Question about Epson Office Equipment & Supplies
My printer switches on and then tells me there is a paper jam when their is not!!no paper at all jammed
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")

I have the same exact problem of paper half torn removed but I can not see the other half anywhere. The printer has hardly worked for at the most six pages and now showing paper jam error. How do I fix it?

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.

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.
