Question about Epson CX7800 Stylus Color All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

Paper jammed-cleared by pulling paper up& backwards Got a "E-90

After the paper pulled in the paper sota one side first, I went & pulled the paper (all in the paper holder) backwards & then it wouldn't work at all. It had a message come into the little display - it said "E-90 -call for service" I talked to Epson on the web & the phone. They had me unplug from computer to printer, then from the power. Wait & try turning it on again. I did this 3 times & no correction of the code E-90 nor running. Is there something I can fix myself or is it unrepairable by me?

Pulling paper out of a printer "backwards" will usually break a gear that is made to feed the paper in one direction.

Epson should be able to sell you the new gear and also when you order it - ask for the installation information or Service Manual to cover the replacement of the broken gear!! It helps a lot in putting the new gear in.

Can't print pictures from my laptop. The printer always says paper jam but there isn't one


"Paper Jam" issues are common with printers. They most often occur right after there has been a paper jam. Most people (not necessarily YOU), don't take the time to read how to properly clear a paper jam in their printers and often yank the jammed sheets backward thru the paper tray. Most times you should remove the cover in the back and pull the jam FORWARD out the rear, or if the jam made it close to the output tray, then FORWARD thru to the output tray. Pull sheets backward can cause two issues. It makes tearing the paper easier. This can result in tiny pieces being caught in places where the printer detect them as a jam. The other issue is that pulling backward can damage the feed rollers that pull the paper into the machine, as well as the mechanical sensors that detect paper jams. If you cannot find ANY shards of paper in the machine, you may have printer damage that results in the jam indication.

I have a cannon Pixma Mp495. THis morning some paper that was wrinkled went through it when it was printing. THere was not any paper left in the printer. I did pull a sheet out the top that was stuck...


I believe that you tried to turn the printer off, then on. Did you? If so, and the problem persists, I belive that the jam sensor became damaged.

In a last instance, you can turn off the printer and see if you can turn a little (with your fingers) the roller that pulls the paper.

Several sheets entered the printer at the same time and stuck. can't pull them forward or backward.


Step 1 Clear any loose paper from the paper tray. This will help you locate the jam. You will find it either in front, near the paper tray, or in the rear.

Step 2 To clear a paper jam near the paper tray, grip the paper and pull it firmly but gently from the printer. If you find a stack of papers jammed, grab from the middle of the stack and pull.

Step 3 For a rear jam, remove the back of the printer. When you find a free edge on the paper, grip it firmly and pull it out.

Step 4 Replace the back cover. Press the "Resume" button or turn off the printer, and then turn it back on. Your settings should reset.

Step 5 Try printing another document

My canon MP620 Paper Jam Pull out the Jam Paper Al


There are pieces of paper stock on the sensor, when the paper jam happened then you pull out the paper did you get the whole page of the paper or have missing pieces? open the paper guide, turn off and on the printer and observe the unusual objects in the roller, this error is caused by objects in the sensor.

How do I fix a paper jam? I have a piece of paper that went in slightly sideways, and now its jammed. It's almost halfway in, so I'm afraid to pull on it in case it rips and pieces are left. Is there way...


You won't be able to make the printer work backward and push the paper out. Start by powering OFF the printer (unplug it if necessary). Then look to open up the front/top/back as appropriate to clear the paper jam. Frequently, if you pull straight and carefully (slowly), the paper will come out in one piece and solve your problem. If any pieces are left inside, remove them all before attempting to power ON the printer. If in doubt as to clearing, read the user manual - troubleshooting section on clearing paper jams. Good Luck!

Printer will not feed paper correctly


You may have a foreign object blocking the path. Move the slide switch to envelope.

Use a piece of heavy stock (backing of a writing pad) put through backwards in the path of the paper output. Be careful of sensors(little black tabs) for the ink head, on either side. If you break them you will have bigger problems.

Lift the scanner assembly while tilting on its back and push the stock to free the foreign object out til you can grab it. Do all this with the printer unplugged.

 

Good luck - It worked for me.
