I have looked up and down this thread but no mention of this particular problem with my R300.

Printer was working fine..printing 2 single sheets of T shirt transfers

It stopped printing with the error message on screen " paper not loaded correctly..close DVD guide "( it's not been used for 3 or4 months )

error on printer "paper not loaded correctly..re-load, press maintainance, etc......

The printer has not had a great deal of use so I don't think it can be down to wear and tear

Tried all I know ( precious little ) but nothing has worked. Epson's tech. help absolutely hopeless and just tried to sell me another printer.

Any suggestions any one?

Sometimes these printers get their firmware in a knot.

The first thing to try in these cases is to disconnect everything and leave it powered down for a half-hour or so.

Just turning the power switch off isn't enough — remove power altogether.

There may also be a connection somewhere in the printer either working loose or corroding, which can result in voltage/impedance changes that cause wrong signals to be detected.

This is common with electronics that use cheap components (read lower-range printers etc.) and don't get used a lot.

As you'll realise, solving these errors can be largely down to luck.
