. I can see the tiniest piece of paper from the front but it cannot be reached by tweezers

Put your printer on the left side and take off your paper compartment.
After that, let me know!:)

You need to take them off and clean.

I can move them up enough to clean them

It is okay, but you need to replace it too.

So nice!:)
Now, we need to get the back side of the printer.
Please, take this detail off and check if everything is clean.
Check that nothing is blocking your paper and that the rollers are spinning smoothly.

That's done
