Sometimes dried ink on the roller causes it to incorrectly "grip" the paper, making it slip in one section and pull to the side, Check the rollers for Ink and other dirt.
Also try less paper in the feeder, it may simply be too much and is not able to feed it correctly.
Hope this helps GM

How do I fix a printer error


turn the printer off..then after a while it turn back on, the jammed paper will come out automatically if it doesn't pull the paper towards you not the other way pull it forward until it is totally outside the exit tray.. dont pull it on the feeding unit cause it will damage the feeder unit and the paper might tear apart leaving a piece of it inside that would be more difficult cause you have to open the entire printer unit.

Paper feeder stuck


If the paper feeder stuck, do the following:
  1. Gently pull any jammed paper out from the output tray or sheet feeder.
  2. If paper is stuck inside, open the printer cover and remove the jammed paper, including any torn pieces. Then close the printer cover.
  3. If paper remains near the sheet feeder, press the paper feed roller lever inside the paper feeder to release the jammed paper, then carefully pull it out.
  4. Load the paper correctly.
  5. Press the cp_button_14.gif stop button to resume printing.
  • If the printer continues to jam or misfeed paper, and you are certain that there are no foreign objects lodged down inside the paper feed area, your printer may require service. Please call Epson technical support for further assistance.

    The printer keeps telling me it's out of paper, which it isn't


    1> Open the sheet feeder cover and pull out the paper support.

    Set paper, aligning the right edge of the paper to the cover guide with the paper's print side facing up.

    Pinch and slide the paper guide to the paper's left side.

    Note: Make sure to set paper lengthwise. Setting Credit Card sized paper long-side down by mistake may cause a paper jam.

    Pull down the paper output tray supporting with both hands.

    Pull out the extension completely.

    Ensure that the Power lamp and the Auto Sheet Feeder lamp light.

    Note: If the Cassette lamp lights, press the Paper Feed switch to light the Auto Sheet Feeder lamp.
    If the Auto Sheet Feeder lamp does not light even after pressing the Paper Feed switch, Paper Source in the printer driver may be set to the setting other than Paper Feed Switch.

    Explanation of the paper jam message

    A 241.09 Paper Jam message indicates that the printer thinks a sheet of paper has jammed at the front of the printer. The jammed sheet of paper is most likely to be found in one of the paper trays or under the toner cartridge.
    NOTE: If you select Show areas on the operator panel, you can view one or more images to help you locate and clear the jam.

    Clearing the jam
    To resolve the paper jam message, you must first clear the entire paper path. To access the jam area, you will need to open one or more of the paper trays. Follow the steps in the table below to help you locate and clear the jam.
    Step Action Image 1 Open the printer paper tray (tray 1), and remove any jammed media you find there. pattlnk_10222007_1922-enus28872_24109paperjam1_t64x_en_us.gif 2 Open the front cover and remove the toner cartridge. Examine the area inside the printer and remove any jammed media you find there. pattlnk_10242007_159-enus28872_24109paperjam5_t64x_en_us.gif 3 If you have a duplex option installed, also remove the duplex access tray and remove any jammed media you find there. pattlnk_10302007_1559-enus28860_24x17paperjamduplex_t64x_en_us.gif 4 If you were printing from an optional paper tray, such as tray 2 or tray 3, open any optional trays, starting at the top, and remove any jammed media. Pull the print media either up or down. If it does not pull easily one way, try the other way pattlnk_10222007_1957-enus28872_24109paperjam3_t64x_en_us.gif 5 If you are printing from an optional 2000-sheet feeder, open the front door. Press the elevator button (A) to lower the tray. Remove any partially fed media from the feeder.
    NOTE: Make sure the stack of print media is straight and pushed all of the way into the feeder. Incorrectly loaded paper is the most common cause of paper jams from a 2000-sheet feeder option.
    pattlnk_10222007_2110-enus28872_24109paperjam4_t64x_en_us.gif
    For a larger image, click here. 6 Finally, reinstall all of the paper trays and press the pattlnk_10222007_2117-select_button.jpg button to try printing again.
    NOTE: You may receive a different paper jam message informing you that another sheet of paper is jammed elsewhere in the printer. If this occurs, the error code will indicate the location. Click here for a diagram showing the error code locations. The paper path will vary, depending on the paper source and number of paper feed options installed.
    Remove any jammed sheets of paper you find and try printing again.

    False paper jam


    If the paper is lodged too far into the printer and can't be removed:
    Press the power button to turn the printer off.
    Pull firmly on the paper to remove it. If you can't reach the paper because it is too far in, raise the front cover and remove the paper from the front of the printer.
    Close the front cover.
    Press the power button to turn the printer back on.
    Resend your document to print.

    Ensure that:
    The paper is a recommended paper for inkjet printers.
    You do not force the paper down into the printer when you load it. For example, if you are loading letter or A4 size paper, the top edge of the paper should extend above the top of the sheet feeder.
    The printer is on a flat, level surface.
    The left paper guide is against the side of the paper.
    You do not load too much paper in the sheet feeder. Depending on the thickness of your paper, the sheet feeder can hold up to 100 sheets of paper.
    The left paper guide does not cause the paper to bend in the sheet feeder.
    Your printer feeds regular paper as expected. If regular paper feeds without causing problems, load the envelopes vertically against the right side of the sheet feeder. Make sure the paper guide is against the side of the envelopes.
    Envelopes or the appropriate specialty papers are selected in the printer driver.
    You are using a paper or envelope size supported by your printer.
