Where is the paper sensor on epson stylus rx685?

I am getting a false paper jam message. Done all the usual including the good old vacuum. I can only think it is a faulty sensor, but where is it? Hmmm...?

I have the same exact problem of paper half torn removed but I can not see the other half anywhere. The printer has hardly worked for at the most six pages and now showing paper jam error. How do I fix it?

SOURCE: Epson Stylus D88 Plus paper jam

1. Unplug the power and USB cables from the printer. I pried open my C42UX printer, careful not to break anything. I use a flat blade screwdriver to pry it apart; there are two-three tabs at the back and two at the front. Gently push them in, and then using a bit of force pry apart the cover.
2. Next I removed the two (2) waste ink pads. They are located at the back on the left hand side. I used the flat blade screwdriver to lift up the ink pads (they were soaked). Please use rubber gloves as it gets very messy.
3. Next I took the pads to the kitchen skin and washed them with just plain hot water until they were white again. I just let the hot water run on them (the pads are about three inches long).
4. Once washed I dried them using a hair drier. (you could place it the sun for a few hours or on top of your heater or maybe in a heated oven; (make sure you do not set it on fire with too much heat).
5. Once dried I placed the pads back in the ink waste bin at the back of the printer.
6. I closed the printer cover and put back all the pieces and plugged in the USB & power cable and turned it on. (Yes the lights are still flashing).
7. Go to this link and download this software: http://inkjetprinterhelp.us/epsonSSC.html
8. Install the software and run it.
9. Select your printer and model number ( It only says C42 there is no UX, choose it anyway).It will ask if you replaced with new pads; say “YES”. Then close the window.
10. Now right click on the SSC service utility, it looks like a printer icon near your clock in the task bar.
11. Then click on reset counters. You can do all other stuff with this utility too.
12. Turn off the printer power and then turn it on again. If necessary un-plug the power cord from the back of the printer, wait 20 seconds. Plug it back in.
13. THERE YOU GO! IT WORKS AGAIN.
14. By the way I use generic ink and I fill my own cartridges. I use ink from www.atlanticinkjet.com. Great stuff.

try this and let me know it worked or not ...

SOURCE: Epson Stylus Photo R350 giving a paper jam error message

An Epson service man (he was VERY kind to suggest this) told me to use a weak detergent solution on the rollers, NOT alcohol as that will dry out the material the rollers are made of. Although the problem has recurred a couple of times, it's worth repeating when necessary. I actually activate the 'print' command so it tries to feed in paper, while I FIRMLY hold a piece of fine cotton cloth stretched over a thin plastic ruler, which I hold down where the paper feed grabs its paper. The printer has a couple of tries to feed paper, reports an error message (because there was no paper) and I activate it again, thus exposing the WHOLE of the feed wheel to the cleansing cloth! WORTH A TRY!

SOURCE: Epson Stylus TX110 printer paper jam light flashing but no paper

Hello there
You may not see a paper jam.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

SOURCE: My Epson 1290 (some years old) doesn't grab paper,

That could be from the rubber rollers not being able to grip the paper. They get polished or shiney over time with use and age. Then they slip or pull incorrectly and you get your problems. There are other things that can cause this but nothing worth fixing.

Fixing the rubber rollers is easy. You need some ispropyl rubbing alcohol and a paper towel. Make sure it is isopropyl type as this won;t attack other parts. Simpley wet the paper towel and wipe down the rubber rollers. You will see the rubber go from a dull shine to dull flat rubber. This takes off the buildup on the rubber and lets it grip again. Eventually the rubber will age harden and this trick won;t work but this can give you years more service.

Check the rollers (the inlet and outlet for the paper) and blow them out with a blower,vacuum, or a can of air. That should "fixya" right up. Lmk if it doesn't and I'll get down to specifics with more info from you as well

Paper jam in px 710


The next step it to test each sensor, both mechanically and electrically. Get really good light on the sensors, sometimes little hairs cause a false read. Verify that each sensor opens and closes electrically when actuated.

I HAVE A EPSON STYLUS SX218 IT IS ALWAYS SAYING PAPER JAM EVERY TIME I WANT TO PRINT AND THERE IS NO PAPER JAMED IN IT . IT IS ONLY 1 MONTHS OLD.


This error message is displayed by the printer when paper is jammed in one or more locations. In such a case, users are recommended to remove the jammed paper from the specified location. The entire paper path must be checked for any pieces of paper. To stop the message, open and close the top most cover of the printer. Lastly, verify the flags and the sensors. If the problem persists, the cause of the error message could be a broken sensor or sensor lever.

Epson Cx3200 paper jam


Then there is something stuck in the paper feed path which is holding up the sensor flag making it think there is paper in it.

Or maybe the sensor flag has been broken off by yanking paper out the wrong way when it gets stuck.

Get your vacuum cleaner and stick the hose down the paper feed path and see if it suck out a push pin, piece of paper paper, fur ball, eraser, coin, toe nail, false eye lash etc (all of which I have removed from machines with "paper jams")
