Question about Epson Stylus Photo R200 InkJet Printer
I've tried to load smaller paper into the printer, but only get a partial print of a part of the full size image. When I reduce the image size in Photoshop and use a sheet of 8.5 x 11 I get the size I want, but if I use the smaller paper, I get about one fourth of a full size-image. This is a problem of both the computer (iMac, 2002) and the R200 printer.
So, whass'p widdat?
There are settings that should allow you to specify the page size usually in the printer program that is installed on your computer as well as if you were using your printer as a stand alone device ,it will not be a problem with your Mac or printer but perhaps the instruction menu not been user friendly , I suggest you look at your printer settings in trouble shooting under paper loading etc or paper size as even the very cheap printers allow for smaller paper sizes even envelopes .You might try the print preview which should let make changes if need be .

SOURCE: R1800 printer problem
I fixed the problem, the PW and Ink Mark sensors needed cleaning. I was able to access and remove both sensors after removing the printer housing, and moving the print head to the far left. There's enough space to unscrew the cover for the sensors, and unplug them with needle nose pliers and a couple fingers, clean them both, dry them, re-install, etc.. all is well now after some re-alignment procedures with the epson factory service program.

Okay.. 1st off I'm probably going to the jumped on for this... But.. I fix and/or make them work printers, computers and all sorts of electronic gear. For a living... Yes .. the manufacturer will tell you not to use alcohol to clean the rollers. but it does work. Windex (ammonia) will clean the heads at times. I also use Scotch brite pads to clean the pickup rollers. We get them in about 8x10 inch pads.
I will spay some alcohol on the end where the pick up roller is. Place the pad in normal paper tray. Most printers have a cam shaped one on the right, left or in the middle. That gets the paper moving. The pad is way to thick to actually move and will cause a jam indication on the printer. But what happens is the roller will slip on the pad and clean itself. Pretend you cleared the jam a couple of times and the printer will try to pick up the 'paper' and jam again. A couple of these and the pick up roller (cam shaped) will usually be good to go. The other option (the best) is to buy a new pickup roller for the printer. But cleaning will work for the short term. What happens on most printers is the roller gets very smooth from normal use and then won't pick up the paper for the rest of the trip through the printer. I have used a piece of fine grade sand paper, but you have to hold it so it won't go through the printer and it makes a gritty mess... Once I orderd a 'printer cleaner' from HP and all it was, was a couple of pieces of scotch brite glued to a fancy holder to match the spacing of the rollers. That's when I started using sheets of the stuff. Just pretend they are a piece of printer paper. In the worst case I have used belt dressing and then alcohol to clean most of it off. Alcohol has a tendency to soften the rubber on the pickup roller. That's why the company says don't use it. But you can by rubber rejuvenator that is mainly alcohol.. Go figure.........

theres a guide on how to manually reset the counter here
unless you replace or clean the waste pad from here on in regard your printer as a ticking ink bomb. put it on a tray with a lip just incase of an ink overflow and dont put it on the carpet.
