Question about Epson Stylus Photo R300 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Prints gobble-de-gook My 4year old Epson R300 inkjet printer starts printing the required task normally, then fades away, ejects the part-done sheet, feeds in another sheet and prints about 12 lines of a script I have never seen, consisting of :- @@@+//!+_ omegas, solid squares etc. It then ejects this sheet, loads another and prints more rubbish.I can only stop the printer by removing the paper. I have deleted all the Epson Printer Drivers from my PC and reloaded them using the disc supplied with the printer. The printer then print normally for a few times, the follows the pattern described above. How can I put this right?

    Exactly the same problem on mine. It will print out one A4 sheet in draft mode before it returns to goblble-de-gook.

    I've had exactly the same problem for the past 12 months. I've tried loading new drivers and changing the USB port. The new drivers worked for a day or so, but the problem keeps returning. Now deleting the old drivers and replacing with new one's doesn't even give me a day's printing.

    Some of the lines are faded and are illiterate to read.

Epson Stylus Photo R300 sounds like it's printing


I know there are some cleaning cartridges with a chemical thinner that could clean any ink residual that could interfere with proper function of the printing head.
If this doesn't work you probably have to replace the head.
Check also the flat cable that follows the printing head during movement.

Will not pull paper into printer...half the time


What sort of paper are you using? What sort of volume has the machine done? Have you ever had a jam and pulled the paper back out through the auto sheet feeder instead of feeding it through the exit rollers?

Epson R300 CD/DVD Tray ERROR message with Leopard any Solutions?


One of the guys on this site said read the manual over and over again, and he was right.
You must go to system preferences and choose print and fax. Set the default media to A4. Then in the Print CD program when you hit print your will see fifth line down Epson Print CD on offer. Hit the arrows on the right and choose print settings from the drop down menu and then media type and choose CD / DVD. All should then work. It does on mine.
Regards and best wishes. David
