Sometimes its a piece of "Sticker" that can cover a photo cell.

If you have a compressed air tank you can try to use it to clean the printer. (Keep it way from the printer heads/ink (Or it will make a big mess))

Can you do a manual paper feed

Brother 7820N will not push my paper up, it keeps jamming


Try cleaning the rollers. You can get cleaning paper(sticky on both sides) from an office supply store. Run it thru a couple of times to see if that solves the problem.

Paper always jammed what can do with it? Is the paper I bought too thin? If not then why? How can I pull it out. I tried before, a few times, and I pulled all them out but not this time. So I really need...


These printers are noted not to work well with recycled paper and tend to jam. Other than that paper jams are usally due to paper being stuck inside in between the rollers even a small piece cause jams. Take the time to look carefully and note where it jams the next place the paper would have gone thru should have the problem.
I hope this helps.

Epson Stylus C82 won't feed paper evenly, and only feeds on the right, resulting in bad paper jams. I've tried everything; is there a special cleaner that I can use on the rollers or ?


first, try turning the printer upside down and see if anything comes out. i have seen in the past kids puttnig things in there etc... and that solves the problem.

There is only 1 main pickup roller so I dont believe its that, you might also have a small piece of paper jammed in that area.

thanks adi

Paper jam


Look where you put the paper in. See if you can see inside there and see the roller that turns and picks up the paper. If you can, make a mixture of alcohol and a little dish soap. Damp a rag with it, and reach in there to clean the rollers.  See if the rollers will turn manually, but be careful not to force anything.  Another way to get to the whole roller, would be to start making a print, while watching the rollers.  As soon as the rollers have turned half way, unplug the printer.  Now you can reach the other side and clean that.

There is another way to clean the rollers.  Using the alcohol mix, take a single sheet of paper, and damp one half of it with the solution.  Stick the single sheet in the paper tray, and make a print, but hold on to the paper so that it doesn't feed through the machine.  Do this several times, and the rollers turning against the wet paper should clean them.

Try to print again. It might take a few tries. The rollers have to turn against the paper and dry themselves off again.

If this works, then you need new rollers (cleaning them will only make them work temporarily and the problem will come more frequently until you change them).
