Make sure that you are setting the proper paper type before printing any paper other than "plain" by going into the printer's "properties/preferences". If it's thick paper, choose "thick" or "heavy" or "cardstock" in the drop-down arrow.

Unless, of course, your printer doesn't accept cardstock at all, then you're out of luck.

Hope this helps. :)

Paper jam at exit


Besides setting it for card stock both in its internal menu and the pc's menu, are you setting it for legal size paper? The timing will be thrown off if that step is missed. It will stop pulling the paper because it is looking for 8.5 x 11" paper. I would test with less expensive card stock to also make sure a shard of the decal paper did not get left in the paper path. The card stock should help dislodge any debris in the paper path.

Regular paper keeps jamming, but card stock will print fine


Hello,

The card stock prints ok but not regular paper because your pickup roller and separation pad are worn down and need to be replaced. The card stock still picks up because it is much thicker than the paper so the roller can grab it better. You need to get a roller kit part # RK-1320. We carry them at: http://www.ccl-la.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=24_41_42&products_id=71 if you need to order the kit. We also offer full tech support after the sale.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Epson RX500, Paper Jam - printing couldn't start


Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button, applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this, is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time. Worth a try. I have fixed a number of printers this way saving costly repairs. Bud

Hi,
I m not sure what the specification of the paper type you are using however if you are using card stock than you should use manual feed Tray and in the printer driver properties you should select paper type as Card-Stock to make sure there is no print quality issue.

Paper jam, so small, can't even see paper


first off, unless you know that the paper is there, it's a possibility your machine is just saying or acting as if there is a jam when actually there is something giving a false reading or a failed part rendering it unable to print. Otherwise, if you happen to know where there paper is jammed at, attempt forcing a heavier stock paper through. say the jam is between two rollers attempt pushing a cardstock or index card thickness of stock through the rollers to attempt pushing the paper backward which might either remove the jam and make it removeable elsewhere, or make it so the machine can try to feed the paper through again this time allowing you to reach it.

I am trying to print double-sided copy on card stock


HI there sounds like there is a blockage in the duplex area that is not holding any sensors down. Check the duplex area for torn paper, failing this it maybe a sensor problem which will then need a engineer.

Hope this helps
Thanks J

Paper Jam with no Jam


You may have overloaded your paper feeder with heavy card stock and caused a very tiny jam that you have not found yet so that it will act oddly as it is. Look right up inside unit with a torch and down back where the paper goes in.Try printing on plain a4 agian, place a small stack in feeder, reset paper guides too. Also could be your paper sensor, fixable under warranty.
