Epson RX520 feed problem when using glossy photo paper

When I use either A4 or 6" by 4" glossy paper on my RX 520 I get feed problems. The paper is drawn into the printer, but only marginally. A paper jam is then reported. I have tried the envelope adjust lever but that didn't work so I have left that lever in the standard position. It seems that the mechamism that is supposed to cath the paper and feed it through is just missing somehow, bit only with photo paper. Standard paper is fine.
Hope you can help,

I have just had a similar problem with my RX600. I had to use the option LAYOUT and select 'with border' otherwise I got a paper jam. Hope this helps.

Paper not feeding for epson nx400

Check the following:

  • If paper doesn't feed, remove it from the sheet feeder. Reload it against the right side, behind the tab, then press in the tab on the edge guide and slide it against the paper. Make sure the paper is not above the arrow mark inside the edge guide.

  • If multiple pages feed at once, remove the paper from the sheet feeder, fan the edges to separate the sheets, then reload it.

  • If the paper doesn't eject fully, you may have set the wrong paper size. Press the c:\users\home\appdata\local\temp\msohtmlclip1\01\clip_image001.gif Stop button, then open the scanner and remove the paper. Select the correct paper size when you reprint.

  • If it's wrinkled when it ejects, the paper may be damp or too thin. Load new paper.

  • Make sure you use new, smooth, high-quality paper, that is not curled, creased, old, or too thin. Make sure to load it printable side up.

  • Do not load paper with holes punched in it for insertion in a binder.

  • Make sure you load only up to the recommended number of sheets. If you're printing on both sides of the paper, try loading fewer sheets.

Paper type

Load up to
this many sheets

Plain paper

Approximately 120

Epson Bright White Paper
Epson Presentation Paper Matte


Epson Photo Paper Glossy
Epson Premium Photo Paper Glossy
Epson Ultra Premium Photo Paper Glossy
Epson Premium Photo Paper Semi-gloss


Epson Premium Presentation Paper Matte
Epson Premium Presentation Paper Matte Double-Sided
Epson Photo Quality Self-Adhesive Sheets
Epson Iron-On Cool Peel Transfer Paper


If the paper jams, do the following:

1. Gently pull any jammed paper out from the output tray or sheet feeder.

2. To eject the jammed paper, try turning the Epson Stylus NX400 off and then back on.

If that doesn't work and paper is stuck inside, turn off the Epson Stylus NX400. Open the scanner, remove the jammed paper and torn pieces, close the scanner, and turn the Epson Stylus NX400 back on.

Plain paper feeds no problem but photo glossy paper wont feed! (epson 830)


This looks to be a problem with the paper pickup roller. Hence use a little thin Photo paper or replace the Pickup roller and also the Paper feed toller (Long black roller )

When printing photos on glossy Kodak paper the error message " paper jam reload" appears.

Some printers are not able to or having difficulty feeding glossy photo papers at 230 gsm and above, try using photo papers below 230 gsm.

Glossy A4 paper will not feed. Is it too heavy?

Actually, if printer is new, printer can feed up to 350 grm. But if pick up rubber at paper feeder mechanics had distort/loose thickness, it can't. Try to use 210 gsm glossy paper. Or, if you wish to use 280 gsm, pull down paper while printer grab paper.

Hi, this printer is "clever" in that you don't adjust the thickness setting it does it itself.

It does this based on the paper type you set in the printer properties, see the table below for the different types of paper it will accept & the setting you need to use.

For this paper Select this paper type setting Plain paper, sheets Epson Premium Ink Jet Plain Paper Epson Bright White Ink Jet Paper plain papers Epson Ultra Glossy Photo Paper Epson Ultra Glossy Epson Premium Glossy Photo Paper Epson Premium Glossy Epson Premium Semigloss Photo Paper Epson Premium Semigloss Epson Glossy Photo Paper Epson Glossy Epson Matte Paper - Heavyweight Epson Double-Sided Matte Paper Epson Matte Epson Photo Quality Ink Jet Cards Epson Photo Quality Ink Jet Epson Photo Stickers Epson Photo Stickers Envelopes Envelope

Will not accept glossy paper why

The glossy paper is much harder to grab with the feed rollers, try one sheet at a time and nudge it in while it is starting to feed. It doesn't look like the printer is very old so I don't think your feed tires have any appreciable wear. Good luck, Dale

Epson RX520 dont print the full picture

It's a problem with the paper not feeding straight. The printer will make a pass & sense the width of the paper & print accordingly. If it feeds in crooked then it sees it as being narrow & only prints to that width. Happens more easily with heavy photo paper.

Apply a bit of pressure to the paper as it feeds & it's happy days.
