Question about Epson Stylus CX7800 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

My Epson CX7800's Printer is broken.

The Epson CX7800 Printer that I own has a problem with its paper feed. Thereis nothing noticable jammed in it, but yet the paper still gets pulled to the right side so that it starts to jam. Sometimes it is not so bad, but other times we have to cut the paper to get it out. What could be wrong?

Thank-you...

    paper shifts to the right and then jams.

    Same here. After changing an ink cartridge the paper started pulling too far or fast right causing the jam. I can eventually get the paper to feed through, but it is crooked and the printer will not print on it at that point. My question is: Anyone know an estimated cost to repair the feeder if it is a hardware issue? At $70/hr bench rate, that would overshoot the cost to just buy a new printer soon if the part isn't cheap.

    My paper also pulls to the right and doesn't print the whole page. I wonder if part of the plastic feeder guard or edge guide is broken.

Chances are you are having an issue with the paper sensor mechanisms, check if there are obstruction or any foreign object that are actually preventing the paper to go through all the way to the right hand side of the printer. if there is non that is already a hardware issue:

Keeps jaming on the right every time


Follow this step to clear the jam

press the diamond shape button start button to eject the jammed paper. If the jammed paper is not ejected, go to the next step.
if the paper is stuck near the sheet feeder or output tray, gently pull it out.
If the paper is stuck inside Epson Stylus CX7800, press the power on button to turn it off. Open the scanner and remove any pepr inside including any torn pieces. Do not pu;; it backward beacuse this can damage the sheet feeder. Close the scanner, then turn the epson stylus CX78oo back on.

THE EPSON STYLUS CX7800 KEEPS SAYING THERE IS A PAPER JAM, BUT IT'S NOT. IT TRIES TO PULL THE PAPER THROUGH, THEN STOPS. IT DOES NOT ENTER FAR ENOUGH TO EVEN BE JAMMED. IT APPEARS THAT IT IS TRYING TO PULL...


The sensor lever was stuck and still blocking the sensor and that is the reason why it always say paper jam.You have to dismantle your printer if you do,you can find and trace the sensor where the paper is being inserted,most probably it is near the pick up roller (it is the one that gets the paper).

Paper jammed-cleared by pulling paper up& backwards Got a "E-90


Pulling paper out of a printer "backwards" will usually break a gear that is made to feed the paper in one direction.

Epson should be able to sell you the new gear and also when you order it - ask for the installation information or Service Manual to cover the replacement of the broken gear!! It helps a lot in putting the new gear in.

Epson CX7800 3 in one printer feeds mulltiple sheets.


This is usually caused by a dirty or dented feed roller.

The feed roller is the black wheel that has s flat side to it above the paper tray. Try using a Q-tip and some rubbing alcohol to clean it. Then give it another whirl.

As with the ink on the paper. This is usually caused by leaky printheads. Epson printers are notorious for having the printheads die on them, but usually from the ink drying out. Check and see if the bottom of the printhead can be reached and cleaned by Q-tip or cotton swab. Give it a good cleaning using rubbing alcohol. Don't go over board as the alcohol will dilute the ink.

Epson cx7800 error e-04


make sure the ink cover was down tight. Shut down the printer open it up and resecure the ink cover. That has fixed this error in many a case.

Paper Doesn't Feed Properly


Only one roller is working properly. I have had this problem before. It could be because the rollers are worn out or not attached properly.

Epson CX7800 paper jam Error e04


There is paper jammed in the machine or something is blocking the sensor for the paper path.

Remove the obstruction (try a vacuum cleaner nozzle down the feed path) and the machine should be right again

Paper won't feed


My CX4800 developed the same problem. It was an excellent machine until then. I tried everything I could think of, and finally decided it must be the rather large feed in rollers at the right of the paper bin (one below and one above the paper) that had worn too smooth to pull the paper in. It works fine if I will give the sheet a "push" when it starts to go down - but who has time to stand there and push each piece in! It would really be nice if Epson would provide us with inexpensive replacement rollers and instructions for installing them. Guess they had rather we just buy a new printer - which I did, a CX7800, only to find that it will not take the heavy weight photo paper. :-(

Sorry I couldn't help more.

My epson cs7800


I had the same problem and found a small spring was loose and interfering with the paper. The Spring was on the right side as you look at the printer, near the bottom of the paper feeder. I took it out and it works fine, for now.
