Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority.
Sorry to hear you’re having trouble.
Have you used the epson previously, or is this the first time setup?
But this new printer has worked previously, correct?
Okay thank you for confirming. Just wanted to make sure it worked before, as this can be caused by packing materials on new machines.
The current jam error simply denotes an internal fault. That can be caused by anything from debris/obstruction (paper jam, bent/damaged rails, out of place purge assembly/wiper, or dirty/dislocated encoder strip) to an actual hardware defect (bad sensor or control board, faulty carriage drive motor/gear/belt, bad printhead/carriage pcb).
What we can try here are some cleaning and reset steps.First, open up the printer, and check for any internal debris such as scraps of paper, paperclip or staple, etc. Check if you’re able to move the carriage manually, or if it moves on its own when lifting the lid. If it does move, you can proceed with cleaning by blowing out the Inside compartment with compressed air and checking carefully on both sides for any obstructions. Next remove all of the ink cartridges, then clean the metal electrical contacts on the back, as well as where they mate up inside the printer, using qtips and rubbing alcohol. Dry well, then reseat the cartridges. Then wipe down the encoder strip, which is a clear plastic strip running the width of the printer, that sits just slightly above and behind the carriage.
Then reset the machine:unplug power at the wall outletwait 5 minutespress and hold the power/on button for 60+ secondskeep holding while plugging back in, and for another 60 seconds after, then release
Let me know the results, and I’ll advise further if needed.
That pertains to a carriage jam or fault with the absorber system.
It basically means that the carriage/printhead assembly is not able to move freely, check if there is something stuck under/beside it.If no change, then there is an internal fault here, and the next step would be to return the printer to the retailer if it is within their return period and exchange it for a new one. If past their return policy, I can give you the number to file a warranty claim to have it replaced by epson.
If it is less than 30 days old though any store should take it back which is really the simplest option. If you can, I'd suggest asking for your money back, and buying a different model. For only a little bit more, you can get a much more capable model that is better built as well.
If looking for a replacement, I’d recommend any of the Epson workforce series printers. They tend to be very reliable, are easy to set up and use, have good print quality, and reasonably priced ink. Example: http://amzn.to/1F4fCYC
