THE ROLLERS THAT PULL THE PAPER THROUGH SEEMS TO BE MESSED UP. WE HAVE TO REPEATEDLY RE-ADJUST THE PAPER, THE RED LIGHT FLASHES, OVER AND OVER AGAIN BEFORE IT FINALLY PULLS THE PAPER IN TO PRINT. ARE THE ROLLERS SHOT? DO WE NEED A NEW PRINTER?

Maximum thickness allowed in this printer is 250gsm for Premium Glossy, therefor the paper appears to outside the specification of the machine. Only answer is use slightly lighter paper.

Why won't my Epson Printer XP405 print a photo on Epson Glossy Photo paper


Your printer may need you to replace the "matt black ink" with "gloss black ink".

I have a Epson pro large format 9600, I print on canvas, I have use Photo black since I have it, but never getting a saturation ressult. I have been counsil by Epson to use Matt black rather than Phot


"Photo black" is designed specifically for glossy photo paper. Matte black is for non-glossy paper, including plain paper. Matte black will print darker on non-glossy paper than photo black does.

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

Paper just keeps feeding through no printing & green light just keeps flashing. How do I know when paper is loaded correctly


Hi,

It could be a problem with holder shaft & Rollers. Turn off the printer and clean the rollers with lint free cloth.

make sure you shuffle the paper before placing them in the tray and stack the paper tray properly for any loose connections.

Ron

My Epson 1290 (some years old) doesn't grab paper, especially good inkjet paper) properly. It passes straight through, prints on the roller, and/or I get messages saying the paper isn't loaded properly or...


That could be from the rubber rollers not being able to grip the paper. They get polished or shiney over time with use and age. Then they slip or pull incorrectly and you get your problems. There are other things that can cause this but nothing worth fixing.

Fixing the rubber rollers is easy. You need some ispropyl rubbing alcohol and a paper towel. Make sure it is isopropyl type as this won;t attack other parts. Simpley wet the paper towel and wipe down the rubber rollers. You will see the rubber go from a dull shine to dull flat rubber. This takes off the buildup on the rubber and lets it grip again. Eventually the rubber will age harden and this trick won;t work but this can give you years more service.

Epson Stylus photo 340 r printer paper jam when trying to print


first, make sure you the paper correctly to avoid paper jam.
Single Sheets 1. Open the paper support and raise the extension. 2. Place your paper short edge first against the right edge of the feeder, under the tab, with the printable (whiter or glossier) side up. If you are loading multiple sheets, fan the stack of paper before loading it to prevent paper jams. Note: Don’t load paper above the arrow mark inside the left edge guide. Some special papers can be loaded only one sheet at a time. Slide the left edge guide against the paper. Make sure it is snug, but not so tight that the paper is bent. (For letter- or A4-size paper, you may not need to move the edge guide over.) paper.4.2.1.jpg 4. Open the output tray and pull out the extension. You should also follow these guidelines:Always load the short edge first, even when you’re printing landscape-oriented pictures. • When using special papers, check the paper package for additional instructions. Some papers require using a support sheet included in the package. Note: Always keep unused paper in the original package and store it flat to prevent curling.
if you loaded the paper, it jammed again, remove the paper and tried to print, still the same, its a hardware issue, alraedy, the printers roller is broken
