Question about Epson Stylus Photo R260 InkJet Printer

Epson Stylus Photo R260 doesn't complete prints

On almost every print the page is ejected before the print is completed, the printer begins feeding multiple pages through and prints portions of the remaining image on random sheets. This happens when printing anything including documents with text and graphics but mainly when printing photos. It affects most all applications I print from (e.g. Windows Photo Gallery, Paint Shop Pro Photo XI, MS Word). I tried by-passing the spooler and setting to print direct to printer. I got one good print then it began again. I have had limited success with using lowest quality settings with photos but that is less than 50% effective. I am running Vista (32 bit). I tried the printer with a machine running XP and it works flawlessly. I have the latest drivers downloaded from Epson web site. Can you help me sort out the Vista/EPSON incompatibility? Any help is appreciated.

    similar problem under win xp. Every print results in a windows error that says "this document failed to print correctly"even if the print is fine. Many prints, mainly photo/graphics print 1/2 to 2/3 then eject. This happens on paper or cd/dvd.

I have the same problem with my Epson T10. All the papers on the feeder will feed altogether even I am just printing a page. Some technician told me that my printer needs to be aligned on the feeder mechanical part.

Make sure that you have the correct paper size set in your printer settings. Incorrect size would cause the problem you describe.

Paper not feeding for epson nx400


Check the following:


  • If paper doesn't feed, remove it from the sheet feeder. Reload it against the right side, behind the tab, then press in the tab on the edge guide and slide it against the paper. Make sure the paper is not above the arrow mark inside the edge guide.

  • If multiple pages feed at once, remove the paper from the sheet feeder, fan the edges to separate the sheets, then reload it.

  • If the paper doesn't eject fully, you may have set the wrong paper size. Press the c:\users\home\appdata\local\temp\msohtmlclip1\01\clip_image001.gif Stop button, then open the scanner and remove the paper. Select the correct paper size when you reprint.

  • If it's wrinkled when it ejects, the paper may be damp or too thin. Load new paper.

  • Make sure you use new, smooth, high-quality paper, that is not curled, creased, old, or too thin. Make sure to load it printable side up.

  • Do not load paper with holes punched in it for insertion in a binder.

  • Make sure you load only up to the recommended number of sheets. If you're printing on both sides of the paper, try loading fewer sheets.

If the paper jams, do the following:

1. Gently pull any jammed paper out from the output tray or sheet feeder.

2. To eject the jammed paper, try turning the Epson Stylus NX400 off and then back on.

If that doesn't work and paper is stuck inside, turn off the Epson Stylus NX400. Open the scanner, remove the jammed paper and torn pieces, close the scanner, and turn the Epson Stylus NX400 back on.

We try to print, we see the file in the print cue - it goes from 0 to 1, then it oes back to 0 as if the file had been sent to the printer. However, nothing happens at the printer.


Hi,
can you print a test page from the Epson printer management tool? Can you see the ink levels from the Epson tool? If you can do both, check that you aren't sending the print job to:
a. another local or network printer
b. a pdf creator (acrobat reader type file)
c. OneNote (MS Office tool)
Depending on what system your using for example WinXP or Vista, go to Start/Control Panel/Printers and see what printer is set a the Default. Default will usually shown by a printer with a Green Tick. Make sure your Epson R260 is set to be the Default printer. Right click the R260 and set it to Default Printer.
Ask some more questions of me if needed.
Cheers,
Steve
