Re: printer stucked up

This sounds like a paper jam. make sure that the rollers are okay, you find this when the printer turns on and the rollers go. they should slide without problems if they are Ok. In a case where the rollers themselves have a problem, take the printer to a tec who can fix that easily.

Also check the cartridge holder if the rollers are fine. it could be that the holder itself isnt managing to slide on the bar well. clear off any obstuctions and make sure the cartridge rest holder at the extreme right is Ok, else that will need to be positioned.

Grinding noises when started and then scanner error code

I had exactly the same problem. In my case I was able to deal with it by twisting the whole upper place of the printer (the half side of the printer that you open when changing cartridges), like when you remove the ice cubes from a tray.. I have to do this only during the starting up. After the initial scanner test, it works normally till the printer does the automatic scanner test again, or if I turn it on/off again.
I am trying to get a permanent solution by installing a piece or rubber on one side of the printer, between both upper and lower sides, so it will create the twisting effect.
By the way, I would agree with the previous comment from doc_delphi. The printer is not too expensive and I would replace by a new one. Unfortunately I live in a jungle and its not easy to bring stuff up here. We have to be creative and develop patience.
I hope this post helps others. Good Luck;

When I turn on my Epson DX8400 it says that I have a paper jam that I can't find. The print head cartridge container goes across to the left in its usual warm up sequence, then make this awful noise and...

take a look at the back of your printer there should be a panell that comes off if you can take that pannel off look in there there is most likely paper stuck back there not allowing your printer to spool

1. Turn printer off
2. Press the left 2 buttons down and continue holding them down while turning the power button on. (all 3 are now pressed down)
3. In 3 or 4 seconds, the paper feed (jam) LED light begins to flash. (middle button)
4. Within 3 seconds as the paper feed button LED still flashes, release all 3 buttons together and immediately press down the ink cleaning button (left) and continue to hold down for about 10 - 20 seconds. As soon as the cleaning docking button LED flash, release it. That's it! You are now reset and ready to go.
NOTE: This is a strict timimg procedure and must be done fairly precisely in order for it to work. It may require several attempts for it to work for you. does work! Happy printing!

Service time or replace it. If you are considering replacing it- you may well try to take top cover off to ensure there is nothing stuck.
