Paper feed error

I'm getting a strange error when attempting to even copy a document with this printer. It begins to feed a sheet through, then stops, reporting an 'E' on the little 'Copies' box. I then hit Cancel and it finishes feeding the paper through.

My first thought was a jam, but as it continues to feed the paper through, I don't think that is the case. Any help would be appreciated.

Cleaning paper rollers

  1. Turn off the unit, then unplug the power cord.
  2. Remove the rear access door. See the picture above.
  3. Wipe the paper rollers with a lint-free cloth lightly moistened with distilled or bottled water. Rotate the rollers with your fingers to clean all the way around. Figure 7: Paper rollers Paper feed error - c00109674.jpg
  4. Allow the rollers to dry completely, then replace the rear access door. Put the pins on the right end of the door into the holes on the right side of the rear access area, then snap the door shut.
  5. Plug the unit back in and turn it on.

Canon LBP 5050N Printer keeps coming up with paper jam. Have turned off, then turned on. Still did not fix. Can you help?

My LBP 5050N would print one page normally then stop with the next sheet just starting to feed (i.e. just touching the first feed wheel). When I took the paper tray out, there was one sheet left behind and I could pull that out easily without it tearing. It was gripped lightly at the beginning of the feed path.
Starting the printer again gave me another copy of the already-printed sheet (I guess that's Windows getting an error message from the printer and treating it as not having printed the first sheet).
As it will always print one page properly before jamming on the next one, the problem was obviously not a small piece of paper stuck somewhere.
I cleaned the rubber wheels with Isopropyl Alcohol as best I could, but they were not obviously dirty or slick/hardened with age. The result was the same.
Then I noticed that the two blue paper grips on each side of the tray showed a small gap of 1 or 2mm. I pushed them in to tighten them gently against the paper and the problem was solved.
I've been searching in many places for an answer to the 'frequent paper jam problem' and not seen this mentioned, so thought it would be useful to have it on record here.
Yeah, I was mentally challenged - I focused on the wrong thing from the beginning.

I had the same problem and HP claimed it was the roller on the feed unit. I do think they are programed to feed a little different for scaned documents than copied docs. HP gave me a new printer worth more rather than even try to fix it. Here is a tip. Take the insurance on the extended protection especially if you have a 4 unit function (fax, scanner, copier and printer) chances are 1 function will break before the end of your extended protection. You always get a new unit, rather than them fixing it. It's really worth the 50 bucks if you buy a high end unit.

Printer paper jam

Do a printer check by copying on standalone. means placing a document inside the scanner. Load 10 sheets of regular paper into the feeder then press the start button to begin copying. Try 2 copies. If it gives you the same error, then there is already an issue with the gear inside the printer.
If your unit is not under warranty anymore, log on to Click on help me find a service center to the right of the page. You will have to put in your zip code to find an epson certified servicer near to your area.
If your unit is not a year old yet, please call epson technical support.
If it copied successfully, it could be just the paper settings, or the type of paper that you are using is not supported or you might have to uninstall and re-install drivers.

Printer keeps reading paper jam

Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this, is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud
