SOURCE: paper won't feed

My CX4800 developed the same problem. It was an excellent machine until then. I tried everything I could think of, and finally decided it must be the rather large feed in rollers at the right of the paper bin (one below and one above the paper) that had worn too smooth to pull the paper in. It works fine if I will give the sheet a "push" when it starts to go down - but who has time to stand there and push each piece in! It would really be nice if Epson would provide us with inexpensive replacement rollers and instructions for installing them. Guess they had rather we just buy a new printer - which I did, a CX7800, only to find that it will not take the heavy weight photo paper. :-(

Sorry I couldn't help more.

SOURCE: paper won't feed, HP printer dock series 3

I had this problem (among many others with my printer). I found that just cleaning the front roller with a damp paper towel fixed it. Wipe it carefully and let it dry before reloading the paper. The rubber on the roller seems to lose it's ability to pick up the paper if it sits unused for any length of time, so wiping it with warm water and drying it works. Good luck. Lynette

Rollers could be worn out. Also could be a problem with the paper sensor. Not sure what type of sensor this printer uses. Some just use a pressure switch, others use a light sensor.

Roller


If nothing happens no carrier movementor paper feed you probably have a bad keyboard.
If the carrier moves but no feed the index motot may need to be lubed.
If the roll moves but the paper dosen't you may have debris on the paper tray or bad lower fed rolls.

The paper pick up fingers and rollers get smooth and polished with use and then slide on the paper. Clean the rollers and pick mechanisms with isopropyl alcohol to rejuvenate them and restore their grip on the paper. Do this as far along the paper path as you can get, using Q Tips where necessary and turn the rollers to clean their whole surfaces.

Paper is pulled through crooked printing is not straight. how doyou clean the rollers?


This can be caused by several factors. It could be that there's something(like small foreign objects in the paper feed area) causing the paper to get crooked. It can also be caused by improperly adjusted paper guide or the paper is not in good condition.

Can you look into the paper tray and actually see if the feed rolls are turning? You may have either a bad paper feed clutch, or the solonoid that releases the feed rollers is bad.
Also the paper tray should move up and down when the paper feeds to move the paper against the rollers. Up to feed down to eliminate paper drag. One of those fingers that raise the tray may be binding against the bottom of the tray not allowing proper movement.
If you can get a flash light and observe what is going on. Then let me know.

Rollpaper feeding problem on R800 Epson


try to look at your rollers made of black rubber, if they are shining then they need cleaning, if you know how to open the unit to get to all these rollers then you might be able clean them yourself with laquer thinner and a rag, where gloves and turn the rollers into the soaked rag and keep turning tight with lots of elbow grease until all rollers lost that shine.

Paper Jam


The problem is that after the cover sensor clip is replaced, the logic that tells the printer to feed the paper just to the beginning of the input roller is corrupted. The feeder roller (grey one at the paper feed) rolls to feed the paper and once the paper get to the input roller, another switch detect the paper, that tells the logic to change the direction of the input roller to feed the paper to the cartrige.

There's should be a way to reset the logic part of the printer to get it working right. Maybe pushing a combination of the front panel buttons.

Try playing with the power/green or power/"X" while unplug and plug the power cord.

Good Luck!!! email me with more sugestions/ideas... jmjc_65 at hotmail...

Paper feed rolls is rolling over the paper...how to get access to those rolls


  1. Feed the paper manually into the printer:
    1. Place a sheet of plain A4 paper in the paper feed tray.
    2. Move the paper support on the left-hand side to the left end of the paper.
    3. Press the paper feed button.
    4. If the paper does not feed, continue with step 2.
  2. Check for any obstructions in the paper feed path:
    1. Disconnect the cables from the back of the printer.
    2. Open the front of the printer and check for anything that may be blocking the paper path.
    3. Close the front lid and remove any paper from the paper feed tray.
    4. Holding the printer in both hands, turn it upside down to see if anything falls out of the paper feed area. (Sometimes objects such as pens, paper clips and so on can fall into the paper feed area and cause blockages.)

You can clean with special cleaning paper which ca be used clean the rollers............

Paper feed


If the print-out is an 'alien-like' one, the problem is on the sensor of the printer. The sensor is on the opposite side of the gears. Under the black cover.
