Question about Epson Stylus Photo R340 InkJet Printer
The printer fed too much paper and stopped, I pulled the paper out from the back. Now the printer head won't cycle into it's non print position. It tries, but it is sitting up too high.
I only use this printer for photos and so even though it's several years old, it's like new because I don't use it for every day printing.
The error that comes up says "A printer error has occured. Please see your manuel" Which I did and it said to call Epson, which I did and they say I need to take it in for service. Can I fix this myself or do I really need to take it into have it serviced. Epson said to buy a new printer of course.
The issue that your having is a hardware issue. There might be something wrong with the gears or the printhead. This is a very complex process if your going to fix it yourself.

To fix the NON EXISTANT paper jam:
Status light is on, paper light is on - you can hear the paper feed trying to "grab" the paper, but it can't, and status light goes Red.
Take out paper tray
Reset the blue paper holders, move them tight against the paper so the paper is snug against all blue barriers. Cause: Somehow the blue paper holders got dislodged and the paper is not snug so the feeder is trying to grab paper that is slightly out of reach.
