    I turned the printer off as usual.  Then when I went to turn it on again about 5-10 minutes later, it wouldn't go on.  I checked the cord & unplugged it from my outlet & plugged it in again.  Still doesn't go on.

    Piece of ****. For years I have had the same problem. Sometimes it turns back on in a couple of days. Once it took 4 months. I'm just disgusted. The printer has a bad power supply and Epson refuses to acknowledge the problem

Don't try to remove the casing, get it serviced. Trust me it is not a problem with the switch.

I HAVE a epson stylus photo R800 printer. I cleaned the printer head using both the automatic and manual settings. The test pattern improved greatly, but still leaves the seventh pattern incomplete. ...

if after doing 6 head cleanings and its still the same issue, that only means that the printer is already having a hardware issue, the printer is totally broken

Epson Stylus Photo R800 (Manual Feed) missing option

I found this answer on support discussions.  Worked for me.  There is more information available on the discussion, but this was enough to fix my problem. Try Page Setup. Select to format for your printer. The choices for different all media should now be available under the Paper Size. This is a change from previous practice of creating a separate printer for each type of media.

Epson R800 prints very wet, very very smeared pictures

it depends on the type of paper you are using. it is how the ink chemicals react to the chemicals on the photo paper.
