I was able to run run a piece of photo paper through a couple of times and printer now seems to be working again. The theory was that running a heavy piece of paper through might help clear little piece of paper that was not visible. The photo paper is less likely to tear if it gets jammed too.

The Jam error is most likely cause by one or more of the sensor flags these are the plastic usually black things hanging along the paper path. One of those are either stuck or broken. Check the path and look for those items.
