I press the button second from right the printer then feeds through another two pieces and again the message comes up media not loaded correctly. How do I get round this very annoying problem.
cheers

Okay.. 1st off I'm probably going to the jumped on for this... But.. I fix and/or make them work printers, computers and all sorts of electronic gear. For a living... Yes .. the manufacturer will tell you not to use alcohol to clean the rollers. but it does work. Windex (ammonia) will clean the heads at times. I also use Scotch brite pads to clean the pickup rollers. We get them in about 8x10 inch pads.
I will spay some alcohol on the end where the pick up roller is. Place the pad in normal paper tray. Most printers have a cam shaped one on the right, left or in the middle. That gets the paper moving. The pad is way to thick to actually move and will cause a jam indication on the printer. But what happens is the roller will slip on the pad and clean itself. Pretend you cleared the jam a couple of times and the printer will try to pick up the 'paper' and jam again. A couple of these and the pick up roller (cam shaped) will usually be good to go. The other option (the best) is to buy a new pickup roller for the printer. But cleaning will work for the short term. What happens on most printers is the roller gets very smooth from normal use and then won't pick up the paper for the rest of the trip through the printer. I have used a piece of fine grade sand paper, but you have to hold it so it won't go through the printer and it makes a gritty mess... Once I orderd a 'printer cleaner' from HP and all it was, was a couple of pieces of scotch brite glued to a fancy holder to match the spacing of the rollers. That's when I started using sheets of the stuff. Just pretend they are a piece of printer paper. In the worst case I have used belt dressing and then alcohol to clean most of it off. Alcohol has a tendency to soften the rubber on the pickup roller. That's why the company says don't use it. But you can by rubber rejuvenator that is mainly alcohol.. Go figure.........

I suspect this will be a tricky one! I am printing from a new iMac / CS5 setup. I am using OCP inks and Ilford paper. I am printing the same images to both machines. The print settings are identical....


hi Anthony, i spent a month trying to figure out a similar problem with an epson 2200. Now, the printers are different but not that much, and, the changes in paper and ink gave me "some" color issues but not as bad as what i was getting. your problem seems very similar. i run a PC so this is similar but not exactly the same. what i found was that a Magenta/ violet cast was due to double profiling. I could verify that i had the correct settings but i was wrong! I print from CS3 into the epson 2200. What i found was there is an error(no one is talking about) in the printer driver. You cannot shut off the color management completely! Assume this scenario, you are printing with CS3 applying your profile in CS3. Make the settings in CS3 as normal, then you are directed to the printer settings. Go to the print driver and make the selections for ICM Color, and select "no color". The KEY is to make sure you do this step LAST , make sure to click on the "apply" button, then "Close". Once you make the selection of "No Color" do NOT click on anything else. If you change screens in the print driver once you select "no color mgmt" the driver CHANGES your settings. ANY settings in the other pages in the print driver cause the driver to apply a printer profile, this effectively "double profiles" your photo print causing the magenta cast. None of this should happen if the driver was created correctly but there it is! It took a long time to test and verify but it is as i stated. Once i got it sorted out my photos are excellent ALL the time. Good luck, worm1855.

The feed indicator light and ink light flash alternately (back and forth). the R800 won't print, allow cartridge tray to move, or feed paper.


Lights flashing alternately means that your printer's waste ink pad is saturated. It needs to be replaced and reset the counter. To reset the waste ink pad counter you will need a resetting program. You may download it by going to this link:

I have an Epson R1800 and when I load Roll 13X19 matte media and try to print I either get a "jammed media" message or the printer trys to print without feeding the media.


I had a similar problem trying to print epson pro canvas. I finally learned the "trick". First I generally cut an appropriately sized pice of canvas from the roll. Then I attach a HEADER. This is dome by cutting a piece of 13" wide photo paper in a three inch length (so you have a piece 13" x 3") . Draw a line at 1.5 inches and place some sort of adhesive (I use a double sided tape gun) on one side of the line. Line up the canvas/paper with the line and make sure it sticks to the header.

Now you should be able to manually feed the header/paper into the printer - once the header passes the correcct point the printer will "grab" it a position it correctly for printing.

Hope this helps

My printer (Epson R800) keeps on giving me the error 'Media not loaded correctly'. Even before it's even tried grabbing the paper, it starts blinking red on the paper/trash button. I've never had this


Please make sure that the paper that you are using is included under the printer's paper compatibility list.
Make sure that you are selecting the correct paper type on printer settings.
Trash and re-install the drivers.

DVD/CD tray will not load


With the R800, you must slightly open the paper feed panel door, lift it vertically about an inch and then lay it open horizontally away from the printer. Without doing this, there is no way to insert the disc tray.

Epson Stylus Photo R800 (Manual Feed) missing option


I found this answer on Apple.com support discussions.  Worked for me.  There is more information available on the discussion, but this was enough to fix my problem. Try Page Setup. Select to format for your printer. The choices for different all media should now be available under the Paper Size. This is a change from previous practice of creating a separate printer for each type of media.

Unable to print on DVD/CD


The latest R800 driver for Windows
epson12379.exe
(which is probably required for Vista as well as XP) has a hardware interface problem.

When you try to print on a CD, the power button should blink slowly and the paper feed button should turn red until the media (CD) is readied by holding the paper feed button down for a second. However, with the driver above, the paper feed button instead blinks very fast (the printer is being "probed" by the PC in a tight loop I would guess) and so the CD cannot be readied.

The previous version of the driver,
epson11222.exe
does not have this problem. But I doubt it will work under Vista.
If you would like this driver e-mailed to you, send me an e-mail to my "junkmail" account asking for it (include this documentation so I know what you want) and I will send it.

Where to find "manual feed" setting


Try a new copy of your install disc, obtainable from Epson or try using a registry cleaner. You may have picked up a spyware that has corrupeted registry settings for your printer, which will not correct by just reinstalling. Make sure you have the correct drivers and updates for your printer and for your op system.
