Thanks for the response, I am taking so much time to reply you because I was just doing some research on this problem. As you have cleaned the jammed paper completely and as you can see that the cartridges do not move, the reason behind this problem can be only one thing and it is the sensor. Which I have confirmed from man other sources. Unfortunately, there is only one solution for this problem and it is the replacement of the sensor and as the part is not a user replaceable part , you have to send the printer to any repair shop. But, before that please make sure there is not a single bit of paper left on the cartridge path.
