Feeder won't work

Unit indicates paper jam when trying to use the auto feeder. I have opened ever component of the printer and also blown out areas as best possible and do not see any paper jams or pieces of paper stuck. Took off back component, checked wheels, checked inside where ink cartridges are. Any recommendations?

You can't always see a small scrap of paper that is holding down a paper sensor in the paper path. What I try first is pushing some stiff thin flexible plastic in from the back into the paper path. You can also use a cut up piece of file folder. That will generally push out unseen bits of paper or other objects. I have found things like bugs, paper clips, credit cards, puzzle pieces.
