HP8710- Document Jam in the Automatic Document Feeder- but nothing is there!

HP Recommended

HP 8710 all-in-one.  Says "original is jammed in the document feeder. Open the over, remove and reload the original."  There is NOTHING there.  I checked everywhere, I cleaned the rollers, I unplugged the machine from the wall and unplugged the cord from the back.   Now I can't even make a copy or scan from the flatbed either.  I tried HP support and when they did the diagnostics, they  said there was a document jam in the Automatic Document Feeder, but there is NOTHING there.   And now the indicator screen won't even let me make a copy. . It just has the "Original is jammed" message on it.   What do I try now?

@INYH, Welcome to the HP Support Community!


I'm afraid a sensor in the printer has gone bad.
