Paper jamming in rx585

My Epson Stylus Photo RX585 has worked fine for about a year, but recently has started to jam. It seems to be jamming at one side, and it makes quite an alarming noise!
Each time it jams I have to open the printer and manually remove the jammed document, which is completely chewed up.
There doesn't appear to be anything caught in the printer to obstruct the paper, but I didn't want to start taking things apart to investigate fully.
Is this a common problem? And if so, how can I stop it from happening?

1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button.
4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
7. Turn the printer off.
8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.

Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

Epson rx585 paper jam message but no paper jammed.. how can i fix it?? tried switching it off unplugging etc and its still the same..


The micro-switch that detects a paper-jam is still detecting a paper-jam.
Either there is paper-dust in the switch, causing the "false-positive" indication,
or the micro-switch is broken, or there really is a paper-jam that you have not detected.

Check the micro-switch, and look again for a paper-jam.
