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

Question: 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!

Every time i try to print something with my Epson WF 2530, its says "paper out or loaded incorrectly" even when there is plenty of paper. there is no jam and when i try to print, the paper just shoots out blank. its been working fine for a long time and just suddenly started this between printings yesterday.
Is there any sort of reset?

im using Windows 8.1 and running the printer wirelessly.
any suggestions would be appreciated.

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?

Hi guys, This is my first post on the forum, so here goes.I have an Epson WF 2530 printer which I bought new from Tesco's around 18 months ago and up to now it has done everything that it's been asked to do, untill today. When I want to print a document it just rolls out a blank sheet and an error report on the lcd display says " Paper out. Load paper and press OK " even though there is ample paper present. Just to rule it out, I have taken the printhead out, cleaned and replaced it as well as replaced the ink  cartridgesAnother furum I viewed says that it is a fault with the paper sensor however I've no idea where to locate it.Any suggestions would be welcome.      Thanks         Hamer.

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

My Epson Stylus Color 777 printer won't "grab" and then feed the paper. There is no software problem. The printer itself is working properly as I was able (just once) to hand feed the paper. It "grabbed" and printed a page just fine. The ink cartridges are fine. There was never an "ink low" message, but just to be sure, I inserted fresh ones. The green power light is blinking indicating that there is an instruction to the printer to print the original document I wanted to print. The red error light is on solid. I think the printer is erroneously reading a paper jam. Those of you familiar with this printer will know that it is really a basic device. You couldn't jam paper in it without easily seeing the problem. Help! Any ideas how to get the paper to feed down into the printer?Thanks!!

I relize that this is a hardware problem, and I will also post it under hardware as well. I thought that someone in this catagory might have encountered this problem as well. Here goes, I purchased this printer about 2 years ago, so of course it is out of waranty! 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 stoping with the maintenence light on. I would check the paper and find nothing wrong, I would push the maintenence 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?

I am attempting to print 8-1/2X11 half-fold greeting cards (Avery #3265). Most of the time the feed mechanism will not pick the paper. Sometimes the paper will be partially picked, but not advanced all the way to the print position. Occasionally the feed mechanism will work perfectly printing 4, 5, even 6 sheets in succession. I have fanned the paper, tried one sheet at a time, even rolled the leading edge slightly, but this rarely helps.

Has anyone else had this problem? How did you solve it?

Could the feed rollers have something on their surface that causes them to not be "sticky" enough. Is there a way to access the feed rollers to clean them?

Thanks for any suggestions.
 

Answer:Epson Artisan 835 Printer Paper Feed

Welcome to Major Geeks!

First, I would use a can of air duster to clean the inside of the printer. Dust and paper residue can sometimes cause this problem.

If air dusting doesn't work, it is likely an inherent problem with the paper feed mechanism having trouble feeding thick card stock. I have a similar issue with my Samsung color laser CLP-300. If I'm printing card stock, the only sure way to keep it from jamming is to manually feed one sheet at a time.

I have not turned my Epson R1900 printer on in a few months and today, after turning I on, it is registering a paper jam. However, I cannot find any obstructions inside. I have contacted Epson who are quoting ?220+ for a repair, which is not worth it. Is there anything I can do?Thanks,Paul

Answer:EPSON R1900 printer paper jam issue

Have you tried canned air on it to blow out any dust etc from its inside? 99% of the time its as simple as blowing it out to remove obstruction.There are 2 types of sensors that when triggered it thinks paper is present or jammed. I have seen where a fuzzball or ink gets on this sensor if a break beam type, although ink on it was only from a person who had a printer in use for about a year tipped it on its side when cleaning her desk and excess ink in the waste ink tray ran out of the tray and across the sensor surface. Each time you perform a print head / nozzle clean it dumps ink into this compartment that over time can build up a good amount of wasted ink $$$. If canned air wont do it, look for the paper sensor. Some are a break beam type detection and others have a small plastic mechanical flag that triggers sensor for paper detected or jam when in position of paper present. These cheap plastic mechanical flags get stuck sometimes. If you have this type of paper present/jam sensor check to make sure it moves freely and rests in the non-paper present/jam position.

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.

Hello,I've started working in an office that uses an Epson CX6900F. Great printer, nice quality. But it has a small problem. It will print a page or two, then say "Paper out or not loaded correctly, please insert paper and press the OK button". Sometimes it will print 3 or 4 pages and then give this message, but thats about the maximum.Most documents I print are 20-30 pages, and I print several copies. So I stand by the printer, pick the paper up and put it back in and press OK.I've tried:1.Loading less paper2.Loading the most paper possible3.Flopping the the stack of inserted papers over so top of the stack lays on the cover instead of standing up in the feeder (I thought the change of angle might help).4.Pushing tighter the little plastic bit on the side that aligns the paper straight in there.5.Opening up the little bit on the side that aligns the paper straight in there, thinking maybe it was too tight and 'holding' the paper in.6. Beating the machine with a bat.Well, #6 not yet, but soon.The printer is a year old, and the other people in the office don't remember this happening "as often" but it did happen.Now, the easy thing to do would be to take it to a repair place, BUT....I live/work in Thailand.

Check the manual, if you have, and see if you can cause the printer to run a self-test.  See if the self-test produces any print on the page.  Then you will know the printer itself is good.

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 a Epson Stylus Photo R240. It wasn't used for a few weeks so I wasn't surprised when trying to print and little or no ink ending up on the page. I've put in new cartridges (cheapo ones but they're normally OK for me) and run the "Clean Print Head" function numerous times. There are no error messages but still very little ink is getting on the page. Is there anything anyone can suggest?

Answer:Epson printer won't print

It is possible the print head(s) is(are) blocked. There are three ways around this, the first is to do as you have done and leave the ink from the new cartridges to 'soak' through - it will eventually clean the heads: two is to buy a cleaner cartridge and follow the instructions - again this may take some time: three is to manually clean using a syringe and plastic tube or soaking with water.

Hi,I hope someone can help with this problem.Basically about a year ago my wife bought a secondhand computer from Bigpockets.Specs:Compaq Deskpro EN series SFFPentium 3 - 600mhz15GB hard drive256mb memory2 USB (Ver 1)Windows MEMy wife had an old Epson printer that would print faithfully from the serial cable. However when she got my old Epson C46 USB printer it would not print. I know the printer and the cable are both fine and I've also tested both USB ports they too work. Windows ME is fully updated from the Microsoft site.I installed all the relevent drivers from the original Epson installation disk & tried updated drivers from their website, still to no avail.I've used Epsons own activex problem finder online but it reports that there is no problem.I think there is a problem with the allocation of the ports etc, but how you get around this I haven't a clue.Any help would be graciously accepted.cheerspicleo :-(

Answer:Computer can't print to Epson USB printer (C46)

I had a similar problem when I installed one on my sister's machine. You have to follow the instructions to the letter, only switch on when it tells you etc. To start again I had to delete everything relating to Epson that was left after removing it via "Add/Remove" programmes. I can't remember all the steps but the Epson help desk told me how when I phoned them.

Hi all, finally back online and with new PC up and running fine (anyone who really wants the detail of the problem solving, ask but I won't bore anyone with details!So to current prob, have invested in an Epson Stylus C82 after a good deal of reading and a good PCA review.However I have had a problem from print 1! The paper feed on the exit of the printer has three small plastic wheels on the feed bar, these are marking my photo prints.Anyone else encountered this or got any solutions???Thanks, Epirb.

I'm overseas at the moment, and have just replaced two empty ink cartridges in my host's Epson C90 printer with genuine Epson ones. Everything works okay, and the cartridges show up okay in the on-screen ink monitor, but there's occasional white stripes across the print.
Problem is, I can't find any head-cleaning routine in the Start -> Printers and Faxes -> Epson C90 screen. When I click on Printer and then select Properties I get an option to print a test page, but no option to clean the heads when the test page doesn't come out right.
Any ideas where this function, presuming it exists for this printer, can be found please? Or do I just have to hope it will clean itself enough after several repeated boot-ups?

The computer is a Asus/Mesh with plenty of memory and a large hard drive.

I run Windows 7 (64 bit) on an ASUS laptop and have recently bought (2nd hand) an Epson Stylus D 78 for simple printing needs. . 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.
 

Answer:EPSON Stylus D 78 printer wont print

i suspect the other colours maynot be OK
But you should be able to do a clean and a head alignment from the printer - see if that prints out correctly

did you see the printer working before you purchased

also a lot of printers and particularly epsom, do often use the colour to print out just black text -

hi guys, i recently bought an epson aculase c900, and everytime i now print, it smellsi like something is buring. Doyou guys have any idea why. I recently replaced the black toner. thanks in advance!!!!!!!!! Skaria

Answer:epson laser printer smells like burning when print

I learnt about how photocopiers work in physics and i think laser printer work in the same way. It works because of static electricity. Negative charges are placed onto the paper in all the relevant places, so for example if you had a big X on your page it would but lots of positive electrons on the paper the paper would then go to the toner where it blasts black powder on to the sheet of paper, this powder is naturally negatively charged so it sticks to the paper in the correct places. The paper then goes to the heater where it gets heated to make sure the powder or ink is burnt on, this is why paper is warm when it comes out, this could be you problem. I think it could be that some powder has stuck on the heating element.Hope this helps

I have an Epson 740 colour which prints perfectly.Occasionally when switched on, the print head does it's usual drive all the way left then back to the parked position on the right except that it seems to drive too far right and makes a loud clunk, all the lights come on so I switch it off.When switched back on it is usually fine and prints well.I wondered if there is a dirty switch/sensor or somethingAny ideas?

Answer:Epson printer--print head driving into end stop.

Get a soft cloth and spray a light oil like WD-40 onto it. Then wipe along the bar that the printhead runs on thus lubricating it.This was a fix that I found somewhere on the Web and it worked perfectly for me.

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?)

Please help thank you very much.

Hi everyone - sorry if I have posted this in the wrong place - if I have, maybe you could guide me to the correct one.
I have an Epson Stylus SX515W and the other day a paper jam occurred. The only way to fix it was to pull the paper back out the way it came in as there wasn't enough paper to grasp it and pull it out the way it should have come. Anyway, since then, it just won't print anything as it keeps saying the paper is jammed and you can hear the printer "knocking" as it moves from left to right. Is there anything I can do to fix this or is it broken? (It's not even like its really old and we haven't really used it that much).
Any comments would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:epson 777 paper jam

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 have not turned my Epson R1900 printer on in a few months and today, after turning I on, it is registering a paper jam. However, I cannot find any obstructions inside. I have contacted Epson who are quoting ?220+ just to look at it, which I simply can't afford.

Is there anything I can do?

Thanks,
Paul

First I would get a flash light and inspect the feed path from every angle for stuck pieces of paper. That might cause the paper being pull in crooked.

Second clean the feed roller a number of times with an alcohol pad (like doctors use before giving you a shot). Both of the papers you mention (and many others) leave behind coating that eventually fouls the feed roller's ability to grab paper properly.Click to expand...

I have been asked to produce some banners for a 50th birthday party. I have prepared the image, which I wish to print on A4 micro-perforated continuous paper. The banner is to be seven continuous A4 sheets, ie 210mm high X 2080mm wide. The driver for the R200 allows custom sizes, but for some reason the minimum is 890mm x 890mm. How can I set the printer to print 210mm x 2080mm?

Answer:Epson R200 Paper Sizes

Hav eyou actually tried printing the banner. The print dialogue box for my R220 shows the minimum as 890 x 890, but this is in units of 0.01mm, so I think the minimum is actually 8.9mm x 8.9mm!

hi,I've got a new epson SX200 which which is working perfectly, except i just tried to use some FujiFilm photo inkjet paper, and the printer won't draw it in - says the paper tray is empty. Any suggestions are very welcome, thank you.

Answer:Epson SX200 won't use glossy paper

Are you putting in one sheet at a time? If so try putting a small stack of plain paper in underneath. I have a similar problem with my D92 but it works OK if I leave some plain paper in the tray.

Hi allI've got an Epson Stylus Photo R800 colour inkjet printer - had it for about 18 months and got it on the strength of several very positive reviews. Print quality for photos as good as the labs etc etc. I find the quality varies a lot which is a real frustration as I never know when a photo will come out looking good or not. The manual says (surprise!) that I should only use Epson's own ink and paper which I must confess I haven't done as they are much more expensive. But I wonder if that's what's making the difference. Any thoughts?

Answer:Epson ink and paper - better quality printing?

Admittedly it's old-it'll be 8 this year. But I've nearly always used compatibles as they are much cheaper and there is very little difference in quality. Have you run the print head cleaning utility? Also if you don't print often (ie only every 3 weeks or more) I find my ink tends to dry a little.Hope this helps

Back again. *sighs*

I've got a tough one for you this time. Well, maybe.

I need to create a custom paper size for an Epson LQ-590 dotmatrix printer. Currently running Windows XP Pro, and got the latest printer driver from Epson today.

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 suddenly don't like Epson.

Answer:epson picturemate paper error

The various models of Epson printer usually have a method of resetting the machine by simultaneously pressing a combination of buttons whilst the machine is off the and holding down those button switching on and hold till you get the appropriate responseDifferent models different buttons however and it is a workshop trick so does not appear in a user manual,so it is a game of suck it and see.Two more things to considera utility that the manipulated Epson printers when installed- right click the task bar icon and a little panel of options comes up for you to play with.click hereclick hereis a forum and a load of tips and hints for all printers.

MY CL 900 EPSON COLOUR LASER WORKED WITHOUT PROBLEM UP UNTILL A FEW WEEKS AGO WHEN I NEEDED TO REPLACE ALL OF THE TONER CARTRIDGES. DUE TO THE COMBINED COST I OPTED FOR THE BURN AND POUR METHOD, AND RE FILLED THEM. I THEN HAD PROBLEMS WITH THE BLACK TONER AND SO RE PLACED THIS WITH AN ORIGINAL EPSON ONE AND HAD A SHORT PERIOD OF BEING ABLE TO PRINT AGAIN. DIDN'T LAST TO LONG THOUGH! NOW IF I PRINT A PLAIN TEXT SHEET OR ONE WITH MINIMAL USE OF COLOUR IT WILL PRINT AOK, BUT IF I USE THE EPSON TO PRINT A4 PHOTOS OR COLOUR HEAVY PAGES THE PAGES JAM JUST AFTER THE 'FUSER' BEFORE COMING OUT OF THE PRINTER.ROLLERS AND REMOVABLE PARTS HAVE BEEN CHECKED TO SEE IF CLEAN AND REMOVE PAPER SCRAPS.IS THIS PROBLEM DOWN TO USING NON EPSON TONER??JIM

Answer:PAPER JAM PROBLEM WITH EPSON CL 900 LASER

When I read the title of your post I had an idea, it is possible to load paper into a printer the wrong way round believe it or not. The heat of the printer causes the paper to roll - remember it is kept on large rolls before it is vut to A4 et al size - and jam. Since the problem only occurs with colour printing it might be that the extra heat - from more use of the laser - is causing the paper to roll. I would suggest you ether take the paper out and put it in the other way up, or use some different paper.I do not think the toner would be to blame, unless it is a cunning ploy by Epsom to force everyone to use its own toners. Well maybe someone that knows more will be more helpful.
