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

I had the same problem and just talked with HP technician Neeta and she showed me how to fix it. It's a bit convoluted. In essence you have to clear the print spooler. Here is what she told me.
First you have to be clear that there really ISN'T a paper jam by printing a test message this back door way.
Neeta : The USB cable should be disconnected. Neeta: To print a self-test page, press and hold the Power button. Raise and lower the printer cover four times. Release the Power button, and the self-test page prints
If the sel-test page prints, this means you truly do not have a paper jam. Next, clear the print spooler
Neeta : The USB cable should be disconnected.Neeta : Now click on start->RUN.Neeta : Then type "services.msc".Neeta : Then it will open the services window.Neeta : Now please look for the option "print spooler. Neeta : Okay, now , please right click on the option "print spooler" and click on stop then click on start, 3 times.

I just completely took apart my front feeder unit because I just didn't believe there was a paper stuck in there. Sure enough, when I got to the bottom (an hour later) there it was- and it wasn't from the paper that was jammed. It must have been floating around in there waiting to get in just the right place to block the little sensor wiggly thing.
After I got it out, I realized there was a MUCH easier solution--- get some heavy paper (I used cardboard folded in half) and manually feed it through the paper feeder in the front assembly by hand. You can see where it should go in (it's where the paper from Tray 1 goes in) and out (it lines up with the belt in the main body of the printer) and there is a large gear on the side you can turn to help you get it through (just turn the gears until you feel the one that grabs your heavy paper.)
As it comes out, it should have your stuck paper with it.

Unplug the power cord and while doing that make sure printer is powered on i mean do not turn off the printer using the power button. When you unplug the power cord than press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Than release the power button and connect the power cord and then try to print.
