SOURCE: Paper Jam Error on HP 2015
For whatever reason the printer internal programming became corrupt showing that there is a paper jam. After checking the paper path and a quick can of air sprayed into the tracks, I proceeded to attempt a Cold Reset.
1) Remove the paper tray.
2) Remove toner cartridge.
3) Unplug USB.
3) While plugged in to power, turn off the printer, hold down the 'GO' button and power it back on. Continue to hold for more than 5 seconds but less than 15.
4) Reinstall the tray (be sure to check the paper level indicator is operating when you add paper to the tray. The lever should move up as it fills with paper)
Reconnect the USB cable (make sure you are using a thick USB cable and not a cheap thin one, very important. Make sure the printer is not plugged into a backup batter either) Never plug a printer into backup power.
I noticed that the computer did not recognize the device when connected which prompted me to contact HP support.
HP Support is shipping out Item # CE517AB - Font/DIMM Program for me to install in the printer to most likely reinstall the firmware.
I will post back if this works to flash the firmware or just waste some time.

SOURCE: How to Clear carriage jam
Dear it's the carriage jam error. so it mean that your carriage is jam not paper. so open the printer where you insert the cartridge. check whether it is jam or what . cartridge carrier is jam kindly turn off the printer and try to move the cartridge head by hand very gently and if seems to be stuck than check for anything which abort him to move freely so than might be anything like dust or else. when you get success in moving the head put some machine lubricant on the rod on which head moves and check it ok.

SOURCE: HP 7680 paper jam
I spent 21/2 hours with the HP tech support - with their recomendation to upgrade my 14 month old computer to the bigger model because the screen reads "paper jam". I have had this printer replaced once already, 1 week after I received it for a defective doc feeder. I decided to take things into my own hands - First of all, no paper was ever located in the paper jam area. Several soft resets by shutting down for 20+ seconds, then pressing #6 at start up resulted in any improvement - the screen continued to read "paper Jam....." the HP tech was unable to offer any practical suggestions.
I turned the machine upside down after removing the document feeder and examined the rollers at the back of the rear tray where the paper jam was supposed to be. I noticed that there was some black residue on the gears and although the machine was off and unplugged - the rollers / gears would not roll freely and seemed to get stuck. I cleaned them thoroughly with an old but clean toothbrush and water. (don't grease the gears - I've heard it eats the plastic) - until the rollers would freely roll when I moved the gray rubber rollers.
Returned the machine to correct position - and turned it on - "paper jam" message returned but the machine was sounding different than it had - so I did another soft reset (unplug from wall and printer for 20 seconds, then holding #6 for a few seconds while plugging back in and now I can print. The printer went through its maintenance cycle and did a realignment. I can print and everything is working fine at this time.
I hope that this will help someone. I couldn't find any information on how to repair the printer and HP seems to be all about producing junk and convincing you to "upgrade" at a cost of $2-300. When this one does finally go - I won't be buying an HP!
The 7680 jams a lot and the document feeder has a lot to be desired. It has trouble feeding straight and if there is a jam anywhere in the machine - it is always difficult removing the paper without tearing it and creating more problems and waste of time.

Check side ADF grips are correctly setup, paper tray is not mis-aligned, remove if poss, and replace to check.
check you printer's properties paper size is set correct for the paper used,
open the back door check for loose particles or paper,
4 x Feed rollers in the back, revolve and clean with distilled water.
wait till dry, try printing again
Disconnect the power cord from the product.
Press and hold # and 3 while reconnecting the power cord.
When reset displays, release both buttons.
Try printing again.
Hope this helps
