Epson Stylus Color 980. Sometimes, it prints, sometimes it doesn't. When it doesn't it acts like it is jammed and gives a jam indication with the lights. When I send something to print, it gets ready to go and makes the noise right before the rollers start turning, but it quits and starts flashing the lights.
I have no idea what gets it to work again ... sometimes I shake it around a bit and it will work again, other times it won't.
The printer is not jammed ... there is no paper blockage, and never has a page jammed midway through, so there has never been a situation where I have had to remove a stuck page.
I cannot find an online repair manual, so I can't locate the paper jam assembly to see if it is acting up. If someone can direct me where to look inside of this printer, I would appreciate it.
