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 ..
