Ink smudge on right side of paper

Chances are high that the process of clearing the jam has resulted in ink being released from the cleaning/resting pad area based over on the right hand side (where the printhead sits when not in use).
This waste ink has probable come into contact with the rollers and other parts over on the right edge of the paper.
You'll probably see this ink slowly fade out and disappear over time. If it doesn't however there's something effectively feeding things so check the resting pad for a loose tube, overflow, puddles, etc...
If there's anything like that, report back (preferably with images).

I have an Epson Stylus C88 printer that I have loved. But all of a succen it pulls the paper to pint and may get one line and them wrinkles the paper and goes nuts. I hate to not be able to use it. ...

Hi there,
first off check try opening the paper so you can see the tray where the paper feeds in and check if there is some sort of jam or if anything looks loose.
Remove the cartridges and clean the roller/feeder that takes the paper in. If everything looks good then it could be the mechanical part of the feeder that has a problem and usually this happens when it wears out due to time or it has reached the maximum printing allowance.
If that's the case then a replacement would be necessary.
Hope this helps!

When the paper is fed it is pulled in w/ the bottom right side of the paper going in but not the left side, it becomes uneven and ends up jamming - what would be the reason it would grab and pull the right...

The most likely cause of the problem is an obstruction on the left side of the paper path - most likely a shred of paper from a previous jam. You can estimate where to look by how far the paper goes in before it starts to twist to the side. Sometimes I've had to use a dental pick to snag a shred buried deep inside as an alternative to dismantling the printer. You may find it helpful to use a small mirror to look underneath or behind rollers while you search for the culprit.

Another possibility is one side of a dual pickup roller (two rollers on a single shaft) is worn out. That is unlikely; except for large format units most printers use a single pickup roller.

My printer will not grab the paper

I have an R2400 and it is very finicky about grabbing the paper. I have to hand feed sheets of thick matte paper one at a time with just the right amount of pressure and even then sometimes it takes two tries. Make sure you keep the rollers very clean.

Paper fed thru several sheets at a time, and now all of them are stuck , cannot pull out from top or finished sheet tray

Try pulling out the center sheets first, as they are not in contact with any rollers, also if you look inside on the left side of the printer you will see gears that drive the paper through that you can turn with your fingers to drive the paper either toward the exit or toward the back of the printer.

Printer has problem grabbing certain papers

i have an r1800 as well and i solved this very easily.
usually most epson papers come with a sheet feed cleaning page- a thick piece of paper, same size as the rest, with an adhesive strip in one area. ya peel off the protective coating and put this sheet in and it rubs against the wheel and grabs off lint and stuff. I have done this and it sorta works, but mostly, i think its rather inadequate. plus, not all papers come with this sheet.

so what i did was, when the printer tries to grab a page and doesnt load one and its in the error mode, remove all the paper, and get a cloth wet with isopropyl alcohol. reach in there and set it lightly against the wheel and press the paper button. the printer will try to load another sheet and it will make all of it's usual noise, and the wheel will spin, be sure it's getting wiped with the alcohol. do this three times. then let it dry. reload the paper, and voila!
