Hi, when I try to print the paper starts to feed normally, but after about 1 cm it begins to pull more to the right (to the side where the poewr button is) and finally the paper jams. I tried to clean the paper path but I didn't find anything. No paper or anything else which could block the paper path. I have not open the covers yet so I don't have the full picture inside. I'd appreciate any help. Thank you Constantine

Hi I only know most printers can do test print by switching off first then hold down to of your switches together and keep hold and then switch on the printer for 5 or so secs but I not sure off hand what ones so try different ones till it works All the Best: Pineworks
Check to see if the pinch roller is set for standard sheet feeding the printer must feed by the tractor feed only.Does the paper get damaged when you try to feed or reset the page beginning, What we are looking for is a piece of one of the sheets loged in the pinch roller.Also check the pressure adjuster on the right side if you are not using multiple copie printing it should be set to medium . Let me know what you found... Be mucho blessed... Mark
2. TRASH and REINSTALL the drivers 3. Try a different application and file 4using a PHOTO PRINTER (Stylus PHOTO) try to set the QUALITY OPTION to BEST PHOTO or PHOTO RPM 5. Go to PRINTING PREFERENCES and hit ADVANCE 6. Choose the right PAPER TYPE, SIZE and SOURCE then disable HIGH SPEED 7. Once all those are set choose PHOTO RPM under the COLOR MANAGEMENT box and try printing 8. This will print a lot slower but will be using alot of ink and eliminate the lines
Check status monitor if empty or low:
Replace if empty ect:
Soak the cartridge nozzles upright in Flush Solution for 6 hours dry and retry , make up a A4 Paper colour printing page with each colour band about 1" high x 8" wide and print out 4 - 6 pages checking which colour band is poor:
Keep printing if improvement noticed:
Resoak the offending cartridges and repeat:
Use cleaning cartridge on offending colour slot/s then retry:
Dont use the head cleaning utility to much as it is programmed to disable your printer after a pre-set number of cleans and will have to be serviced:
Check status monitor see if cartridges are low or nearly empty , if new or full take out all cartridges and soak nozzles upright in cleaning solution overnight , or untill ink starts to bleed out:
Dab dry and re - fit , make up a A4 paper page with 6 colour bands about 1" high x 8" wide and print about 4 to 6 pages ,
check which colours are poor , if improvement is observed run
again a few times:
If one colour is poor take out that cartridge and soak again for a few hours , try again:
If no improvement replace with new cartridge or use a cleaning cartridge ( available on-line ) :
Using the head-cleaning utility shortens the life of the printer as the printer is set to lock-out after a pre-set use of the cleaning facility: and will have to be re-set instore:
Last night I was tearing my hair out trying to get my R1800 to accept some Hahnemuhle Satin 310, and it was just passing through and passing through. About once in 20 trys it would finally print. I was in the middle of making up my own paper profiles for this lovely paper. Anyway, I gave up at about 1:30 am, and went to bed. Today I resumed my attack, and guess what fella, there is a solution. Pass this on to everyone. You did not say what version of Photo Shop you were using. I just got my CS3 a week ago, and if you are using it, you can open a photo for printing. Go to Printing Preferences Dialog Box, > click on Maintenance Tab, and then click on the Bottom button that is labeled as Printer & Options Information. The Printer and Options Dialog Box opens, and there at the bottom is a box that says Thick Paper right beside it. Select or check this box and enjoy yourself thereafter. I did not see this in the User's Guide, but knew there had to be an answer to this problem somewhere. No problems ever since. Best of luck.
