Check the HP support pages, but as HP inkjets turn the paper over internally it means their weight limit is likely lower than others.
Also check you have loaded paper face down so it is glossy side UP as it turns over for printing.
Their site quotes a max weight of 200GSM for thick stock

This is a budjet printer and ity's not really made for anything ohter than standard weight 'copier' typer paper.
66 lb. paper is equivalent to 240G paper here and that doesn't go though machines easily unless the paper feed is from the back.
HP printers traditionally roll the paper around a roller and feed it back on itself.
This paper (it's almost card) is too thick to go around the roller.
If you want to print a lot of this paper you are going to have to buy a new printer. I would recomment a Canon MP560.
A "paper jam" means that there is some paper or a piece of paper somewhere inside the printer, in the paper rollers. Turn the printer OFF. Open the printer and carefully look for a piece of paper or a paper page half-folded inside. SLOWLY pull the paper out. Replace the cover and turn on again.
Driver could be corrupt. Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off.
I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with
the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the
printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
There's a couple things that can cause recurring paper jams. Most often, all the pieces of the jammed paper aren't removed. This video shows you where to look to find all the jammed paper. It also offers some other solutions as well. If the solutions in this video don't work, the printer is likely broken.
