Customer Question
I can't seem to...

I can't seem to locate the cause of a paper jam and I don't know what parts of the printer are removable to check. I have removed paper from the obvious places including the back and the top.

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand and model of your printer?

HP office jet pro 8720

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your OfficeJet?

About an hour

Technician's Assistant: When did you last update the Operating System (OS) on the computer or device you're printing from?

I was printing from copies

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Printer Expert to know before I connect you?

I don't think so
