HP F2480 printer says theres a paper jam, but there isn't one??

My printer keeps saying theres a paper jam and I checked the back access door and there is no paper in there whatsoever? How do I fix it?  Is there a way to reboot it?

My printer is P2055d and I have the same problem. Will the same thing work for me too? And what do you mean by ON button, the one that powers off the printer?
