This copier has been excellent to us for many years, but now it is having a problem with taking/feeding a piece of paper in to copy. The flashing red triangle lights come on. I have taken out the toner cartridge and replaced it and the problem still occurs.
If you have a flashing red triangle light it, that means there is no toner. When you open the toner door and replace does the machine run and the scan table go back and forth for awhile before the the light comes on?
Please check if the rubber roller that pulls the paper inside the machine check if it is clean because after long use this roller becomes so smooth ddue to dust and doesnt take in the paper , first clean it ,wipe with wet towel try again

When the paper does not feed straight, dirty or sticky rollers can cause it to jamb or crinkle, also failure to remove all traces of paper from a previous paper jamb will cause further paper jambs. Check for tiny pieces of at the edges of the rollers, and remove these pieces of paper. The rollers may be dirty or sticky and causes the paper to not feed straight. Try cleaning the rollers with methylated spirits.
It sounds like the feed tire is dirty, OR the feed clutch has sprung. Remove the paper tray On the right side of the copier where you feed the single sheet, you pull down the door. This exposes a fat gray or black feed roller. Take a clean dry towel and dampen it with wd 40. Gently wipe the roller with the cloth turning the roller toward the paper exit direction. Let the WD 40 soak in for ten minutes, replace the paper tray and try to make a copy. If it does, you need a feed roller which will rquire a service cal/take it in. If still no feed the 'clicking' may be a sprung clutch, service call required.

Load Legal paper in Cassette 1. If you want to print using only one piece of paper currently loaded in the Manual Feed Slot, click [Resolve Error]. If you want to feed paper from the cassettes, remove the loaded paper from the Manual Feed Slot.
1. clean the feed rollers 2. check if the feed rollers work 3 check if have a piece of destroyed papper in the road of the paper 4 clean the sensors (all cleans with ajax) 5 the feed rollers you can clean with the WD40
I kept running the maintenance roller cleaning with paper in the feed and eventually I was able to see the tip of the plastic piece that had fallen in as I pulled the paper through with my fingers, I was able to get the whole piece and now the printer is golden.
If the machine sees the ADF ( auto document feeder) but does not feed the paper? Does it try to feed the paper? Does it pull the paper is a little and jam? If the machine sees the ADF and it starts to feed the paper but jams --- clean the feed rollers/ tires with rubber restorer or a high alcohol base cleaner. Also a mylar could be pulled into the paper path blocking the feeding of the paper. Take a thin piece of cardboard ( like the devider in a case of pop) and slide the cardboard about 3- 6 inches into the feed just past the feed roller. Gently pull back out and try to feed paper again. If those do not work and the machine does see the ADF, you may need switch, sensor, actuator or feed motor.
My CX4800 developed the same problem. It was an excellent machine until then. I tried everything I could think of, and finally decided it must be the rather large feed in rollers at the right of the paper bin (one below and one above the paper) that had worn too smooth to pull the paper in. It works fine if I will give the sheet a "push" when it starts to go down - but who has time to stand there and push each piece in! It would really be nice if Epson would provide us with inexpensive replacement rollers and instructions for installing them. Guess they had rather we just buy a new printer - which I did, a CX7800, only to find that it will not take the heavy weight photo paper. :-(
