My Epson C1100 had a paper jam at E problem. Looking at advice here, it seemed the solenoid was the likely problem as it was not picking up paper. I bought a new solenoid and replaced it, but still same issue. Any ideas?

Just solved the same problem. It is a very slight misalignment of the two rollers behind door E. I closed door E holding the vertical bar below the handle and just 'jiggled' it slightly from side to side, and it latched closed. Paper jam fixed, yippee!!
Jam E normally cause by the paper path sensor came off during when you clear a paper jam.. the sensor is located at middle side , to fix it back you will need to remove the E cover..and remove the transport unit...4 screws.. but putting it back will need to have some technical know how as fitting it back wrongly will cause you unit not able to feed paper due to the plastic blocking the paper path. Will upload some instruction later...
There are two main causes of this error on C11's. Firstly does the paper get picked up and partly fed when you try to print?
If the answer is yes then it is likely that the sensor actuating arm on the transport unit has been unseated, a common occurence. To check for this, open the back cover and feel if the actuating arm springs back when pressed. It is located centrally about one third way up the black plastic transport unit. If it is missing/loose then you will need to remove the transport unit to reseat it.
If the paper does not get picked up at all then it is 99% likely to be a faulty solenoid which is also very common on this model series. This can be very complicated and will require a replacement solenoid to hand before you start.
Let me know which of the above it is and I will give a detailed description of what is required.
This is caused by the solenoid that is activated when picking up the paper.
The solenoid is activated and the device goes through the motions of picking up the paper. It fails to pick up the paper or fully feed it past the leading edge sensor resulting in a jam error.
You should replace the pick up solenoid assy and also the pick up roller and friction pads.
The MP E error relates to the registration assy on the rear of the machine. There are 22 possible causes of this error.
I suggest you get a service manual for the machine and work throught the easier checks one by one.
