Paper Jam

My printer prints ok. However the problem with the printer is that if I print more then 2 or 3 pages, the paper gets jammed in the rollers and the paper will not go foward or back. I have to pull the paper out and the paper get torn because something is griping  the paper and wont let go.  I tried cleaning the rollers but it did not help.  I tried different band of paper and did not help. If I want to print a test page, it will work very well. But  if I need to print more then 2 pages, it gets all jammed up. Is there anything I can do to fix it. I am afraid that the repair cost will cost more than the printer.  I have had the printer over a year and have only used it two or three times before it started doing this.  I cannot take it back to Walmart because it was an open box  item. Please tell me what to do.
