Espon RX500 feeds intermidantly

Hi
You seem to be well versed in epsons so I am wondering if you can help?

I have a rx500 but it seems to feed intermidantly. One day it will feed immediately, then next day I have to tweak, nudge, jiggle, etc the paper to try to get it to pick up. It has been like this since out of the box.

I have 30-40 sheets of 20lb in and it is to the right, with the guide keeping it in place. I can hear something moving and trying to pick up paper, but it does not work.

Very frusterating :(

    My RX500 is showing a "page loading error" consistently.
    It was working fine until now that I had to install a new printer driver since my last hard drive crashed. Any idea ?

And i sense that you're familiar with the product too.
not feeding the paper right at random, tried a couple or more paper, diff types of paper, made sure paper is not crumpled.
worth trying, clean the visible part of the paper grabbing mech - look straight down at the paper loading area.
check warranty and go for it else - staight answer get a new one - internal paper feed mechanizm aint working as how it is designed.

    it's the internal printer hardware, what you can try is cleaning the "visible" part in the paper loading bay (the one that has rubber on it) with alchohol.

You do not actually need Smart panel to use the scanner. Epson scan will allow you to scan and save to the PC etc. To install the printer and scanner download and install Epson Scan and Driver from the following page. http://esupport.epson-europe.com/ProductHome.aspx?lng=en-GB&data=SF8cgjsfr7MDXMcEkJfQFa89pC7QCDCv&tc=6#7

Scanner error


Press the On button to turn off the Stylus Photo RX500. Unlock the transportation lock. Make sure that all packaging materials have been removed. Turn on your Stylus Photo RX500 again. If the error message still appears, call Epson so they can replace your printer.
Goodluck.

Epson RX500, Paper Jam - printing couldn't start


Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button, applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this, is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time. Worth a try. I have fixed a number of printers this way saving costly repairs. Bud

Epson RX520 dont print the full picture


It's a problem with the paper not feeding straight. The printer will make a pass & sense the width of the paper & print accordingly. If it feeds in crooked then it sees it as being narrow & only prints to that width. Happens more easily with heavy photo paper.

Apply a bit of pressure to the paper as it feeds & it's happy days.
