This can be very frustrating as you cannot find any more paper in the printer. However, from personal experience dealing with many many printers, both personal and commercial, it is usually correct if you have found paper before. Try to find ALL internal parts of the printer and look for more paper. Sometimes, you'll find new places you didn't know existed before.

After this, turn off the printer, unplug it, plug it back in, and turn the printer back on. You should have a functional printer afterwards.

    Hi again...Because you have a Vista operating system, go to the HP website and download the new drivers and utility for the Vista. There has been updated downloads for the Vista operating system. Hopefully, this will help.

Torn paper- how can I disassemble epson workforce 610?


Before you do a complete teardown, use a flashlight to examine every possible point in the paper feed path where the paper is jammed. There may be an easier way to clear it. In some cases I have had to clear a paper jam bit by bit using tweezers.

This is a paper jam error. check for any paper jammed in the printer, switch it off and open all trays, sheet feeders, duplex unit to check for any paper. if paper was jammed previously and was torn, there might be a piece of paper still stuck in it.

hope this helps!

Paper feeder stuck


If the paper feeder stuck, do the following:
  1. Gently pull any jammed paper out from the output tray or sheet feeder.
  2. If paper is stuck inside, open the printer cover and remove the jammed paper, including any torn pieces. Then close the printer cover.
  3. If paper remains near the sheet feeder, press the paper feed roller lever inside the paper feeder to release the jammed paper, then carefully pull it out.
  4. Load the paper correctly.
  5. Press the cp_button_14.gif stop button to resume printing.
  • If the printer continues to jam or misfeed paper, and you are certain that there are no foreign objects lodged down inside the paper feed area, your printer may require service. Please call Epson technical support for further assistance.

    I keep getting a paper jam message but there is no paper jam. any idea????


    There may be a piece of paper still stuck in the unit. If a paper jams in a printer, you should assemble the torn sheet and make sure all the pieces came out.
    Forcing a jammed sheet out of a printer can damage the paper detect arm. This arm is usually near the platen (The roller the head prints against) to detect the paper as it passes.

    Paper jam. paper pulls towards the right hand side and jams


    Sound like you have something stuck in the paper feed path, check for a paperclip or similar, it may be that you have had a jam and torn off a piece of paper inside the printer which is now stuck, when removing jams from any nmachine allways pull paper in direction of feed never back on itself as it can cause this very problem

    HP 4L printer indicates no paper when the tray has


    When you removed the paper jam, was the paper torn? If so, did you ensure that you found all the pieces. (Put the piece of paper back together like a puzzle to verify). There could be a piece of paper stuck in the printer that is causing the paper sensor to fail.
    The other possibility is that when you removed the paper jam, something became dislodged in the printer. Forcefully removing paper from the printer can cause this.

    Won't print - says 'paper jam 2' but no paper is stuck in machine


    Paper jam 2 error code is saying the jam is in the fuser area of the machine.
    You need to remove the toner cartridge, and since you said you've taken the whole thing apart, maybe try a flashlight and look for a LITTLE piece of paper that may have torn off that remains stuck around that fuser area (the fuser is the thing behind the toner that gets hot-- so be careful -- but look in the corners and anywhere a small piece of paper could have torn and got stuck.

    If you're absolutely sure that there is nothing stuck, I'd try to do a hard-reset: Turn off the machine, unplug the power cord and the cable that goes to your computer (if it's hooked up to one. And if it is hooked up to a computer, power down the computer as well.) Wait a minute or two, plug the computer back in, plug the power cord and cable from the printer back in, then turn on the printer and the computer and let them both go through their various start-ups.

    If none of that works, let us know.. but from what I know and the docs I have access to, it should work... (fingers crossed!)

    Good Luck!
