Re: Epson Photo RX510
Hi when you switch it on have you tried holding down the on off button for about 10 seconds as this often resets most printers. Also when you sya thier is no paper jammed in printer are you absolutely sure their is not even i tiny bit of paper still stuck as it only takes a tiny bit of paper to make this message appear. If you are confident in removing the paper feed witch is difficult to do as you need to make sure it goes back perfect as if it isnt the paper wont feed. Alot of people say their is no paper jammedand they call somebody out to repair the printer and they get charged a fortune for removing a tiny bit of paper. If holding the button down dont work then try switching the plug on whilst holding down the on off button let me know how you get on ok

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!
Have you had a recent paper jam? Ensure that all the paper from the jam is out of the machine. On the back of the HP there is an section that you can remove to make it easier to get at paper jams. Open it up and make sure there is no paper stuck back there.
May be the problem is at paper sensor, that dirty. The sensor is at bottom of head casing. When paper feeding, the sensor not get the light back, so the printer "think" that no paper. Try to clean paper sensor.
Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
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.
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.
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.
If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
see alternative if the problem is still not solved.
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.
