Hi
This clearly indicates that problem is with the rollers in the paper feed tray..to clear the obstruction-fold a sheet of paper 3-4 times lenghtwise to make it thick..insert this into the paper feed tray,behind the rollers-move it left right a couple of times....repeat this a couple of times-if no go...call tech support..printer would be replaced if in warranty...good luck

Hi

The paper jammed can be found in the paper tray, remove the paper at the paper tray and inspect the roller for small pieces of paper jammed.

The paper can be found in the ink cartridge compartment, open the cartridge door and remove the ink cartridges, look for posibble paper jammer. Also once remove, check also the cartridge carrier if does not stuck up or jammed (cause this might me the problem). Turn off your printer and then move the cartridge head using your hand moving to the from right to left side and from left side to right side for 2-3 times. Move it gently.

Paper can be found in the rear access door if it is accessible. Inspect some paper jammed there.

Please let me know if you need more help

Paper jam light on permanently, printer is jammed


Check the following steps for fixing Hp Carriage Jam Error :

Open the print carriage access door. Check for any packing material that may be blocking the internal components. Check for an orange shipping lock that may still be in place on the left side. Pull the shipping lock out, if present, and discard.

Remove and reinstall the cartridges to make sure they are properly installed. Lift the front center of the print carriage access door to open it. Lift the door up until it locks into an open position. Press down on a print cartridge and allow it to spring back up. Lift the cartridge out of the printer. Do the same for the other cartridge. Slide the black cartridge into the slot on the left and the color cartridge into the slot on the right. Press down on each one to lock it into place. Lower the print carriage access door.

Check the print cartridges to make sure the protective tape has been removed from the ink nozzles. Remove the cartridges from the printer. Remove any tape or labels. Replace the cartridges into the printer.

Push in on the tab on the left side of the clean-out door on the back of the printer to open the door. Lift the door out of the printer. Check for any paper jams. Jammed paper can block the printer cartridge carriage from moving. Pull any jammed paper out.

Our printers epson c42ux red light is on stand still


A permanently on red light can mean several things. If the green light is also ON, it means that you heve no paper loaded, an empty or faulty ink cartridge, or a jammed paper feed. I presume you have loaded paper. You say you have changed the ink cartridges. Note that BOTH cartridges must have ink for the printer to work. The simplest way to check this, or to check for a faulty cartridge, is to try another new set of cartridges - compatible cartridges are very cheap on EBay - about £3 a set in the UK.

To check for jammed paper, remove the paper from the sheet feeder and look carefully inside it, and inside the printer (lift the lid) for scraps of jammed paper. Remove any you see. Press the ink/paper feed button and see if it goes through a paper feed cycle. Reinsert the paper and try it again. If it works, turn the printer off and on again, and it should now be OK.

If the green light is OFF, it means you have a Carriage problem, i.e. something is fouling the print head when it tries to go from side to side. Check this with manual movement. Turn the printer off. After a few seconds, turn it back on again. As soon as the print head moves, pull the power cord out of the back of the printer. You should now be able to move the print head across to the left side (gently!) by hand, then move it back to the right and see if it will go fully into its parking bay at the right hand end. You should be able to tell if someting is hindering its movement anywhere.

Please report back with a new comment if none of this solves the problem.

There could be 4 possibilities.

1. Ink cartridges lids are open which is not allowing cartridges to move freely.
2. Ink cartridges carriage will not move from its original position(left) when front cover is opened
3. Encoder strip is Dirty.
4. Encoder strip is Out of position.

Solution:
1. Open the front cover and check if ink cartridges lids are properly snapped in.

2. Turn the printer off and pull out the power cable from power socket, open the front cover and manually center the ink cartridges carriage.
Clean the metallic rod inside the printer using WD40 or Kleenex from Left corner to right corner properly.

3. Cleaning the encoder strip:
a. printer should be off and disconnected from power.
b. open the front cover.
c. Using a dry, lint free cloth, pinch the encoder strip on the right-hand side of the cartridge carriage and pull your fingers across it toward the right-hand side of the printer and you can move the cartridges carriage to clean the strip completely.
d. Note: The encoder strip is a narrow band of clear plastic and can be difficult to see without direct lighting running parallel to metallic rod.
e. Close the printer and try again to print.

4. Repositioning the Encoder strip.
a. Remove the power cord from the printer.
b. Open the front cover.
c. Gently slide the ink cartridge carrier to the middle of the printer.
d. Gently move the top part of the printer belt to the right.
e. Using an index finger, gently push encoder strip down and then back up, to get it back into the slot located on the back of the ink cartridge carrier.
f. Gently press the strip first to the rear, and then forward, to ensure that it is seated correctly.
g. Manually move the ink cartridge carrier to the left, then to the right, to check the positioning of the encoder strip.
h. Once the encoder strip has been re-seated, close the scanner lid.
i. Re-connect the power cord to the printer and try again to print.

Introduction
The flashing error code that indicates a jammed printer is the digital-age equivalent of a
flat tire. Sooner or later it happens to everyone, so you'd better know how to get things
moving again if you want to finish your print job.
Instructions
Difficulty: Moderate Steps
1 Step One Turn the printer off and on to see if it can automatically clear some or all of
the jam. Many printers provide an error-code listing on the front panel display for the area
where the jam occurred. If your printer shows an error code, be sure and check the printer
manual to see if that identifies the area of the printer where the jam occurred.
 
2Step Two Turn off the printer.
3Step Three Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
 
4Step Four Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the
toner or ink cartridge.
5Step Five If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it in a bag or away from
light to avoid damaging it.
 
6Step Six Click to enlargeIf you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with
both hands and pulling firmly (see A). The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If
several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the
jam. SEE PICS http://www.imagehost.ro/pict/0104361047293b9a4006c.jpg

7Step Seven Click to enlargeIf the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually
to free the paper (see B). Don't force anything, though.SEE PICS
http://www.imagehost.ro/pict/0104365847293bcaa9870.jpg
 
8Step Eight Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened
and turn the printer back on.
9Step Nine If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in
the printer.
 Reinspect the paper path.
