Re: paper jam

OK, If rollers are not moving smoothly and you hear a small grinding noise, here is what to do to fix the jamming problem:
Remove the Right side cover and expose the gears that drive the rollers. The main drive roller you may see there is probably not engaging the other gears. This is due to the small plastic bearing on the roller shaft (very small & tan color). It has worn down causing the problem. Use a small screwdriver to gentlly rotate the small bearing 180 degrees on the shaft. This will lift the gear into place and stop the jamming.
Good luck!

SOURCE: Jam in the document feeder

I think I found my answer. You don't have to un do any screws. Lift up the cover to the automatic feeder. You will see a spring on the side of the mechanism towards the front; remove the spring; that will allow you to lift up the little arm the spring was attached to and remove the roller or bar and the light blue/green plate just under it. Then you will be able to see the jammed paper, which which I was able to carefully pull out with a pair of tweezers. Some was under rubber rollers, but when I pulled the paper sideways it slipped out. Now it works!

Paper feeder stuck

If the paper feeder stuck, do the following:
  1. Gently pull any jammed paper out from the output tray or sheet feeder.
  2. If paper is stuck inside, open the printer cover and remove the jammed paper, including any torn pieces. Then close the printer cover.
  3. 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.
  4. Load the paper correctly.
  5. Press the cp_button_14.gif 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.

    Documnet feeder jam

    Check input paper feeder at top too - easy to miss. Top flips open with a firm (but not excessive) pull, so you can look there.

    If you are sure you've opened and looked under every available panel on the printer (there are many!), turn it off and unplug for half a minute. Make sure all panels are back properly in place, but leave out the paper tray (and no paper either in the rear input paper feeder).

    Plug in and turn on. Wait for it to finish its start-up sequence - it should complain about no paper.

    Check the paper is flat and straight in the paper tray, and no excess room between paper and guides, and put it in again.

    Print test page.

    How is it now?

    Hi I get this 250.07 paper jam check mp feeder on Lexmark t644

    Please try this

    1. Turn off the printer.
    2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
    3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
    4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
    5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
    6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
    7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
    8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
    9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
    10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.

    alternative :
    Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

    Feeding paper for scanning/faxing - e-studio350

    If u put stack of papers on the feeder, but it didnt pick well or paper jam occur, u need to check the feeder unit. Normally roller is wear and tear, foreign materials inside the feeder and etc will cause paper jam on feeder.

    Unable to print properly keeps printing on one line

    Sounds like there is something jammed in the paper feeder, or maby its the paper feeder itself. Check to see if the path the paper follows through the feeder is completely clear. Sometimes paper is left in the feeder from previous paper jams.
