Yes it can probably be fixed. I hope you poked your friend in the eye for giving you such a headache though. You will need to dismantle the machine and remove the Auto Sheet Feeder (ASF) Once removed, check there is no bits of paper stuck inside. Then turn the pick up mechanisme by hand through a couple of revolutions to re synch everything. Also check the paper sensor is still intact - if not you can construct a new one from a piece of plastic or if the old one is still present, just glue it back together. You can download a service manual to hep you out with the dismantling from either:

This seems like you have two separate errors.

For the loss of ink problem, see my previous posts about under head cleaning. This should get you going again, but if not, there is another known issue which causes these machines to stoip printing. This problem stems from a manufacturing "feature" which results in a broken pipe. To get a fix for this you should contact and ask about there countermeasure for loss of ink in the Photo R series

The second error with the flashing lights depends on the sequence in which they flash. If the power light is off and the Ink and Paper lights flash half second on and half second off but alternating, then you have a maintenance request. This is easy to sort with yet another kit from The Service Manual Shop (R220 rescue kit)

If the sequence is Power light off but ink and paper flashing simultaneously then you have a fatal error. These are somewhat harder to attempt to fix and may require specialist knowledge and big parts that put the machine beyond economical repair.

Having said that, it can be worth taking the machine apart and removing the ASF assembly then reassembling as sometimes the feed mechanism ties itself in a knot and throws up a scary error.

Hope this helps a little

If you are printing from your computer, in the print options select how many copies you would like to make in the preferences.

SOURCE: Epson CX 4300 printing problem

This can happen to cartridges with attached print heads. All cartridges are weighed and tested before leaving the factory so lack of ink isn't the problem. It usually has to do with the print head of the cartridge not having any ink to feed it. This happens because cartridges are kept flat or upside down for weeks or months before being used and the ink settles away from the print head. The easiest remedy is to open the box and stand the cartridge upright for a few minutes before using. Then get a damp paper towel, fold it into quarters and sit the cartridge print head down onto it. Hold the cartridge down to the damp paper towel for three minutes. This will help pull the ink out of the print heads, priming them and getting them ready to print. Finally, install the cartridge into your printer and print a few test pages.

Found this on the Web. If you find helpful, pls rate me.
Here is the link for all the discussions regarding this error.

Welcome to Apple Discussions

Go to: Apple > System Preferences > Print & Fax > Print and reselect your printer in the Default printer: box near the bottom of the panel. Then next in the same Print & Fax preference panel, select Open Print Queue: and Delete all the Jobs in the Status box and try printing something again.

have no idea exactly what that error means, but now I suspect that when you "Trashed the EPSON folder in HD\Library\Printers\Epson" you trashed an important part of the OS X and not the installed Epson software.

If you have a backup Time Machine, a backup clone or that file is still in the trash you need to restore it "HD/Library/Printers/Epson/InkjetPrinters2 or whatever" back to the correct location, run Repair Permissions and hope that fixes it. If not then backup all your files, because it seems like you may have to completely reinstall the OS X....

Good Luck.....

Epson 835 printing only the top of the page being copyed

1. In Internet Explorer, try going to : 'File', 'Page setup' and check off the box for 'Print Background Colors and images'.
If does not work, go to:
2. In Internet Explorer go to 'Tools', 'Internet Options', go to 'Advanced' tab then go scroll down to 'Printing' and make sure box is checked for 'Print Background Color and images'.
3. If still not working, advise, you may need to take your ink out and use a syringe and mineral spirits to clean the heads of your printer (lots of times these get clogged).
4. All else fails, you can set your printer back to default settings, can find out how to do that over the internet.
One of these will fix your problem.

R320 printer won't print on thick photo paper anymore. Regular copy paper works fine. Are there rollers or sensors that I can get to so I can clean and check? Is there a fix for this problem?

  • Make sure that the paper meets paper specifications of the product.
  • Spray compressed in air.
  • If it is a non-Epson brand paper, try Epson paper
  • Make sure that settings are setup properly, Some Epson products have a Thick paper and envelopes or Thick paper to allow it accommodate thick media

Printer printing more then what is needed

while uninstalling the epson driver it will ask you for delete the setting or do you want to keep it. if you select keep it, it will happen how many times you install the driver. Check the printer settings in printers and faxes window, select printer go to printing preferences, page layout and check whether you give no. of copies to 2 there.
