Printers usually jam or block paper for the following reasons:
There is a small piece of paper somewhere that is stuck.
The rollers are worn out and are too smooth to grab the paper.
There is something mechanically blocking the paper path, pencils, paperclips, etc.
Paper is wet (high humidity areas can cause this.
Paper is too thick, is being re-used or has bent edges.
Paper guides are set too far apart and the paper enters at an angle.
Broken parts. Usually caused by someone forcefully removing a paper jam.
If you have tried all of the above let us know and we can go from there.

Epson wide format printer stops in the middle of a job saying paper jam. But I know it is not paper jam.


I do not know this particular printer but several things might be wrong. Make sure all the paper handling sensors and rollers are clean. Check to see if the next sheet of paper is sticking to the first and blocking a sensor. Check to see if the paper is advancing properly. Sometimes the roller will spin but slips on the paper, if the printer senses that the paper is not advancing properly it will throw a paper jam code. Make sure you are using fresh, crisp paper and the holding tray is at least half full.

Printer pulls one page all the way thru w/o printing anything on paper and then pulls 3 to 5 pages all the way thru and then 1 page thru and paper gets stuck in middle...then red light comes on and blinks...


check for low ink level it need to replace the color or the black cartridge click on the printer status to see what cartridge is near empty, or you can check for pending job right click on the printer then open it if you can see that it has a pending job delete it all

Printer did not show ready status, showing 13.20 error


13.20 is a generic jam message that appears when there is a piece of paper stuck in the printer or one of the flags in the paper path is stuck in the wrong position. Most times this error occurs when one of the flags in the facedown assembly is in the wrong position. One thing you can try is to turn off the power and open the right side door below the manual tray and sitck a piece of letter paper in that opening and then close the door. It will not quite fit right but try your best. Now turn on the printer and after initialization and warm up the printer will attempt to clear the paper path and will feed that sheet thru. If it goes thru the error may now be gone, but most times the paper will jam entering the facedown assembly and stop since there is a piece of paper stuck up there or the the flag is preventing the paper from moving. If it comes thru but you still have the message then one of the 2 flags in that assembly is stuck. Good Luck.

The top feed isn't working for faxing and scanning


The first check is to see if the left rear hinge assembly is broken, it keeps the lid lifted so it won't feed. Otherwise you need to check for any paper clips or scraps in the paper path area, you need to use a flashlight and look both down thru the top and also up thru the bottom where the paper passes thru.

Paper won't feed into printer


I have taken a piece of cardboard, like the ones you get with a new shirt, size it to 8.5 x 11, and tell the printer to print a test page. hand feed the cardboard thru, and most times it will clean out the residual paper pieces stuck in the internal rollers. I have used this method several times and was successful 99% of the time. It isn't rocket science, but It may work. You will probably have to push the cardboard thru, but do not force it to much. It will not go thru easily on its own. Just a suggestion.

Optra 2450 error 241


24X Paper Jam message displays, Paper jammed over the Pass
Thru Sensor. (The printer displays the value of X for the paper tray
where the error occurs. Example: 241 is a Paper Jam Tray 1)

That is a quote directly from the service manual. You have a paper jam, or some tiny bits of paper stuck over the pass thru sensor. Remove debris and clean out to fix your problem.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.
