Paper transport works not properly, 3 flashes orange LED


Hi,
First make sure the printers well connected and the power supply properly plugged.
  • Remove any previously loaded paper.
  • Check out the printers Auto sheet feeder/front feeder for any paper jams and remove manually any visible stuck papers.
  • Turn the printer off and on.This also helps in automatically removing any stuck papers that may not be manually removed.
  • Make sure there is no foreign objects in the Auto sheet feeder.
  • Make sure you load a fair amount of plain papers in the feeder,that is,reduce by half the amount you feed into the feeder.
  • In case the printers rear cover had been removed,fit it properly by pressing it firmly until it fully fits into the rear of the printer.

Hope this helps.Thanks!

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.

    What does load mp feeder letter mean? There is paper in the printer why is the printer not prinint


    load mp feeder means To load the Manual Paper Feeder
    You might have selected the printer settings for manual feeding. Hence you need to feed that papers in manual feeding tray.
    You can change the settings to automatic paper feeding to get rid of this error.

    Loaded paper not going through


    Annie, did you try to feed it one paper at a time? in many printers the feeder doesn't do a good job separating one paper from the rest.
    another thing you can do is to turn off the printer and back on. this might get it out of the stuck status it is in.
    did you check there isn't any paper stuck in the feeder?

    Clean the rollers down where the paper sets in the printer. Do not use cheap generic matte coated paper. Some generic matte coated paper will leave a film on your rollers and cause them to not grip the paper.

    Paper jam


    Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
    Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
    Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button. (On the X83, press the Select button.)
    Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
    Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

    If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
    If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.

    If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
    Turn the printer off.
    Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
    Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.

    If the paper is lodged too far into the printer and can't be removed:
    Press the power button to turn the printer off.
    Pull firmly on the paper to remove it. If you can't reach the paper because it is too far in, raise the front cover and remove the paper from the front of the printer.
    Close the front cover.
    Press the power button to turn the printer back on.
    Resend your document to print.

    Ensure that:
    The paper is a recommended paper for inkjet printers.
    You do not force the paper down into the printer when you load it. For example, if you are loading letter or A4 size paper, the top edge of the paper should extend above the top of the sheet feeder.
    The printer is on a flat, level surface.
    The left paper guide is against the side of the paper.
    You do not load too much paper in the sheet feeder. Depending on the thickness of your paper, the sheet feeder can hold up to 100 sheets of paper.
    The left paper guide does not cause the paper to bend in the sheet feeder.
    Your printer feeds regular paper as expected. If regular paper feeds without causing problems, load the envelopes vertically against the right side of the sheet feeder. Make sure the paper guide is against the side of the envelopes.
    Envelopes or the appropriate specialty papers are selected in the printer driver.
    You are using a paper or envelope size supported by your printer.

    Lexmark e320 thumping on feed


    Hi,
    The printer may report load paper when there is enough paper present in the feeder, however this could be due to number of reasons such as if there is something which is blocking the paper to flow through the feeder anything for example, some foreign martial like a pen or a pencil, please find few steps below to fix this issue.

    1. Confirm that no foreign materials are inside the machine.
    2. Confirm that usable paper is set.
    3. Confirm that the paper is set properly.
    4. Confirm that recommended paper is used, and the number of sheets are not exciding the required number limit.
    5. Adjust the paper feeder guide to the sheet size.
    6. Disconnect the printer power cord as well as the printer cable form the printer.
    7. Turn the printer upside down and shake the printer in order to remove any obstacle which is stuck inside the printer causing the paper jam error.
    Open the printer cover and remove the cartridge and check carefully if there is any small piece of paper which is stuck inside, if so carefully remove it.
    8. Disconnect the printer power cord and press and hold the power button on the printer for about 15 to 20 seconds( this will release the flee power) and reconnect the printer and check.
    9. Try to rotate the wheel inside the feeder if you can reach it, to ensue that it is free enough to pull the paper.
    10. Try printing with having only one sheet in the feeder and check if it does work.


    Should you require any further assistance regarding the printer or even any other compute related issue please feel free to contact me I will be more than glad to assist you.
