I have an epson stylus photo rx620 and it keeps telling me that there is a paper jam and there isn't one! It won't scan, or print at all. I've heard there may be something wrong with the roller bars on the paper feeders (the springs??) Any help is greatly appreciated!

I need more
information to offer a definitive solution, but I can give you some information
that might help diagnose the problem. Unless you
forgot and tried to use it locked…then unlocked it after, it seems unlikely
that changing the ink could directly affect anything related to the scanner. So
especially if it still scans and now just makes more noise then before, we can reasonably
say it isn’t a faulty locking mechanism and that the gears are probably not
stripped, which would either stop it or not. So you’re looking at either something
simple like the gear assembly being dry, shifted slightly, etc. or the safety by
the lock that makes noise to tell you the device is locked is stuck somehow.
The one can be tested by removing the little plastic safety that makes the
noise when the scanner is turned on and locked; the other you might be able to
test with some WD40 and see if it runs quieter.
I'm not certain that I can help, but I am familiar with the Epson does things with their printers and all-in-ones. The thing is, printers are pretty cheap to buy. Where these companies make lotsa bucks is in the aftermarket products, which in this case is printer ink. Therefore, these printers are designed to now allow you to do much of anything with all the ink cartridges installed. I can certainly understand your frustration, and if I am wrong about this, I would like someone who considers themselves an "expert" to tell me so. Good luck, and my advice would be, next time don't buy an Epson. They are the worst company for high-priced ink, and if you use anything except Epson brand ink, you void the warranty. Sucks!
Epson's RX620 scans and prints photos at high quality. Text, however, was slow to print and not that good.
multifunction devices fall into two categories: general-purpose models
that are designed for home or small office use, and photo-oriented
devices such as this, aimed more at the enthusiastic amateur snapper.
Because it's a photography-centred device, the RX620 uses dye inks.
On photo paper, these produce more vibrant colours than pigment-based
inks, and a true gloss finish, but on plain paper produce inferior,
less vivid results.
The Stylus Photo RX620 is quite large, and looks dated - but it's
not short of modern photo-printing features. Its built-in memory card
reader is compatible with seven commonly used digital memory formats,
including xD and SmartMedia. Photographers using film will appreciate
the scanner, with its high optical resolution and transparency
On plain paper the RX620's text printing showed bandingand rough outlines on default settings. Our five-page
black-and-white text document took two and a half minutes to print.
Increasing quality settings made it even slower.
We tried realigning the print heads to improve print quality. The
RX620's manual process involves choosing the best-aligned examples from
four rows of 15 patterns. This takes good eyesight, and it can be hard
to choose between similar-looking options. We needn't have bothered -
text remained unchanged.
Photo printing was far better. The RX620 produced some of the best
prints we've seen from a multifunction device, but only at its highest
quality - and slow - setting. Our A4 test picture took 15 minutes 12
seconds to appear.
The RX620's scanner is excellent, previewing an A4 sheet in six
seconds and scanning a 6x4in photo at 600 dots per inch (dpi) in just
14.5 seconds. Negative scan times were reasonable, with a single frame
scanned at 2,400dpi in 1 minute 40 seconds.
The RX620 can perform many advanced functions without being attached
to a computer, and its colour screen has a clear menu system. Prints
can be made directly from memory cards, photo prints or even film.
There are four document copying settings, but results using the default
Text quality are adequate for most office purposes.
The RX620 isn't a brilliant multifunction device. It does many
things well, but its printer is too slow, and simply not good enough on
