Question about Epson WorkForce Office Equipment & Supplies
After powering on epson wf-2530 says "printer error see your documentation" The printer will not do anything. No paper jam ever occurred and there is nothing in the tracks.
Turn the printer unit ON
2. Pull the power plug from the back side of it
3. wait 1 min
4. Plug unit back in
5. wait 3 full minutes
6. try to print does the error still exist? If yes continue below
Locate one piece of CARD STOCK paper and manually feed it up against the feed assembly and into the feed.Must be CARD STOCK PAPER, regular paper will not work. the idea is too dislodge any pieces of paper that may be broken off inside the rollers, and not visible to the eye. Repeat this process until the error goes away.
If you continue to experience problems, PLEASE RESPOND TO ME

You may not see a paper jam.
This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.
First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.
If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.
And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.
Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Press the stop/clear button then press the maintaince button(spanner) and the ON button all at the same time in that order.That will reset it.

First of all, look at the paper you pulled out - if it's in one piece, no corners missing, then the error isn't a paper jam thing. Now turn off the printer, push "stop", maintenace button and power button toghether, till a message appears. I also found the following tip that's also related to the same error, could be usefull: "As Epson printer users will know, waste ink from head cleaning etc. is channeled into absorbent pads in the base of the printer. Eventually these will fill up and need to be replaced, and some time before they actually fill the waste ink counter in the printer's firmware will signal an error and the machine won't print any more until the counter is reset. This normally requires a trip to the service depot (if the printer's worth the cost, and if it's realised that this is the problem -- lots of otherwise good printers go to the dump through this relatively minor problem.) The service depots have a program that can, among other things, reset this counter (but of course won't part with it -- there's money to be made, new pads to be sold...) There's a third-party utility available that can do this (look for sscserve.exe on the 'net -- carefully read the documentation and use it with great care...), but at the same time the pads need to be changed, otherwise you risk ink pooling in the base, sometimes finding its way out and making a right mess. Replacing the pads isn't for the faint-hearted, you have to virtually dismantle the printer to reach them. Here's how to get around it -- the two pictures below are almost self-explanatory: On the left rear of these printers is a small trapdoor held by a single screw. Remove it, look inside (down and to your left) and you'll see the waste ink tube. The tube is free at one end, and with a suitably curved piece of wire you can hook it and wangle the end out through the opening (you may dislodge a small piece of plastic in the process -- just put it back where it was, it's only a vibration damper.) At this point, you're almost there. All you need now is a suitable container for the waste ink, and to file a small slot in the trapdoor cover so you can put it back without pinching the tube (or you could just lave it off.) The container in the photo is a small square one with a snap-on lid, approx. 60mm square and holding about 150ml -- they're sold in sets of three for a few cents and are for making ice-blocks etc. in your freezer. Make a hole in the lid as shown (slightly larger than the tube to let air escape) insert the tube and forget about the internal pads forever. (I've used a new machine for the photos, don't expect the tube in yours to look so clean.)" Good luck

I have the same exact problem of paper half torn removed but I can not see the other half anywhere. The printer has hardly worked for at the most six pages and now showing paper jam error. How do I fix it?

You need to carefully clean the encoder strip. It's the clear strip behind the carriage that runs all the way from right to left. A damp Q-tip should remove any grease or fingerprints.
