I've got an Epson SX235W that's 4 years old and working well however when it comes to printing a long letter or multiple 'follow-on' pages it just prints the first page it then comes up with "Multiple pages have been inserted into the product, remove jammed pages ans press the 'copy' button". There are NO jammed sheets and no multiple ones fed into the 'feed'. I press the 'go' button as suggested but the outcome is the same. What does 'The Panel' think ?.

Check for either / or both, updated firmware and drivers would be my first port of call.. Has it started behaving like this since, an operating system update?

If no multiple sheets are being fed at once, I'd be squirting an air duster into the paper intake and pick up area. It could be paper dust blocking a paper path sensor. Most of these sensors are just a little flag which breaks or makes an infrared beam as the paper passes. If anything stops the flag from being knocked as the paper passes or anything blocks the beam, it will call a paper path error.

Have a good look in there with a torch is there a small remnant of an old paper jam still stuck in the paper path somewhere? It might be "tweezers" time.

Yeah it's probably a sensor problem, paper dust is quite fine and can coat everything.

As a workaround you could choose which page to print and print them off separately, while you find some air cleaner to give it a blast with.

I bought one of those 'Duster Sprays' today, had a look down the paper feed slot on my SX235W, can't see any obvious censors to aim at but I'll give the whole thing a good 'blasting' in the morning.
