Question about Epson Stylus C86 InkJet Printer
Without warning, 8 1/2 x 11 paper seems too large for the paper holder. Only one page will print but the paper grabs at an angle, wrinkles the paper and prints at an angle. If I need to print more than one page, only one page will print before the second page gets caught on the right side (facing the Epson logo on the front). Of course the ink is smeared and the writing illegible.
I checked for small paper shreds throughout the feeder. I made sure that the paper guide was secure on the left side (for 8 1/2 x 11 paper). I unplugged it and tried to clean everything and look for any abnormality.
Try feeding the paper through manually if you cant do this then try printing a blank page and see if this still wrecks the paper if it does then it does sound like something is jammed on the roller the best way to clean this is with a blast of air from a compressor this is the only sollution as it will cost more to replace the parts than it would to buy another printer if it is still under warranty they should replace it for you if not you could take it to a computer repair shop where they will strip it down adn rebuild it for you this is a paper feed problem but im sure their must be somethig sticking in the way or maybe the paper feed has come lose at the one end sorry i couldnt help you any more ........................................
