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.

Getting a Paper Jam error


Follow the instructions below in an attempt to resolve the issue you are experiencing.

1) Turn off the printer and remove all paper from the paper tray & disconnect it from the computer.
2) With the printer off, check for any obstructions such as torn paper or foreign objects.
3) Turn on the printer (still disconnected from the computer) and check the lights / lcd screen.

Still getting the same error ? Go for Warranty or Service.

Else,

4) Place 20-30 sheets of paper in the printer, ensuring none of the paper is torn or creased.
5) Make sure that the paper is flush with the far right edge of paper tray, move the left edge paper guide over so that it touches the left side of the paper.
6) Try to feed paper manually (using the paper feed button).

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!

My Epson C 84 had something jammed into the paper feed and once the item (a blind pull from the window) was dislodged it will not fee paper or print. any words of advice?


It seems likely that the feed mechanism has been dislodged or broken in some way.

Look down into the place where the paper goes (the "automatic sheet feeder" or ASF) and you should see a fat wheel with a grey ribbed rubber facing. Place a single sheet of paper in the ASF and do a test print (right click the printer icon and select properties). Watch to see what happens in the ASF. The plastic panel behind the sheet of paper should move forward to push the sheet against the rotating rubber wheel, which should then feed the paper into the print position. If this is not happening you will need to dismantle the printer to investigate further.

If you wish to do this, post a new comment to this effect and I will provide further help.
