I have seen a bad cartridge give a paper jam error so take out the cartridges and see if the paper jam message goes away. otherwise it could be the paper jam sensor is blocked or the master chip in the printer which checks out the whole system. if the master chip is blown, you can get any random error like paper jam, cover open, etc. Here are some good articles on epson printers

Try cleaning the paper sensor and rollers The sensor can be located by opening the front cover where the ink cartridges are. While looking inside just to the right of center manually feed a piece of paper like the printer does automatically. You should see a thin black lever move up and down as you push the paper in and pull it out repeatedly. This is the paper jam sensor. ANY foreign object in the way of this sensor will cause a three orange light flash indicating a paper jam. Very hard to find without a flashlight. Another good idea would be to blow out the printer using a can of compressed air. Clean the two Rollers Lightly dampen your lint-free cloth with water or alcohol. Squeeze it out to ensure that it's not too wet. Hold the cloth in one hand and press it lightly against the first roller. With your other hand, gently rotate the roller until you have cleaned it all the way around. Be extremely careful. Do not use too much pressure. You might have to run it through a few times to remove all of the residue
