If the Paper Out LED is flashing the machine believes there is paper in the machine. If you know there has not recently been a jam and paper was torn when it was removed then there may be a fault with the paper sensor. The most likely scenario is that there is something holding the paper sensor in the active position. This may be a torn piece of paper, or a foreign object that has fallen in. Easiest way to find out is remove the covers and the Auto Sheet Feeder (ASF) to check for objects and/or damaged sensor. The dismantling is straight forward and easy enough for anyone to do. If you are unsure about how to remove the covers and ASF get a service manual from http://www.TheServiceManualShop.com (if yours isi not listed, just ask them for it - they will have it) and use it to guide you through removing the parts. Once inside, look for the sensor paddle (flag) hanging down into the paper path on the home end (right side as you look from the front) If the flag is not hanging down it may just need a gentle pull or it may have got broken off. Again use the manual to help you reseat the flag. If it is broken you can rebuid the old one with a peice of modlers plastic (or even a drinking straw) and some glue. Obviously if you note any foreign objects in the mech, remove them. Reassemble and test it out.

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.

Warning lights blink upon startup, printer freezes


If the lights flash alternately then it is probably your waste ink pads that need cleaning
If the lights flash continuously check your printer for any outstanding documents in the print queue and cancel them then try again

Epson Stylus Color 740.All indicators flashing (unknown printer error) Have tried troubleshooting advice. ie Turn of printer etc. But this does not correct problem. Any suggestions ?


Sounds like the printer may be jammed. When it goes through it's initialization process, it checks ink cartridge movement, and scanner arm, and when they don't respond correctly, the lights flash to indicate the fault(s).
Try to check for any paper jam first, and work the paper feed rollers slightly to see if they're bound up. Aside from this, it will have to be opened up most likely to see what's going on. I've seen mostly broken gears in the worst cases, but I've also seen paper jams, you just never know till you get in there. If it's under warranty, have it checked out, otherwise what have you got to lose by opening it up and investigating a bit- you might get lucky. If you choose to get it serviced, get an estimate first, since sometimes it's just better to buy a new one on sale, and the free cartridges that come with it are sometimes worth the price of the printer, so it's, basically, free. Good luck, wish I had a simple answer for you.
