Question about Epson Stylus CX4200 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Paper will not feed into the printer.

When pressing print the paper attempts to feed then stops. When paper is pulled back out it is bent slightle in the lower right corner of the paper as looking at the printer from the front. From what I have been reading about this problem could be (Sheet feeder damage). I can't see anything jammed in this area.

    Me too. Probably a roller problem but haven't attempted to fix yet.

    My Epson CX4200 has NEVER fed paper properly for more than 1 or 2 sheets. There doesn't seem to be any way to "push" the paper into the feed mechanism. So the mechanism attempts to feed 1 sheet, but there isn't any paper anywhere close. I gave up trying to make this crappy printer work, and eventually bought another one (HP brand). This CX4200 DOES have an excellent scanner in it, and I do use that all the time. But if anybody has ever figured out a way to get the paper to feed properly, kindly let me know how. Thank you.

I opened up my CX4200 and cleaned the feed rollers with a Q-tip wetted with a bit of cleaner, now it feeds fine. Looked like there was some dried ink splatter on the rubber rollers, that was probably preventing it from gripping the paper properly.

    Printed 47 pages, paper for page 48 started to feed incorrectly & was yanked out. However, LCD keeps saying paper jam even though entire paper was retrieved. Turning machine off, on, examined for any...


    More likely especially if the paper was pulled out backwards, that the paper sensor just before the platen roller is bent or broken. When you pull paper back up thru the feeder it gets caught on this sensor tab and it gets bent, holding it up just like a paper scrap would. If it's broken or you can't locate it to bend it straight, you will need a shop to repair your printer.

    Brother HL 2070N red paper light blinks but won't print.


    Just fixed my printer issue, had the same problem, Would load 1 sheet, then jam, sometimes it won't pull the paper out of the tray, sometimes it would pull the paper to the toner area, but never into the toner, opening and slamming the paper tray while it attempted to load would usually work, but who wants to slam the tray 50 times? I was using Walgreens generic paper, 20lb, took some higher-quality 24lb HP paper and VOILA! It works every time! EVERYONE WHO IS HAVING THIS PROBLEM, CHECK THAT YOU ARE USING 24LB PAPER!!! Brother says 20-24 is acceptible, but sneaking one sheet of 20lb paper about 15 sheets down in a 20 sheet print job and it will stop at it every time, You can feel the difference, less like toilet paper and more like real paper.

    24 LB PAPER! USE IT NOW AND THANK ME LATER!

    Paper will not feed into printer


    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. (On the X83, press the Select 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.
