Hi, this may sound a controversial approach but it is working for me. The R230 just isn't very good at loading paper and as there is no manual feed slot this is very frustrating. I try to use the best paper I can get but even Kodak photo paper comes with a slight "curve" which seems to cause the problem. You can try to straighten the paper by pressing it with books but this often does not work. So the extremely painstaking but effective way to fix the problem is to Very Slightly dampen the leading REAR side of the paper. I usually lick my finger and then lightly apply that along the bottom rear edge. Then feed the paper one sheet at a time, as a result the paper feeds every time.

Not useful information if you are printing a 400 page manual perhaps, but high quality photo prints take a long time and you could always use a different source of moisture!

Hope this helps...

1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button.
4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
7. Turn the printer off.
8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.

Paper jam


From the reference manual for your Photo Printer
http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes&infoType=Doc&oid=60202&prodoid=58654761

The Paper Jams

Press the font29.gif paper button to eject the jammed paper. If the error does not clear, turn the printer off, open the printer cover and the CD/DVD guide. Remove all of the paper inside, including any torn pieces, then close the CD/DVD guide. Reload the paper, then press the font29.gif paper button to resume printing.
r_note.gif Note: r_space.gif If you cannot remove a foreign object easily by yourself, do not use force and do not disassemble the printer. Call Epson for assistance.
If your paper jams frequently, check the following:
  • The paper is smooth, not curled or wrinkled.
  • The paper is of high quality.
  • The printable side of the paper is face up in the sheet feeder.
  • The paper stack was fanned before loading.
  • The paper is not loaded above the triangular load-limit mark on the left edge guide.
  • The paper stack fits under the tabs inside the edge guides.
  • The number of sheets in the paper stack does not exceed the limit specified for that media.

Red light on steady


If the ink light is on steady red, that means the black or color ink cartridge is nearly empty. Obtain a replacement black or color ink cartridge. To know which cartridge is out of ink, check the ink levels using EPSON Status Monitor 3 (Windows) or EPSON Status Monitor (Macintosh). If you just replaced the cartridges before you got the error light, that means that the replacement cartridge is not recognized by your printer. Please reseat cartridges. Then turn the printer on and off. The cartridges maybe bad also.
If the paper light is on steady red, try to reload 10-20 sheets of regular paper into your printer. When printing on CD/DVD, CD/DVD tray is not inserted in the printer. Insert the CD/DVD tray in the printer and press the paper button.Could also be that the printer has loaded more than one sheet of paper at a time. Load paper in the sheet feeder, and then press the paper button to resume printing. If the CD/DVD guide is open, close the CD/DVD guide, load paper and then press the paper button.
