First, rechargeable cartridges are the bane of many HP models. I have never been fortunate enough to find one that works (and I have worked on many printers and computers over the years).
Second, I recommend that you double check and get some canned air to blow out the carriage and anywhere else you can reach without dis-assembly. Many times there is an extremely small piece of paper or even lint that will cause the paper jam signal to be sent and disable an otherwise perfectly fine printer.
I understand that you're receiving what you believe to be a 'false' paper jam on your HP Photosmart C6280 All-in-One Printer. I would like to work with you today with resolving this issue. Paper jams can be real or false. The product might report a paper jam even when there is no jammed paper. A false paper jam may also be the result of having a bad paper jam at a point in time and that bad jam causing a hardware issue to the paper sensor or rollers. I am going to provide you with some additional troubleshooting steps that apply to both real and false paper jams. You did state that you already checked the paper pathway inside the printer and failed to find any evidence of paper being stuck, but please run the step-by-step troubleshooting below, even if you have already run some of the steps.
