Question about Epson Stylus Photo R220 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Epson R220 paper feed.

I receive the flashing red jam light as soon as feed rollers start to feed paper into printer. All feed operation stops as soon as the feed fault is triggered. Paper never even starts into printer. I hhave owned this printer longer than the warranty period but have never used it for page printing. It was originally purchased for CD printing which is a pain at best. Own three other various brand printers and was going to use this on an incidental basis. As stated earlier, the paper never gets past the primary feed rollers therefore there is no jam and there is nothing jammed inside the printer from a past problem. The paper feed button will feed a page thru maybe one time out of 10 attempts, each of which has the same paper jam fault. If prudence says throw the thing in the trash, that is what I will do; however took a shot that you might have some magic idea that I haven't tried.
Thank you.

    I'm having the same problem with my Epson Stylus Photo R220. We've had it for about three years and, although it goes through ink faster than I'd like, it has been working fine up until now. All of a sudden it will not grab the paper, even though it sounds as though it is trying to. The message I get is "Paper out or not loaded correctly." I sure would like to solve this.

I hope this will help you :)

* RED paper light flashes- Paper is jammed in the printer. Press the paper button to eject the jammed paper. If the light is still flashing , open the cover and remove all paper, including any jammed or torn pieces. Then reload paper and press the paper button to continue printing.
* RED Ink Light Flashes - One or more cartridges are low on ink. Check the message that appears on your screen to determine which cartridge is low, or follow the instructions in " Checking the Ink Supply". Make sure you have a replacement cartridge.

My epson R220 is feeding the paper in on the right side only.


The roller pin on the left side is possibly jammed. Try to check it, and free it anyway you can. Could be paper jamming it, also.

Blinking both the ink botton ligths and the botton paper


I just today threw away my R220. If your 2 red lights are going and the power light is off, then your printer has died. It just happened to me. It sucks, but there is no way to fix it.
