Printer Feed Problems

I have an Epson inkjet 1160 wide carriage. The paper is loaded to print. The first piece of paper will start to feed but then will pass through. Sometimes the next piece will catch and print and then other times a few pieces will pass through before it will catch. It will almost always happen with the first piece and then will happen randomly through-out if I am printing 20 or 30 copies.

    I use 24lb. paper, which is what I have always used. It happens with all papers. Heavyweight stock, labels, cardstock etc.

EPSON Photo 1400 paper feed and ink replacement problem


Asit is only a couple of months old seek a replacement under guarantee/warranty.

I have an Epson R1800 and when I load Roll 13X19 matte media and try to print I either get a "jammed media" message or the printer trys to print without feeding the media.


I had a similar problem trying to print epson pro canvas. I finally learned the "trick". First I generally cut an appropriately sized pice of canvas from the roll. Then I attach a HEADER. This is dome by cutting a piece of 13" wide photo paper in a three inch length (so you have a piece 13" x 3") . Draw a line at 1.5 inches and place some sort of adhesive (I use a double sided tape gun) on one side of the line. Line up the canvas/paper with the line and make sure it sticks to the header.

Now you should be able to manually feed the header/paper into the printer - once the header passes the correcct point the printer will "grab" it a position it correctly for printing.

Hope this helps

Epson c90 paper feed problem


Is the message general error? The problem is tchip. When turn on chip is recognized by printer, but when start to print, printer "read" some information from the chip. Here is the error. Some pin at the chip for redaing the existence of chip, other pin for reading the information. Check connector between chip and carriage.

Epson R320 "General Error" message - unable to clear


If you are getting a 'carriage jam' error as soon as you turn on your Epson printer with no tasks in progress, then check for any piece of paper stuck in the carriage. Remove the paper carefully. If the paper tears, part of it might remain inside the paper path and damage the product.

Fix 'Carriage Jam' : Open Door, clear carriage jam,
and then press OK to continue' error message
Turn off the printer and open it to see where the paper is stuck.
Manually move the carriage toward the opposite side.
Check the paper path and remove any piece of paper or any other object that is stuck in the path.
Reconnect the power cord and turn on the printer.

Epson 1160


before it went to flashing all lights, was there anything that was either done to the unit cleaning, ink install ect.

also I would run through all the cleaning procedures of the unit as well click the below link

http://files.support.epson.com/htmldocs/sc1160/sc1160u1/INDEX.HTM

and then goto the Maintenance section of the manual.

was there any grinding noises and other sounds on the last printing?
