Make sure all paper has been removed from the paper path.
Even a small scrap will cause a jam.
The other thing you may want to do is clean the paper rollers with alcohol.
This cleans any paper dust that has gathered on the rollers, and allows better paper movement.
I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy
paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print
button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it
will feed through the printer. The reason for this is in some cases I
have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this
way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps.Bud
That is usually caused by the paper feed rollers being cover with paper dust. Take a clean cotton pad and alcohol and clean the rollers :turninig each roller as you clean it. if it has a rear dor, open it to get better access to the rollers.

Clearing paper jams
Paper jams can occur for a variety of reasons but are usually paper related. Follow the steps below to clear the paper jam:
Turn off the all-in-one and unplug the power cord. With the power off, the paper feed rollers will turn.
Open the rear access door of the all-in-one by pressing in on the left side of the access door and then pulling it toward you.
All paper jams must be removed by pulling the paper out the back of the all-in-one using the rear access door. Pulling the paper out the front of the all-in-one rotates the paper feed rollers in the wrong direction and can lead to additional problems.
Figure 1: Rear access door
Inspect the pressure rollers on the rear access door and verify that they are clean and turn freely. Clean the rollers if needed with a soft towel lightly moistened with water. If the rollers do not turn freely, replace the rear access door.
If under warranty, contact HP to obtain a replacement part.
Click How to buy on this page to order replacement parts.
From the rear access door opening, gently pull the jammed paper free.
Remove the remaining paper from the paper supply tray. Discard any paper that is damaged or crumpled and then re-stack and reload the paper into the paper supply tray.
Do not continue to push the paper in after some resistance is felt. If the paper is pushed in too far, more than one page will feed into the all-in-one at a time.
Reattach the rear access door by inserting the two pins on the right of the door into the holes for them (as shown in Figure 3 below) and then pressing in gently but firmly on the left side.

Reconnect the power cord to the unit and turn the unit on.
