Question about Epson Stylus Photo R340 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I checked the steps on your Epson R340 Paper Feed problem. Both of our R340s are about a year and a half old and they are both having the same problem. There is nothing wrong with the paper . . . it just doesn't always feed. Generally if I withdraw the paper and let it fall back into place, it works . . . not always, but generally. I believer there is something with the feed rollers that is disfunctional. It only started happening last month. Up until then the printers have worked fine.

Hello, eventually the feed roller will need to be cleaned, it collects paper dust and dust and inks, so becomes smooth, and unable to grab paper properly, cleaning with alcohol, yes it does clean but dries rubber, WD-40, is waht i use, but i allow it to be absorbed into roller, then wipe off the excess, then try feeding paper.

    Is there only one roller . . . and can you get to it from the feed space on the top where the paper goes into the printer?

Epson R340 does not feed paper or feeds it crooked so print is not square. Out of paper error when paper does not feed.


two things I would do, first carefully flip the printer upside down, (anything that looks like it can flap open, tape it well), and jiggle it slightly and see if anything falls out.

second, i would clean the pickup roller with an alcoholic pad or swab, if its not easily accessible, you will probably need to take the upper an middle casing off, which I dont recommend.

thanks adi

Paper will not load into my Epson PHOTO R340 printer.


May be the problem is at paper sensor, that dirty. The sensor is at bottom of head casing. When paper feeding, the sensor not get the light back, so the printer "think" that no paper. Try to clean paper sensor.
