I have an old deskjet Office 1220C - the led flashes to keep and it will not grab the paper - help

I'm trying to set up an old HP Deskjet 1220C and LEDS are flashing, saying: there is a paper jam, but there is no paper jam.  I made sure that the back cover is locked, cleaned all rollers, etc., but it still keeps flashing.  Any helpful suggestions would be appreciated.  Thank you!


The page here can help with the paper feeding problems.  Also, open the cover with the power on and make sure that the carriage moves to the position "smiley face", look at the icons on the upper back portion of the printer as shown here.
