Question about Epson Stylus Photo R1800 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Failure of an Epson Stylus R 1800 printer to print properly conistently.

From Lowerhouse to CompuG
Re the Epson R1800 inkjet printer; no viable solution has been advanced so far. The prints can fail at some point randomly in the process and yet sometimes they print properly and fully. It is a very frustrating fault. The paper is loaded properly and all the normal processes are followed to achieve a print. I have followed Epson's various 'solutions' - latest Drivers, stopping the programs that run at startup etc.. to no avail. The machine has not had a hard life since purchase and prints to perfection when it behaves itself. A solution would be much appreciated.

    have exactly the same problem,mine seems to happen when ink monitor shows low levels? also the printer will suddenly check itself or reset by itself, and when you check levels all are empty? this only happens in Vista64, Xpro seems to work ok?

    similar problem. prints the best but sporadically will not take paper and says if jammed even though there is no paper taken into the printer. Also the 2 red lights for ink and paper start flashing erratically and then nothing happens. But the ink is full and paper is ok. Cn't find anyone who will work on in it. I live in CT. Printer should have lots of life on it with the low usage and high cost of the printer. Help?

    I am experiencing the same problem; very frustrating. When I use the function that cleans any clogged heads, it uses an exteme amount of ink.

    This is unacceptqble with the price and quantity of cartridges it must use.

    Needless to say I will never purchase another epson printer.

Here is the solution:

2. Right click your printer, and select PROPERTIES. (If your printer is not listed, click on VIEW INSTALLED PRINTERS first).
3. Select the ADVANCED tab.
5. Click on APPLY (if applicable), then OK.
6. Restart your computer.
7. Try printing now.
