Question about Epson Office Equipment & Supplies

Open Question

My Epson DX8450 keeps chewing up my papers and won't complete printing a single sheet. I have tried to feed the paper properly until I realised that the spongy bit unerneath where the ink catridges run has been torn . I have been scouring the internet for about 2 hours now trying to see if I can get a spare part to repalce the torn one. Can you please help me ?

That is usually caused by the paper feed rollers being cover with paper dust. Take a clean cotton pad and alcohol and clean the rollers :turninig each roller as you clean it. if it has a rear dor, open it to get better access to the rollers.

1. Unplug the power and USB cables from the printer. I pried open my C42UX printer, careful not to break anything. I use a flat blade screwdriver to pry it apart; there are two-three tabs at the back and two at the front. Gently push them in, and then using a bit of force pry apart the cover.
2. Next I removed the two (2) waste ink pads. They are located at the back on the left hand side. I used the flat blade screwdriver to lift up the ink pads (they were soaked). Please use rubber gloves as it gets very messy.
3. Next I took the pads to the kitchen skin and washed them with just plain hot water until they were white again. I just let the hot water run on them (the pads are about three inches long).
4. Once washed I dried them using a hair drier. (you could place it the sun for a few hours or on top of your heater or maybe in a heated oven; (make sure you do not set it on fire with too much heat).
5. Once dried I placed the pads back in the ink waste bin at the back of the printer.
6. I closed the printer cover and put back all the pieces and plugged in the USB & power cable and turned it on. (Yes the lights are still flashing).
7. Go to this link and download this software: http://inkjetprinterhelp.us/epsonSSC.html
8. Install the software and run it.
9. Select your printer and model number ( It only says C42 there is no UX, choose it anyway).It will ask if you replaced with new pads; say “YES”. Then close the window.
10. Now right click on the SSC service utility, it looks like a printer icon near your clock in the task bar.
11. Then click on reset counters. You can do all other stuff with this utility too.
12. Turn off the printer power and then turn it on again. If necessary un-plug the power cord from the back of the printer, wait 20 seconds. Plug it back in.
13. THERE YOU GO! IT WORKS AGAIN.
14. By the way I use generic ink and I fill my own cartridges. I use ink from www.atlanticinkjet.com. Great stuff.

try this and let me know it worked or not ...

On the machines control panel set to sheet fed (pressing the left button will change from Sheet, roll and roll with cut). In the print settings select your paper profile. On the page setup choose sheet. In the pull down menu you should only have basic paper sizes, no custom size. choose 20x30 and try again.

let me know if this helps

Epson Stylus CX4800 prints blank pages


Alex_Garton:

I'm not familiar with the Epson Stylus printers, but I'm going to hazard a guess. If the paper does not move at all, the paper pickup feed mechanism is at fault. One of two methods is used to pick up the sheet. Either the front lower portion of the tray is lifted up to force the top sheet into the feed roller, or the feed roller is connected to a drop-swivel to drop the feed roller onto the top sheet of paper. You'll need to look carefully at the feed mechanism to determine if a gear or clutch is failing. If the paper moves into the machine about 1/2 inch and then stops, either the first paper feed roller past the pickup roller may be at fault. Also check to see if the paper sensor between the paper pickup roller and the first feed roller is working properly.

The paper isnt going through


If the paper feed rollers are not clean, they may slip and cause paper feeding problems.
The problem may be alleviated by performing paper feed roller cleaning.

1. Open the Printers folder.
- For Windows XP Home Edition Click/Select "Start," "Control Panel," "Printers and Other Hardware," and "Printers and Faxes."
- For Windows XP Professional Edition Click "Start" and "Printers and Faxes."
- For Windows 2000/Me/98 Click/Select "Start," and "Settings," then "Printers."
2. Right-click the icon of the printer for paper feed roller cleaning, and select Properties from the displayed list.
3. Click the Maintenance tab and click Roller Cleaning. 4. Remove all sheets of paper from the auto sheet feeder, and click OK. 5. Confirm the message to be displayed, and click OK.
Do not try other operations until printer's operation completes.
6. When the printer's operation is completed, follow the confirmation message to load three new sheets of A4 or letter-sized plain paper in the auto sheet feeder
7. Click OK.
8. Confirm the message to be displayed, and click OK.
Do not try other operations until all the three sheets are ejected.
Memo: The printer prints nothing on those sheets.
9. When all the three sheets of the paper are ejected, paper feed roller cleaning is completed.
10. Click OK.
Performing Roller Cleaning is completed.

Epson stylus C43UX. my printer keeps saying paper jam and paper not loaded correctly and just spills out the paper i load. the paper is loaded perfectly but it just wont print! the stupid red light just...


The printer reports a paper jam because the paper feed system cannot feed paper.

Look down into the place where the paper goes (the "automatic sheet feeder" or ASF) and you should see a fat wheel with a grey ribbed rubber facing. Place a single sheet of paper in the ASF and do a test print (right click the printer icon and select properties). Watch to see what happens in the ASF. The plastic panel behind the sheet of paper should move forward to push the sheet against the rotating rubber wheel, which should then feed the paper into the print position. This is presumably not happening! Can you what does happen?

If the expected movements are not happening, you need to remove the printer top cover to see what the problem is and resolve it - perhaps the ASF has come loose or something. This is easy if you know how to do it - otherwise it's likely to cause you to take a large hammer to the task! If you need help on this, please report back with a new post.

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.

Paper will not load into my Epson PHOTO R340 printer.


May be the problem is at paper sensor, that dirty. The sensor is at bottom of head casing. When paper feeding, the sensor not get the light back, so the printer "think" that no paper. Try to clean paper sensor.

My Epson C 84 had something jammed into the paper feed and once the item (a blind pull from the window) was dislodged it will not fee paper or print. any words of advice?


It seems likely that the feed mechanism has been dislodged or broken in some way.

Look down into the place where the paper goes (the "automatic sheet feeder" or ASF) and you should see a fat wheel with a grey ribbed rubber facing. Place a single sheet of paper in the ASF and do a test print (right click the printer icon and select properties). Watch to see what happens in the ASF. The plastic panel behind the sheet of paper should move forward to push the sheet against the rotating rubber wheel, which should then feed the paper into the print position. If this is not happening you will need to dismantle the printer to investigate further.

If you wish to do this, post a new comment to this effect and I will provide further help.
