If you are sure that no scraps of paper (or other object) is jamming the paper feed path, you will need to dismantle the printer to investigate further. This is really a job for a technician; however, if you want to have a try yourself, you can download the service manual from here:

Also, post a new comment to this effect since I can provide useful extra info on getting these difficult machines apart.

Communications error between Windows 8.1 computer and Artisan 835 scanner

If you are getting a 'carriage jam' error as soon as you turn on your Epson printer with no tasks in progress, then check for any piece of paper stuck in the carriage. Remove the paper carefully. If the paper tears, part of it might remain inside the paper path and damage the product.

Fix 'Carriage Jam' : Open Door, clear carriage jam,
and then press OK to continue' error message
Turn off the printer and open it to see where the paper is stuck.
Manually move the carriage toward the opposite side.
Check the paper path and remove any piece of paper or any other object that is stuck in the path.
Reconnect the power cord and turn on the printer.

Paper feeder stuck

If the paper feeder stuck, do the following:
  1. Gently pull any jammed paper out from the output tray or sheet feeder.
  2. If paper is stuck inside, open the printer cover and remove the jammed paper, including any torn pieces. Then close the printer cover.
  3. If paper remains near the sheet feeder, press the paper feed roller lever inside the paper feeder to release the jammed paper, then carefully pull it out.
  4. Load the paper correctly.
  5. Press the cp_button_14.gif stop button to resume printing.
  • If the printer continues to jam or misfeed paper, and you are certain that there are no foreign objects lodged down inside the paper feed area, your printer may require service. Please call Epson technical support for further assistance.

    I have a paper jam in my epsn c84.


    Try one or more of these solutions:
    • Secure the roll paper you are not using with the roll paper belt when two roll paper spindles are installed. See Using the roll paper belt.
    • Before loading paper and guiding it through the paper insertion slot, make sure the roll paper is wound up firmly. Position the bottom edge of the paper straightly and in line with the rows of punch holes on the printer.
    • Make sure the paper is not folded or wrinkled.
    • Make sure printing occurs within the operational temperature range.
    • Make sure the paper is not damp.
    • Make sure the paper is not too thick or too thin. See Paper.
    • Make sure no foreign objects are inside the printer.
    • For Windows, check the Media Type setting in the Main Menu. Make sure it is correct for the paper you are using.
    For Macintosh, check the Media Type setting in the Print dialog box. Make sure it is correct for the paper you are using.
    • Make sure that the platen gap setting matches your paper. You can change the platen gap setting in the Printer Setting menu of the SelecType mode. See SelecType Settings.
    • For paper other than EPSON's, check the paper type selected in the Paper Configuration menu of the SelecType mode. See Setting the paper thickness.

    My epson cx3200 says paper jam, I dont see any paper jamed, when i press the button to say ive cleared it,it then runs a sheet of paper through it and says paper jam again, surely if there was a paper jam...

    Paper jams can be tricky to solve. The paper is usually stuck inside the printer mechanism so even if there is no visible paper jam, you will still get the paper jam error. Try this:

    1. Turn off your printer
    2. Open all trays and remove any paper stuck there
    3. Locate the button to open the printer, open it and remove any paper stuck there also.
    4. Repeate the above step for all buttons that you can find to access the inside of the printer
    5. Close all doors and put back all trays
    6. Turn on your printer

    Not printing

    If you've just bought a C84 today then you've been sold a second (or even third) hand unit which is clogged solid.

    To resolve this you're going to need to clean the printheads which is something I've described here

    It's a different printer but the same process applies.

    Hope that helps.

    Paper Jam C84

    Was the printer feeding multiple sheets at the same time, so that the sheer thickness of the wad caused the jam? If so, look into the slot where you load paper (this is called the automatic sheet feeder or ASF). You should see a small roller with a rubber coating. This is what pulls the sheets into the printer. Put one sheet of paper into the ASF and do a print. The Windows test print facility is convenient for this: start-control panel-printer and faxes, then right click your printer icon and select properties, then test print). If this works OK, put two pages into the ASF, then three etc. Observe what happens. If at some point more than one page is pulled in, it infers that the ASF is not working properly, in which case you will need to consult a technician (or have a go yourself at dismantling the printer). If the one-two-three-four etc page test doesn't produce a multiple feed, all it probably means, is that static electricity is holding the sheets tightly together. Make sure when you put a wad of paper into the ASF it has been fanned.

    Report back on what you find, or if you have any queries on the above.

    Epson stylus c84 inkjet printer

    I don't know if this will help but your problem sounds like one I had with a C82 model. On the right side of the printer below where the print head rests is a small plastic suction tube. This tube can become disconnected and will prevent the printer from printing. Check to see if this is your problem. In the picture the red circle shows where the tube connects and the yellow shows the tube.
