Re: There is a paper jam in the ADF... I have a hp 2840
The top cover piece at the left-hand end of the ADF just lifts up. Put your fingers under the edge where the paper feeds into the ADF reader and lift gently on only the plastic cover itself. It is hinged on the leftmost outside of the reader mechanism. Once that cover is lifted then the main feed roller is exposed, and it also just swings up out of the way to the left to provide easy access to the feed path. You will likely also have to lift up the entire ADF to gain access to the flat glass flatbed read platten area to access the remainder of your original.

Just fixed my problem today. It was the ADF assembly motor. The spur gear had cracked open where it can no longer grip tightly to the center rod when the motor spins. I bought a new motor assembly from CompassMicro for the total amount of $23 and my printer is back in running order like normal again. Beats taking it to a repair center and get ripped!
