Question about Printers & Copiers
I opened the printer inside but cannot find any peace of paper.
This is a notorious problem of the HP 7000 OfficeJet series, the last place we often look are the actual gears which feed the paper.
If you can't or wont' return the printer to the dealer or service center, then be prepared to follow the paper feed and using a pair of needle nose pliers, see how easily every feed roller turns by using the pliers and gripping the rubber wheels and rotating them in the direction of the paper feed
Any of the rollers that turn reluctantly or require excessive force have likely become jammed with paper shards in their gears and using a flashlight, look for any slivers or pieces of paper in the gear teeth.
Since the HP's are underpowered, all it takes is a paper sliver barely thicker than a few strands of hair to foul up the mechanism which appears to be as large as jammed **** to the printer sensors which is why you're recieving the Paper Jam warning despite the fact you've cleaned very visible sheet from the device.
Use any sharp instrument to clean those shards from the gears and close the lids to see if your Paper Jam errors have been cleared.
My company has hundreds of satellite offices and this is the most common issue since a paper jam is hard to clear in these devices, people often have to just rip the paper out backwards and it those "shrapnels of paper" that end up fouling the mechanisms.
An example of how to clear these gears is at an Amazon product review found here:
