What sort of paper are you using? What sort of volume has the machine done? Have you ever had a jam and pulled the paper back out through the auto sheet feeder instead of feeding it through the exit rollers?

    You need to replace the feed tyre (feed roller) on the ASF. Once the rubber gets worn down, the machine looses the ability to apply enough pressure on the paper to feed is successfully.

Paper feed not working on Epson r300


If the paperfeed works when you "help" it a little, most likely the feed rollers simply need cleaning. We often suggest taking a little alcohol and spraying it onto some paper, and running it through several times, then running clean/dry paper through to finish. If the printer isn't even trying to load paper, possibly the paper sensor is blocked with dust, and blowing the insides of the printer may help.

Epson R300


First of all turn the printer off & disconnect all of the cables. Turn it over and give it a shake, you'll be amazed at what gets inside the feed hopper. Next try a stiff piece of A4 card (the backing from an A4 notepad for instance), feed the card into the paper feed and push it through quite hard to overcome the spring resistence. Once it has started to go through open the lid and check if it has pushed anything through the rollers. Feed the card all the way through the mech and pull out of the front. Hopefully the card will have cleared the paper path of any objects and reseated the sensors.
Good luck.

Epson R300 printing only in top left corner of page


Change the paper settings in the driver when you go to print. If you have it set to 10x15 it will only print a 10x15 patch in the corner.

Go to START, PRINTERS AND FAXES then right click on R300 and select PROPERTIES. Click PRINTING PREFERENCES and set the correct paper properties. Click OK all the way to desk top and the settings will be saved.

On the printer panel press ADVANCED, scroll down 3 times to PAPER SIZE and press OK. Select A4 and press OK.

Epson Stylus CX4600 pulling paper in crooked


Hi, please check if there is a paper jam or any obstruction inside that printer. Check also the platen lever or the left edge guide, make sure that paper is loaded correctly. Try printing again. If issue still present. Your printer needs to be send to service center.
