Still printing but the paper goes no further?. It may be the paper is locked by paper feeder mecahnics, Open case, check it, and may be there is something "material" broke.

why print velvet paper? the problem is the velvet would be too thick and it would jam the print heads because when they run over the paper it would pull the velvet and it would get jammed i don`t think you should print velvet

Epson PX700w paper jam


Hello there
You may not see a paper jam.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

My Epson LQ-590/LQ-2090 keeps having paper jams located just beyond the tractor feed.. help


When a paper jam occurs during printing for some reason, the printer beeps, displaying the message <PAPER JAM> in the display. When a paper jam occurs, remove the jammed paper using the following procedure, and then resume the job. If the message that indicates the paper jam does not disappear even after removing the jammed paper following the procedure, there is a possibility that torn pieces of paper are still left inside the printer. Inspect each part of the printer again, and completely remove all pieces of jammed paper.

Paper jam, with no paper jam!


Hi,

try to re open again your machine and look very carefully inside remember even how small the paper it will still cause for a paper jam.

if not try to send it to a service technician to give a look to the printer head and rollers.

Paper Jam!


Clean your pickup rollers with a damp terrycloth towel. What happens is the pickup rollers get lint and dust on them and then don't pick up the paper as well. Cleaning should resolve your issue.
