One of the feed rollers may have ink or some debris on it. Get a lint free cloth and put some alcohol on it and clean the entire roller set, all the way around if possible.

Paper wont feed in anymore. Tries to feed in but goes in wonky and then jams


Check to see if there are any jams in the printer, use a flashlight to get a good look around.

If you don't see any jams, Shake the printer around to loosen up any debris so it falls out of the printer. Alot of times kids fool around and put things in the printer and sometimes they are in the area where the paper feeds thru. If you do this and the paper still jams up, then that means the gears are worn and you'll have to get another printer because parts wouldn't be available for it.

When printing, the paper is grabbed by one side and prints wonky. It seems to print better when selecting Matte card, but then uses more ink. How can i get it to print straight on plain paper?


On the paper tray there is a move-able guide, when you place a number of sheets in the paper tray you need to adjust this guide so that the paper is held in place with no sideways movement.....

If this guide is not in the right place the paper can be pulled to one side by paper pick up...

If the guide is set right and it still happens, get a torch and take the paper out of the tray and look down in where the paper goes.

There may be an obstruction in the side of the feeder.

This could be a small piece of paper or another object...

Document feeder jams


Hi,
When you put your paper in, check the side clamps are set correct, if there is a gap at one edge, your feeding will be all over the place.
Tuck up the clamps to clamp the paper, not too tight where you bend the paper, but tight enough to hold it correctly.
Regards

There is a small slot below the removable ribbon cover. Cut the end of the paper so that you have a 45 degree angle.

Example:

/
/ l
/ l
/ l
/ l
/ l
l l
l l

It does not have to be so sharp of an angle, but it helps to get the end through the maze.

Insert the paper into the slot, and wiggle it through until you can grab the end of it. Pull the paper through, and slide it through the cover, and reinstall the ribbon cover.

When putting the paper on the roller make sure that the paper is heading straight into the slot.
Example: _O, not like this: /O

Normally this can be caused by
1.) damaged gears
2.) damaged feeder motor
3.) damaged paper holder(the pins that grab the paper)

in any of the above cases you will need to take apart to see what the problem is.. if its the motor then you can change it..
if it with the feeder it self id suggest you consider buying a ney one,, even if you manage to change the gears or the feeder pins you may never be able to get it to pull correctly, eighter pulling twisted or constantly causing paper jams.. The choice is your but i'd say buy a new one

My epson cs7800


I had the same problem and found a small spring was loose and interfering with the paper. The Spring was on the right side as you look at the printer, near the bottom of the paper feeder. I took it out and it works fine, for now.
