Epson 1290 paper feed problem

We have an epson 1290 printer and the paper feed seems to be not working automatically. you can push the paper to force it through. It seems to be a problem with the springs. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Wow..springs that are weakened...unfortunately, that's one key weakness in these sort of printers. When I do a repair, if the springs are shot(not unlike a car, eh?), it's time to replace em. Not much can be done to restore the tensile strength of something like that.

Got Backup?

Epson dfx9000 it gives me paper jam


Hi there,
My epson printer showed a paper jam light although no paper was visible.
I discovered my son had had a paper jammed and ripped the paper out and a tiny piece was jammed inside but was not visible easily.
***NO RESPONSIBILITY ACCEPTED FOR LOSS OR DAMAGE IF YOU USE THIS SOLUTION I USED TO FIX MY PRINTER*********
i cut an A4 sized square of cardboard from a cereal packet.
I inserted this instead of paper and attempted to use the feed paper button to eject the paper jam.
This did not initially work so as i kept pressing the paper feed button i forced the cardboard into the printer in the same direction that the paper feeds whilst printing.
The cardboard pushed the tiny piece of paper out.
Turn off the printer and then turn back on - you should find the printer now works.
I also found it helpful to clean the feed path and to try and keep dust from settling in the printer.
If it is in a dusty environment it helps to keep the printer covered when not in use - you can buy plastic covers for this or any large plastic will do but does not look as aesthetically pleasing.
Hope this has helped.

Epson 810 automatic feeder won't feed


do you let the paper get pulled by it'self? Maybe try to push it and maybe it will grab it better to pull through...if not try a shop to fix or buy new one.

My 1290 fails to feed the paper. It seems that most of the time the paper is picked up at one edge so the paper crumples


When you experience damage to the paper when feeding it means that it is hitting something in it's path. Open the printer and check the path of the paper for any foreign objects like torn paper, staples,and the like. And if you have printed any labels, part of the label maybe caught on one of the rollers.

Epson stylus c68 paper jam


Hi Guest.

Turn your printer off and load a single sheet of paper. Move the rubber wheel to anywhere. Turn the printer on and watch what happens in the paper feed slot (in official Epson parlance this is the "automatic sheet feeder" or ASF). You should see the rubber wheel etc set into the correct start postion. Then press the paper feed button and watch again. The plastic "wall" behind the piece of paper should move forward, pushing the sheet into the rotating rubber wheel. This should feed the paper into the "ready to print position". If this doesn't happen, it means something has come adrift inside the paper feed system. To investigate this further requires the printer to be dismantled. Either take it to a technician, or if you want to have a go at doing this yourself, post a new comment to this effect and I will help you do this.

Lines on prints


Hi kids! I decided to have another go at sorting out my 'lines' problem and have sorted it. See if this might work for you: I had previously done the head cleaning via the printer itself - holding the central ink/paper black button for 3 secs. This time I went to the Epson 1290 window on my Mac and clicked on the utility box. Though the Nozzle check print came out fine I went ahead and did the head cleaning in this box. The next print came out almost perfect so I ran the Head cleaning again and it printed a perfect print. Hope this might work for you. Keep on trying! All the best. Trant
