Got my own PX800FW.

Please note that ADF paper jam online docs of EPSON Aculaser 1100 http://www.epson.co.uk/gb/en/viewcon/corporatesite/products/mainunits/faq/2929/1393#toc6 are craph* more detailed than the PX800FW **** that EPSON is making users put up with.



I am having the very same ADF scanner jam issue (paper stuck directly when trying to feed into the lower rolls).

Initially I suspected the upper paper feed rolls (turning them requires rather strong force), but they were not the actual problem (see below).

If you want to inspect these top rolls, then remove the top flap
(use a screw driver to somewhat (and obviously carefully!) bend the plastic hold located towards the user panel side, then lift off top flap.

I then unscrewed its 4 screws.

To remove the main roller mechanism, you need to pull out (somewhat forcefully, but obviously carefully) the large white extended cog bar. Then push out the somewhat larger wheel bar from its flap-side plastic holder.

Now you\'re able to (while keeping a watch on the small white tab that\'s being drawn back by a spring) remove the entire roller skeleton.

I then proceeded with removing the end cap (fiddling with a screw driver - but watch out for some parts getting lost due to a somewhat strong spring!) and replaced the spring with a weaker one, and adding some washer plates reinforce the slightly weakish spring. I then ended up with a roller mechanism that was almost as strongly pressing the rolls towards paper, yet actually turning them ended up easier on the motor.


I then put everything back together, but an attempt with the newly replaced parts failed, too.


Then I directed my attention towards the main motor / cog mechanism.

I rather instantly had to discover that the main cog at the main ADF motor was broken, and this is very likely to be the reason for the ADF jam issue.
This rather flimsy black cog is made of plastic (and having some nice tiny predetermined breaking point holes to boot!! guess where it did break...) and sitting on a metal drum which seems to be rather strongly attached to the main motor axis, unfortunately.
I will now try to remove the drum, possibly with the help of hopefully successfully warming it via a hair dryer. Choosing to glue the original plastic cog instead doesn\'t sound like such a marvelous proposition...

Given the rather flimsy appearance of the entire printer a future EPSON choice is quite unlikely.

SOURCE: epson stylus sx405 will not load paper

Inspect the rollers that take the paper in. If none of them appear out of place or damaged, it may be that they need cleaning. I've had some success cleaning printer rollers with methylated spirits, but any dust cleaner should work.

Paper not feeding for epson nx400


Check the following:


  • If paper doesn't feed, remove it from the sheet feeder. Reload it against the right side, behind the tab, then press in the tab on the edge guide and slide it against the paper. Make sure the paper is not above the arrow mark inside the edge guide.

  • If multiple pages feed at once, remove the paper from the sheet feeder, fan the edges to separate the sheets, then reload it.

  • If the paper doesn't eject fully, you may have set the wrong paper size. Press the c:\users\home\appdata\local\temp\msohtmlclip1\01\clip_image001.gif Stop button, then open the scanner and remove the paper. Select the correct paper size when you reprint.

  • If it's wrinkled when it ejects, the paper may be damp or too thin. Load new paper.

  • Make sure you use new, smooth, high-quality paper, that is not curled, creased, old, or too thin. Make sure to load it printable side up.

  • Do not load paper with holes punched in it for insertion in a binder.

  • Make sure you load only up to the recommended number of sheets. If you're printing on both sides of the paper, try loading fewer sheets.

If the paper jams, do the following:

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

2. To eject the jammed paper, try turning the Epson Stylus NX400 off and then back on.

If that doesn't work and paper is stuck inside, turn off the Epson Stylus NX400. Open the scanner, remove the jammed paper and torn pieces, close the scanner, and turn the Epson Stylus NX400 back on.
