How to Clear a Paper Jam on an Epson Inkjet Printer


Clearing up a paper jam on an Epson inkjet printer is not difficult. Follow these steps to clean up the jammed paper and get your printer running smoothly again.

Things You'll Need

  • Epson inkjet printer
  • Clear any loose paper from the paper tray. This will help you locate the jam. You will find it either in front, near the paper tray, or in the rear.

  • To clear a paper jam near the paper tray, grip the paper and pull it firmly but gently from the printer. If you find a stack of papers jammed, grab from the middle of the stack and pull.

  • For a rear jam, remove the back of the printer. When you find a free edge on the paper, grip it firmly and pull it out.

  • Replace the back cover. Press the "Resume" button or turn off the printer, and then turn it back on. Your settings should reset.

  • Try printing another document.

Tips & Warnings

  • Make sure the ink cartridges can move freely before you fix the jam.
  • Be firm, but not so rough that you rip the paper.
