Dell Photo 966 Printer - not feeding paper/rollers not turning

I've been able to keep the back door open and watch as the ptr tries to feed paper. The feed rollers are not turning but usually the white gears do turn. Sometimes those gears don't turn as well. I tore the ptr apart and everything turns by hand. None of the gears are missing any teeth. Thinking maybe the spring clutch on the feed asy is bad since it will turn both directions. Thought those type of spring clutches only turn one way and stop the other. Can't seem to find any parts manuals for this ptr to find a part number. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    This printer is trash. I had it for a year and 2 months and being that the warranty expired they want me to pay $50 every time for tech service. I would rather throw it out and buy a different brand.

3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button.
4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.

7. Turn the printer off.
8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
