My printer had a paper jam that I believe is completely cleared, but still getting the error light flashing when unit is powered back up. How do you get inside this beast to check for any further pieces of paper?

Konica Minolta Magicolor 2400/2500 series printer "X cartridge not installed"
One of the most frustrating features of the Magicolor 2400/2500 series of printers is the very annoying X Cartridge not installed message
This error message can occur at any time with both original cartridges and or refilled cartridges. It is caused by either toner / paper dust covering either the chip on the toner cartridge or dust covering the chip sensor inside the printer. It can also be caused by a faulty chip reader inside the printer.
The printer uses a carousel to rotate the toner cartridges. Dust and toner can easily spill as the cartridges rotate. The error can appear at any time but seems to be most annoying after a paper jam or other error. It is also important to make sure that the cartridges themselves are clear of toner dust. Pay particulair attention to any copper contacts on the cartridge.
There are rollers that cling on to the paper and move it through the
machine. When the rollers are worn down they do not grip the paper. For a short
fix you can get something rough like sandpaper, brillo pad, etc, and gently
scratch the rollers to give them some traction. This will temporarily solve your
problem until you can get the rollers replaced.
