Epson WF-2530 printer always 'paper out' when I try to print

Q: Epson WF-2530 printer always 'paper out' when I try to print

Every time I try to print anything, my WF-2530 feeds a sheet through and reports paper out. The unit has seen little use and has never had a paper jam. I have carefully loaded only a few sheets of regular 20 lb paper and it does it every time. I have done the same with some Kodak photo paper for inkjet and gotten the same results. It simply does not detect that there is paper loaded.

I have tried resetting the unit, powering off then on, disconnecting and reconnecting the power cord. Nothing causes it to recognize that paper is loaded after it feeds the first sheet through. Press the 'OK' button and it will feed another sheet and continue to report 'paper out'.

I don't want to replace such a lightly used printer. If I can correct whatever is wrong with the paper sensor it would be a blessing. Help!

Just updated the drivers on my Epson Artisan 700. When I use Photoshop CS3 and print it works fine, however, without changing any settings, if i print to a paper that is thicker, the printer acts like it is printing, but when it comes out, nothing is on it. After printing about 10 times last night, I got only 2 that came out with anything. However, everytime I put in regular paper, it prints fine. Any ideas?

Reading up on it, I found that this printer has an auto-duplex feature, which lead me to the question:

How damp is the paper going to be after printing duplex, especially if I print with 50% - 100% coverage?

My initial conjecture is that it wouldn't be wet or curled, as it would be counterproductive to Epson's image to provide a printer with an auto-duplex feature that would drench the paper.

After doing a little bit of research, it seems that it's largely going to depend on the ink itself. According to macworld.com, "pigment inks...are made up of tiny, encapsulated particles that sit on top of the paper, instead of being absorbed into a paper’s fibers, which is what happens with dyes." The article further goes on to state that pigment inks are primarily for the purpose of longevity. Well, I'm not particularly concerned about it's longevity but I am interested in whether it's ability to dry faster than dye ink is justifiable for an investment in pigment inks?

A little more research revealed that paper quality is also a major factor (duh). Only issue is, I've already purchased a bunch of cheap 20 lb, 96 bright white paper and don't want to purchase paper separately for this additional printer (when I mean "bunch", I mean that I possess cases of paper in the double digits). Another reason I'm hesitant to make any move towards better paper is that it seems that the higher quality paper is designed to ... Read more

I purchased this printer about 2 years ago, so of course it is out of warranty! I have contacted Epson and got blah blah, the same obvious thing that is in the manual. Here finally, is my problem. the printer started kicking out a blank page between printed pages every so often, then it started kicking out 2 blank pages and stooping with the maintenance light on. I would check the paper and find nothing wrong, I would push the maintenance button and the printing would proceed. Now I have reached the point where a printed page is the exception and a paper jam is the norm. there is no paper jam! just the light coming on. what I see happening is that the paper as it starts to feed, stops just short of where the printer head would start to print. I have checked the rollers and cleaned them to no avail. I know I can go buy a new printer, but it just frost's me to have to replace a printer thats less then 2 years old! Any suggestions? Thanks ahead of time! Rick

Hello all,

REALLY hope someone can help.
The RX620 is the ONLY printer scanner that I know of that can scan large, clear images from 35mm slides. I NEED NED NEED that; which is why I searched high and low to get this printer.
***OK***
I just set up this RX620 (as/per instructions: NOT hooked to computer yet). Therefor the fact that I have a brand new iMac ... 3.06 GHz Intel Core Pro Duo ... OSX 10.6.4 has nothing to do with my problem. I am asked to supply that info here though.

IMMEDIATELY, upon turning on printer and running (as/per instructions) some paper through, it began grabbing and mis-feeding paper (1 sheet at a time from my 4 0r 5 sheets in the tray). It pulled paper at an angle, sending it through crumpled. MIS-FEED.

I cleared that, checked tray and paper situation - all looked good. tried again; same results.
NOW (after 4 or 5 more attempts ...w/ and w/out the COLOR button trick ...and then the B&W + STOP buttons RESET trick, I get: BAD SQUEAL NOISE at start and "Printer Error occurred - Please see documentation" in window of printer. NOTHING in documentation addresses a fix for this. NOTHING I can think to do gets me beyond this point.

btw:
*Yes, ink cartridges correctly inserted, moved back in correct position; unit completely closed. NO paper or pieces of paper remain inside printer feed area.etc. etc.

I'm using a Toshiba Satellite laptop running Windows Vista. I have also been successfully using an HP Photosmart B209a "all in one" printer with a wireless connection. I began getting low ink messages, so installed new HP cartridges. When I try to align the new cartridges, I get a message that says the alignment failed, but I can still use the printer. However, when I try to print any document I have generated on my computer, the printer picks up the paper and goes through the machinations of printing, but when it spits out the paper, it is blank. When I print a test page, it works. When I print a page from a website, it works. It will copy a document. It simply won't print anything I generate using my word processor or spreadsheet (I use Microsoft Works).

HP's Monitor program says that the computer is ready.

I have used HP Solutions Center, but nothing it suggests has made any difference. I have checked my wireless connection and it is working, obviously, or the printer wouldn't be getting the message to print, as it surely is, since it starts, picks up the paper and goes through the whole process of printing. However, nothing comes out except a blank piece of paper.

Hope you can help.

This question relates to the Epson Stylus C82 Ink Jet printer. I've had it for a couple of years, always worked fine. Last week, since the black ink had run out, I replaced it. It went through the whole ink charging routine, and the ink monitor says the black ink is now full.

So far so good.

But when I went to print something, the page comes out blank. I've double checked all the settings to make sure there isn't some odd option selected somewhere.

This is the first problem I've had. So, anyone got any suggestions as to how I might get it working again? I know these printers are temperamental little buggers. I may as well try poking it or any suggestions since it would probably cost me more to bring it somewhere to be fixed than to buy a new one.

I have downloaded the appropriate drive (Windows 7 64 bit) from the EPSON web site but while the printer chugs away and goes through the full motions of printing, the pages come out completely blank . I have cleaned the heads a number of times but am still unable to get it to print even a checking pattern . Since purchase I have inserted a new black ink cartridge ( the other colours seem OK ) so would expect that some impression would appear .
Does anyone have any thoughts as to whether it is a driver issue or whether I should consider physically checking the printer head to ensure that the nozzles are not blocked.

I have an Epson SX200 Series printer and since upgrading to Windows 10 I occasionally get a strange set of symptoms:-

If I load a *.doc file I can print it OK. However, if I double click on a jpeg file and open it on the desktop and then select print......

I get the "We couldn't reach this printer" error.

Similarly, but slightly differently, if I "right click" on a jpeg file icon and select print, the printing process starts (a whirring noise) but then just feeds a sheet through and ejects it without printing anything.

By navigating to "Devices and Printers" I can confirm that the Epson has been selected as being the default printer. If I right click on it and select Printer Properties and then select the "General" tab and click on Print Test Page, it prints that OK.

I have tried uninstalling the software and removing the device and then reinstalling and making it the default printer without any success.

I have a REALLY bad paper jam... My printer is MF4350d. The paper jam troubleshooting outlined in the manual did not help. When I opened up the toner area and the back end of the printer, I can't see see the paper at all. It looks like the paper is jammed in area that I don't know how to access to (if I can, aside from taking the whole printer apart).

Does anyone know any way to fix this problem? :/ The paper that got stuck was a label paper. I know for sure it is stuck because the paper did not come out at all. The WHOLE paper got stuck. The label paper half half label peeled off. I am assuming that the reason it might have curled up in the printer is due to the disappearance of that half label? :/

The label paper is a regular size paper with 2 labels divided evenly on the paper.

Is taking the printer apart the only way? (is that even safe/good to do on my own part?)

Hi there
Try taking out all of the paper out from the feed tray and opening up its lid, just like when you're changing cartriges and look around inside. Most likely there is a piece of paper stuck in between rollers inside. If you do find paper stuck inside, try pulling gently on it from the front. If you cant grasp it, you can use pair of tweezers or something but make sure not to jam it into anything...

Good luck, hope this helps...

My XP-247 printer has a history of inconsistent printing, especially on anything thicker than standard copy paper. Today, it's back to its old tricks; prints on matt photo paper but refused afterwards to repeat the operation.
Paper goes in but straight out without a mark, usually ejecting two sheets even though only one was called for.
Returning to paper - it's fine.
Anything else won't work.

This problem is not in the troubleshooting menu - although it really ought to be.

I've gone into the "Printers and Fax" window, opened the "Server Properties" window in the "File" drop down menu. In the "Forms" tab, I've created and saved the paper size I need.

I go back to the "Properties" for my Epson, get to the "advanced printing preferences" and open the dropdown menu for paper size....and my form is not there.

What the heck am I doing wrong? This is the same procedure I used for my previous printer (OkiData Microline) and everything was cool.

I have an Epson WF 4740 printer. Haven't had it very long!

I had a paper jam which I easily cleared from the back of the printer. But the jam won't go away. I tried unplugging it from the back, I took out the paper trays to make sure I wasn't missing anything, I lifted up the rollers on the back of the printer. I wanted to try taking out the print cartridges but they are all the way over to the left on the machine and I can't take the cartridges out unless it is centered. Not sure this is the problem anyways.

I tried watching a youtube video, but I couldn't find one for the 4740 and the one I did watch had some things that didn't look like it could be done on my printer.

ps I was getting a message that the ink was low on my printer before the jam happened. Could that have anything to do with the problem?

Does anyone know where I can get a large package of Epson Ultra Premium Glossy Paper fairly cheaply? I do a lot of pictures, etc, and require the above paper. I looked all over Google, can't seem to find anyone what stocks a larger package the 50. Thanks, Hope I'm on the right forum,

You didn't say which size sheets you need.
It looks like Epson ultra premium glossy paper comes in these sizes:
4" X 6"
5" X 7"
8" X 10"
8.5" X 11"

I have an Epson 1400 printer.....I want to know if there is any issue at all in using non-Epson premium glossy paper for that setting when I print. Same question for other similar setting: if the setting on the printer is "Epson ultra-premim glossy photo paper," what if I use another brand of glossy photo paper instead?

I like the Epson paper, and I don't want to be penny-wise and pound-foolish....but if there are better deals out there for what amounts to the same product, I want to know that.

thanks!

My Epson Workforce 500 has recently started feeding paper crooked from the paper tray. As far as I know, nothing has changed in the settings. I can copy from the document feeder and it feeds the paper slower so it doesn't jam. With regular printing, it feeds crooked. I tried taking out the paper and fanning it, readjusted the guide used paper new from the package instead of the paper already opened. I also uninstalled and reinstalled the printer driver. Nothing looks broken and I am stuck. I am running Windows XP SP3.

Try checking the paper path for an obstruction. Even just a smalll scrap of paper can cause this.

I have a win 7 laptop with wireless connection to Epson workforce 840 which has worked perfectly until yesterday. I was trying to copy some documents and got an error message: "ADF paper jam."
I followed all the steps in my manual for clearing a paper jam--I found no paper stuck anywhere in the machine. After trying to get the documents to feed, I realized that the Auto Document Feeder (ADF) was not "grabbing" the documents and rolling them through the machine for making the copies. I cannot find any obstructions; the rollers seem to be working. I tried several different types of documents to see if that made a difference. Each time I get the same error message.

My only thought at this point is that the ADF is broken but I'm wondering if it is fixable.
Any ideas?

After having a paper jam in my Epson Stylus RX 620 the error message "Paper jam. Press the Color button. If the error is not cleared, please clear by hand" will not go away. I pressed COlor and the message did not go away. I manually cleared all evidence of a paper jam. There are no bits or pieces of paper left in the printer anywhere that I can find. The Setup button will not function. The buttons that do seem to function simply repeat the error message. There is nothing in the documentation that addresses this problem. This issue was previously discussed here but as that thread is expired I can't discover if anyone had a solution so I am compelled to start a new thread on this issue. How do I solve the problem short of buying a new printer?

I'm trying to fix my mom's Epson Stylus CX5800F all-in-one. She got it about three weeks ago, and until today it was working just fine.

When it starts to print, it grabs the paper and pulls it in crookedly, and then the paper stops moving. The printer thinks it has paper, you can hear it printing, and there are no error messages. The paper doesn't seem to be getting past the first set of rollers. All the cables are fine, all the software is fine, the paper thickness is set correctly, and the paper is loaded correctly. She did hear it make a odd noise just before the problem started.

I'm pretty sure it's a mechanical problem. Is there anything I can do to fix it? I did go through Epson's online help and the manual that came with it the printer and there was nothing useful. I have emailed their tech support, but I'm not expecting any real help from them, I almost never get helpful information that way. It's past the fourteen days she has to return an item to the store(Staples). It should still be under warrenty with Epson, but it would be simpler if I could fix it myself. Or is this something where it will have to be sent in to repaired or be replaced?
 

A:Epson Stylus CX5800F paper feeding problem

Good Afternoon ivanova, you would appreciate the way in which the paper is gripped by a roller when a "ledge" moves in proximity to it.
Normally the paper should progress uniformly into the thing and is initially held reasonably straight by the width containment movable tab on the side of the paper chute.

If the paper does not feed correctly and the tab is set appropriately there are a few things to check.
1. ensure the paper is properly dry and of proper type.
2. always fan the sheets to ensure there is no stiction between sheets whenever you load.
3. Inspect the paper chute is clear and has no obvious apparent impediment or mis-alignment, including any evidence of previous material that should not be present.

That is about as far as you can go, arrange warranty maintenance.

qldit.
