    Hi Guys

    Hope someone can help me with my son's Epson XP700.

    It has been working fine, and suffered a paper jam on the exit which was my fault.

    I carefully pulled through, in the same direction as the normal path, the paper to clear the jam.

    I cannot see any remnants of paper left inside.

    Problem now is that the printer will not lift paper from the tray - and claims out of paper.

    I purchased the Epson service manual but its not very helpful showing you exactly what and how the mechanism works (unlike the R3000 manual which I have too).

    The pick up rollers dont turn, but if I turn them, I can see the clutch moving behind the park position for the cartridges - so I am looking at a possible clutch problem. Quite how that appears from a jam, I dont understand.

    Anyway - any guidance would be appreciated.

    David
