Question about Epson Stylus® Photo R340 InkJet Printer

2 Answers

Paper will not load into my Epson PHOTO R340 printer.

My Epson PHOTO R340 will not load photo paper of any kind. I have had the printer for almost 2 years now. The issue began recently when I tried to print on the Epson Ultra Premium Glossy Paper and now it will not print on paper of any kind. The printer attempts to feed the paper, and then just continues to feed it until the paper completely comes out without being printed on. The LCD screen then reads that the printer is out of paper or the paper is jammed. The printer has not suffered any damage. Thank you. Allison Glenn

Hello, eventually the feed roller will need to be cleaned, it collects paper dust and dust and inks, so becomes smooth, and unable to grab paper properly, cleaning with alcohol dries out the rubber, WD-40, is what I use, but I allow it to be absorbed into roller, then wipe off the excess.

May be the problem is at paper sensor, that dirty. The sensor is at bottom of head casing. When paper feeding, the sensor not get the light back, so the printer "think" that no paper. Try to clean paper sensor.
