Hello,

After you replaced the cartridge did you try to print and then the jam happened?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I have tried to print multiple times, cleared the queue, turned the printer off then back on again, turned it off and unplugged it then plugged it back in again and turned it on again (clearing the queue between each attempted print or two).

Is there a red error light flashing on the printer?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
the red light next to the ink drop flashes in time with the green light next to the On/Off button.Do you need access to the PC to fix this? (an add showed up)
Technician: JACUSTOMER-6ht2f3gs-,

No I do not need access to the PC at this time. Seeing that you have pressed the color button to no avail, have you checked the sheet feeder were the paper feed into the unit? If there is no sign of a jam in there, the paper might be stuck in the printer itself.

No it has a very short run. The paper sets above and behind the printer then feeds straight through to the front. If you want a second side you have to send it through again blank face up. I have probably ejected 20 sheets of paper through the unit. The pathway is clear. For some reason it does not recognize the sheet as positioned properly. It sucks in a blank page about an inch then indicates a paper jam, I eject that sheet (it slides through the path without catching) but the paper jam error notice on the monitor and flashing lights do not clear. I have ejected up to 5 sheets alternating between the color button on the unit and the Eject button showingon the monitor.

What type of cartridge did you replace the old one with? In addition, are you using a different thickness of paper or different size?

Ask Your Own Printers Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Epson cartridge and the same paper I have been using a couple of months. The stack of blank sheets had become thin so I added another quarter inch of sheets to the unit but that was AFTER the problem started. I do not print a lot of things. There has probably less than 1000 pages on the unit.
Technician: JACUSTOMER-6ht2f3gs-,

This might sound odd: but did you fan through the paper before loading it into the printer? There sometimes is static in between the papers that can cause a double up which could potentially cause a paper jam.

I have found a troubleshooting support document that may assist in this issue:

https://files.support.epson.com/htmldocs/pro48u/pro48urf/trble_1.htm

It is sometimes tricky to diagnose without physically being at the printer. Please let me know if any of these options work.

I read through the trouble shooter. For what ever reason, it did was not happy to print a "picture" from a jpg but it did print the same document saved as a pdf (????) It might have had something to do with the type of paper it wanted for a picture.
Technician: JACUSTOMER-6ht2f3gs-,

Did it specifically ask you for a different paper for a pdf?
