if you see brown marks on the center top of your page then its your feed roller... hp feed rollers come out easy... Get some rubbing alcohol or hand sanitizer solution and clean with a paper towel... Make sure to dry your feed rollers then put them back in... that should clear up your issue... if that still does not work you may need to replace feed rollers
Normally the paaper gets jammed into the rollers and the drives and could be easily released if you can use the copy keys to forward the drive.There could be also paper lodged in the feed rollers or the inner roller could have jammed into. If so you will have to release the holding screws of the roller and remove off the paper. If the dispaly is showing paper jammed there is also the possibility that the paper detect in optocoupler sensor is faulty. If so check and replace this which is found at the paper feed on. Once the display shows a release the printer should work . Hope you try out. Good day
Try putting Isopropyl alcohol on the feed rollers. These rollers become hard and smooth with time and cause all sorts of paper feed problems. You can find isopropyl alcohol at any drug store(it is rubbing alcohol).
Reinstalling the printer is related the Software.
If the paper gets physically jammed than its the driver setting issue or hardware issue.
Check if two sheets get jammed or only one sheet.
If it is two sheets than printer is picking up multiple sheets and paper gets jammed.
If the printer is jamming a single sheet than remove the Tray and look there is rubber roller inside if there are marks or lines on that rubber roller or if the roller roller is worn out than that rubber roller called as paper pickup roller need to be replaced.
If that looks fine than try to priny using manual feed and if the problem persists from manual feed too than try another toner cartridge
If the problem is not from Manual feed Tray that Replace the main Tray with known good Tray and check if the issue resolved.
clean the paper feed rollers with soap and water damp cloth take paper tray out use flashlight to locate rollers also clean registration roller under the drum check and see if u have any broken gear teeth on your fusing assemby also if after cleaning it works i recommend u replace feed rollers
Take one of those flat plastic rulers and push it through all over.. so that any forein ripped paper whatever, clears the way.. The paper is supposed to buckle on entry.. That's how it's designed. It could be a timing issue.. when the paper is fed in it buckles against the timing roller.. the roller turns only when its supposed to. Each sheet stays buckled against the timing roller until it turns, that's how the machine draws only one piece at a time. It's could be the feed clutch.. There's a little magnetic clutch that actuates the feed roller to pull the paper in. when this feed clutch gets weak it barely works or it slips and doesn't pull the paper in at the right time. I've replaced these often on my equipment.. but I've also found that static electricity plays a big role. If your area is too dry, the paper sticks together increasing the resistance, pulling either multiple pages or just too much resistance for the feed rollers.. screwing up the time.. Make all adjustments to the feed rollers first to ensure it's not a huge problem before you start looking for a clutch. Essentially if the paper doesnt make it into the feed roller on time it is a timing issue.. but it's starting from the feed rollers.
I like your pictures.... Have you tried to clean the feed roller with a slittly damp rag with Simple Green or WD-40? You can try that and wipe the extra off. They both clean the rubber roller's. If that works good, that means the feed rollers are worn and need replacing. But you may also need the paper pick-up feed clutch. You said you can still run paper throw the by-pass. Good Luck
