Question about Epson Stylus 1400 InkJet Photo Printer

2 Answers

Epson 1400 simply pulls blank paper through when I try to print

I have had this issue for a while, and I remember it went away a couple of times, but it's back for good. I have an Epson Stylus Photo 1400 and Every time I try to print here's what happens: the print head runs across the track to the left (I think that's normal), then the printer grabs the paper, like it's supposed to, but then it just feeds it through without even trying to print anything! On the screen it says the peper is misplaced and/or close the CD/DVD tray, but the paper IS there and the CD tray is in the Closed position.

All my cartridges are nearly full. This is my second replacement already. Epson is losing my trust quickly. Any ideas what might be causing this problem?

I've had the same problem. Drives ya nuts. Found that error said dvd/vcr release something or other on the epson print monitor. In any case, I found that if the front door isn't securely closed. (the front door you open to insert the dvd thingie, the paper will just feed or not feed at all. Once the door is closed on the front, the feed works fine again.

It sounds a lot like a soiled or broken sensor...

Given that this sounds like it's a refurbished, repaired or replacement model I'd give Epson an earful and get them to sort it.

Why does my epson 1400 keep loading paper straight threw instead of printing?


I have had this problem several times. The culprit is the feed wheel which can get covered with paper dust and it loses it "bite". Epson sells cleaning sheets that are tacky and when run through the printer remove this "dust". I have also resorted to taking a piece of scotch tape and carefully sticking it to the rubber take-up wheel and then gently removing it to pull the paper dust off with the sticky tape. Another problem can be because of not setting the paper type correctly. Check to make sure that the paper type set for the printer is the same as the paper you are feeding.

Epson photo 1400 ink & paper lights keep flashing after I print. Then I have to shut printer off and re-start.


I read another epson thread somewhere and it said this:

"All you need to do is run the printer a few times with no paper. While it's "printing", use a soft cloth (I used a monitor cleaning cloth) and your index finger to clean the rubber wheel that pulls the paper through. The wheel is on the right side in the area where you feed the paper.

After hours of struggling with this tonight, it is now working perfectly. Guess I'm going to have to invest in a stash of monitor cloths..."

Hope it helps...

Hi,

Your problems states that photos are being blank when trying to print it.
Please try these tips.

  • Make sure your printer is selected in the Print window or in the Macintosh Page Setup and Print windows.
  • The print head nozzles may need cleaning.
  • Make sure your printer software settings are set for the paper size you're using.

Plus,i also wanted to know if you can print ordinary documents or print a test page.

Hope this helps.

Thanks,

Hi there, I would simply pull the ink cartridges out completely and then put them back in. It should act as if you are putting in new cartridges and go through the install process again. I hope this works for you!

When i print, there are horizontal lines across the page


Have you really recently run the cleaning utility a couple times? If so,it leaves black ink on the rollers that pull the paper through the printer.You can use a Q-Tip (or 3) and rubbing alcohol to clean the ink off.

I have an Epson C88 and when I tried to print an envelope it went partway in and got stuck. It was not far enough in that I could pull it on through so pulled it back. Now the ink light and the paper jam...


while you pulled the envelop away did the envelop come out intact, or did it get damaged, if it was not damaged, then just restart the printer, you issue should be fixed.

If the envelop was damaged its likely that there is a paper piece stuck iside, which is tough to remove if you are not an expert. in such scenarion seek professional help
