Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
The paper jam is detected 2 ways: the effort on the motor for the paper rollers is monitored and if it's too high it triggers the warning and there are a series of position sensors on the rollers bearings - if they get pushed out by the jam they trigger them.
You still get the error because, most likely, one of the rollers has been severely yanked out of its position. You will have to open it , inspect the mechanism to locate the out-of-place roller and push it back into position if possible. If the plastic gearing and / or its bearing have been damaged beyond repair the entire printer is dead, there are no spare parts for the mechanism of Epson printers.

Hi, well believe it or not this is not too uncommon... lol.. I see this type of "Problem" in my shop from time to time, and it is not only 8 year olds that do this .. Grown Ups do this a lot..too.
Anyway when this happens it is NOT good, and the ONLY way to fix it is to have any broken bits replaced and have it realigned, and this really should be done by an Epson, printer professional. It is a difficult and tricky job, even for a professional.
Now in saying this though, I am not sure if this would be an economic fix, the cost a new printer may well be less than the repair? This depends on any parts that may need to be used, often plastic fittings are snapped internally, and these add to the overall cost.
IF you do wish to try to repair this unit, before you get any repair work done, FIRST, get a "Quote" as to the nature and costing as to the repair. This way at least one can make up ones mind as to what to do, repair or replace.
