I've had exactly the same problem. There was no bits of paper or specks of dust, fluff, etc. Switched on and off to no avail. Eventually I gave it a good old fashioned whack on the sides and switched it off and on again. It worked! The machine is 5 years old and now working beautifully. I don't want to encourage this practice – obviously you don't want to break anything inside so do it carefully, and only after checking all other possibilities.

Paper not feeding for epson nx400


Check the following:


  • If paper doesn't feed, remove it from the sheet feeder. Reload it against the right side, behind the tab, then press in the tab on the edge guide and slide it against the paper. Make sure the paper is not above the arrow mark inside the edge guide.

  • If multiple pages feed at once, remove the paper from the sheet feeder, fan the edges to separate the sheets, then reload it.

  • If the paper doesn't eject fully, you may have set the wrong paper size. Press the c:\users\home\appdata\local\temp\msohtmlclip1\01\clip_image001.gif Stop button, then open the scanner and remove the paper. Select the correct paper size when you reprint.

  • If it's wrinkled when it ejects, the paper may be damp or too thin. Load new paper.

  • Make sure you use new, smooth, high-quality paper, that is not curled, creased, old, or too thin. Make sure to load it printable side up.

  • Do not load paper with holes punched in it for insertion in a binder.

  • Make sure you load only up to the recommended number of sheets. If you're printing on both sides of the paper, try loading fewer sheets.

If the paper jams, do the following:

1. Gently pull any jammed paper out from the output tray or sheet feeder.

2. To eject the jammed paper, try turning the Epson Stylus NX400 off and then back on.

If that doesn't work and paper is stuck inside, turn off the Epson Stylus NX400. Open the scanner, remove the jammed paper and torn pieces, close the scanner, and turn the Epson Stylus NX400 back on.

The Paper Jams

Press the font29.gif paper button to eject the jammed paper. If the error does not clear, turn the printer off, open the printer cover and the CD/DVD guide. Remove all of the paper inside, including any torn pieces, then close the CD/DVD guide. Reload the paper, then press the font29.gif paper button to resume printing.
r_note.gif Note: r_space.gif If you cannot remove a foreign object easily by yourself, do not use force and do not disassemble the printer. Call Epson for assistance.
If your paper jams frequently, check the following:
  • The paper is smooth, not curled or wrinkled.
  • The paper is of high quality.
  • The printable side of the paper is face up in the sheet feeder.
  • The paper stack was fanned before loading.
  • The paper is not loaded above the triangular load-limit mark on the left edge guide.
  • The paper stack fits under the tabs inside the edge guides.
  • The number of sheets in the paper stack does not exceed the limit specified for that media.

1. turn it off & disconnect from computer
2. open printer & check for any obstructions
3. load a sheet of paper, press & hold the paper feed button while turning the printer on

Open the printer cover and look closely for tiny paper shreds that might got stuck between the rollers. If you have a canned air, try blowing out the paper path as those tiny piece of paper might be blocking the paper sensor.
