When I'm trying to print, the paper gets jammed inside the printer. I try to remove it, there is a lot of black ink on it. I thought I cleared all the paper and try to print again, but it gets jammed again inside. By the way, all cartridges have a red steady light on. Thank you for your help.

Hi, I'm Sudipto. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply ASAP

It seems from your description that, the waste ink absorber is overflowing or the black cartridge has a leakage. That is why you see the black ink on the jammed paper. Please follow the steps from the link below to clean the feed rollers and let me know, if you are able to complete the job or not?
