Paper not feeding correctly into epson cx4800

(1) All of a sudden the paper feeding into my epson cx4800 isn't feeding properly when I go to print something. sometimes it won't "grab" the paper at all and other times it will grab it but print too high or too low on the paper. checked to see if there was something stuck in mechanism, can't see anything. (2) Also, when I want to make a copy of a document, I lay it on the glass, set the copy counter to "1", press "start B&W", and the paper jams and the error light comes on - it won't let me clear it so I have to turn the machine off. Any ideas?

I had the same problem and found a small spring was loose and interfering with the paper. The Spring was on the right side as you look at the printer, near the bottom of the paper feeder. I took it out and it works fine, for now.

SOURCE: Epson CX4800 no longer will grab paper.

Problem with paper feeder, Take to epson service center for replacing. Or if you have experience in maintenance, you can add thickness of pick up rubber at paper feeder mechanic (only top side). You can use sponge double tape (about 1 mm thick, and 1,5 cm wide) below the rubber

When the paper does not feed straight, dirty or stickyrollers can cause it to jamb or crinkle, also failure to remove all traces ofpaper from a previous paper jamb will cause further paper jambs.
Check for tiny pieces of at the edges of the rollers, and remove these piecesof paper. The rollers may be dirty or sticky and causes the paper tonot feed straight.
Try cleaning the rollers with methylated spirits.

I am trying to print my guest receipts and it is only printing out a quarter of the sheet with no ink.


hello, lets see if we can seperate problem with computer and printer, try running printers self test, i am curios if the machine will print properly, turn printer off, then hold paper feed button and turn machine on, paper will feed and print, once the first test pass, if you want to print the rest, press paper feed button, and machine will print and cut paper, this test is rather a little long, but it will give you info regarding paper feed, and cutting as well as impressions. if paper is dragging, check to see if the paper in machine is in correctly, you might want to check this out first, if the paper is in correctly, then problem is feeding, this is a little hard to clean, but you might want to try some isoproply alcohol and put some on the lead in paper, just enough to get paper wet, and try to allow machine to feed in, or maybe, if paper is already feeding in wet some area before going into machine with alcohol, and press feed button, and allow the paper to feed thru. tear off paper and try the printer test again. if still fails then machine has a problem and will need service.

Epson stylus sx515w paper will not feed properly


pls make sure that you loaded the paper correctly.
Open the paper support and pull up the extensions. Open the output tray and pull out the extensions. Then flip up the paper stopper on the last extension, unless you’re printing on legal-size paper. . Flip the feeder guard up, out of the way, then squeeze the edge guide and slide it left. Insert paper, printable side up, against the right side and beneath the tab. Load paper short edge first, no matter which way your document faces.
Load letterhead or pre-printed paper top edge first.
Do not load paper with holes punched in it.
Do not load transparencies.
Do not load paper above the paper.4.3.4.jpg arrow on the edge guide.
Check the paper package for any additional loading instructions. 5. Slide the edge guide to the edge of the paper, but not too tightly. if you put the paper correctly and still not feeding the paper correctly, that means the rollers of the printer is broken

Epson Sx200- Paper wont feed


Just a thought,as I had a similar problem.The instructions are abysmal,but it may be worth having a look where you feed the paper in and squeezing the grey plastic gizmo,and moving it to the left to allow the paper to enter the feed properly.

EPSON TM U200 POS PRINTER


try a self test print(hold feed and power up) if the printer still does not print check the ribbon to make sure it is inserted correctly. If it is still does not print it could be the printhead or pressure setting. you could also try printing with carbon paper to see if the pins in the printhead are striking the paper.

if the printer is still not marking the paper you may need to replace the printhead or printhead cable.
