HP J6480 - Paper jam <not>

Hoping we have some HP printer jockeys here.  Here's our favorite HP J6480 AIO that suddenly comes up with "Paper Jam - clear paper path and press OK".  Well, there wasn't a jam (that I know of) and we've pulled the thing apart as much as we can.  Main Clamshell, ADF, duplexer, feed trays, exit port, dismout and remount the tanks.  Took a can of compressed air to it to eject any little bits that might remain.  The alert appears even if disconnected from the PC.  Did a soft reset and a hard factory default reset.  Didn't help.

Is this thing headed for the recycle bin?

OK, well, it is what it is, right?  These devices are truly expendable these days and you're right, there's cost/benefit to consider.

Was just looking for a little confirmation.  And you've done that, so thanks a million.
