SOURCE: My Epson DX4050 keeps showing

Having had a similar problem, I can say that you almost certainly do have a paper jam in that the paper clear sensor is being prevented from dropping into a small recess under the paper path, by debris of some kind. You cannot see or access this sensor without dissembling the whole printer and lifting the mechanism clear of the plastic case. Once you know where all the fixing screws are, this can be done in a few minutes, but it is not a job that should be undertaken unless you have a fair degree of mechnical dexterity and are used to disconnecting very small plugs and ribbon assemblies. The secret to getting the printer apart is the removal of the control panel underneath which are more holding screws. This is done by lifting the rear of the panel with a small screw driver in the notch provided, and firmly pushing the panel to the rear of the printer. Once clear a small ribbon connector needs to be detached.

Hello gemma almond,

Welcome, and thank you for using FixYa!

To answer your question: Your printer will need to be cleaned inside and checked for small shards of paper jammed within the paper feed path.
If you look inside of the printer, you will see small, rubber, feed tires (wheels) that pickup the paper. These tires also ensure that the paper feeds entirely through the printer. These tires can become dry and coated in clay off of the paper you use. Once they become coated, they slip on the paper.
Use a paper towel with Windex or Rubbing Alcohol to clean up these tires and an access ink you see inside of the printer.
This should fix your issue.

Have a great day!

My Epson DX4050 keeps showing a paper jam and will not feed paper. there are no evident blockages and I have hoovered out the internals to clear any dust. The printer has been low usage.

How do you get rid of error light with no obvious paper jam on HL2140


the eror is probably caused by dust or paper slivers somewhere or a open door or the paper trat not being in right. Open everythign up look for dust and stuff then makre sure it is all closed and the tray in in right. It should then reset and the error goes out.

Usually this is from dust on sensors or a tiny sliver or paper jammed somewhere. Can be quite annoying to find and get rid of.

Dell 924 Inkjet Printer False Paper Jam


Got rid of my problem!

In an act of despair I started to poke around the inside of the printer with a wooden match. Especially I found a small black lever mentioned on a Dell web site (general paper jam help page) that could be pressed a little. It is placed just a little bit right of center behind the carriage and just above the roll that feeds the paper beneath the printer heads. I'm not sure if this was what finally did it, but now the paper jam problem has gone away.

Another thing I noticed is that my carriage is now moving to center when I open the top. When the paper jam error was present it always moved to the far left (so I could remove any jammed paper, I suspect).
