This model appears to have several trays for print media see the manual. Check the default print settings by right-clicking on the printer icon in the Printers and Faxes folder and see that the default is set to what you print most. Also verify all trays are inserted properly and that you have plain paper in the paper tray.

If it is asking for photo paper you should be able to hit ok on the screen and then it should go to the default screen and be ready to print.

Paper cassette is not seated correctly. check for paper or objects blocking the cassette path. reinsert the cassette and press Start. keep getting this message. started after printing and installing...


I had this same problem and tried everything (I thought) to fix it. Then I saw the solution at:
http://www.retrevo.com/c/sohohelp/blogs/show/6633/I-just-had-my-espon-artisan-800-replaced-and-the-refurb-keeps-saying-that-the-paper-cassette-is-not-seated-correctly#replyForm

Basically there is a plastic pin that tends to break off and stays in the area where the cassette is loaded. It takes up just enough space to keep the cassette from being pushed in all the way. The solution is to turn the printer off, unplug it, then lift up the printer so the broken pin falls out. Once it comes out, the printer will work fine again.

Doesn't pick up photo paper -


So in other words, the printer jams when you put in photo paper, but not with normal paper?

Check your printer to make sure it supports printing to photo paper. If it does, check to see what kind it supports. There are different thicknesses of paper and the one your putting in may be too thick.
