Hi uwegrzynowicz!


Here's a link to thorough troubleshooting steps for clearing that jam/message:


It sounds like you've been through a fair portion of the steps in there already, but you may be able to find something in there that you haven't tried yet (and the steps in this document give you the best odds of resolving the issue, by far). Give it a shot, and let me know whether or not it's successful!
