hi all ive got a epson c86 not used it much but when i come too print something i always get the paper jamming . yet i make sure its all in line etc yet when it starts printing it seems too jam all the time ...any ideas plz . thx. :O)
Have you checked to see that no small objects have fallen into the printer, a friend with the same model printer had a tooth pick fall in, and worked its way down to the rollers causing the same problem. It was a bit hard to find.
cheers mate solved thatwas the paper crinkled a bit well i think its that lol workin ok now. Problem is now ive just renewed me ink with 4 new compatibles but its only printing out now in black ? any ideas .all the cartridges r in correct.ive cleaned nozzles etc. . thx all .:O)
There's a shedload of posts about head cleaning available in the Helproom forum.... To anyone who has religiously followed that advice and still finds no joy, the whole thing can recover by doing nothing at all until tomorrow.... Hopefully by morning all the frantic acivity is old news, and ink has displaced the host of tiny air bubles in the various pathways.

Ink delivery If head cleaning [in the regular manner] does not resolve- and as this is is a light use printer then dried ink in head is possinlity so try this. Remoce the cartrdiges and find a drinking straw or piece of cable insulation that will fit snugly ove the feed spikes in the cartridge chamber, intro duce some distilled water with a splash of spirit [vodka]and gently suck/blow bach and fort - a syring or a small squeezy bottle would be a good idea. then leave over night. Put that carts in next morning then give it a go.
