HP 2600n Ironing transfer paper jammed around top roller
Some ironing transfer paper was used in the HP 2600n printer and it has jammed around the top roller above the 4 print cartridges. Paper is going through but is badly effected by what ever is stuck to the roller. Most of the paper sheet that jammed has been removed but I can see some remnants of paper still stuck around the top roller but cant get to it. Need help identifying how to remove the cover at the top so I can get to the roller to clean it off.

The 2600s have a door in the back that can be removed to gain access to any sheets that may have become jammed. The front panel opens in two stages, the second requiring a button press on the side to gain access. Using gentle pressure and left-to-right motions you can slowly pry the trapped page from the rollers (make sure the printer is off before you begin) Some amount of disassembly may be required if the page becomes torn, but refrain from using sharp objects to pry the paper free. If you are unable to find the jammed sheet, remove the paper drawer and check the feed rollers.
The steps vary by printer. I've got a c7280 installed and the options for me are to click Print > Preferences > Advanced > Mirror image. When you click on Mirror image, you change it from 'off' to 'on'. Click OK to save the setting and print. Be sure to change it back after you're done printing your transfers.

Usually you can print up to about 60lb paper. You may be able to go as high as 90-110 (card stock) if the paper print path is straight thorugh. If you printer has a rear paper door then you can try heavier paper. Usually 40-60 is safe for printer without a rear door/heavy paper path.
The problem is that the heavier paper cannot bend around the rollers inside. So if it is setup to allow heavy paper it runs through flat and out the back instead of curling around and out the top as normal.
The printed page comes through the hot fuser at the top of the printer, through the exit rollers an end up in the exit bin.
We cleared a massive paper jam out of the fuser, by removing the grey surround on top of the printer. The plastic hooks that hold it in place get broken in the process, then you will the jammed paper between the fuser rollers, and the exit rollers. A technician can do it for you, but is unessersarly costly.
