It seems likely that the feed mechanism has been dislodged or broken in some way.

Look down into the place where the paper goes (the "automatic sheet feeder" or ASF) and you should see a fat wheel with a grey ribbed rubber facing. Place a single sheet of paper in the ASF and do a test print (right click the printer icon and select properties). Watch to see what happens in the ASF. The plastic panel behind the sheet of paper should move forward to push the sheet against the rotating rubber wheel, which should then feed the paper into the print position. If this is not happening you will need to dismantle the printer to investigate further.

If you wish to do this, post a new comment to this effect and I will provide further help.

Epson xp430 paper jam, but I can't find any jam!


They don't tell lies :>) Even the smallest piece of paper over the sensor will record a jam. This often happens when you have a jam and you pull the paper and it tears a piece off. Open all the doors, remove the paper tray, remove all the toner or cartridges and look with a flashlight. Always pull paper jam paper in the direction it was going, undo tensioner clips if present and pull paper evenly and slowly as not to tear the paper. If you do, keep the paper and find the piece that fits the piece that is missing.

Having said that, see the link

Locate one piece of CARD STOCK paper and manually feed it up against the feed assembly and into the feed.Must be CARD STOCK PAPER, regular paper will not work. the idea is too dislodge any pieces of paper that may be broken off inside the rollers, and not visible to the eye. Repeat this process until the error goes away.

Epson stylus CX5400 Won't stop jamming!


If the paper isnt being pulled in the chances are that you have a foreign object in the paper path. First of all turn the printer off & disconnect all cables. Turn the printer upside down and give a good shake, with luck the blockage should fall out. If not then you need to be a bit brave, make sure the print carriage is parked fully to the right and out of the way. You will need an A4 (approx) sized piece of stiff cardboard such as the backing from an A4 note pad. Insert this into the paper feed locating it between the feed rollers on the R/H side. Then push quite firmly to overcome the spring pressure, when you feel it push through about a half inch stop and open the printer to see what is being pushed through. Push the card fully through and retrieve the foreign object (I have found everything from paperclips, curtain hooks and even a golf tee!). Push the card through fully and out of the printer. Always remove paper jams etc, in the direction of the paper feed whenever possible as pulling anything backwards can dislodge or break the sensor flags.
Hope this helps. Please take a moment to rate this solution, thanks.

Epson R300


First of all turn the printer off & disconnect all of the cables. Turn it over and give it a shake, you'll be amazed at what gets inside the feed hopper. Next try a stiff piece of A4 card (the backing from an A4 notepad for instance), feed the card into the paper feed and push it through quite hard to overcome the spring resistence. Once it has started to go through open the lid and check if it has pushed anything through the rollers. Feed the card all the way through the mech and pull out of the front. Hopefully the card will have cleared the paper path of any objects and reseated the sensors.
Good luck.

Epson Stylus 580rx won't identify vellum paper


Ran into the same problem. The problem is that the printer's paper sensor sees through the vellum and therefore doesn't think any paper moved into the print position. To use vellum, fold up 1/4" edge on a standard peice of print paper and place the leading edge of the vellum under the flap. Place the paper and vellum into the printer and print. The printer will pull in the paper and the vellum together. Make the paper fold tight and straight to prevent jamming. You will need to feed one sheet at a time. Also the Epson inks take a long time to dry on vellum. I let mine dry overnight.
