Make sure your paper meets the specifications for your product. If paper dust builds up on the rollers, they may lose traction and become unable to feed paper properly. Clean the paper guide. If roll paper does not feed, cut the end straight across and uncurl it by rolling it backward, if necessary.
Select > Paper Setting > paper source > Print Adjustments > Paper Feed Adjust. Select one of the following: Auto: automatically adjusts the paper feed setting (takes 9 to 35 minutes to complete); Epson recommends running this option first.
Handling virtually any media type in roll or cut-sheet up to 17-inch wide, the Epson Stylus Pro 4800 incorporates a high-capacity paper tray capable of handling cut-sheet media up to 17″ x 22″.
Push down the release lever to slightly raise the feeder mechanism and release the paper. Then slowly pull the jammed paper out of the feeder mechanism. (Be careful not to pull too hard; the paper may tear, making it more difficult to remove.) If paper is still jammed inside the mechanism, open the cover to remove it.
A paper feed issue can occur for several reasons, such as dusty or contaminated paper rollers, the condition of the paper in the tray, or even issues with the software.
Print Resolution: up to 5760 x 1440 dpi. 1.44″ color Display; easily print borderless 4″ x 6″ photos; also features 100-sheet paper capacity.
When Roll Auto Cut Off is selected, this button feeds the paper if pressed and held for 3 seconds. Then you can cut the paper using the manual cutter unit. When the printer is drying ink, this button stops the ink drying process and ejects the paper if pressed and held for 3 seconds.
To print on both sides of the paper, select the 2-Sided Printing setting and select the options you want. To print multiple pages on one sheet of paper, or print one image on multiple sheets of paper, select one of the settings in the Multi-Page menu and select the printing options you want.
The ET-2800 and ET-4800 can print on cardstock weighing up to 27 lb (100 g/m2). When printing on cardstock, make sure to select the thick paper option in your print settings. Regards, Kevin -The Epson Team.
Paper jams can occur for a variety of reasons, such as overloading the paper tray, loading different thicknesses of paper in the tray, or using paper that isn`t appropriate for your particular printer. False paper jams can also occur.
Lift the lever and open the ADF cover. Use a soft, lint-free cloth (microfiber is recommended) moistened with a little water to clean the rollers and the interior of the ADF. Caution: Do not use a dry cloth; you may damage the ADF rollers.
Multi-page feed error -> Multiple pages have been fed into the printer at once. Remove and reload the paper, then press the Color button. Multiple pages have been fed into the printer at once.
A paper feed issue can occur for several reasons, such as dusty or contaminated paper rollers, the condition of the paper in the tray, or even issues with the software.
If your printer keeps jamming, you should know that the most common cause of a jam is misalignment of the paper. Paper needs to load in smoothly, completely flush with the tray. Overfilling the tray is a great way to ensure you will be spending some personal time getting to know the inside of a printer.
Small fragments of sticky label material commonly get torn off and stuck within your printer, collecting dust and causing a jam. Shut the printer off, get a flashlight, and try to see inside. Make sure no label fragments have jammed up your printer before proceeding.

Paper feeds straight through without printing on an Epson R2400
ANSWER : I was able to get it to print the internal test page by holding down the sheet paper feed button while turning the machine on — then continuing to hold the sheet paper feed button. It took several attempts, feeding a page straight through, but eventually it caught the sheet and printed. So it may be a timing issue as others have mentioned. It could still mean that the feed rollers are worn out. The back side of the large D-shaped feed roller has visible abrasion on it. The abrasion is difficult to see as the roller does not stay with the flat side exposed.

paper drive wont accept paper
ANSWER : There is probably a small scrap of paper stuck at the left edge of the paper path. The paper hits it and skews to the left. The smaller size bypasses it. You need to shove something stiff, like a piece of file folder, down the paper path and attempt to dislodge it.
