    do not think so - the printer is only 14 months old and gets very, very little use - paddles do NOT show any sign of wear - printing just stopped suddenly

There is a optocoupler that detect the presence of paper by IR sensor. So if there is dirt on it , it ispossible to have this message on to the display.
remove off paper and do a good cleaning, the sensor is fixed just near the outlet of the paper to indicate when the last bit crosses over. Clean the tiny sensor holes and check.
If not it is possible that the sensor is faulty and must be replaced. You can open board to check the signal to see if the detection is showing a reading, but do this only if you are familiar to open up the mother board.

The feeder paddle is worn. It has rubber flaps to move (advance) the paper. Replacements maybe still around through hp.com

My Konica Minolta bizhub C250 seems prints about every 10th page crinkled and crooked. I can hear it going through the machine and crushing a crease in the paper as it prints. The printed also seems to...


The paper may not be feeding straight out of the paper tray due to poor stacking of the paper in the paper cassette. try another paper tray or check the paper in the paper tray for folded over papers usually near the bottom. Also try feeding paper from the hand feed tray on the left side. This uses a different paper path.

My printer is saying 'no paper feed' when there is clearly paper. The printer is not gripping the paper so it could print.


THe first thing to do would be to clean the pick up roller/s. If you can not reach them by hand, use a sheet of fine sand paper. put the sand paper in the paper tray so the gritty side will contact the feed roller. Then hold the paper in place while exicuting a test print. You wil get a jam, or papaer empty indicator. now do it again, and then one more time. Now remove the sand paper and use a damp thin cloth. make sure this is secured and will not be pulled into the machine. Now one more time run a test page. Now you should be good to go. If this did not solve the feed problem your feed rollers need to be replaced, or you have a paper present sensor problem. This could take some disassembly so let's try the easy stuff first.

Paper won't feed up to print


Try using Windex and a lint free cloth(not paper) on the feed rollers. The rollers may be glased due to age or use. If that does not work, call a tech.

Paper Jamming when trying to copy or print


please check after you load paper on the paper tray and push it into the machine, should hear a click sound, if you don't hear that sound, that means you need to buy a new printer and that's no way to fix.
If you are able to hear a click, then please try to clean up your printer and check all paper loading rolls. if so, please replace it.

Epson Photo RX600 error messages


Hi.
Check for a paper jam inside the paper feeder... There's something blocking the path that is why the 3-beep is activated. Also put lubricant to the head's round-bar, gears and levers.

Goodluck... Fixya me...
