There is something stuck in the rollers. Maybe small stickly paper or clip. You might be lucky enough to see the front feeds and remove. If it the back ones you will need to remove the roller platen to get access. If nothing stuck make sure upon placing the roller back that the roller tray is loaceted each side on its pivits.

Cannot type even


Not enough information, really. We don't know the model or just exactly what you mean by not typing even. If you mean the lines aren't straight, then it could mean the typeface are not set evenly (which is something you cannot correct), or it could mean the platen is not sitting in the ratchet detent upon return and then slide into place while typing (check by hand that the platen in fully set in the detent by gently trying to move it clockwise or counterclockwise). Also make sure the paper release lever is not pulled. Hope this gives you a start anyway.

While typing there was a metalic "clunk. The paper would no longer remain around the bar.


There is a strong spring tha holds the lower rolls on the paper it may have broken but more likely the plastic point where it hooks broke off.

What type of paper are you using? It's common on cheap canvas or fabrics. Make sure the beginning of the roll about 10 inches must be straight in right side (blue line side). The paper slips upward freely and straight before lowering blue lever. Also this problem appears when your room is dry (low moisture) then PP sticker and some photo paper will curl. This checking feature is very useful for printing on whole roll in a single feed.

Printer header path type 1, 2, and 4 prolem request for feeding back


If the media does not feed into the in-feed slot in the media cabinet, try the following:
  • Make sure both roller levers are lowered to open the in-feed slot.
  • Trim the leading edge of the paper so it does not get caught in the slot.
  • Insert the media evenly to avoid angles. Do not insert one corner and then the other.
    NOTE: A beep means that the printer has detected the media in the in-feed slot. The printer will only beep once in a load cycle, if media is removed and reloaded the printer may not beep again if the load process is not re-started through the front panel.
Media does not advance If the media does not advance far enough into the in-feed channel in the media cabinet, the paper is slipping and the rollers do not grip the media. Try the following:
  • The pre-tension might be applied incorrectly. Always apply pre-tension by turning the star screw on the left side of the spindle. Never apply tension by turning the media roll or the spindle disks.
  • Clean the rollers using the cleaning procedure.
  • If the media being used is heavy coated, try changing the media.
Media jam in the in-feed channel If there is a media jam in the in-feed channel, try the following:
  • Turn the multi-roll feeder off using the power isolator switch on the connector panel at the back.
  • Open the media cabinet doors and lower the roller lever on both sides.
  • Turn the spindle to pull the media out of the in-feed channel and to collect it back on to the roll.
  • If the media is blocked, place the spindle in the park position for better access to the in-feed channel, and then pull the media edges in a downwards direction on both sides.
  • If the media cannot be reached because the roll has finished and it has not been ejected from the front of the printer, open the rear cover and try to remove the media from the motion control assembly.
    NOTE: Do not insert media with crumpled or damaged edges, trim the media first.
  • Make sure the leading edge is trimmed straight.
  • Make sure there is even tension across the width of the media.
  • Make sure media is aligned (the same amount of media is fed across the width).
  • Apply pre-tension the media.
When the printer is going to be unattended for a long period of time, it is a good idea to load and unload each roll using the LOAD/UNLOAD commands from the front panel (if the media loading procedure was not completed when prompted by the printer). This will ensure that each roll of media loaded is correctly aligned and that the printer is capable of loading/unloading each roll when requested by the print jobs in the queue.
Media misaligned When a "Misaligned?? message is displayed, the printer unloads the media. Press ENTER to continue and the printer will display the "Ready for paper?? status message. Do the following:
  • Check for even tension across the width of the media. If there is less tension on one side than the other, then the media is not straight in the in-feed slot.
  • There is a hole on the right side of the in-feed slot. Make sure the edge of the media is aligned with the left side of this hole.
  • Lower the roller levers on both sides and adjust the media so that tension is even across the whole width. Turn the spindle disk quickly two or three times away from you and then two or three times in the opposite direction. This will help to create an even tension.
  • Lift the roller levers on both sides and try to load the media again.
If this does not solve the problem, remove the media from the in-feed slot and repeat the loading procedure. Make sure the roll is against the right hand spindle disk (fully inside the roll core), and do the same for the left hand spindle disk. The printer verifies correct alignment using the blue line on the right hand side of the printing area as a reference. Media does not unload correctly If the media does not fully unload from the in-feed channel in the media cabinet, check the following:
  • Maybe there is not enough pre-tension. Always apply pre-tension by turning the star screw on the left side of the spindle three or four times (or more if the spindle is on a low retainer bracket). Never apply tension by turning the media roll or the spindle disks.
  • The spring applying pressure on the retainer bracket is loose and the spindle is slipping in the retainer bracket. Turn the multi-roll feeder off and turn the retainer bracket screw one turn in a clockwise direction.
Partial or blank prints If the print is partial or blank, check the following:
  • Check the multi-roll configuration in the printer driver: Check that the Has Multi-Roll Feeder check box is selected.
  • Check default roll configuration: Check if a roll is installed for the roll configured as default. If a roll is not selected from the printer driver, the printer will try to print to the default roll, and if no identical roll is available, it will not print the job.
  • Check Productivity mode settings: If the mode is set to normal and the roll has finished, the job cannot be printed.
  • Check cable connection: Check that the printer and any network cables are securely connected to the printer. Make sure the parallel cable is connected between the multi-roll feeder and the printer and ensure that it is also firmly connected between the computer and the multi-roll feeder.
  • Check media configuration: Make sure the media rolls are configured correctly.
  • Check document file: When printing files that are generated with versions of printer drivers for printers without multi-roll feeders, the header section of some file formats already contains information on the media. In these files, roll or sheet information corresponds to roll 1 in the multi-roll feeder. These files will print to the Default Roll. HP advises that the top roll (roll 1) is used as the default.

I have a paper jam in my epsn c84.


Hi

Try one or more of these solutions:
  • Secure the roll paper you are not using with the roll paper belt when two roll paper spindles are installed. See Using the roll paper belt.
  • Before loading paper and guiding it through the paper insertion slot, make sure the roll paper is wound up firmly. Position the bottom edge of the paper straightly and in line with the rows of punch holes on the printer.
  • Make sure the paper is not folded or wrinkled.
  • Make sure printing occurs within the operational temperature range.
  • Make sure the paper is not damp.
  • Make sure the paper is not too thick or too thin. See Paper.
  • Make sure no foreign objects are inside the printer.
  • For Windows, check the Media Type setting in the Main Menu. Make sure it is correct for the paper you are using.
For Macintosh, check the Media Type setting in the Print dialog box. Make sure it is correct for the paper you are using.
  • Make sure that the platen gap setting matches your paper. You can change the platen gap setting in the Printer Setting menu of the SelecType mode. See SelecType Settings.
  • For paper other than EPSON's, check the paper type selected in the Paper Configuration menu of the SelecType mode. See Setting the paper thickness.

Reload Paper constantly shows up


This printer is very finicky about paper loading. I see this error most commonly when using auto-cut roll paper. If the paper edge is not cut perfectly straight, and it is not inserted into the printer perfectly strait, it will give you an error. When it does this, you can simply load the paper and press "cut" instead of "pause" when it says "press pause" and it will cut the paper straight. You can also set it to "Roll Paper Manual Cut" and load the paper, then set it back to "Roll Paper Auto Cut."

Paper feeds as if normal but no printing appears on paper


If it is now printing blank and was working before the paper roll change then you need to flip the roll over and print on the other side of the paper. This is assuming you have the correct thermal paper roll.

I have the canon w8400 and when i try to print it comes up error E0200D Size undetected. Pleas explain i have the same problem! it says ERROR EO2OOD. WTF?


Could be that the button for Sheet / Roll has been pressed. This is a popular error caused by the machine expecting a sheet when you are loading a roll. Make sure the light is located on the roll option rather than the sheet.

If this is the problem, you must first remove all media, then lower the covers and lower the media release lever before the printer will allow you to change between roll & sheet.
