Im having the same problem, will print on normal paper but when I try to print onto Glossy paper it comes up with paper jam,or paper not loaded properly is anyone else hjaving this problem? Please help!!
An Epson service man (he was VERY kind to suggest this) told me to use a weak detergent solution on the rollers, NOT alcohol as that will dry out the material the rollers are made of. Although the problem has recurred a couple of times, it's worth repeating when necessary. I actually activate the 'print' command so it tries to feed in paper, while I FIRMLY hold a piece of fine cotton cloth stretched over a thin plastic ruler, which I hold down where the paper feed grabs its paper. The printer has a couple of tries to feed paper, reports an error message (because there was no paper) and I activate it again, thus exposing the WHOLE of the feed wheel to the cleansing cloth! WORTH A TRY!
I own a PictureMate Epson personal photo lab. It has been sitting on my desk for over 1 year with the message Error:Paper is jammed in the printer. Remove the jammed paper, then press (OK). I have done this, many times, I have talked to a "solution Person" and unfortunately they have told me it can't be fixed. I am just warning anyone else, not to buy this product. I have printed less than 100 pictures and it now doesn't work anymore. Just DON'T BUY THIS EPSON PRODUCT
My CX4800 developed the same problem. It was an excellent machine until then. I tried everything I could think of, and finally decided it must be the rather large feed in rollers at the right of the paper bin (one below and one above the paper) that had worn too smooth to pull the paper in. It works fine if I will give the sheet a "push" when it starts to go down - but who has time to stand there and push each piece in! It would really be nice if Epson would provide us with inexpensive replacement rollers and instructions for installing them. Guess they had rather we just buy a new printer - which I did, a CX7800, only to find that it will not take the heavy weight photo paper. :-(
Pape jams is caused by either a physical jam or an unknown printer error to determine which one is it follow this steps.
1.If it just came out of the box make sure that before you turn it on of connect to the computer that all tapes has been removed and no foreign objects is within the printer when you lift up the scanner part of the unit.
2. It may not make sense but one of the common mistakes is that the left side of the printer is not being check throughly I would like you to double-check in the area.
3. Lastly, if you really don't see anything that maybe cause this error message unfortunately, I would recommend that you contact Epson or the place where you have purchased it to get a replacement. Its not advisable that you tear apart the printer becuase that woukd void the manufacturer's one-year warranty.
