Re: paper feed problem
Hi Busy boy:
You need to remove the scanner unit then the top cover which underneathe the scanner. The screw that hold it down are regular No2 philips/pozzi.
If you are struggling, go to http://www.TheServiceManualShop.com nad get yourself a service manual. This will show the exact location of all the screws and tabs you need to find to get the cover off. You also have to remove some cables to get the scanner unit off so you can get to the ASF assembly.

The most common problem is a foreign object falling into the rear paper tray. Remove all the paper from the tray and unplug the machine. Turn it upside down and give it a good shake followed by a couple of healthy whacks on the base. See what falls out. If nothing falls out tip the machine (still upside down) vertically from side to side and listen carefully for anything rattling inside. If you hear nothing, put it all back together and try a test print. If the paper still jams or does not feed, see which side appears to be blocked and slide a flexible plastic strip along the back of the feed roller until you find an obstruction and remove it.

Issues with the paper feed could include:
Feeding multiple pages.
Misfeeds the paper.
Printed pages are not stacked neatly.
"No Paper Fed" or "Paper Jam" messages appear on the LCD.
To prevent these issues, try the following recommendations:
Verify the paper is loaded properly in the paper tray and the paper support flap is unfolded.
Pull the paper tray out of the machine and remove the output paper tray.
Remove the paper from the paper tray.
Pull the paper support out and unfold the paper support flap.
Fan the stack of paper well to avoid paper jams and misfeeds.
Gently insert the paper into the paper tray print side face down and the leading edge (top of the paper) in first. The paper should be flat in the tray and below the maximum paper mark. Be sure you do not push the paper in too far as it may lift at the end of the tray and cause feed problems.
Press and slide the paper guides on the sides of the paper to fit the paper width.
Clean the paper pick-up roller
NOTE: Illustrations shown below are from the representative product and may differ from your Brother machine.
Pull the paper tray completely out of the machine.
Unplug the machine from the AC power outlet and remove the Jam Clear Cover (1).
DO NOT place the jam clear cover face down as shown in the illustration. You may damage the cover and cause paper jam.
Clean the Paper Pick-up Roller (1) with isopropyl alcohol on a cotton swab.
Put the Jam Clear Cover back on. Make sure the cover is set properly.
Put the paper tray firmly back in the machine.
Re-connect the power cord.
Verify there is only ONE type of paper loaded in the paper tray.
Make sure that you use paper that meets our specifications.
To see the detail of the specifications, refer to the User's Guide. The latest User's Guide is available in the Manuals section.
Do not use paper that is damaged, curled, wrinkled, or irregularly shaped.
We recommend using Brother paper to ensure the paper meets the proper specifications.

I'm not familiar with the Epson Stylus printers, but I'm going to hazard a guess. If the paper does not move at all, the paper pickup feed mechanism is at fault. One of two methods is used to pick up the sheet. Either the front lower portion of the tray is lifted up to force the top sheet into the feed roller, or the feed roller is connected to a drop-swivel to drop the feed roller onto the top sheet of paper. You'll need to look carefully at the feed mechanism to determine if a gear or clutch is failing. If the paper moves into the machine about 1/2 inch and then stops, either the first paper feed roller past the pickup roller may be at fault. Also check to see if the paper sensor between the paper pickup roller and the first feed roller is working properly.
outfeed? u mean the fixing assembly?? where the paper gets warmed?? u need to unmount the panel, open the cartridge cover and unscrew. the slide panel and carefully unplugged the flat cable. then you need to remove the platten glass. remove left small cover and then remove platten glass. remove the black cover besides the scanner. now remove the left covers, all of them, and unplug the fixing assembly. they are at least two connectors that go right to the power supply board. now you need to unscrew the fixing assembly, see the top of the recently uncover top, you must see two holes, thru them you should see screws, two on one side and one on the other, unscrew them, and then you will finallly release the fixing assembly. now that you got it out remove the plastic cover if it's there and then remove the two screws that has one on each side, now rmeove the metallic cover, you may need to unlock a little metal locks on the sides, push or pull depending situation and then finally free the unit from its cover. at this point you must be really able to remove all the jammed paper. clean up with pressurized air if possible. now that is paper free you need to mount everything back as original. good luck!!
This is fairly common issue. Usually this is just a problem with the pick rollers position on the enganging tab.
So open top cover where the feed rollers are. Follow the shaft of the pick rollers to the front of printer. You should see a CLAER tab somewhere. It is supposed to sit on TOP of the WHITE engaging tab but more than likely is under it. Take something small & flat like a key or small flat head screw driver. PUSH the WHITE tab down which will aloow the CLEAR tab of the pick rollers to move up into the correct position. Close the cover. You should NOT have to power cycle the unit.
The cause for this is usually someone either over stacking paper or leaving a staple on the paper.
The problem with this machine is that you need to take off the top tilting cover, then remove several screws to take off the lower top cover. The print head is then visible. If you don't have experience, I wouldn't recommend it. You can ship it to me if you like. We are a Brother service center for 18 years. I'm in CT.
