How to Overcome the Epson Paperjam Printer

Meanwhile, to fix a paper jam on an Epson Printer, the steps that must be taken are as follows:

  • Remove the Toner cartridge (if any) and then slowly and carefully rock the printer upside down
  • Try removing all the cartridges from the Epson Inkjet printer and reinstalling them one by one.
  • Now, move the carriage or cartridge stuck to the left and then bring it back to its usual position. You can repeat this step 5-6 times.
  • Repositioning the encoder strip from the printhead carriage (it may sometimes slide out of place and activate the sensor which shows a continuous paper jam error message).
  • Make sure that the paper input tray is not too full.
  • Make sure the paper is not clamped too tightly in the paper tray.
  • Prepare a sheet of heavy paper such as glossy paper and when the printer is turned off, gently slide the paper through the paper path on the Epson printer. This way you will be able to reset the paper switch and it will help you push things stuck in paper paths that might be preventing the printer from printing.
  • If the Epson printer still shows the Paper jam error message, this indicates a hardware failure such as a faulty paper sensor or jammed paper jam and you are trying to force it out of the printer.
  • Check that the sensor moves freely, make sure that it is in the correct position and if you find no fault, take the printer to a local repair shop for repair. Usually, in most of the cases this happens due to a dirty or jammed sensor.
  • Look inside the printer through the paper path to see if the sensor arm is jammed. The paper sensor is usually located near the paper feed and where the paper exits from the printer. The paper must pass through the sensor smoothly as it moves through its path. 
  • If a piece of paper (even a small sheet of paper) or pins or external objects gets stuck inside the printer, it may be blocking the sheet of paper from moving through the desired path and a false paper jam error message appears on the printer. .

The best way to deal with the Epson paperjam printer is to manually run the print with a thick sheet of paper (maximum according to the printer, guys.. ) through the paper tray path to check if the paper moves freely and make sure there is nothing stuck in it that might prevent the paper from moving into the direction usually moves.

After performing all these steps, if your Epson printer still gives a “Paper Jam” error message, the cause of the error is a faulty sensor strip and you only have the option of taking the printer to a repair center to have it repaired.
