Epson PX700W has a paper jam warning - won't clear
Epson PX700W had a paper jam. The jammed paper was removed, but the warning remains and the printer will not progress beyond the warning. I have checked every access point - and there is defintely no paper jammed now. I have turned the printer off/on - no difference. Would appreciate any advice on how to reset the printer.

Re: Epson PX700W has a paper jam warning - won't clear
Ok I was going to recommend you check all access points, under the rolls, everywhere for any trapped piece of paper but you did that - What I would like you to try is feeding a paper - insert a paper and press the feed button so it goes through the rolls without printing anything - Still won't let you ? Try turning off the printer but this time UNPLUG IT from the wall and wait around 3 minutes, plug it back in and turn on - this should reset your printer - try also restarting your computer.
If this does not work let me know for further instructions.

This means that your Epson printer has come to its end of life. In short, Epson wants you to retire your printer and buy a new one. Your Epson printer may be in good shape which is often the case. But Epson has this build-in "feature" which they want you to buy a new one.
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. All The Best: Pineworks
Thanks for using FixYa. Perform the steps below in order to solve this incidence:
Disconnect the power cord or power supply adaptor from the rear of the HP All-in-One product.
Remove the paper pack remaining in the input tray.
WARNING - Do not try to remove the jammed paper sheet yet. Trying to clear a paper jam from the front of the device can damage the print mechanism. Always clear paper jams through the rear access door.
Open the rear access door or the two-sided printing accessory.
Gently pull the jammed paper sheet out of the rollers.
If the paper tore when it was being removed from the rollers, check the rollers and wheels for torn pieces of paper that might remain inside the device. If not all the pieces of paper are removed from the device, paper jams are likely to occur again later.
Replace the rear access door or the two-sided printing accessory.
The ink cartridge is probably not inserted correctly. Unplug the
printer and manually move the carriage to a location where you can take the ink
cartridge out. Remove it and reinsert it, making sure that it is fully located, before
applying the power. Make sure that there is nothing blocking the carriage movement, such as
some remnant of paper.
