Question about Epson Stylus Photo R2400 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Paper sent through without printing

I have been printing with Moab Entrada 300 gsm paper. All of a sudden the Epson Sylus Photo R2400 doesn't recognize the paper and when I try to print the paper simply goes through the printer and the red light stays on and the green light is blinking. This doesn't happen with any other paper and only recently with the Moab paper. Has anyone else experienced this problem or know how to resolve it?

Re: paper sent through without printing

You should try cleaning the pick up roller. It may be your paper has quite a dusty surface and this will cling to the pick up roller making it less grippy. When the paper is fed it may not make the first sensor in the expected time and thus creates the error. Get a service manual to show you how to get a t the pick up roiller so you can remove and clean it. You can get Platen Cleaner from many web sites and it is specifically formulated to regain friction os such rollers. Try either: or for a service manual

I have the same problem, my printer has been sitting unused for over a year now because I cannot afford to keep getting it serviced just to make 3 prints before it malfunctions again. I beleive it is paper dust getting on a sensor somewhere - I wish I knew how to service the printer myself! So if a solution is given to you I will be very interested in it!

How do i print labels using epson r2400 photo printer?

If you are using the Avery template, make sure you change the page setup settings from Manual Front (default) to Default Tray (sheet). Then when it tries to fix the layout, select ignore (on Wrd 2007 anyway). Then select Photo / Glossy paper and hopefully away you go.

Epson stylus k3 r2400

Hi Lisa
The R2400 has the choice of two black inks, MK and PK. One is for Matt printing, the other (called photo black) is for gloss.
If the printer has the matt cartridge fitted it only allows suitable options, including paper choice, to be selected. If you change the black cartridge from the MK to the PK one, you should then have the choice of gloss paper.
