I have an epson printer and when I hit print, the paper slides right thru & says paper jam


  • Carefully remove the jammed photo paper. Gently pull the paper up and out of the paper feeder tray.

  • 2

    Reload the paper into the tray. Stack the paper on a flat surface and then carefully slide the paper stack straight into the paper feeder tray---along and aligned with the right side of the tray. Secure the stack in place by sliding the left "edge guide" against the paper stack.

    Press the "OK" button to resume printing. If you had a "Paper is jammed in the printer..." error message displayed on the control panel LCD, pressing "OK" should also clear the message.

  • 4

    Pull the paper from the printer, if the status message reappears and/or the printer doesn't print, and check the paper for folds, buckling and curled edges or corners. Also check the sheets for sticking. If any of your sheets stick or have damage, remove them from your photo paper stack and replace with new sheets. Reload the paper and press "OK" to try again.

    I tried to copy with my canon ir 2018 and my canon copy a half of the contents,and tell me load correct paper


    I believe you don't have the paper size slide on the front of the paper cassette correct. Look at the slide carefully because it also has the paper direction picture along with the size.

    WILL FEED PLAIN WHITE PAPER BUT WILL NOT FEED PHOTO PAPER


    Follow the steps:
    •1
    Turn on the printer and press the Paper Feed switch until the Auto Sheet Feeder indicator light turns on.
    •2
    Pull up on the paper sheet feeder on the top and back of the printer and slide out the paper support.
    •3
    Take a stack of no more than 10 pieces of photo paper and flatten the corners, if they are curled. Curled corners may cause jams within the printer.
    •4
    Place the paper in the paper sheet feeder with the printable side of the paper facing up. The printable side of photo paper is the shiny or whiter side of the paper.
    •5
    Print your documents as needed.

    Paper Cassette :

    •1
    Switch on the printer and press the Paper Feed switch until the Cassette indicator light turns on.
    •2
    Pull on the cassette on the bottom of the printer to slide it out of the printer.
    •3
    Flatten the corners of a stack of no more than 10 sheets of photo paper if the corners are curled. The paper may become jammed in the printer if the corners are curled.
    •4
    Place the stack of paper in the cassette so the paper is touching the right side and the printing side of the paper is facing down. Adjust the plastic paper guides so they touch the paper. The paper stack guides help facilitate the paper moving into the printer.
    •5
    Slide the cassette back into the bottom of the printer. The printer is ready for printing.

    Paper mismatch error


    I got around this problem by tricking the printer.
    The paper sensor, on my printer model hp4500 seems to only sense the paper at the beggining of the print job.
    What I did to trick the printer to print on odd size paper is slide the paper adjuster to 8.5 and put a regular white sheet in. Then put your odd size paper under it. When you print your document set the number of copies to 2 and print. The printer is going to sense that the paper is correct, and start the job.
    Here is the tricky part... once the first 8.5x11 sheet is almost all the way through quickly slide the paper adjuster over to match the size of your odd width paper. The printer should pick up the odd paper and print the second copy. Fool you printa! You should be able to do batches of odd paper size under the first 8.5X11. I hope this helps.
