The paper jam is a very common issue that occurs in Printers. It may due to improper placement of papers in the printer, bits of paper might get stacked in the printer head, etc. Below are few top steps described by the Epson Printer Tech Support experts to fix these paper jam issues on Epson printers:

  • Turn off the printer.
  • Look for the readout, if any is existing.
  • If the paper is visible, tug it out the top immediately.
  • If the paper is out of place, gently tug the paper out of the printer.
  • Open up the paper tray.
  • Make sure that all the trays are well loaded, but not overloaded, with useless papers.
  • Open up the front as well as top covers of the printer.
  • Pull out the print cartridges gently.
  • Open up any of the back or side covers of the Epson printer.
  • Clean all the dirty parts which is there inside the printer, if necessary.
  • Reinstall all the print cartridges as well as paper trays that were removed, and close all the lid of the printer.
  • Turn on the printer again, if it was turned off.
  • Take some time to allow the printer to warm up if it has a start-up cycle.
  • Check for the printer if it is online.
  • Turning the power off and then turning it on again is necessary to reset the printer once the jam is cleared off completely.
  • Opening up and close the top as well as front cover of the printer is necessary, if it is not yet open it in order for clearing up the paper jam.
  • Push the printer button labeled as "Ready", "Start", or "Go" button to bring it back online.
  • Check for the readout, if any, then it will read "Online" if the printer is online.

SOURCE: Paper ALWAYS jams!

Check if there are any paper leftovers inside the printer from previous printing jobs and make sure there isn't any strange objects that may have fall down in the paper loading tray.
Also put the printer upside down and move it up and down to see if anything that may have fall in the paper path, can get out of the printer.

SOURCE: paper jam epson stylus 5400

1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button.
4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
7. Turn the printer off.
8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.

SOURCE: paper feeds crooked then jams?

Check feed roller for contamination, fan the paper to seperate sheets and then make sure that you are using paper of the following standard:
Paper Type Thickness Weight Single sheets
(plain paper) 0.003 to 0.004 inch
(0.08 to 0.11 mm) 17 to 24 lb
(64 to 90 g/m²)

Make sure you are using paper supports and feed guides.

Red light is constantly blinking and when try to print, there is always a paper jam


Every time there is paper jam, the printer knows the job is not completed and hence tries to re-print after the paper is removed and cover is shut.

Clear the print job from computer.
Power off the printer and Clear the paper jam (if any)
I would try to use different tray. The paper pickup roller in one path may be worn out.
eg Sheet feeder or multipurpose tray.
Load paper in new tray
Set the application to use new tray

Ensure you sue the right thickness (gsm) of the paper. Quality of paper is crucial. Too thin; too thick can affect functioning.

How to clear scanning paper jam on the scan feeder? It keep on rolling and rolling then paper jam message appear but there is no paper


This can be tricky. First of all only try to fix a scanner when you're in very good mood, otherwise you'll brake the parts. Trust me on this.
Have a good flash light, disconnect the power cord (very important), open every place where the paper runs. Go easy because you're dealing with cheap plastic parts that can easily break. If a door doesn't open don't push it.
With the flash light inspect every single inch where the paper runs. Probably you did this before, doesn't matter, do it again. You are searching for small piece (s) of paper that is entangled around the rollers. When you find one grab it with long tweezers. Be gentle, try not to tear it apart, and keep your fingers out of there. If the paper is between rollers and doesn't move try to rock the roller like paper passing through. Again, be gentle, don't force anything.
When you are sure every part is clean, repeat the operation one more time (I told you to be in a good mood).
If this doesn't work take the machine outside - or place at the garage. Open the paper tracking places and blow compressed air. I use a yard blower.
Good luck.

When i try and print it say's paper jam all the time .


Great job on removing the paper jam and trying it with a different paper. If you have already tried using different media, using 1sheet or multiple sheets on the feeder but still no difference, most probably a mechanism problem in the printer. If this is the case, I strongly suggest you contact Lexmark Technical Support to further investigate the problem. A 6-month old printer shouldn't cause you that much trouble.

ADF paper jam, when there is none


If you are receiving an Error Code 103 or a Paper Jam error, but there are no pages in the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder), follow the steps below:
  1. Close the scanning application (such as PaperPort)
  2. Turn off the scanner and the computer
  3. If you have a combination ADF with a Flatbed scanner, unplug the ADF cable from the base of the scanner
  4. Plug the ADF cable back in
  5. Turn on the scanner power
  6. Turn on the computer
  7. Try scanning again
For a Paper Jam or Error Code 103, make sure that the ADF cable in the rear is connected to the scanner base. Check the flatbed to make sure that it is clear. A page incorrectly placed on the flatbed may interfere with a page feeding through the ADF.

If your scanner stops scanning due to a paper jam in the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF), a warning dialog box appears after a few moments.

To clear a paper jam:
  1. Open the Automatic Document Feeder cover.
  2. Remove the jammed paper and close the cover.
If you are receiving a paper jam error, or if the scanner is running continuously, check to make sure the paper sensor arm is not stuck down.
  1. Open the Automatic Document Feeder cover.
  2. Look for the small black plastic arm
  3. When you press on this arm, it should move freely up and down
  4. If the arm is stuck down, please contact Technical Support for troubleshooting options
  5. Close the ADF cover.

Document Feeder jams


I got adventurous and removed the screws holding the document feeder. I then used a can of air and blew into the gears and then reassembled the feeder. It works perfectly.
