Paper fee picks multiple pages. Normal paper. Have tried all the different platen gaps. Help!

Epson printers use a set of rubber rollers to pick up the paper. Some paper can leave a slick deposit on the rollers, causing mis-feed. I spray some cardstock lightly with alcohol, and run it through several times (use the paper feed button) to clean that off.

Also, check the paper itself, if the sheets stick together, "fan" them before putting them in the printer.

Epson stylus c88 red ink prints yellow

print a check of the nozzles, and check what colour (magenta) is not working. If the cleaning part does not help, perhaps you should put a new cartridge in, or clean again.

Epson Stylus Photo R800 not printing certain color

You may have blocked print head nozzles.
Try the printer maintenance to clear the printer nozzles.
After several deep cleaning attempts and there is no improvements in the print then a new print head is required.
A new print head maybe expensive and it maybe more cost effective to purchase a new printer.

Can I remove & clean the print head on an Epson printer?

i've tried to remove it from the sliders and to have it soaked in alcohol for about 10 hours without any luck. It is too much work without any guarantee. I suggest to junk it and get a new one (if possible with heads on the cartridges so they are replaced with each refill)

Epson Stylus C86 smearing

Your printer has ink build up inside it. This comes from cleaning cartridges and builds-up steadily over time. Remove top cover. Wet a cotton swab with isopropyl alcohol (available at drug stores) and clean the inside. use a cotton bud where the swab gets entangled.

Epson rx560 printer no yellow

I thru out an epson ink jet and never bought one again. I did not use it that much and the ink dried in the head and it would not clear out.
I toke it apart and soaked it is almost all the solvents from dish detergent lye for denatured alcohol to napa tested it each time and nota so save the frustration buy a new head or a printer instead. where anytime you place new ink the heads are changed too.

Yellow ink does not come out.

Its possible that your printer is fooled to think that the yellow ink level is lower than it really is. not uncommon. Have you changed the different carts on different occasions? You should try resetting the printer. I can tell you that the stylus 500 is reset by turning off, then back on while holding down the Load/Eject button, can't say if it will do the trick on your r300. BTW - epson printers do not like refills or generic - they will clog. I ran across the following cleaning method on the web, it might help you: "Follow this procedure AT YOUR OWN RISK for all I know I may have damaged my printer irreparably, but it does not appear so.) With the power off I manually moved the print heads to the left exposing the pad under the color head. I used several cotton swabs to soak up as much old ink from this pad as I could. I then liberally applied rubbing alcohol to the pad with a cotton swab. About three swabs worth, saturating the pad. I manually returned the print head to *exactly* the same position it was originally in. I turned on the power. This activated the cleaning sequence. (You might also want to press the color head cleaning button to make sure that at least one cleaning cycle runs with the alcohol on the pad.) I turned off the power. Then, while holding down the color cleaning button, I turned the power back on. This activates the self test. By the time the printing of the second sheet of the test was half way completed I had all my colors back."
