Question about Epson Stylus CX4200 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Paper Jam This printer was working fine. I got new ink cartriges and replaced them according to the instructions because I got the message they were low(even though I knew there was some ink left in the old ones) and then all of a sudden the paper started feeding crooked. It makes all the right noises but feeds crooked and then tells me the paper is jamming so I should clear the path and try again, but it's not jammed, it's just not going through because it's feeding incorrectly.

There maybe some obstruction on the paper path, inspect visually any sign of abnormality in this area, replacing the ink would not cause this.

it is touching something thats why t is crooked, either small piece of paper, dirt, caked ink, or hardened ink on the roller, feeding unit may have some plate mis adjusted, misaligned feeeding tray as well. try this


cheers

My workforce WF-3540 displays "PAPER JAM". I can find no jam


This sounds weird but I will post it since is solved this problem for me. Despite following all the instructions I could not get rid of the "paper jam" message on my WF3540 . In desperation I tried changing the yellow ink cartridge (which was low) and after the printer went through all its "new cartridge" routine - lo and behold the paper jam message was gone and the printer worked!

Epson Artisan 835. Just set up. Printed fine. Tried to eject DVD/CD tray. Did not eject. I turned off unit. Turned back on. Now constantly says I have a paper jam when there is none. Cannot use.


Hi. I Have an Epson printer too and become to send the paper jam error when there not a paper jam on the printer. Check the ink cartrige bay with the printer off. The ink cartrige bay have to stay all the way to the right. If not push carefully to the right. Start again the printer and see what happens. This cause in certain ocassions the paper jam error. I hope this tip can help.

I keep getting error message C000 which tells me to shut down the printer and restart it. How do I fix this. Thanks


1) Make sure the tank holding all the ink cartriges is properly aligned and can move side-to-side.
2) If it is crooked or can't move, check below it for a paper jam -- when the jam is that bad, the C000 appears to override the normal Paper Jam warning.
3) Make sure none of the ink cartridges has run completely out -- I tend to use them until they're bone dry, and got the C000 error....inserting a new cartridge cleared it right up.

As soon as I started using recycled ink cartridges, I started getting a paper jam error on my printer. The control panel message instructs me to remove the back panel and clear paper jam. I've done this several times but there is no paper to clear and the message keeps coming back. I've tried turning of the printer and unplugging it to clear the memory, but that doesn't help. Could it be that the chip on the ink cartridge is messing with the printer's operating system?

HP PSC 1610 printer gives error message: Carriage Jam, clear carriage. I open the door and there isn't a Jam. I tried the solution (clean cartridge, turn off/on couldn't reset) posted by nanotech 9 Aug...


If you are getting a 'carriage jam' error as soon as you turn on your printer with no tasks in progress, then check for any piece of paper stuck in the carriage. Remove the paper carefully. If the paper tears, part of it might remain inside the paper path and damage the product.

Follow the steps for fix HP Printer Carriage Jam

  • Turn off the printer and open it to see where the paper is stuck.
  • Manually move the carriage toward the opposite side.
  • Check the paper path and remove any piece of paper or any other object that is stuck in the path.
  • Reconnect the power cord and turn on the printer.

Had paper jam. Followed instructions to release



Forgive me for asking this, but roughly speaking about 80 to 95% of problems involving ink or toner are resolved by the following:
Are you using a factory new ink cartridge supplied by the manufacturer of the printer?
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using the manufacturer’s new ink cartridges, then please contact their technical support group. Factory new cartridges usually have warranties on them.

I'm trying to replace black color cartridge, but get an error message: carrier jam How do I unjam it? Already did the unplug- check for paper jam and replug...no luck!


Remove all paper...(inspect closely for paper jammed way inside!)

also remove both ink cartriges, reinsert them one at a time carefully and properly....also double check the number code on the ink

the jam error could be either paper or cartriges confusing the printer. let me know if it works....k
