Try opening printer properties, and on prionter properties set up the paper format to A4.

Try also getting a print preview before printing, from preview you can set up print format.

Prints are coming out dark with the epson driver from the website, and too light with the mac driver. operating system mac osx 10.6.1


Not an uncommon Epson problem. You will need to adjust the brightness and contrast settings and possibly the gamma and colour settings of the printer for both the PC and Mac and then save them as unique profiles. The user manual should explain what you need to do and if you don't have one you can download it from the following Epson Support link

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.

Paper Selection on my Epsom R1800 & R800 using a MAC


Hmmm, I print from a Mac to an Epson Stylus Photo R1800 and a smaller HP inkjet one. What application are you trying to print from? And are we talking about the R1800?

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.

Epson Stylus Photo R800 Print Head Nozzles ??


Don't use nozzles clean function, besides ink consuming it can cause damages that cannot be fixed: black lines on the back side of the page that will be permanent. Instead put two photo paper together (2x260 gr) and push the two papers together into the printer while printing a motive including many colors. Do so a couple of times and the clogg usually disappears. Good luck! jonk

Epson R800 prints very wet, very very smeared pictures


it depends on the type of paper you are using. it is how the ink chemicals react to the chemicals on the photo paper.
