Epson Printer wont print all the time with thick paper

Q: Epson Printer wont print all the time with thick paper

Just updated the drivers on my Epson Artisan 700. When I use Photoshop CS3 and print it works fine, however, without changing any settings, if i print to a paper that is thicker, the printer acts like it is printing, but when it comes out, nothing is on it. After printing about 10 times last night, I got only 2 that came out with anything. However, everytime I put in regular paper, it prints fine. Any ideas?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Every time I try to print anything, my WF-2530 feeds a sheet through and reports paper out. The unit has seen little use and has never had a paper jam. I have carefully loaded only a few sheets of regular 20 lb paper and it does it every time. I have done the same with some Kodak photo paper for inkjet and gotten the same results. It simply does not detect that there is paper loaded.

I have tried resetting the unit, powering off then on, disconnecting and reconnecting the power cord. Nothing causes it to recognize that paper is loaded after it feeds the first sheet through. Press the 'OK' button and it will feed another sheet and continue to report 'paper out'.

I don't want to replace such a lightly used printer. If I can correct whatever is wrong with the paper sensor it would be a blessing. Help!

Every time i try to print something with my Epson WF 2530, its says "paper out or loaded incorrectly" even when there is plenty of paper. there is no jam and when i try to print, the paper just shoots out blank. its been working fine for a long time and just suddenly started this between printings yesterday.
Is there any sort of reset?

im using Windows 8.1 and running the printer wirelessly.
any suggestions would be appreciated.

Reading up on it, I found that this printer has an auto-duplex feature, which lead me to the question:

How damp is the paper going to be after printing duplex, especially if I print with 50% - 100% coverage?

My initial conjecture is that it wouldn't be wet or curled, as it would be counterproductive to Epson's image to provide a printer with an auto-duplex feature that would drench the paper.

After doing a little bit of research, it seems that it's largely going to depend on the ink itself. According to macworld.com, "pigment inks...are made up of tiny, encapsulated particles that sit on top of the paper, instead of being absorbed into a paper’s fibers, which is what happens with dyes." The article further goes on to state that pigment inks are primarily for the purpose of longevity. Well, I'm not particularly concerned about it's longevity but I am interested in whether it's ability to dry faster than dye ink is justifiable for an investment in pigment inks?

A little more research revealed that paper quality is also a major factor (duh). Only issue is, I've already purchased a bunch of cheap 20 lb, 96 bright white paper and don't want to purchase paper separately for this additional printer (when I mean "bunch", I mean that I possess cases of paper in the double digits). Another reason I'm hesitant to make any move towards better paper is that it seems that the higher quality paper is designed to ... Read more

I run Windows 7 (64 bit) on an ASUS laptop and have recently bought (2nd hand) an Epson Stylus D 78 for simple printing needs. . I have downloaded the appropriate drive (Windows 7 64 bit) from the EPSON web site but while the printer chugs away and goes through the full motions of printing, the pages come out completely blank . I have cleaned the heads a number of times but am still unable to get it to print even a checking pattern . Since purchase I have inserted a new black ink cartridge ( the other colours seem OK ) so would expect that some impression would appear .
Does anyone have any thoughts as to whether it is a driver issue or whether I should consider physically checking the printer head to ensure that the nozzles are not blocked.
 

A:EPSON Stylus D 78 printer wont print

i suspect the other colours maynot be OK
But you should be able to do a clean and a head alignment from the printer - see if that prints out correctly

did you see the printer working before you purchased

also a lot of printers and particularly epsom, do often use the colour to print out just black text -

his printer is very slow but is great as I do not do a lot of printing however it suddenly showed a paper jam. I carefully removed the offending page ant it appeared to be all in one piece however every time I have tried printing since it shows paper jam I do not know how to get at the rollers to see if I can clean them or if there is something in there jamming it. Any advice would be helpful. Thanks BOBBYSGirl.

I purchased this printer about 2 years ago, so of course it is out of warranty! I have contacted Epson and got blah blah, the same obvious thing that is in the manual. Here finally, is my problem. the printer started kicking out a blank page between printed pages every so often, then it started kicking out 2 blank pages and stooping with the maintenance light on. I would check the paper and find nothing wrong, I would push the maintenance button and the printing would proceed. Now I have reached the point where a printed page is the exception and a paper jam is the norm. there is no paper jam! just the light coming on. what I see happening is that the paper as it starts to feed, stops just short of where the printer head would start to print. I have checked the rollers and cleaned them to no avail. I know I can go buy a new printer, but it just frost's me to have to replace a printer thats less then 2 years old! Any suggestions? Thanks ahead of time! Rick

Hello all,

REALLY hope someone can help.
The RX620 is the ONLY printer scanner that I know of that can scan large, clear images from 35mm slides. I NEED NED NEED that; which is why I searched high and low to get this printer.
***OK***
I just set up this RX620 (as/per instructions: NOT hooked to computer yet). Therefor the fact that I have a brand new iMac ... 3.06 GHz Intel Core Pro Duo ... OSX 10.6.4 has nothing to do with my problem. I am asked to supply that info here though.

IMMEDIATELY, upon turning on printer and running (as/per instructions) some paper through, it began grabbing and mis-feeding paper (1 sheet at a time from my 4 0r 5 sheets in the tray). It pulled paper at an angle, sending it through crumpled. MIS-FEED.

I cleared that, checked tray and paper situation - all looked good. tried again; same results.
NOW (after 4 or 5 more attempts ...w/ and w/out the COLOR button trick ...and then the B&W + STOP buttons RESET trick, I get: BAD SQUEAL NOISE at start and "Printer Error occurred - Please see documentation" in window of printer. NOTHING in documentation addresses a fix for this. NOTHING I can think to do gets me beyond this point.

btw:
*Yes, ink cartridges correctly inserted, moved back in correct position; unit completely closed. NO paper or pieces of paper remain inside printer feed area.etc. etc.

I'm using a Toshiba Satellite laptop running Windows Vista. I have also been successfully using an HP Photosmart B209a "all in one" printer with a wireless connection. I began getting low ink messages, so installed new HP cartridges. When I try to align the new cartridges, I get a message that says the alignment failed, but I can still use the printer. However, when I try to print any document I have generated on my computer, the printer picks up the paper and goes through the machinations of printing, but when it spits out the paper, it is blank. When I print a test page, it works. When I print a page from a website, it works. It will copy a document. It simply won't print anything I generate using my word processor or spreadsheet (I use Microsoft Works).

HP's Monitor program says that the computer is ready.

I have used HP Solutions Center, but nothing it suggests has made any difference. I have checked my wireless connection and it is working, obviously, or the printer wouldn't be getting the message to print, as it surely is, since it starts, picks up the paper and goes through the whole process of printing. However, nothing comes out except a blank piece of paper.

Hope you can help.

This question relates to the Epson Stylus C82 Ink Jet printer. I've had it for a couple of years, always worked fine. Last week, since the black ink had run out, I replaced it. It went through the whole ink charging routine, and the ink monitor says the black ink is now full.

So far so good.

But when I went to print something, the page comes out blank. I've double checked all the settings to make sure there isn't some odd option selected somewhere.

This is the first problem I've had. So, anyone got any suggestions as to how I might get it working again? I know these printers are temperamental little buggers. I may as well try poking it or any suggestions since it would probably cost me more to bring it somewhere to be fixed than to buy a new one.

last night, I posted a new post, same tittle, and 24 hours later, it is not here. So here's a repost:
Everytime I reinstall a black ink cartridge, it does not work. After fiddling with the utility, ie.
the head cleaner, adjust test page etc... Seems like the head is not reaching down to the paper. The thing is after performing all the cleaning and the trouble shooting, the cartridge shows the ink is going down. Now it's at 3/4 ink left without printing a single page. Windows does see the printer and send the print job to it. The printer in turn goes through the motion, but the paper comes out blank.
I am running Windows XP. Can anyone please help with this matter

Every time I change the black ink cartridge, the thing will not print. It's like the printer head is not touching the paper at all. It does go through the motion but prints blank. Or if I finally get it to work, It shows the brand new cartridge to be half empty and runs out after a few prints. But the color cartridges remain normal. This thing cost me $30 a pop as the black ink cost more than the color. I run the utility program: clean head, adjust etc... Does not work.

Hi Tech Guys,
I've called tech support and all they offer is run "Head Cleaning" in utilities for my printer. At first it worked but now the more I run the head cleaning the less its printing. I've checked the level of ink remaining as well. Everythings full.
I've bought a "Cartridge & Printhead Cleaner" but what part is the print heads in the following statement: "Allow print heads to soak in the Cartridge & Printhead Cleaner to refresh the print nozzles and help restore print quality"?
At one point it states to fill syringe with 2 ml. of the cleaner and squirt the print head over the sink....I'm thinking this is not something you can do with the printer itself put the ink cartridge and if deductive reasoning prevails I'm also thinking its the part that the ink comes out of, at the bottom.

I have an Epson SX200 Series printer and since upgrading to Windows 10 I occasionally get a strange set of symptoms:-

If I load a *.doc file I can print it OK. However, if I double click on a jpeg file and open it on the desktop and then select print......

I get the "We couldn't reach this printer" error.

Similarly, but slightly differently, if I "right click" on a jpeg file icon and select print, the printing process starts (a whirring noise) but then just feeds a sheet through and ejects it without printing anything.

By navigating to "Devices and Printers" I can confirm that the Epson has been selected as being the default printer. If I right click on it and select Printer Properties and then select the "General" tab and click on Print Test Page, it prints that OK.

I have tried uninstalling the software and removing the device and then reinstalling and making it the default printer without any success.

I have a REALLY bad paper jam... My printer is MF4350d. The paper jam troubleshooting outlined in the manual did not help. When I opened up the toner area and the back end of the printer, I can't see see the paper at all. It looks like the paper is jammed in area that I don't know how to access to (if I can, aside from taking the whole printer apart).

Does anyone know any way to fix this problem? :/ The paper that got stuck was a label paper. I know for sure it is stuck because the paper did not come out at all. The WHOLE paper got stuck. The label paper half half label peeled off. I am assuming that the reason it might have curled up in the printer is due to the disappearance of that half label? :/

The label paper is a regular size paper with 2 labels divided evenly on the paper.

Is taking the printer apart the only way? (is that even safe/good to do on my own part?)

Please help thank you very much.

I think this is similar to the thread
HP 2575 Printer Paper Jam Error w/no paper jam
I was trying to print 2 sheets double sided (manually).
Side 1 printed, I reoriented the sheet, pressed OK, then the paper jammed.
I removed the jammed paper, which tore during removal
I tried to reprint the two sheets, and printed side one, then got a papre jam message before the reoriented paper was taken up!
I have tried powering off and disconnecting the printer, and now have a "permanent" paper jam message.
Can anyone tell me where the sensors are on this model? I suspect "chad" (yes, I really am old enough to know the problems chad can cause).
Unfortunately, I'm also partially sighted, so I need pretty clear instructions on where to look forthe chad.
Can anyone help please?

I have an epson 777 printer that isn't operating properly. A few months ago my daughter was printing out a paper when there was a paper jam. instead of pulling the paper through the printer she paniced and tried to pull the paper out from the back side of the printer. Every since then when I try to print it gives me an error that says that the paper isn't loaded correctly. After pusing the maintanance button it gives me the same error. Can I do any thing to correct the problem? Or will I have to buy a new printer?
 

A:epson 777 paper jam

Hi there
Try taking out all of the paper out from the feed tray and opening up its lid, just like when you're changing cartriges and look around inside. Most likely there is a piece of paper stuck in between rollers inside. If you do find paper stuck inside, try pulling gently on it from the front. If you cant grasp it, you can use pair of tweezers or something but make sure not to jam it into anything...

Good luck, hope this helps...

I've loaded my new HP printer software with a cd that came with it. I go to print and it prints fine. If I turn my computer off and restart it keeps saying to "add" a printer and I can't print again until I load the software again.

Why can't the program "stay" on my system? Why do I have to uninstall and re-install each time I turn on my computer?? Very frustrating.
 

A:Have to install printer EVERY time to print??

It should stay on your computer! And be listed in the programs file. Are you sure you installed it correctly?
