I had this printer trouble free for 3 years.. and have had the same problem, however if you follow this little tip .. it worked for me ..the printer I still have but have had to pass on to my wife.. and remember this .. VISTA will NOt work with the R300.. should you ever chose to install VISTA... Epson do not and will not be providing drivers or support for this specific model ..and in fact is discontinued!

That said .. back to your problem .... located inside the printer... to the bottom left and right.. are two little sponges... take out these sponges carefully... wash them .. and ensure thay are completely dry before putting them back....... Install the latestest R300 Print Drivers... I dont think epson still provide support for the drivers however.. but they are available on the net........ reinstall your software and double check that you connect in the exact order it asks you to on the install cd.....

If you were UK .. I could post you a copy of wot you needed .. provide you covered the P+P.. if you cant find the necessary updated drivers.... I was fortunate enough to get hold of them prior to Epson stopping their support .

Regards Faggly ..

The sgreen says general error, see your printer documentation for information about clearing the error.......of course I can't find the manual


Everything you need; manuals, drivers and interactive guide can be found here:

http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes&oid=26322&infoType=Overview


Below are two possible soultions for a General Error:

1. When a General error message appears in the display on your printer's control panel, the print head may not be able to move because of some obstruction. Follow these steps:

  1. Turn the printer off.
  2. Open the printer's cover.
  3. Gently remove any jammed paper or other obstructions from the paper path.
  4. Close the cover and turn the printer back on.
alert_note.gif Note: If you can't remove the paper or foreign object yourself, do not use force and do not disassemble the printer.

2. When a General error message appears in the display on your printer's control panel, the print head may not be able to move back and forth freely.

If your printer's ink cartridge cover is not completely closed, the print head may have trouble moving back and forth. Follow these steps:

Turn off the printer.
  1. Open the printer's cover.
  2. Press the ink cartridge cover to make sure it is completely closed.
  3. Close the cover and turn the printer back on.
Before considering other options you might to try unplugging the printer from the power supply; give it 5 - 10 minutes before plugging back in and restarting.

Hopefully this will help resolve the problem. :)

General error


General Error could be due to several reasons. Try to turn your printer on without the ink cartridges in it. Then turn it off and put the ink cartridges back in.

Epson r300


the software drivers for the r300 are installed in vista, do not use the driver disc.
once it has been installed go to printers, right click on the epson printer and select printer pref.
you should find every thing you need in there.
you cant use the orig epson disc, vista does not like it, it thinks there an error on it.
hope this helps

Error with me epson r300


Hi-

when you go ro check ink levels- is it saying that there is a specific cartridge that you need to change? red light indicates no ink and all of the cartridges should have ink in it. try uninstalling cartridges and reinstall it and make sure you hear a click when you press it down. if that doesnt work,call epson 562-276-1300 for a complaint and replacement of ink. best i got!


thanks for using fixya!
