Chunked paper through, nothing got stuck. Wont work now
My printer suddenly took a lot of paper through, and there was nothing that got stuck at all. (I did have to pull them back out) But when I have tried to use it, it keeps coming up with a message on the little screen that I must contact an authorised dealer. I have checked that there is nothing stuck, I have moved the rollers back and forth. Any ideas please?? I have so many ink cartridges that I don't want to have to get rid of it, as its such a silly thing to have happened. I have never had a moments trouble with it.

Re: Chunked paper through, nothing got stuck. Wont work...
Have you tried a reset?
There is a sequence of button to be held down whilst you switch off and holding the button down still switch on again.
- I knew you were going to ask that.
I dont know for you machine there are so many Epson models out there and all are different.

I just had this error message appear on my computer screen and the 6A00 on my MP830 printer at the same time. I heard this error mean a few things (paper jam, ink carriage stuck), though not sure what it does actually mean. I moved the carriage back-and-forth, blasted compressed air and checked for paper jams. When nothing worked, I looked inside and saw a lot of spilled ink, I'm guessing from not using genuine Canon ink. I blotted the inside with paper towels (use gloves!!),especially the far right, and took out the ink cartridges and blotted the carriage. I replaced everything, powered the printer off and on, and it worked fine. I would suggest first to slide the carriage back-and-forth and look for paper jams before cleaning the ink. Hope this works for you.
Great job on taking out the paper jam without tearing it. Maybe the sensor got stuck and printer keeps thinking it's still has a paper jam. Remove the ink cartridges from the printer. Close the cover. Unplug the power adapter from the printer. The power adapter is the rectangular black box behind the printer where the power cord is attached. Wait at least 30 seconds before plugging it back in the printer. When the printer's ready, reload the cartridges then close the cover. If this doesn't help, I strongly suggest you contact Lexmark technical support to further investigate the problem. Thanks
I had the same problem and it turns out one of my kids put a coin into the top of it and it was far down inside where i could not see it.and it was stuck in the bend of the paper feed after tearing it almost all the way down i finally was able to see it removed the coin and it worked.
One of the paper sensors is probably stuck. Some disassembly may be required to get to them. They are normally small plastic rockers that will let a small IR device either allow a beam of infrared light to pass or block it. On this printer, I would guess that there are 2 of them. One located at the paper feed so it knows if there is something in the tray or not and the other is probably located at the back where the paper curls back around to pass beneath the print area. There could also be a thrid at the output tray, but with this particular model, I kind of doubt they put one there.
As long as the paper was not ripped and any was left inside of the printer, you should check the little black paper sensor and make sure it did not get broken when you removed the paper. If all of this is good, the cycle the power on your printer and it should reset the error.
Hi, my printer did the same and following the instruction of turning it of and clearing any jam didn't work. In the end I forced a sheet of paper into the printer intake at the rear of the machine and turned it off. The printer then took the sheet in about a third of the way. When I switched the printer on the sheet was then drawn through and out the front as if it were printed on. I think the printer has some sensors which must detect a sheet passing through them for it to reset. Hope this works.
Did you check the back to see if there is a paper stuck. If nothing is stuck then shut it off and restart it. I have lots of luck with this printer. I work at 2 schools and have 62 of these to keep in working order. I have only had 1 that had to be sent in for repairs.
