Question about Epson Stylus Color 740 InkJet Printer
Hi, Out of the blue, the paper will not track evenly thruogh the printing process on my Epson Stylus color 740. It pulls through correctly on the left side but does not pull through, then crunches up and feeds through crooked and crucnhed up on the right corner. I can find no obstruction inside the paper feed chamber. Not sure how to access the rollers to check. Paper jam has been cleared- problem continues.
Hi - googled and found a good Epson site with info on this - reproduced below - the part that worked for me was allowing a small bit of room between the paper on both sides and the paper guides (counterintuitive...) rather than flush up against them.
From the Epson instructions:
You can try using the Epson cleaning sheet (has a sticky side) to pick up any excess paper residue. It's available from the Epson Store.
Try loading heavier stock paper, such as 24 lb. paper, if you haven't done so already.
Make sure there is 1/16 to 1/32 inch space on each side of the paper in the paper tray.
Move the paper type selector back and forth 5 times, to make sure it is not stuck.
Feed the tray with a minimum of 20 sheets of paper and try to see if it loads paper through.
The paper thickness lever has two settings, one for plain paper, (thin paper 20# to 24#) and one for envelopes and thick paper.
It should be on the 0 setting for thin paper and on the + setting for thick paper and envelopes.
The paper adjustment lever may be adjusted in between the two settings to accommodate paper that is not standard or that the operating/environmental conditions have changed.
Make sure the paper is loaded far enough into the printer to ensure good contact between the paper and the paper feed mechanism.

Make sure the blue slide device on the left side of the paper holder is tight against the paper. If not, the paper will feed corrked.
