This means the IR indicator is dirty with ink or something. You need to clean it.
I wish I could post pictures to show how to do this...

    Sometimes a small fragment of paper gets jammed where you can not see it. Use a hemostat to pull ot the fragments.

The led screen shows genera error


you need to reset your printer try doing this
  • Press and hold “Stop”, “Maintenance”, and “Power” buttons for about 10 seconds. A message will come on the screen saying counter is reset and to turn the printer off. The R200 and others don’t have a screen so just wait until the 10 seconds is up.
  • Turn the printer off, unplug the power cord. Wait about 1 minute and power the printer back up. The counter will be reset. That’s all there is to the reset procedure.

General error


I have had that same problem multiple times. I even tried to call & email Epson technical support...that did not help! Try turning off computer, unplug the USB cord from the back of the printer, uplug the power cord from your wall or power strip. Next, try plugging them all back in....in the same order (power cord, USB cord, printer on).

Fake Error Message


I am running Vista Ultimate SP1 x64 all updates and have been trying to sort out the fake paper jam on my Epson R300. I tried compressed air from my workshop compressor; believe me if anything was blocking the feed it wouldn't after I blasted it lol! anyway I also tried running some thick card through and still nothing, did some button pressing to get out of maintenance errors and all sorts of other things. I was about 5 mins away from reluctantly scrapping the printer when I happened across SSC Utility.

I downloaded SSC Utility, but there didn't seem to be much that would sort out the paper jam so out of curiosity I decided to click a few things and then test the printer.

The only thing I ended up Clicking was 'Reset Protection Counter' and that worked, it printed out fine.

so that was my solution, we'll see how long it lasts.

Printer stopped printing. Error message


Thjis is indication the Waste in collector pades need changing eventually.- but no now. you have plenty of warning
Reset Epson R300/200
press three buttons to reset the counters
The buttons are "STOP" "Maintenance" and "POWER"
or down load the epson utility www.ssclg.com and use the reset counter feature

The printer will sound like its going to blow up, but thats normal.

You can do this about 5 times before your printer starts to piss out ink over the table because the Waste Ink Ink Pad is full

To avoid eventual flooding go to rear of the machine- remove the little door and rake around for a small plastic pipe buried under some padding under the left side.
Fix to this a thin piece of ploythene tube[Fish tank air supply], extend it to our side the machine and place in a suitable container to collect the waste ink..

Fake paper jam


I had the very same problem unitl a moment ago!! I found some A4 card and forced it through the printer. I tried to print a document as usual, as the rollers (inside the printer) lifted, i pushed the card through in an attempt to clear any blockage which wasn't visible to me. It cleared the block and is now working perfectly again !! give it a go.
