Question about Epson Stylus Photo R220 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Won't print a 4 x 6 print. Paper passes right through printer

I've had this printer for a few years and it has been great. Lately, sporadically, it won't print on 4 x 6 paper. The paper passes right through the printer and I get this message:
"Close the CD/DVD guide. Then reload the paper and press the Paper button on the printer or click the Continue button when it appears on the screen. To cancel all print jobs, click the Cancel button."
The CD/DVD guide is closed. I can print on 5 x 7 and 8 x 10 paper. I am using Espon Ultra Premium Glossy paper with a Compaq coumputer running Windows XP.
Help? Thanks!

    Hi Basti,



    Thank you for taking the time to answer my Epson Photo R220 problem. I've had all your suggestions in place, but verified them after your email. I still can't print on 4 x 6 paper. (However sometimes I can eek out one print before it quits with this paper).



    I do appreciate your help!

Hi-

Double check on printer properties under printers and faxes if 4X6 is selected, then access printer properties as well on the application or program where you are printing the images by clicking File then print option. Make sure Epson is the default printer.

Keep us posted, thanks!

Canon Pixma MX300 won't print black anymore! How to fix?


I have used "refill" kits in the past and for the time and effort involved you might just try finding a local retailer that will give you credit for the empty cartridge to replace with a professionally refilled one.

The problem with refilling the same cartridge over and over again is that they will, eventually, need to be replaced. I would suggest that you

1 - Make sure there is nothing plugging the hole at the top of the cartridge to allow air in, which is needed to let the ink flow out.

2- Install another cartridge and you get the same problem, then it narrows your fix to something with the printer.

3 - If it is the printer, I were rubber gloves and use "denatured alcohol" and a rag (no not use anything with paper as it can tear and leave pieces inside causing the printer to jamb) and after removing all of the cartridges wipe down anything that I can reach inside the printer.

4 - Although you have tried the DEEP CLEAN, if the none of the above works for you, try the NOZZLE CLEAN. If you are still having a problem then either re-post the problem or doe a Google Search listing the model of the printer you have, you may find out it is a problem that others have experienced and there is no solution.

Good Luck

I don't understand the my printer was working perfect it pass the aliment but I turn off the printer for few weeks and now when I turn on my printer it won't print black it won't pass the


INK PROBLEM
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

This reply may be too late but I hope you've got it fixed now. If you're still having this problem on your printer, remove the sheets of paper from the feeder. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges. Close the cover. Unplug and replug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and make sure they are properly seated in the slots. Close the cover. Try to print again.

My Printer works fine... except it won't feed business cards or card stock


You cant fix this because brother printers are limited to paper:
paper that weights more than 200g wont run through the paper feeder.

Printer is catching on the bottom right section of paper when printing


when was the last time you changed the cartridge/inkhead could be ink buildup and causing it to snag Inkjets are horrible about drying and clogging. if inkhead is removeable you may take it off and clean the area that comes in contact or proximity to the paper, I would also check the bottom part of the roller and housing for anything that could be jammed in there or stuck.
