Paper won't feed

I have had my printer for a couple of years now and this is the first time I have had a problem. All of the sudden it acts like it is going to print something and then it beeps repeatedly and says that the paper did not feed. This has never happened before. We have tried to print with only one piece of paper, with a few pieces and also with a small stack. It does the same thing no matter what we do. Please help.

    I checked the rubber wheel and when I did I discovered that there was something stuck in the groove of the wheel that the rubber is on. It was preventing the wheel from turning. It was something as small as the tip of a pencil. The rubber seems fine and the paper now feeds, but if you wouldn't have suggested checking the rubber, I would never have discovered the problem. Thank You

My old Brother printer stopped feeding paper. Finally after i cleaned the rubber rollers with the solution used to clean ink printing heads (not alcohol) it seems to be working fine. I also filled the ink cartridges and this may have helped since I've seen reports that low ink could cause these printers to act funky.

The paper is pulled in with rubber traction wheels on a rotating rod where the bottom of the paper sits in the loading area. If these rubber wheels get slick or hard, they won't pull. Buffing the rubber wheels lightly with fine sandpaper will restore the wheels to the rubbery texture they need to pull the paper. But be SURE to completely clean any abrasive dust out of the machine before use.

    Well, I'm glad your problem is fixed now, even if it wasn't the feeder rollers causing it. ;)

5740 acts like it's printing, but no ink on paper


Since it's trying to print, the printer probably just needs cartridges. The ink can dry in the nozzles with age and disuse and clog them.

Before you splurge on new cartridges, try getting them going. (This assumes there is some ink left in them.) Take the cartridges out of the printer, wet a layer of paper towels about 1/8 inch thick, and whack the nozzles against the wet surface a few times. Check every few whacks to see if you're getting any ink flow. Repeat until you see some ink on the towels and on the nozzles, or until you decide it's futile. Often this dislodges the clogged ink and opens the nozzles, and buys some extra printing time. But you're probably going to want new ones soon anyway.

My 810 acted up suddenly and just stopped working. It had been ok with a new computer which is now 2 years old. I uninstalled and reinstalled the printer driver. That solved my problems.

My printer has suddenly started printing terrible quality photos


I discovered I had switched photo paper in the process. The new paper obviously isn't compatible with this printer. I went and purchased more of my regular paper and the pictures began printing well again.

Very Faint Printouts


I find the best way to clean the heads is buy some cleaning cartridges as they have cleaning fluid in them and use them to clean it will take about 10 or more times to clean the heads then put the color ones back in and try again.
Just keep putting it on clean the head don't do a print out till at lest you have cleaned 10 or more times.

New ink went bad overnight


DancerTiffy,

I can't tell you why your machine is acting like that nor can I tell you that you have a problem.

What I can tell you is that you're not alone when it comes to the ink drying out all of the sudden. In the past few years I can't count the number of people who have explained this problem. I also can't count the number of people that have said their Epson produces the highest quality prints and their happy with it.

Your problem could be the printer or it could be the ink. Since it already happened twice it's hard to say.

  • How long have you had the machine?
  • Still under the retail store's return policy?
  • Still under the manufactures warranty?
  • Only two prints were printed?
