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/

SOURCE: Epson AcuLaser CX11N ADF Paper Jam

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

SOURCE: CX11NF "Paper Jam" and Noise

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.

SOURCE: Epson Workforce 500 paper out...still thinks it's jammed

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.

Epson wf 3540 paper jam in adf and the mechanical system keeps on grinding in there. Is there a video somewhere on how to open the ADF and align parts in there


The ADF just pops open from the left side of the printer. There's some finger holes and just lift up the lid. As for grinding, it may be busted unless it got a sheet of paper in the gears.

Correct setting for Epson Workforce 7520 printing on gloss paper


You need to start with photo glossy paper that's designed for an Epson printer. HP paper may not work well, and some other papers don't work either. Try some Epson paper, and that should work fine.
You can also try other paper settings, such as "transparency" or "matte paper", as the paper setting governs how much ink is laid down. I think getting the right paper is really what you need, though. Ink "puddling" is a common Epson complaint, and it's almost always the paper.

Epson wf 7525 paper not loading


Because this printer is new, the problem is not likely to be due to a worn pickup mechanism but the mechanism may not be working correctly as you have noted. Referring the problem to the printer manufacturer may get results

I guess the pickup roller is stuck because I can't spin the green part of it. the printer has been noisy lately, with grinding noise and jamming paper often but today really got stuck completely. Can...


sorry bout the delay :(
the "grinding noise" only means that some parts/gears that is unfortunately inaccessible to users are either not lining-up or worst have loose teethes and ultimately causing the paper jams.
do you have any error from the LCD panel display? what number or code does it show?
refer to this guide:ftp://download.epson-europe.com/pub/download/289/epson28944eu.pdf#

if the issue is (obviously based on your description how the printer is performing) beyond what is shown in the guide above, go to the repair services section on this page:http://www.epson.co.uk/Printers-and-All-In-Ones/Laser/Epson-EPL-N2550/Drivers-Support#

that is one sturdy printer but sometimes paper jams initiates rollers and paper feeders mis-alignment that causes more paper jams and worsening the issue.

I have a epson artisan 800 I'm tring to fax from the automatic feeder but it keeps making a grinding sound and then it says paper jam but paper never even went through


I took apart my artison 800 with 'paper jam' error and grinding noise. Sadly enough, it is the plastic gear attached to the stepper motor which is slipping and making the grinding noise. I tried to glue it and it worked once or twice and failed again. It is a design flaw and Epson should repair this for free if they are honest about this problem. Ir is not a user-caused problem.

Paper Jam...grinding noise


The print head lock is probably not retracting. Look for the white plastic block that pokes through from the paper feed side just in front of the head. Push it in with your finger and move the head to the middle by hand. Now turn the machine on. Then turn it off using the correct method. Then turn it on once more. If it starts grinding again, you screwed the feed mechanism when tugged out the jammed paper (probably pulled it backward through the feed instead of making it go forward and out the correct exit). If this is the case, you may as well bin it. If it in warranty, you can try to get a claim for repair.

Paper transport does not work; terrible grinding noise


I took mine apart from the back and put it back together and it worked. It is probably due to moving it and the bottom paper tray alignment gets out of whack. I inspected all of the gear train and didn't find any worn or missing teeth. I suspect a paper jam started it and the user turned the printer around to open the back door. Since the handles are on the printer the tray doesn't move with it which allows it to separate and possibly jam a pickup drive gear.
