Re: Epson stylus photo 830

Yes it can probably be fixed. I hope you poked your friend in the eye for giving you such a headache though. You will need to dismantle the machine and remove the Auto Sheet Feeder (ASF) Once removed, check there is no bits of paper stuck inside. Then turn the pick up mechanisme by hand through a couple of revolutions to re synch everything. Also check the paper sensor is still intact - if not you can construct a new one from a piece of plastic or if the old one is still present, just glue it back together. You can download a service manual to hep you out with the dismantling from either:

This looks to be a problem with the paper pickup roller. Hence use a little thin Photo paper or replace the Pickup roller and also the Paper feed toller (Long black roller )

Paper jam

From the reference manual for your Photo Printer

"Epson Stylus Photo R220 Series Printers"

The Paper Jams

Press the font29.gif paper button to eject the jammed paper. If the error does not clear, turn the printer off, open the printer cover and the CD/DVD guide. Remove all of the paper inside, including any torn pieces, then close the CD/DVD guide. Reload the paper, then press the font29.gif paper button to resume printing.
r_note.gif Note: r_space.gif If you cannot remove a foreign object easily by yourself, do not use force and do not disassemble the printer. Call Epson for assistance.
If your paper jams frequently, check the following:
  • The paper is smooth, not curled or wrinkled.
  • The paper is of high quality.
  • The printable side of the paper is face up in the sheet feeder.
  • The paper stack was fanned before loading.
  • The paper is not loaded above the triangular load-limit mark on the left edge guide.
  • The paper stack fits under the tabs inside the edge guides.
  • The number of sheets in the paper stack does not exceed the limit specified for that media.

Got paper jammed pulled it out but now won't work tries but then red flashing and makes a bit of noise

-To clear a paper jam near the paper tray, grip the paper and pull it firmly but gently from the printer. If you find a stack of papers jammed, grab from the middle of the stack and pull.

-For a rear jam, remove the back of the printer. When you find a free edge on the paper, grip it firmly and pull it out.

-Press the "Resume" button or turn off the printer, and then turn it back on. Your settings should reset.

Stylus CX9400 Photo Printer: paper jammed inside printer...

If paper is jammed, a Paper jam message will appear on the control panel display.

Follow these steps to clear the jam:

  1. Gently pull any jammed paper out of the output tray or sheet feeder.

  2. If the paper is stuck inside, turn off the Epson Stylus CX.

  3. Open the scanner, remove the jammed paper and torn pieces, close the scanner, and turn the Epson Stylus CX back on.

    alert_note.gif Note: Be sure to check the far left of the carriage area when checking for jammed paper. Paper that is jammed there may be hidden from view.
If paper jams inside the Automatic Document Feeder, clear the jam as follows:

  1. Open the Automatic Document Feeder cover and remove any jammed paper.


  2. If necessary, lift the document cover and remove any paper that has jammed inside.


  3. Press OK to clear any messages on the display screen.

Paper jam on Epsonstyles Photo 1290. How do I clear it?

Open your printers cover and remove any paper that got stuck. If they are stuck between the rollers, gently pull them out. Look for any tiny paper shreds that might be blocking a sensor or might as well stuck between rollers.

Epson stylus pohoto 830u paper feed

I'm afraid this series of printer (810 -830) doesn't handle heavy photo paper well - which is a bit strange for a so-called photo printer. If you hold each sheet and help it to feed it will work. But ...... for goodness sake. Your best bet is to sell it on e-bay and buy something that will handle heavy paper.
