The printer will attempt to pull in a sheet of paper out of the tray. If none is pulled, this is noted because a microswitch is not closed by the paper sheet as it goes by. This is the cause of the message. Check to be sure that the rubber roller that grips the paper initially is clean. I'll leave further comments to Benimur our local printer expert.

Paper jam/ printing problem

I have this printer and when this did it to me like its doing to you the FEEDER had to be replaced. Now you might want to see if all the rollers are rolling and nothing is in the paper path. Also check you paper weight and size and adjust accordenly. A new feeder is like $27 bucks and you would have to go 3rd party to get it. I got mine from a USED lexmark someone was saling off ebay for my fix.

Bought used BJC-85 - feeds paper - won't print with new cartridge. Must have been dry too long. Where do I get a print head for it? Or a cleaning kit? I need it right away for a trip.

No need to change the print head. Just carry out all the maintenance tasks with the new cartridge. Make sure that you remove the thin plastic film from the ink pad. All you have to do is to click on printer/faxes in control. Click on properties in the drop down menu. Click on the maintenance and carry out each task i.e. print head cleaning, alignment, nozzles cleaning etc.

Epson Stylus C66 inkjet Printer does not print !

Have you tried a cleaning cycle? If not, try one. Now run a nozzle check using the status monitor (right click the little printer icon in the bottom right corner of the screen and select nozzle check). Is there any sign of ink on the paper. Try up to three cleaning cycles. If ink is now flowing, but not yet perfectly, don't carry out any more cleaning cycles. Just leave the printer for 24 hours (to allow any air in the print head to disperse). Then repeat the cleaning cycle/wait process. It may take a while to restore a perfect nozzle check print. If these actions produce no positive results, report back.

Actionguy describes a solution where you: hit menu then # to get into service mode, scrolled to CLEAR, hit set, scroll to ALL and hit set again
You can also clear the printer's memory of the task that's causing the problem by pressing on the 'eye' button that gives the list of print/copy/fax tasks. press OK to select what kind of task you have, then choose your task to delete it. Finally press OK and Yes (minus) to clear it. Then, you can unplug the printer briefly to clear the error and it will start without the bad job and the error message.
