Question about Epson Stylus Photo R300 InkJet Printer
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.
