Yes it can probably be fixed. I hope you poked your friend in the eye for giving you such a headache though. You will need to dismantle the machine and remove the Auto Sheet Feeder (ASF) Once removed, check there is no bits of paper stuck inside. Then turn the pick up mechanisme by hand through a couple of revolutions to re synch everything. Also check the paper sensor is still intact - if not you can construct a new one from a piece of plastic or if the old one is still present, just glue it back together. You can download a service manual to hep you out with the dismantling from either: http://www.TheServiceManualShop.com http://mikeburton.tradebit.com/

I had a very similar problem with the ADF, it resulted in ADF paper jam - message and then in Req Code 2011.
I checked sensors and everything else, then called a epson service professional.
After telling him the Req Code, he knew the problem and said that the problem is the board, which needs to be exchanged, mentioning that this spare part is expensive.
I then checked the whole ADF again, now opening the long grey cover on the backside, I disonnected the connector cable from both sides and - using a multimeter - checked this connector cable for breaks.
Result: the violet cable was broken, so I soldered in a new wire, using the last cm of (old) wire on each side - and now the ADF works fine.
This cable is easy to change if you get the spare part, there is a connector plug on each side, on the ADF side is an additional ground wire (green) fixed with a single screw. Thats it !
For the electronic experts: the configuration of the connector:
sourrounding metal cover = ground, thick green Wire on the ADF side
If you turn the plug that way, that the two single contacts are on top, these are the colours:
1st row: brown - black
2nd row: green - yellow - orange - red
3rd row: grey - violet - blue
Hope this helps

Had the same problem, too. The grinding noise came from the gear of the loading mechanism, located (if looked on printer from behind) on the right side next to paper tray.
I had a problem with the paper loading, too.
That problem was due to a broken wire for the magnetic release of the loading mechanism, located on the right side, too.
My experience with this epson is, that most problems with it come from broken wires, e.g. the problems with the ADF I had, the problem with the magnetic release I had.....
If I hadn´t invested so much time and money in this printer, I´d rather scrap it immediately.

Couldn't fix the problem, but the Epson people have agreed to send us a new unit when the tech supprt people couldn't provide a solution. We are to send the old one back. I'm glad this happened while the printer was still under warranty. Hope this doesn't happen to someone else, but we're pleased with Epson's reponse.
