Question about Epson Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My C46 has been spoiled by someone who can get into my home. It will not allow the paper to go through It is grabbed on the right and goes to the left. I've tried finding something to change about it. It doesn't seem to have any parts that move. Paper is inserted correctly. Big help if you can tell me what to do

Typically there is a small bit of paper that is stuck somewhere in the paper path. It is now probably black with ink and will be hard to see. Usually running some card stock through the printer will clear it. But if necessary, manually push some thin plastic (maybe from some clothes packages) back and forth through the paper path, especially at the edges to try and dislodge the offending clog.

What you don't see is that when you close the cover the ink cartridge moves back and forth, grabbing the edge of the paper on the right and pushing it to the left. There may also be a piece of paper stuck on the ink cartridge head or carriage. Remove the ink cartridge, inspect the head and place where it moves to see if there isn't a bit of paper stuck there (again, will be saturated with ink). Use same process to remove. Try not to use a knife or other sharp object as it might damage the printer.

I got two to three pages of paper stuck inside the machine


Open the front cover, where the toner cartridge goes in, and remove the toner cartridge. Also remove the paper tray from the unit. Now with these items removed you should be able to see the paper jam. Grab hold of the paper firmly and try to pull it out. Try grabbing all the sheets together, if that does not work try them individually. Usually this should allow you to remove the paper jam.

Printer no longer feeds paper from paper tray; I tried cleaning it, it sounds like the printer is trying to grab the paper but it does not grab it.


Remove the paper tray. Use a lint-free cloth dampened with rubbing alcohol (isopropyl) to wipe all around the black "rubberish" wheels right underneath the unit where paper tray goes. I learned that by calling Okidata.

This is a very late response to your query, but you did have it in the C46 section. It sounds like you have blocked heads but there could be other reasons such as a faulty print head or main board. If you still require help with this problem, please post a new comment to this effect.

HI this is happening to me right now too-- try this-- I'm not sure if it's going to work-- but it's worth a shot.

On your computer, go to a print menu to print a document.
click on properties
go to maintenance tab
try the quiet/sleep mode

also, try going to custom and slow down the printing allowing for a little extra dry time.

reason I suggest it: my printer is doing the same, it's almost like the auto sheet feeder (only on the right side--why paper is grabbing weird) is grabbing too quickly. When in sleep mode, it seems to slow it down a little. I've also been printing 1 page at a time. I'm not saying this is a permanent fix, but at $50 for a pack of ink-- hopefully if you can't fix it-- it can get you to use up the last of the ink you have incase you decide to get a new printer.

Check to make sure the paper alignment tool is up against the papers edge (snug), and verify no foreign objects in the feeder.
