Hi

Chances are the sensor for grabbing the paper on the left hand side is defective. Try to check if there are obstructions as well

Hope this helps

To the best of my knowledge there is no sensor that detects the paper on either side so I'm not sure what Basti is referring to. It's more likely that you have a foreign object or some form of damage to the paper feed system that is blocking the papers path on the right hand side. I'd examine the paper input area for any sign of pencils, debris, as well as check the area inside the printer for any soiled bits of jammed paper, etc.. that could be causing the paper to get jammed on the one side.

I have an Epson Stylus C88 printer that I have loved. But all of a succen it pulls the paper to pint and may get one line and them wrinkles the paper and goes nuts. I hate to not be able to use it. ...


Hi there,
first off check try opening the paper so you can see the tray where the paper feeds in and check if there is some sort of jam or if anything looks loose.
Remove the cartridges and clean the roller/feeder that takes the paper in. If everything looks good then it could be the mechanical part of the feeder that has a problem and usually this happens when it wears out due to time or it has reached the maximum printing allowance.
If that's the case then a replacement would be necessary.
Hope this helps!

Hi the paper feed pulls the paper into the printer with a snatch type action and on one side of the paper causing it to jam ? the printer is a epson DX5000/CX4900 series.


***hi there,il be willing to help you on that. ****
there is a great possibility that the rollers of the printer is having an issue. but try there steps first , do a self test on the printer, run a blank sheet of paper, if it jammed, that means the printer itself is broken
put plain paper in the sheet feeder, then press the start button. if it jammed, remove the paper jam and try again.
***if my troubleshooting steps are helpful, pls vote for me, i will appreciate it, so that I can be a part of fixya, thanks, Godbless****

Epson C88 will not print, is flashing both paper and ink lights


I think you need to reset the counter, you can either take it into a epson service centre & have them reset it, or download a programme online.

you just need to google it, just type in service reset C88 that should do the trick.

Paper fed thru several sheets at a time, and now all of them are stuck , cannot pull out from top or finished sheet tray


Try pulling out the center sheets first, as they are not in contact with any rollers, also if you look inside on the left side of the printer you will see gears that drive the paper through that you can turn with your fingers to drive the paper either toward the exit or toward the back of the printer.

Have you removed the pull off tape from the top of the cartridges, it lets air in enabling the ink to flow, easy mistake!

Epson C88 printer will not feed paper


Check if there are any objects blocking the way of the printhead or if there are objects down the paper feed area.
Is your printer placed on a stable, flat surface?
Does it happen to all the papers that you are using? Are the papers in good condition?
Try loading only 10 to 20 sheets of regular paper.
do a printer check to isolate the issue. Turn the printer off. Unplug the usb cable from the printer. Hold down the paper button while you turn the printer on. Keep on holding down the paper button only. Let go of the paper button when the power light starts blinking. If it does the same, there is an issue already on the gear of your printer.
