Question about Epson Stylus Photo R1800 InkJet Printer
This is a recent problem. When I try to print, sometimes it works great. Sometimes the paper just rolls through with no attempt to print and the paper light comes on. If I push the paper button the next sheet sometimes prints but lately it won't print at all. Sometimes it will print a test sheet, sometimes it won't. I have reinstalled the drivers, connected and disconnected cleared the spool etc. And sometimes the paper moves around but won't "catch" and get pulled through. It just sits there in the sheet feeder. I spent an hour with an epson guy on the phone with no results. Argh.
I had feeder problems but not any more: every type of paper I put through the rear feeder. Put the rear feeder attachment on and load your paper one by one through there. Try it, it has worked for me and might work for you.

I physically rolled the little rubber sheet feeder all the way forward and worked fine after. maybe it gets stuck in the middle sometimes...

Me again. I had to get a repairman to come out and he basically CLEANED the bejeezus out of the rubber roller section that pulls the paper through. Seems alright again. For now... He used a solvent (said lighter fluid was okay for this purpose- because I had some on hand from a friend who uses it for cleaning such thing, and he fixes printers as part of his work). He wetted a rag with the solvent, and wearing rubber gloves, worked those rubber rollers over good. That seems to be the answer.

This has occured to a 2.hand printer I just bought. First head was clogged very much. I disassembled the head, used a paper towel soaked in luke warm water to clear off the over-gooed printing head surface. It is quite easy to get the head out and back in. Unfortunately my cyan ran out during clean-cycle, so I can't say if it also cured the passing paper problem.
