Epson Stylus C62, Yanked overfed amount of paper from printer. Printer was jammed. Paper would not feed. After yanking out paper the carridge will not return, paper wont feed, printer shuts doown after a motor screams for a few seconds. Is this repairable?

Probably not - a belt was either yanked out of its cog or a roller was popped out of its bearings. Since you have nothing left to lose just dismantle the printer (only a screwdriver is needed) and try to put the parts back together. If you fail, just get a new one.

Tray won't feed paper

Before you buy a new one. Bring your printer to any Computer Services which they have to check your printer, maybe if possible they fix it immediately.
Any noise or paper get stuck are on mechanical problem. This is no software problem it's just only mechanical problem feeding paper on it.
If the technical have to say buy a new one then you go buy but if still have a chance then your lucky on it.
Don't be bothered any problem with your devices are solved and just to listen somebody who share some ideas to you.
Hope this might help you a short tip.
Good luck!

trouble faxing and scanning

If you havent already tried this, I would completely un-install all of the lexmark software, go to the lexmark web site, dowload all the latest software for the printer and re-install and see if that corrects the issue first.
hope this helps,

Try this, remove all paper and bins.
then get alcohol and a clean cloth, clean all rollers and tires.
You will get a lot of black dirt and stuff off after cleaning

if it is only temporary then tires will need replacing.

Epson Cx3200 paper jam

Then there is something stuck in the paper feed path which is holding up the sensor flag making it think there is paper in it.

Or maybe the sensor flag has been broken off by yanking paper out the wrong way when it gets stuck.

Get your vacuum cleaner and stick the hose down the paper feed path and see if it suck out a push pin, piece of paper paper, fur ball, eraser, coin, toe nail, false eye lash etc (all of which I have removed from machines with "paper jams")
