If you have carried out 4 to 5 head cleans, waited about 8 hours and done another 3 or head cleans doing nozzle checks after each clean (as recommended by the manual) and there is still no improvement then you will need a third party head cleaning solution such as this one:

Other makes & brands are available just google "inkjet head cleaning solution" Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Epson r350 printer does not print thick paper or inkjet paper

Hi, this printer is "clever" in that you don't adjust the thickness setting it does it itself.

It does this based on the paper type you set in the printer properties, see the table below for the different types of paper it will accept & the setting you need to use.

For this paper Select this paper type setting Plain paper, sheets Epson Premium Ink Jet Plain Paper Epson Bright White Ink Jet Paper plain papers Epson Ultra Glossy Photo Paper Epson Ultra Glossy Epson Premium Glossy Photo Paper Epson Premium Glossy Epson Premium Semigloss Photo Paper Epson Premium Semigloss Epson Glossy Photo Paper Epson Glossy Epson Matte Paper - Heavyweight Epson Double-Sided Matte Paper Epson Matte Epson Photo Quality Ink Jet Cards Epson Photo Quality Ink Jet Epson Photo Stickers Epson Photo Stickers Envelopes Envelope
Hope this is of help.

Is media transparent? Epson paper sensor think that no paper. Put white stiker at top left and right of media (about 1 cm height and 2 cm width). It's for tricky sensor.

Nothing to adjust feed mechanics. If it's temporaly print, you must feeed paper 1 by 1, and when printer grab paper, push paper by hand. If it's routine print, you can adjust the pick up rubber at paper feedr mechanic. Add double tape ( 1 mm, soft) below top rubber. I have done it, and printer can grab/feed paper up to 350 grams.

Be sure you are using genuine epson ink. Epson printers are "smart" and will not allow generic ink to work properly. Even after you replace a generic with a genuine it may take several print outs and alignments to get it to print again.

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

Replaced ink in 2200 and says need new ink still will not let me


I guess your printer need to reset the counter ink pad, for reset the counter you must have a adjustment/reseter software, and for your printer type please download <a href="http://www.ziddu.com/downloadlink/7587521/sscserve4.3.exe">here</a>

I hope this link can solve your problem

I was printing on a A4 thick (invitacion Card)


Make sure there is 1/16 to 1/32 inch space on each side of the paper in the paper tray.
Move the paper type selector back and forth 5 times, to make sure it is not stuck.
Feed the tray with a minimum of 20 sheets of paper and try to see if it loads paper through.
The paper thickness lever has two settings, one for plain paper, (thin paper 20# to 24#) and one for envelopes and thick paper.
It should be on the 0 setting for thin paper and on the + setting for thick paper and envelopes.
The paper adjustment lever may be adjusted in between the two settings to accommodate paper that is not standard or that the operating/environmental conditions have changed.
Make sure the paper is loaded far enough into the printer to ensure good contact between the paper and the paper feed mechanism.

Can't print custom paper size on HP Photosmart C6180


Printing anything other than 8.5" x 11" I have found challenging but there is a way around it. When you are ready to print select Print and go to
"Properties" button beside the name of the Printer.
Select normal for your print quality,
Paper source select Main Tray,
in resizing options select the size you need. In this case you would make a custom or perhaps the Card Envelope 4" x 6"
Select "Scale to paper size"
under the Resolution button there is a box "Show preview before printing" I select that so that I can see for sure before printing that it is recognizing my special paper and not the usual 8.5 x 11 sheet.
If it all looks good and it should, START PRINTING

You have to do this everytime you want to print a special size paper. If you print a lot of this size of paper custom name it something easy like your name"Krissy card env" so you can find it quickly and remember easily the process you follow.

Printing heavy weight invitation stock on Epson R200


The card is probably too thick. Try cleaning the feed roller in the Sheet feeder to improve its grip. Check the GSM of the paper is within the spec of the printer.
