Question about Epson Stylus Photo R300 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Fake Error Message

My problem is pretty much the same as everyone elses. It comes up on the screen with 'Paper Jam'. I've checked as much as i can and can find nothing stopping it. When i go to print a document it starts by loading the paper then lines itself up and just as the print head is about to move along the paper to print it stops and the maitenance light comes on with a warn ing on the computer screen. i have tried to press the maitenance button which ejects the paper but then reloads a fresh sheet and stops again. I then have to cancel the print. I've tried to print a test page but the same thing happens. However i have noticed that it will print the nozzle check page but nothing else will print. I then found on the internet a piece about the waste ink ctr,so i did that and still nothing. I have the ssc utility but still nothing. I live in an upatairs flat and i'm disabled. You are my last hope as I am sorely tempted to chuck it out the window.

I am running Vista Ultimate SP1 x64 all updates and have been trying to sort out the fake paper jam on my Epson R300. I tried compressed air from my workshop compressor; believe me if anything was blocking the feed it wouldn't after I blasted it lol! anyway I also tried running some thick card through and still nothing, did some button pressing to get out of maintenance errors and all sorts of other things. I was about 5 mins away from reluctantly scrapping the printer when I happened across SSC Utility.

I downloaded SSC Utility, but there didn't seem to be much that would sort out the paper jam so out of curiosity I decided to click a few things and then test the printer.

The only thing I ended up Clicking was 'Reset Protection Counter' and that worked, it printed out fine.

so that was my solution, we'll see how long it lasts.

    UPDATE: My Epson is dead, I got sick of trying to get out of the paper jam loop. So I have scrapped it. I now have a nice new Epson Stylus Photo RX585. highly recommended, prints great, scans great and prints cd no trouble. Feels well built.

Check the location of the ink carriage. If a piece of paper gets wadded up under this or something else is obstucting it you will see this error.

The original loaded message comes up when a sheet of paper is in the scanner tray.

Error 241.1 Paper Jam. I have reseated the tray


Brand New T652n lexmark printer get a paper jam every time! just opened and haven't been able to print one paper. Doesn't matter if you print from tray one or tray two. It gets stuck right after the rollers pick it up and try to send it to the toner. Any suggestions? I've tried to reseat the toner, plain paper, sized the paper correctly, I've tried just about everything I can think of! I can feed paper manually through the top tray, and it will print. But, just using the manual tray defeats the purpose of the other two trays. Anyone else having this issue?
