the top feeder is supposed to be able to open giving you complete access to the workings of the top feeder
and also when removing the paper work gently, and check to see if you removed the complete page and that a piece hasn`t torn off and is still stuck inside
Gently pull any jammed paper out from the output tray or sheet feeder.
If paper is stuck inside, open the printer cover and remove the jammed paper, including any torn pieces. Then close the printer cover.
If paper remains near the sheet feeder, press the paper feed roller lever inside the paper feeder to release the jammed paper, then carefully pull it out.
Load the paper correctly.
Press the stop button to resume printing.
If the printer continues to jam or misfeed paper, and you are certain that there are no foreign objects lodged down inside the paper feed area, your printer may require service. Please call Epson technical support for further assistance.
There are two feeders on this MP730. There is the sheet feeder on top and there is the paper feeder on the back. You can have problems with both.
The sheet feeder on top.
If the problem is things go through somewhat sideways, and if this is the problem, stuff some postit notes between the back grey thing and the feeder tray to eliminate this problem. Add or subtract to the wad to make it right.
If the problem is it does not grip the sheet, what I used to do is to help it through by one sheet at a time, painful. I got frustrated with this so for scanning, I have a Snap Scan 1500, which is faster and better.
The paper feeder.
A small piece of paper left in the paper infeed path can cause a major problem. You cannot have anything in the paper path that will skew the paper, so you must get any little bit of restriction out of there.
As the printer gets older, you will have to produce your own guides to prevent this skewing, as the guides on the printer do not do this well. I use clamps and wooden guides to keep things in line.
It is talking about the flap that is on the very top just above where one puts in an original to auto feed on to the glass, this access cover is required to be open and closed by the machine because it feels something is holding it open or its switch that tells it such is stuck. Maybe a jam from last original fed into it..
The cover once open check around for paper fragment and inspect little levers that hang down, one is stuck or there is paper stuck in Document feeder
I have found that often label bits, paper clips, punch bits and small corners of paper often get in the path, I use a piece of laminate cut so it has a v or a point and feed it in the document feeder, manually inserting it in the direction a piece of paper normal travels in it.
Push it all the way threw not pulling back (bad for it) to do so poke the point threw, you will need the top cover open and lift off the glass, so you can grap the point and pull the laminate threw.
Lift the cover to the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder) and remove any paper debris from the rollers. Also, clean the rollers with a very damp cloth and a dab od dish washing detergent.
Also, check to see that the spring loaded lever is in place.
Clear the jam from the automatic document feeder (ADF)
Make sure the product is turned off and the power cord is unplugged.
Grasp the upper edge of the automatic document feeder (ADF) assembly and open it.
Raise the roller assembly.
Gently remove any jammed paper from the ADF.
Lower the roller assembly.
Close the ADF assembly.
Plug the power cord back into the product.
Press the Power button ( ) to turn the product on.
Try the print job again.
