Question about Epson Stylus Photo R1800 InkJet Printer
I have a problem with my r1800,
The automatic sheet feeder is not able to feed the paper into the printer. It take the paper in and then ejects the paper. May be after 50 tries it is able to feed the paper correctly. I tried cleaning the '****** Roller' and vaccum cleaning the feeding path but it didn't help at all. Now on top of that when I get lucky and am able to feed on sheet of paper when I send a print job to the printer, both red LEDs keep flashing and I receive a 'general error' which advises me to cancel all print jobs, switch off the printer and take out any foreign object from the printer. I inspected the open areas carefully and I'm 100% sure there is no foreign object (i.e. paper debris) inside. Since I live in Iran and there's no official Epson service centre here, I managed to find the service manual and cleaned the waste ink pads. I also tried to clean the accessible sensors too "carefully of course" ! I didn't have the guts to open the sheet feeder to clean its sensor too, since it requires a dangerously big amount of disassembly. However I tried to wash it with a contact cleaner spray from the top. I also noticed that the sealing rubbers on the top of ink purging system are full of ink residue and I carefully opened that part and washed it with alcohol. This is my second problem: I disconnected 4 thin tubes that were connected to the sealing rubbers and now that I want to put them back I cannot remember in which sequence they were connected. I searched in the service manual, but it seems that the "inking system assemly" is a closed part sold as a whole so there's no mentioning of sealing rubbers and tubes. So here I am, hesitated to reassemble the printer without being sure that I have connected the tubes in the right order... Any suggestions for these problems? :)

Those generic refills are not worth i, plus they may void the warranty. Try removing them and cleaning the little circuit board sensor. Make sure leaked ink hasnt covered them.

If the paper jams, do
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.
