Question about Epson Artisan 800 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Open Question

I have an Epson Artisan 800 ADF problem. After making sure there no paper jams, I insert the sheets to be copied into the ADF and then try the scan button. The ADF copier starts up and then I hear the cog wheels turning (making a rachet or grinding sound) and yet the sheets are not fed into the document feeder. It use to work, but now it doesn't even grab the sheets. How can I correct this problem? Is there a way to fix this problem? Hector-

SOURCE: trying to scan to email on Epson Artisan 800

If you are scanning wirelessly, you have to launch the epson scan software from your computer and scan to e-mail from there. You can scan using either professional or home mode.
Please take note that scanning from the printer only supports direct connection, which means you have to plug in the printer to your computer via a usb cable.
If you cannot launch epson scan, please let me know. And include the operating system that you are using too.

SOURCE: My HP LaserJet 3050 will not grab and feed paper

Open the top as if you were going to change ink cartridges. Find all rollers yuou can and wipe them with a t-shirt type material dry. Do not use any liquids unless you can get some rubbing alcohol. Turn the wheels and claen them as best as is posible. Open the paper jam door and do the same to all rollers in site. Any way you can get to the rollers, use it. This should solve your problem. Also try fanning your paper before loading it. Thanks, Dana

SOURCE: epson artisan 800 wont print to a transparency

OK so i tricked my 810 into printing on a transparency. NOT that I recommend doing this ... but .... I took four pieces of clear tape and taped the top (where it goes into the printer) and on each side about three inches from the top.

Then I put it in the tray with the transparency on the bottom of the paper -- since it brings it up thru the printer and flips it over, it prints right onto the transparency !!!

It didn't like it the first time, since I just folded over the tape on the end that gets sucked into the printer first. Hence the added stabilizers on each side.

SOURCE: I have a epson artisan 800 I'm tring to fax from

I took apart my artison 800 with 'paper jam' error and grinding noise. Sadly enough, it is the plastic gear attached to the stepper motor which is slipping and making the grinding noise. I tried to glue it and it worked once or twice and failed again. It is a design flaw and Epson should repair this for free if they are honest about this problem. Ir is not a user-caused problem.

ADF wont feed the paper through the printer


You can load up to 30 sheets of plain paper in the Artisan 800 ADF. If the ADF doesn't feed the paper, check the following.

1. Make sure that you are loading plain paper only without a holes. 3-hole punched paper is not supported by this printer.

2. Load paper not exceed 30 sheets.

3. Open the ADF and check for any jammed paper or foreign object that is blocking the paper feeding path.

4. Check if the BIG GREEN ADF indicator is lit when you load paper in the ADF.

If the issue persists, your printer will require service. You can contact the Epson for warranty if your printer still under warranty. If your warranty expires, look for an a service center that can repair your printer.

Cannot clear paper jam


Paper Jams in the Automatic Document Feeder
If you're loading legal-size paper, insert only 10 sheets at a time to prevent paper feeding problems.
If paper jams inside the ADF, clear the jam and reload the paper as follows:
1.
Open the ADF cover and remove any jammed paper.

Caution:
Do not try to remove the paper without opening the ADF cover first, or you could damage the mechanism.
2.
Press OK, then select Yes and press OK to clear any messages on the display screen.
3.
Reload the paper. Make sure the corners of the paper are not bent, folded, or curled up.

Cant send nor receive faxes


dear sir,kindly follow the below instructions
Instructions
  1. Ensure that all cables are securely connected. First, make sure that the printer cable connecting your computer to your printer is connected securely. Then, make sure that the power cord is inserted into a wall outlet. Try your print job again after you have ensured that all cables are properly connected.

  2. Clear a paper jam if your printer is not responding or you are receiving a "Paper Jam" error message on your printer. To clear a jam, first open the rear output door by pushing down on the two levers on each side of the door. Opening the rear door simply makes it easier to clear a jam. Open the top cover on the front of the printer by pressing the release button on the right side of the printer. Locate the paper jam and use two hands to gently remove the paper jam. Try your print, scan, fax or copy job again.

  3. Clear stored or saved faxes if you are having trouble sending or receiving faxes. Old faxes may be stuck in the fax queue, which may be causing the printer to not respond. To remove stored faxes, press the "Menu" button on the printer and select "Fax Functions." Then select "Clear Saved Faxes." Wait for the queue to clear and try your fax job again.

  4. Remove paper from the automatic document feeder (ADF) input tray if your scan job is coming out crooked. The ADF input tray can only hold up to 50 sheets at a time. If there are more than 50 sheets in the input tray, the output may appear skewed. Try your scan job again after removing the paper.

  5. Adjust your computer monitor's display settings if your scanned image is not an accurate representation of the original image. This can be done in the "Control Panel" in Windows. Set the settings to the highest possible resolution and try your scan job again.

  6. Perform a power cycle on your printer if the previous steps were unsuccessful. To do this, turn off your printer, then unplug it from the wall. Wait a few minutes and plug the printer back in. Try your print, scan, fax or copy job again.


take care..thank you

My Artisan 810 ADF gets jam error. There is no paper there. The motor just whirls and then gives ADF jam error. My 810 is near new, less than 300 sheets printed, less than 100 scanned using...


Just fixed my problem today. It was the ADF assembly motor. The spur gear had cracked open where it can no longer grip tightly to the center rod when the motor spins. I bought a new motor assembly from CompassMicro for the total amount of $23 and my printer is back in running order like normal again. Beats taking it to a repair center and get ripped!

The ADF jams every time on the first sheet. seems like it is just not feeding the document all the way through. what can be done?


Try opening up the LEFT side of the ADF. Takes a little finger muscle to do this. Clean the rollers with a clean cloth, and check to see that there is nothing lodged in the mechanism (staples, loose paper bits, mother-in-laws, etc). Also, there is a limit to how many sheets the ADF can take at once - I haven't maxed mine out, so I don't know how many sheets is the maximum allowed.

Hope this helps

Epson Artisan 800 ADF jams ever time. THere is no paper in it and I've unplugged it and restarted it multiple time. Havn't had it that long. 1 year or maybe a bit more.


There are two gears that are made of plastic that have hard rubber toothed sprockets pressed on them. These sprockets split and allow the drive motor to slip. Epson will only sell the motor assembly and not just the gear. I used a dot of supperglue to repair the sprockets and all works fine now.
