My printer works fine except that it suddenly will only print in manual feed. I can only print 1 copy at a time. The red light comes on after each copy showing there is no paper. How do I get this crazy thing out of manual mode. I have looked at all the options I can find and I can't figure it out. Please help!!!!!!

This worked for me: Unplug (not just turn off) the printer. Wait at least 20 seconds, then plug it back in. Hold the Feed Switch down, then turn on the printer (continue to hold the Feed Switch down). When the printer finishes cycling the paper feed, release the Feed Switch. Copy anything and it should print. You're good to go.
This is an easy printer to fix since there is only one control button. Turn the printer off. Hold the green feed key down while turning the printer on; once the red light begins flashing, let go of the feed button. This will do three things: the printer will calibrate with the installed media, it will print a configuration label and the printer will go into dump mode. Press the feed key again. One more label will come out with with the words "Out of Dump" printed at the top. If the printer still fails to print, remove the ribbon and try the same procedure with direct thermal labels (UPS or FedEx). From there, consult the manual for more troubleshooting tips.
Sometimes if your printer or the program you are printing from has the paper source set to "Letter" it waits for you to press the continue key on the printer which allows you to insert headed note paper before printing.
If it is set to letter, change it to A4 and this should solve your problem
You may need to change this in both the printer settings and/or each program from which you are printing
I had the same problem and was able to get my EPSON Stylus Photo R220 to print a CD using the following procedure. This should work for other Epson Photo printers as well.
1.Open EPSON Print CD 2.When CD is ready for printing do the following: 3.Select Print from the File menu 4.When “The EPSON printer driver dealing with CD
printing is not installed” is displayed – click OK and select Manual Print 5.Set Paper Size to A4 and click OK 6.In Layout select Print Settings 7.In Media Type select CD/DVD 8.Then press Print
The printer is in line mode. Do the following to take it out of line mode: Turn printer power off. Hold the feed button while turning printer power on. When the light starts flashing, release the feed button. When the light starts flashing again, press and hold the feed button. When the light turns steady amber, release the feed button. When the light turns steady green, the mode is changed. Verify the mode by printing and inspecting a status report.
This requires good timing and may take several tries. You'll know it worked if no labels are reeled out after you're done.
Have the same problem after 1,500 pages! This was Lexmark's solution (and it worked)...
Take the paperfeed tray out and you will see a red lever , press it downwards and you will see the paperfeed rollers coming down , you need to pull the rubber tyres off those rollers and place them inside out over them and then try printing any document. Check the paper weight and the paper type you need to use 20 pounds regular paper and try runnning a can of compressed air inside the machine. If rubber tyres on the paper feed rollers are totally worned out you need to replace the feed rollers.
