8500 A Plus fails print head alignment then jams paper

OFFICEJET PRO 8500 A PLUS
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

WHen I turn on the printer it does the print head alignment. It makes some noises then takes a long time to do the alignment. After awhile the paper jams while feeding. I clean out the jam clear the error and then the alignment fails. THen it wants to do alignemnt over again with same results. 

IF i try to print anything the printer still jams. the screen states that is aligning print heads and then jams.

Have new inks in all slots.

I cant get that far. WHen the paper feeds into the printer to do the alignment etc. It jams. It jams when printing anything. IT get halfway into the printer from the front tray.

8500 A Plus fails print head alignment then jams paper

HI thanks for your answers.

I dl the firmware update. RAn it and it finds the printer but the status is not applicable for printer and I cannot select the printer for update. I connected directly to printer and same thing. . It does not work thru printer web services either, says it cannot connect. But the printer wifi works to laptop.

I factory reset no fix.

Any way do update thru printer usb port?  Full pritner reset?
