Have you contacted Epson directly? I had a problem with the R200 some time ago and it was down to the tracking of the CD/DVD tray being out of alignment. Due to cost of the printers now it is not worth paying to get them fixed. Lookout for Epson deals where you can trade in your old R300 for a newer model. I still have my R200 still going strong and an RX858.I am sorry I have no firm advice to fix it direct.Mac#

I had the same problem. Restarted the printer. Reinstalled the drivers. Scratched my head ... nothing! then I moved the printer away from the wall - problem solved! I can't say that this will work for you but if everything else is working, as it was and still is on mine then it's worth a try.
What I didn't realsie was that the cd tray comes out of the back of the printer when it's checking the alignment. I had inadvertantly pushed the printer back, too close to the wall. Moved it forward slightly and it's fixed.
Hope that solves it for everyone.

Check to see if you have the printer selected as the default printer. You can select the correct printer by going to the control panel to see if it's showing as default.

Printer manufacturers do not want folks to use cartridges that have been refilled and they deliberately design their printers to not work with refills. If you get a generic refill you have to make sure that they have taken measures to counteract what Epson has programmed into their printers. Chalk up the experience to GREED - they want you to use their grossly over priced inks - that is where they make their money! Check in Google for work a rounds this nonsense.

Network printing with a non-networked printerThis model printer has only an USB printer connection andnormally connected to a computer or laptop.To connect this printer wirelessly to all laptops on your wireless networkthere are a couple of methods.Connect the printer to a desktop computer and setup the printer as a sharedprinter. Next connect the desktop computer to your wireless router with a LANcable and then configure the wireless laptops to connect to the shared printeron the desktop computer. NOTE - This desktop computer and printer must be on atall times for the wireless laptops to print to the printer.OTHER METHODConnect the printer to an USB print server and connect the print server to thewireless router with a LAN cable. The printer drivers needs to be installed onall the wireless laptops and then the printer port needs to be deleted from theUSB port and a new IP address printer port installed. This IP address will bethe IP address of the print server.

I'm sorry but I read over the manual and couldn't find a 'general error' message listed. Nor, could I find a way to reset the printer so it could print.

The documentation for the epson printer is rather detailed though, and it is possible I missed it somewhere, but I would try the above link for more leads that may lead to a solution.

Maybe try to call Epson technical support for more information:

Start with a "nozzle check" and confirm that all your colors are printing properly. Epson printers are prone to clogging, and this can cause very strange effects if some of the colors don't fire properly. I just replaced my Epson Photo 260 because I couldn't get the black head to clear....

Is your Epson printer new? If so you would have got a CD. Why not try the CD. If not you could try any Epson near R300 series. It might work or sometime it may detect by itself and connect your printer to the computer.

It is somewhat difficult to give a helpful answer as you do not mention what sort of image files are on the card and that could be the real culprit- If your camera produces RAW image files, then you cannot print from those - you need a format like JPEG of TIFF (as examples). Please give some more information so we can then help.
