Epson stylus sx435w says paper out.

If your Epson Stylus SX435W is indicating that there is no paper even though there is paper loaded, there could be several reasons for this issue. Here are some steps you can try to troubleshoot the problem:
  1. Check that the paper is loaded correctly: Ensure that the paper is loaded into the printer's paper tray or cassette correctly. Make sure that the paper is aligned properly and not too tightly or too loosely loaded. Also, make sure that the paper is not curled or wrinkled.
  2. Check for paper jams: If the printer sounds like the wheels are turning to engage the paper but the paper doesn't move, there may be a paper jam. Carefully check for any paper jams, and remove any paper that may be causing the problem.
  3. Clean the paper feed rollers: Over time, the paper feed rollers can get dirty or covered in debris, causing them to slip and not grab the paper properly. Use a lint-free cloth dampened with water to clean the rollers. Be sure to let them dry completely before attempting to print again.
  4. Reset the printer: Sometimes resetting the printer can clear any errors or issues that are causing the "paper out" message. Turn off the printer, unplug it from the power source, wait for a few minutes, and then plug it back in and turn it on again.
If none of these steps solve the problem, you may need to contact Epson support or take your printer to a service center for further assistance.

Hp j6480 printer wont print keeps sending a paper mismatch message

Paper mismatch errors occur because the product scans the width of the envelope before printing. If the paper size setting in the printer driver does not match the paper actually loaded in the product, the product reports a 'Paper Mismatch' error. The message saves paper and ink by preventing print jobs from accidentally printing on the wrong paper. For example, the print job might be for a 101.6 x 152.4 mm (4 x 6 inch) photo, but there is letter-size paper loaded in the product. The error message displays to make sure that ink is not wasted on the wrong paper type. try this out , disable the automatic paper type sensor.
  1. Open the Print dialog box.
    1. In Word 2003, click File , and then click Print
    2. In Word 2007, click the Office button (c01850900.gif ), and then click Print .
  2. Make sure that your product is in the Name drop-down list box, and then clickProperties .
  3. Click the Features or Paper/Quality tab.
  4. In the Paper type drop-down list, click Plain paper .
  5. Click OK to close the Properties dialog box.
  6. Click OK again to print the current print job.

My OKI C5500 will only print from the MP tray, and will not take paper from the bottom paper tray, even though there is plenty of paper in the bottom tray. Its giving me a 490 Error message, but I do NOT...

490 error means -

LOAD mmm AND PRESS ONLINE SWITCH 490: MP TRAY EMPTY

Print job from MP Tray has been received and the MP Tray is empty.

Load the requested media (mmm) in the MP Tray and press ON-LINE.

Check your print driver settings and see if your defualt try is set for the MP Tray. Also see if the page setup for the print job is set for MP tray.

Printer is loaded with paper but get message

Although you really haven't given me enough information, I will posit and response for you.

A "Load Paper Error can be caused by the application telling you to change the "TYPE or SIZE" of paper that is in your paper tray.

For example, The application thinks you want the page printed on "Letterhead" paper, but it know that you have plain bond paper installed.

So you are sent a change paper type message.

The fix is to hit go and skip around that error.

The actual fix is to make sure that your printer driver, application and the printer are all set to the same size paper and type paper.

Epson R300

Make sure the photo paper is not curling when it goes in. I had same problem before, with paper jam error even though the photo paper did not appear jammed. I noticed the photo paper was slightly curled, so I flattened it out and that solved my problem. Also, if you are loading multiple sheets at one time, try just loading one sheet and see if that fixes it.
