Hello,

After clearing a paper jam, the printer lights up like a christmas tree indicating a general error "E". I'm convinced there is no paper residue left. However, I tried to take it apart to make sure. I was unsuccessful with taking it apart. I know it will cost more to repair than purchase a new one. Any suggestions on taking it apart and verifying there is no paper residue or getting to the cause of the general error? Help.
