I have messed around with it, loaded a few sheets, then loaded a whole stack....restarted my computer, but it still doesn't think there is any paper in there. Any ideas?

Thanks!

It sounds that the sensor that responsible in detecting papers to be feed in the printer is malfunctioning. I can suggest some work around if this thing won't work then you need to send your printer to service.
Please check for any obstruction inside the printer like paper, plastic, tapes. Turn on and turn off the printer and make sure that you load the paper correctly.
If the issue still present then its a hardware failure. If your printer is under warranty I suggest to call your
printer's manufacturer and have them replaced or if you think buying new printer is more cost effective then buy new printer.

HOW DO I CLEAR THE PAPER JAM 1? I opened all the doors and checked to see if any paper is stuck somewhere. There is nothing to keep it from starting again.


Did you check the fusing section from back door? When you open the rear door you can access the fusing unit (hotest place!!!). Sometimes the paper stacks below the stripping pawls of hot roller and you can't see it easy. Look harder! Pull out the whole paper tray and check below (printer bottom) for paper sheet. Lift upper cover and remove cartridge. You will see little green lever. Lift it up! Look for piece of paper around the little black pawl (paper sensor after registration roller). Restart printer!
Good luck

The Paper Jams

Press the font29.gif paper button to eject the jammed paper. If the error does not clear, turn the printer off, open the printer cover and the CD/DVD guide. Remove all of the paper inside, including any torn pieces, then close the CD/DVD guide. Reload the paper, then press the font29.gif paper button to resume printing.
r_note.gif Note: r_space.gif If you cannot remove a foreign object easily by yourself, do not use force and do not disassemble the printer. Call Epson for assistance.
If your paper jams frequently, check the following:
  • The paper is smooth, not curled or wrinkled.
  • The paper is of high quality.
  • The printable side of the paper is face up in the sheet feeder.
  • The paper stack was fanned before loading.
  • The paper is not loaded above the triangular load-limit mark on the left edge guide.
  • The paper stack fits under the tabs inside the edge guides.
  • The number of sheets in the paper stack does not exceed the limit specified for that media.

Error message says"out of paper" when paper tray is fully loaded


check and make sure that the paper is in near the rollers enough that it senses the paper and picks it up. try lightly pushing the paper down toward the rollers as it is suppose to pull one sheet through the feeder. hopefully, you didnt pull too hard on getting the 'jammed' paper out that it may have caused a misalignment in the feeder. try assisting the paper, that usually fixes it. hope this helps!

I am getting a supply Rec Paper Cassette alarm error. How do i fix this and have it work again.


Hi ..

This error comes when the paper is not loaded properly in the cassette ... Follow the below instructions to load the cassette and I am sure you will not get the error again.

  1. Grip the cassette handle, and pull it out towards you until the cassette comes to a stop.
    remove_cassette_tray.gif


  2. Open a package of paper, and remove the paper stack. small_note.gif black_dot.gif If the paper is curled, uncurl it before placing it in the cassette. Failure to do so will cause paper creases and a paper jam. black_dot.gif 17 lb to 20 lb bond (64 to 80 g/m2 ) paper is acceptable. black_dot.gif The cassette holds up to approximately 500 sheets of 20 lb bond (80 g/m2 ) paper.

  3. Load the paper stack beneath the cassette's length guide (1) and width guide's claw (2).
    load_paper_in_cassette.gif small_note.gif black_dot.gif Make sure that the paper stack does not exceed the length and width guides' claws in the cassette. Failure to do so will cause a paper jam. black_dot.gif Do not load extra paper when there is still paper left in the cassette. black_dot.gif Only load one size of paper into the cassette. Do not load different sizes of paper into the cassette at the same time. black_dot.gif Do not load labels or transparencies into the cassette.

  4. Gently insert the cassette as far as it will go.
small_note.gif black_dot.gif The cassette is for plain paper, colored paper or recycled paper only. Loading other paper in the cassette may cause a paper jam. black_dot.gif If copies are curled, or a paper jam occurs, remove the paper stack from the cassette. Turn it over and then place it in the cassette. black_dot.gif If you load paper while making copies, do not load a different paper size.
Closing the cassette When closing the cassette, make sure to push it in completely as far as it will go. If copying is performed when the cassette is not pushed in completely, it will cause a paper jam.

If copy paper is sticking out of the cassette Sometimes, when you pull out the cassette, paper may stick out, as shown in the illustration below. Make sure that the paper is neatly loaded into the cassette, before you push the cassette back into the main unit.

Paper feed grabs more than one sheet


Try fanning your paper several times. Take that nice neat pile of paper in your hands and wiggle it so that your thumb fans through the edge of the whole stack. Do this on both edges so that the stack of paper is slightly less perfect. You can also gently fold the whole stack slightly in both directions. Do this every time you add fresh paper. It should only take a few seconds.

If the paper is lodged too far into the printer and can't be removed:
  1. Press the power button to turn the printer off.
  2. Pull firmly on the paper to remove it. If you can't reach the paper because it is too far in, raise the front cover and remove the paper from the front of the printer.
  3. Close the front cover.
  4. Press the power button to turn the printer back on.
  5. Resend your document to print.
Ensure that:
  • The paper is a recommended paper for inkjet printers.
  • You do not force the paper down into the printer when you load it. For example, if you are loading letter or A4 size paper, the top edge of the paper should extend above the top of the sheet feeder.
  • The printer is on a flat, level surface.
  • The left paper guide is against the side of the paper.
  • You do not load too much paper in the sheet feeder. Depending on the thickness of your paper, the sheet feeder can hold up to 100 sheets of paper.
  • The left paper guide does not cause the paper to bend in the sheet feeder.
  • Your printer feeds regular paper as expected. If regular paper feeds without causing problems, load the envelopes vertically against the right side of the sheet feeder. Make sure the paper guide is against the side of the envelopes.
  • Envelopes or the appropriate specialty papers are selected in the printer driver.
  • You are using a paper or envelope size supported by your printer.
Important: Your application may not be designed to print envelopes. For help, consult the documentation that accompanied your application.

SCX-4216 "No Paper" message


I've had this happen to my scx4521f a few times. I think I had too much paper in it. Or maybe it was poorly loaded paper. Take the stack of paper out and turn it around so you have no dings or dents on the inward facing side. You need to make sure that the paper is stacked evenly. Good luck. And now I will post my problem.
