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 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.

I've got an HP R40 multifunction printer. Yes, it is old, but it don't know of another printer out there that will do what it does. I'm having a problem when I try to copy something, it will scan the...

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.

Put the pages in the "multiscan" all at once, not just one sheet at a time. The Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) will feed one sheet of your document at a time untill all of the pages are scanned...

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
