I had the same problem. If you call Epson, they will send you another printer out. I did this, and they didn't even ask me to send the old one back. You do have to have the serial number handy though. My suggestion is to call Epson.

The reason: number one it is an Epson and all their printers have very weak plastic gears in the paper loader mechanism that break easily when you unjam a paper jam. You have to treat these printers like fine China. That is why you see allot of Epson printers Refurbished.

Buy a Canon if you want at least three years of no problems with their paper loading mechanism. Almost any other printer manufacture builds a better printer than Epson, Sorry for the bad news.

Usually you just buy a new printer when you have these paper loading problems, also try to see if the printer is jammed still with a piece of paper, or maybe some dirt or lint and hair, blow it out with compressed air and make sure the rubber roller paper feeder is turning, if not then you can buy a new printer for cheap these days. Usually a new printer cost the same as the replacement ink for the printer, so buy a new printer. Printers now a days are disposable especially Epson.

Paper not feeding for epson nx400

Check the following:

  • If paper doesn't feed, remove it from the sheet feeder. Reload it against the right side, behind the tab, then press in the tab on the edge guide and slide it against the paper. Make sure the paper is not above the arrow mark inside the edge guide.

  • If multiple pages feed at once, remove the paper from the sheet feeder, fan the edges to separate the sheets, then reload it.

  • If the paper doesn't eject fully, you may have set the wrong paper size. Press the c:\users\home\appdata\local\temp\msohtmlclip1\01\clip_image001.gif Stop button, then open the scanner and remove the paper. Select the correct paper size when you reprint.

  • If it's wrinkled when it ejects, the paper may be damp or too thin. Load new paper.

  • Make sure you use new, smooth, high-quality paper, that is not curled, creased, old, or too thin. Make sure to load it printable side up.

  • Do not load paper with holes punched in it for insertion in a binder.

  • Make sure you load only up to the recommended number of sheets. If you're printing on both sides of the paper, try loading fewer sheets.

Paper type

Load up to
this many sheets

Plain paper

Approximately 120

Epson Bright White Paper
Epson Presentation Paper Matte


Epson Photo Paper Glossy
Epson Premium Photo Paper Glossy
Epson Ultra Premium Photo Paper Glossy
Epson Premium Photo Paper Semi-gloss


Epson Premium Presentation Paper Matte
Epson Premium Presentation Paper Matte Double-Sided
Epson Photo Quality Self-Adhesive Sheets
Epson Iron-On Cool Peel Transfer Paper


If the paper jams, do the following:

1. Gently pull any jammed paper out from the output tray or sheet feeder.

2. To eject the jammed paper, try turning the Epson Stylus NX400 off and then back on.

If that doesn't work and paper is stuck inside, turn off the Epson Stylus NX400. Open the scanner, remove the jammed paper and torn pieces, close the scanner, and turn the Epson Stylus NX400 back on.

ADF wont feed the paper through the printer

You can load up to 30 sheets of plain paper in the Artisan 800 ADF. If the ADF doesn't feed the paper, check the following.

1. Make sure that you are loading plain paper only without a holes. 3-hole punched paper is not supported by this printer.

2. Load paper not exceed 30 sheets.

3. Open the ADF and check for any jammed paper or foreign object that is blocking the paper feeding path.

4. Check if the BIG GREEN ADF indicator is lit when you load paper in the ADF.

If the issue persists, your printer will require service. You can contact the Epson for warranty if your printer still under warranty. If your warranty expires, look for an a service center that can repair your printer.

Epsom tx110 wont feed paper

Try to check for any obstruction. Fan the paper as well on the paper tray. Closely check the mechanism as well when it acts like grabbing the paper. If all fails. Call Epson for a replacement.
Hope this helps.

Ink cartridges are all full, but when I print, it acts as if it's printing but nothing appears on the paper.

  1. Turn off the Stylus CX.

  2. Load letter-size paper in the sheet feeder.

  3. Press the cp_button_48_er.gif ink and cp_button_1.gif On buttons together and hold them down for about 3 seconds.

    The Stylus CX turns on and prints a test pattern, which includes a nozzle check. Shown below are some examples of what the nozzle check may look like.

Printer will not feed/accept paper.

Front LCD reads error "Check Paper & Retry" When paper is inserted and loaded correctly and machine is reclosed the printer then initializes then reverses the feed of the paper and is ejected and error continues to reappear.
