If the issue remains:

  1. Remove the card hopper
  2. Pop the lid slightly open (not all the way - just not clicked shut)
  3. Press Menu
  4. Choose Move Card
    • Pressing the UP arrow button will rotate the feed roller also (Note: it will not rotate forwards in this mode - only backwards)

Can you hear the motor when you press the up arrow? Can you see the roller rotate when you press the up arrow?
