Epson stylus photo r1800

I can't turn off my printer by powering off. i'll turn off if i unplug. it started with a paper jam; but the paper got taken out and all the red flashing lights are not longer flashing. I called epson technical support and they told me it is a hardware problem (after a series of test, like pressing on the ink button or the paper button). they recommend i find a service person to fix or buy a new printer--both of which i don't really want to do....but is there anything else i can do to find out and if i can fix teh problem myself? i.e replace a part? if i go the service person route, what should i expect in terms of cost? thanks, adrienne

Return it to them. If it is under warranty, they should replace it.

I have an Epson stylus photo R1800 and will not feed paper?

The paper pick up fingers and rollers get smooth and polished with use and then slide on the paper. Clean the rollers and pick mechanisms with isopropyl alcohol to rejuvenate them and restore their grip on the paper. Do this as far along the paper path as you can get, using Q Tips where necessary and turn the rollers to clean their whole surfaces.

First check to see if there any any bits of paper stuck by checking the front and the rear feeder.

Epson R1800: printing 13x19" velvet paper. hand feeding into rear of printer. keeps saying eror, or paper jam or ... then finally just spits the paper through and out.

why print velvet paper? the problem is the velvet would be too thick and it would jam the print heads because when they run over the paper it would pull the velvet and it would get jammed i don`t think you should print velvet

R1800 printer turns on only when I hold the power

first, turn off the printer. unplug it from the power source. while its off, open the printer cover, so you could have an access to the inside of the printer, check for any obstruction, paper jam or any foreign object. if you found anything, take it out, if not, still turn on the printer after checking.dont forget to plug it in the power source, if the issue persists, call epson to get a replacement printer if the product is still 1 yr. from the date of purchase, if it is more than a year, most probably, thats out of warranty,

When I press print on the computer, the Epson R1800 just sends the paper through the printer without printing on the paper.

It may have taken care of itself. Problem occurred when I was using letter sized sheets. Switched to 11x17 sheets and after running a couple of these through the printer, it started to print again.
