With most laser printers whenever I see this problem It means that you had a paper jam but did not get all of it out. something is impeding the straight flow of the vellum. Most likely there is a piece of vellum stuck somewhere inside that you cant find.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The accordion folds indicate all the types of paper are striking something beyond the feed point. There is probably a scrap of paper stuck in the machine, no doubt out of sight and hard to find. If you are able to locate and remove the obstruction, operation should be back to normal
General tip: If the paper tears when you pull a jam out of the printer, spread the paper out and make sure you have all of the pieces. A small shred left inside can cause another jam.
"I also can the drum" - does this mean you discarded the printer cartridge? I've never seen a cartridge cause a jam. Usually an accordion-fold jam in this area is the result of the fuser rollers not turning or a torn fuser sleeve. A jam without an accordion fold indicates that the paper did not make it into the toner deposition area soon enough - this could be a problem with the pickup roller or the next set of rollers. Worn or dirty rollers can work intermittently before they quit completely.
Also, check the paper detection flag to make sure it isn't hanging up (this is a black plastic tab that sticks into the paper path just before the
paper goes under the cartridge, and is pushed up or down by the paper). Look for the U-shaped optical detector that is interrupted by this flag, and make sure it isn't blocked by foreign material.
Try placing some standard paper behind the vellum paper, it might assist in holding correctly while printing.
Being so thin the paper I would guess is folding up under the print head? if so look through all the printer properties, under the maintenance section there may be a "set Plattern Gap" (set to wide) or "Thick Paper Setting"
Selecting these raises the print head up to allow for thicker paper to pass through, but can also help thinner paper from folding up under the heads.
I hope one of these works for you.
I have found that with laser printers that have an occasional "crinkle" problem that "fanning" the paper does alleviate the problem ... but it will not if there is an actual feed/hardware problem with the rollers
THIS IS TRUE OF ANY TYPE OF PAPER, MOST MANUFACTURE RECOMMAND THERE OWN BRAND OF PAPER FOR SPECAIL USES OF THERE MACHINE AND IF YOU USE A GENERIC TYPE OF PAPER YOU WILL HAVE THIS PROBLEM, PAPER WILL NOT PICKUP, PAPER MAY JAM ALOT, PAPER PRINT QUILITY MAYBE BE POOR, INK MAY MEER, TOMERS ARE SOME OF THE PROBLEM TO ALONG WITH PAPER ISSUES ALSO, YOU MAY HAVE TO USE A THICKER OR THINNER VELLLUM PAPER, CALL A REPOGRAPHIC STORE , ONE DO BLUE PRINT PRINTING, MAP COPIERS, ASK AND SEE IF THEY HAVE ANY OTHER IDEAS
Ran into the same problem. The problem is that the printer's paper sensor sees through the vellum and therefore doesn't think any paper moved into the print position. To use vellum, fold up 1/4" edge on a standard peice of print paper and place the leading edge of the vellum under the flap. Place the paper and vellum into the printer and print. The printer will pull in the paper and the vellum together. Make the paper fold tight and straight to prevent jamming. You will need to feed one sheet at a time. Also the Epson inks take a long time to dry on vellum. I let mine dry overnight.
Could be that it is printing a legal print on letter paper. This causes a timing error which appears as a jam. If it is accordion folding behind the exit rollers the paper could be hanging on the exit sensor flag. If it accordian folds in the fuser then the fuser needs replacing.
If it?s always in the same spot then you can narrow your search for the problem.
-Look where the leading edge of the paper is getting jammed up for an obstruction, especially if the paper is folded in an accordion fashion. Look closely, I?ve fixed many a paper jam by pulling out a corner of a page stuck in a recess.
-If the paper path is clear then the next thing I would suspect is the paper you are using.
-Try new paper that isn?t bowed, folded or curled. Before inserting into the paper try flex it back and forth along the width and length, then insert making sure to slide the two side guides and the back guide until they fit snugly against the stack of paper.
-Other things to check are the rollers where the leading edge of the paper is getting stuck. Make sure they are clean.
-Also make sure your toner cartridge is inserted into the printer correctly. If you have a spare try using that, sometimes cartridges can drag on the paper.
