Epson WF-2530 printer always 'paper out' when I try to print

    Every time I try to print anything, my WF-2530 feeds a sheet through and reports paper out. The unit has seen little use and has never had a paper jam. I have carefully loaded only a few sheets of regular 20 lb paper and it does it every time. I have done the same with some Kodak photo paper for inkjet and gotten the same results. It simply does not detect that there is paper loaded.

    I have tried resetting the unit, powering off then on, disconnecting and reconnecting the power cord. Nothing causes it to recognize that paper is loaded after it feeds the first sheet through. Press the 'OK' button and it will feed another sheet and continue to report 'paper out'.

    I don't want to replace such a lightly used printer. If I can correct whatever is wrong with the paper sensor it would be a blessing. Help!

    I have the exact problem. I found a workaround (not a fix) so that I can still use my printer. The workaround is press the Stop/Reset button to cancel the print job. Then turn off the printer for 10 minutes, then turn it back on. Then print again. Those steps work for me, but the 10 minute wait for every failed instance like this makes a simple print job takes quite a while. But I'm like you, I don't want to replace a working printer with a slight problem. I have the same printer model.

    There may be something in the back of the feed tray like a pencil that is partially jamming the feed.
