Have you checked to see whether the sensors are not blocked by excessive paper dust? Do you know whether the printer is set to pull in a specific type or weight of paper?
Oftentimes, if you have printed on a heavy weight type of paper, or on a glossy type of paper for printing photos, when you next try to print,you forgot that the printer had been set for a different kind of paper ... one which requires the printers transport rollers to grab a heavier, or shinier type of paper, and now, when you try to print on regular paper, the printer;s rollers are simply not able to grab that kind of paper. so no matter of any types of paper or times they try to fix it, if they do not set it using the printer's 'properties' software button, they will not get it done right, and the printer will simply slip or slide but not grab the paper correctly.
Do it from within the printer's control panel and you will have a much better chance of having it work right.
Try that and see if it doesn't solve your problem.

Try to look on the input tray maybe there are some foreign object that might block the paper,because this kind of printer has a durable pick up roller.

Tip

Manual Counter Reset Method


To manually reset the Ink Jet Counter that compels you to clean your waste pads. For the tip on how to clean your ink waste pads go here.

Please Note: In some cases, your printer may be leaking ink so much and so often that not only does your ink pads need cleaning, but you may need to replace the ink reservoir on your printer or you will have a leaking mess on your hands. This is a decision and judgment only you can make. If your printer is leaking quite of lot of ink, you may have to take it to an authorized Epson Repair Shop or Person. Find an authorized location by starting at Epson.com

The solution below is valid for most of the following printer models listed below this solution, some listed may not work, some not listed may also work it varies as this method is listed below is illegal for an authorized Epson Tech to release.

Thanks to the many user boards on the Internet for this solution that I know has worked for people I've helped here on FixYa.

Don't be discouraged if it doesn't work the first time. The key is in pressing the buttons exactly at the same time. So if this doesn't work the first time, try again and try again. Most people state they get it eventually.

[thanks to fixyourownprinter.com for the crux of this particular solution]

"Printer Onboard Control Panel Key Sequence"

"Press and hold the paper feed, paper switch and the power switch.

Once the power light and paper light flashes twice and the other lights are flashing release the paper feed and paper switch "and then press the paper feed switch".

The power, paper and ink lights will flash twice. At this point the protection counter has been reset."

Don't give up, if it does not reset the first time. The timing is tricky for some people.

Supported Epson Models that I am aware of, others not listed may work and some listed also may not work, it varies but don't be discouraged to try and try again.

You can also try the software download solution listed in this tip I posted.

Preprinted 4 part paper crunching up when being printed in epson lq680 printer


Mustafa:

The printer is not meant to use multi-copy carbon invoices. The cause of your problem is the double-feed prevention pad below the paper pickup roller. When the first form is fed, the double feed prevention pad will stop multiple paper feeds. With multi-page carbons, the paper feed roller is trying to feed the form, and is pulling the top page of the form into the feed rollers while the double-feed prevention pad is stopping the bottom form from feeding and the top and bottom pages are sliding because of the carbon paper between the sheets. The only solution that I know of is to buy a printer with a tractor feed and pre-printed fan-fold forms with tractor feed strips on the sides of the forms.

Probably not - a belt was either yanked out of its cog or a roller was popped out of its bearings. Since you have nothing left to lose just dismantle the printer (only a screwdriver is needed) and try to put the parts back together. If you fail, just get a new one.

My Epson Stylus SX515W won't feed 250gsm greetings cards, even if I help them a bit! My old Colour 680 worked fine.


Epson recommends you use Epson media if a third-party heavy (card stock) media has feed problems.

The printer (depending on the model) should be able to take 255 g/m2 or 300 g/m2 genuine Epson media.

I wish that I could be of more helps.

Have you run the Epson printer utility? This should answer your problem if you run it. I had a similar problem and the utility reccomended to get the printer serviced as a component had become faulty. If you dont have the utility you can download it from the epson site for free.
