    What is the paper size and where are you loading the paper? on the buttons, what lights can you see on it, is it just the green light on before you send a print job?

Loading Paper in the Sheet Feeder
1. Open the paper support and pull up the support extensions.
2. Push in the bottom of the output tray. The tray opens and
moves up.
3. Pull out the output tray extension.
4. Place your paper in the printer and slide it against the right
side of the sheet feeder.
Check the following as you load paper:
* Always load the short edge first, even for printing
landscape-oriented documents.
* Load the printable side face up. It’s usually whiter or
brighter than the other side.
5. Adjust the left edge guide to fit lightly against the paper.

Try loading papers from the back, sheet feeder and front feed. One at a time and after loading papers press the paper button to manually feed paper. Check user guide what types of paper are compatible for different feed slots.

Clean the rollers down where the paper sets in the printer. Do not use cheap generic matte coated paper. Some generic matte coated paper will leave a film on your rollers and cause them to not grip the paper.

SOURCE: Epson R1800 refuses fine art papers

I have been stuggling with this tonight too, except with Epson Glossy 13x19.  I kept getting the "Media Out" error when i tried to print it using the sheet feeder.  It turns out that by puting a few blank sheets under the one I was using it lifted the paper enough so that it sensed it being there.

Hope this helps someone else!

SOURCE: EPSON R1800 END OF SERVICE LIFE

You have a few choices on this one.

1. The SSC utility mentioned by Jacklee366 is usually the first port of call but it may not work in some situations. Worth trying regardless

2. Epson have an official reset utility which is available to North American printer owners who have a valid serial number (back of your printer).
You just fill out this form and you will then get access to the utility (the one eagleflh/bos_dsl is reselling with his kits)

3. You can also get access to the official service utility that service engineers use on these printers... A copy is available here.
IMPORTANT: This utility is a lot more powerful than the other two and requires a bit more hoop jumping but it can resolve the maintenance request very efficiently. Whatever you do, read the readme files and take your time if you opt to use it.

Hope that helps.

SOURCE: flash feed paper & ink light my epson r1800 printer

Do you mean that the paper light flashes at the same time as the ink light or do they flash alternately (ie: paper on, ink off -> paper off, ink on)?

If so the waste ink pads are full and you need to do the following:

1. Reset the waste ink counter:
Grab the tool linked from the wasteink.co.uk site (see bottom).

2. Redirect your waste ink into an external tank OR replace your waste ink pads.. (external tank is easier).

Instructions for the R1800 are available from this site



If the lights are doing something different, please post again with detailed information about how they flash and I can what else it might mean.

Hope that helps.

SOURCE: Epson r350 printer does not print thick paper or inkjet paper

Hi, this printer is "clever" in that you don't adjust the thickness setting it does it itself.

It does this based on the paper type you set in the printer properties, see the table below for the different types of paper it will accept & the setting you need to use.

For this paper Select this paper type setting Plain paper, sheets Epson Premium Ink Jet Plain Paper Epson Bright White Ink Jet Paper plain papers Epson Ultra Glossy Photo Paper Epson Ultra Glossy Epson Premium Glossy Photo Paper Epson Premium Glossy Epson Premium Semigloss Photo Paper Epson Premium Semigloss Epson Glossy Photo Paper Epson Glossy Epson Matte Paper - Heavyweight Epson Double-Sided Matte Paper Epson Matte Epson Photo Quality Ink Jet Cards Epson Photo Quality Ink Jet Epson Photo Stickers Epson Photo Stickers Envelopes Envelope
Hope this is of help.

I have an Epson stylus photo R1800 and will not feed paper?


The paper pick up fingers and rollers get smooth and polished with use and then slide on the paper. Clean the rollers and pick mechanisms with isopropyl alcohol to rejuvenate them and restore their grip on the paper. Do this as far along the paper path as you can get, using Q Tips where necessary and turn the rollers to clean their whole surfaces.

Epson R1800 On Print Preview of a photograph


I print with the R1800 as well as the 24" 7880 in my studio. Whenever the "preview" shows less than the whole image I intend to print it is generally either the orientation (portrait/landscpe) is set incorrectly or the Paper size selected is incorrect for the size of the print.

My printer will not print card paper for xmas


Hi - I too am having an issue with my R1800 loading XMAS CARD STOCK paper.....I tried cleaning the rollers as per the EPSON web site. Although, I used alcohol in stead of water. I made sure I got the little roller way down under the paper and it seems better...although not 100%. Hope this helps!

When I press print on the computer, the Epson R1800 just sends the paper through the printer without printing on the paper.


It may have taken care of itself. Problem occurred when I was using letter sized sheets. Switched to 11x17 sheets and after running a couple of these through the printer, it started to print again.

Epson R1800 refuses fine art papers


Hi Fruitless, Last night I was tearing my hair out trying to get my R1800 to accept some Hahnemuhle Satin 310, and it was just passing through and passing through. About once in 20 trys it would finally print. I was in the middle of making up my own paper profiles for this lovely paper. Anyway, I gave up at about 1:30 am, and went to bed. Today I resumed my attack, and guess what fella, there is a solution. Pass this on to everyone. You did not say what version of Photo Shop you were using. I just got my CS3 a week ago, and if you are using it, you can open a photo for printing. Go to Printing Preferences Dialog Box, > click on Maintenance Tab, and then click on the Bottom button that is labeled as Printer & Options Information. The Printer and Options Dialog Box opens, and there at the bottom is a box that says Thick Paper right beside it. Select or check this box and enjoy yourself thereafter. I did not see this in the User's Guide, but knew there had to be an answer to this problem somewhere. No problems ever since. Best of luck.
