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.

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.

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.
