First check the green led on the panel (feeder selection) normally for cut sheet must be on the right side and for roll on the left side.

Plotter wont recognize edge of clear films when loaded from a roll or sheet. recognized plain paper fine


I would check the sensor on the carriage that detects paper. It might be dirty enough that printer cannot detect the subtle edge of the clear film. It is the blue light that turns on on the bottom of the carriage when you load paper.

Epson Stylus photo 340 r printer paper jam when trying to print


first, make sure you the paper correctly to avoid paper jam.
Single Sheets 1. Open the paper support and raise the extension. 2. Place your paper short edge first against the right edge of the feeder, under the tab, with the printable (whiter or glossier) side up. If you are loading multiple sheets, fan the stack of paper before loading it to prevent paper jams. Note: Don’t load paper above the arrow mark inside the left edge guide. Some special papers can be loaded only one sheet at a time. Slide the left edge guide against the paper. Make sure it is snug, but not so tight that the paper is bent. (For letter- or A4-size paper, you may not need to move the edge guide over.) paper.4.2.1.jpg 4. Open the output tray and pull out the extension. You should also follow these guidelines:Always load the short edge first, even when you’re printing landscape-oriented pictures. • When using special papers, check the paper package for additional instructions. Some papers require using a support sheet included in the package. Note: Always keep unused paper in the original package and store it flat to prevent curling.
if you loaded the paper, it jammed again, remove the paper and tried to print, still the same, its a hardware issue, alraedy, the printers roller is broken

Doesn't recognize paper when loaded


When loading the paper, the edge sensors can be a bit tricky.

Pull the paper through the main guide with the locking plate released. Guide the paper edge it's right along the blue (not over it, just along the left edge of the guide markings on the body of the unit). Pull the paper through and then guide it back so that the lead edge just barely shows up, below the small, black rollers in the main print area. Now lock it down and reboot the system.

Once the print head alignment has finished the unit will pull the paper through and then move it forward and back until it is properly aligned, then cut off any excess it detects.

You should now be able to print. Note: Please do not re-adjust the paper edge after this process is complete.

Leading edge detection error When loading paper into printer this is displayed on the lcd scren


This is caused when the size paper loaded into the machine does not match the size the machine expected. Check the paper size settings to ensure you are using the correct paper setting. This also can be caused if paper loaded does not align correctly.

Loading cut sheets


Try to check the paper media set on the plotter (roll/plain paper). It usually happens if paper media is not the same with the plotter setting. To change it, unload the paper, press the media button on the printer to the right media and load the paper again. It should work now.

Cd tray not feeding


I had the same problem. My printer was sitting too far back in the cabinet and the cd tray was hitting the back wall when it was pulling it throuh. I moved the printer forward and the obstruction in the back was no longer an issue. It started printing all cd's just fine.
