    The cartriages have all been pulled and reinstalled twice. The note on the screen says there is a cartriage jam and top open the print cartriage door and clear jam. I see nothing wrong in the cartriages.

Open the printer so the catridges allign so you can take them out like you were replacing them. Once it's in a position that you can take them out, unplug the power from the unit. Take the cartridges out, close the unit and plug the unit back in. Open it up, put the cartridges back in after they align to allow it. Close the unit.

If that doesn't work, uninstall the printer and reinstall the printer drivers again.

Let me make sure I am understanding your problem and getting all the information. You have a cartridge jam. Have you tried removing and reinserting the cartridges? How long have you owned this printer and how long have you had this problem?
Thank you,

My indicator is showing a paper jam and I have cleared all paper that I can see from the feed area. It still instructs to clear the paper jam. Do I need to try to get inside the box and if so - how should...

Once some printers report paper jam, you most must go through certain procedures, even if you have removed the jammed paper, for the printer to print again. So I suggest you follow this procedure:-

i. Put off the printer and unplug it from its power source.
ii. Open all the covers/shutters on the printer (usually you will find one in the front or top and one at the back of the printer).
iii. Site the paper (if any) that has jammed and pull it out in the opposite direction of its movement. Do not pull in the direction it was coming out. (Pulling the paper in the opposite direction is important for the printer’s mechanism. Printer must be off). Never pull out paper from a printer when the printer is powered on.
v. Close all covers at the top, front or back.
vi. Power on your printer and you should be able to print again.
