I have had this exact problem this morning with Epson SX235W.
4 from the end of a print run the feeder grinded to a holt.
I removed paper switched off machine checked for jam but every time I turned it on it span the feed rollers for a few seconds and came back with the error. I tried everything I could find on Google and after 2 hours its was still the same . by now I was sure that this was mechanical failure. In a last ditch attempt I used good old brute force and pushed a thick piece of card through the feed whilst it was turning on . HA !! Jam light goes out, printer works . 3 sheets later I find a very old/inky rubber band has been pushed out with the paper. must have been in there for ages before becoming a problem.
Moral is - there is almost definnatly someting stuck, even if you cant see it.

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")

If this message appears when you turn the printer on it will need a repair, this will be down to a sensor fault.
If this message appears when you try to print Check you are using the correct paper type and size settings, on the printer if being used standalone or via the printer driver if using via a computer.
Also try using a different paper type and brand ideally Epson paper as it is an Epson printer. If the fault continues the printer will need a service.
As this printer was released this year you should be covered by some form of warranty, contact Epson for a service.

SOURCE: printer error paper jam and no paper to be found!

Hello there
You may not see a paper jam.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Also clean The purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, Lexmark, Caonon and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing.

That is where you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it.
It also has an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

So clean all under where the heads are parked and on IP6600D models you can take out the heads just by clipping them out, and then clean well.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Epson xp430 paper jam, but I can't find any jam!

They don't tell lies :>) Even the smallest piece of paper over the sensor will record a jam. This often happens when you have a jam and you pull the paper and it tears a piece off. Open all the doors, remove the paper tray, remove all the toner or cartridges and look with a flashlight. Always pull paper jam paper in the direction it was going, undo tensioner clips if present and pull paper evenly and slowly as not to tear the paper. If you do, keep the paper and find the piece that fits the piece that is missing.

Having said that, see the link

Continual paper jam error on Epson XP-412

There may be shreds of paper stuck deep inside the printer. Sometimes it takes a bright light such as a flashlight to locate them for removal.

Epson 837 printer error

OK, often when removing a paper jam this can happen:

1) - when pulling the jammed paper out you can leave behind a small piece or loosen up another small piece from a previous jam. This piece can then become the 'new' jam by clogging the jam sensor or switch. Use a small flashlight to look done the previous jammed area to see if this is the case.

2) - when pulling the jammed paper out you can 'mis align' or damage the jam sensor (or switch) so that it always registers a jam. this fix may require a technician or repair shop to fix.
