Having had a similar problem, I can say that you almost certainly do have a paper jam in that the paper clear sensor is being prevented from dropping into a small recess under the paper path, by debris of some kind. You cannot see or access this sensor without dissembling the whole printer and lifting the mechanism clear of the plastic case. Once you know where all the fixing screws are, this can be done in a few minutes, but it is not a job that should be undertaken unless you have a fair degree of mechnical dexterity and are used to disconnecting very small plugs and ribbon assemblies. The secret to getting the printer apart is the removal of the control panel underneath which are more holding screws. This is done by lifting the rear of the panel with a small screw driver in the notch provided, and firmly pushing the panel to the rear of the printer. Once clear a small ribbon connector needs to be detached.

Epson xp430 paper jam, but I can't find any jam!


They don't tell lies :>) Even the smallest piece of paper over the sensor will record a jam. This often happens when you have a jam and you pull the paper and it tears a piece off. Open all the doors, remove the paper tray, remove all the toner or cartridges and look with a flashlight. Always pull paper jam paper in the direction it was going, undo tensioner clips if present and pull paper evenly and slowly as not to tear the paper. If you do, keep the paper and find the piece that fits the piece that is missing.

Having said that, see the link

Epson dfx9000 it gives me paper jam


Hi there,
My epson printer showed a paper jam light although no paper was visible.
I discovered my son had had a paper jammed and ripped the paper out and a tiny piece was jammed inside but was not visible easily.
***NO RESPONSIBILITY ACCEPTED FOR LOSS OR DAMAGE IF YOU USE THIS SOLUTION I USED TO FIX MY PRINTER*********
i cut an A4 sized square of cardboard from a cereal packet.
I inserted this instead of paper and attempted to use the feed paper button to eject the paper jam.
This did not initially work so as i kept pressing the paper feed button i forced the cardboard into the printer in the same direction that the paper feeds whilst printing.
The cardboard pushed the tiny piece of paper out.
Turn off the printer and then turn back on - you should find the printer now works.
I also found it helpful to clean the feed path and to try and keep dust from settling in the printer.
If it is in a dusty environment it helps to keep the printer covered when not in use - you can buy plastic covers for this or any large plastic will do but does not look as aesthetically pleasing.
Hope this has helped.

Torn paper- how can I disassemble epson workforce 610?


Before you do a complete teardown, use a flashlight to examine every possible point in the paper feed path where the paper is jammed. There may be an easier way to clear it. In some cases I have had to clear a paper jam bit by bit using tweezers.

Hello gemma almond,

Welcome, and thank you for using FixYa!

To answer your question: Your printer will need to be cleaned inside and checked for small shards of paper jammed within the paper feed path.
If you look inside of the printer, you will see small, rubber, feed tires (wheels) that pickup the paper. These tires also ensure that the paper feeds entirely through the printer. These tires can become dry and coated in clay off of the paper you use. Once they become coated, they slip on the paper.
Use a paper towel with Windex or Rubbing Alcohol to clean up these tires and an access ink you see inside of the printer.
This should fix your issue.

Have a great day!
