Default Epson R300 Will not print

Printer is 5/6 years old. It prints ok using run of the mill copy paper. and i made calendars and greeting cards last year using 160 and 210 GSM photo paper and matte. Bought from reputable suppliers. Right now, as soon as I start print job, on 160 GSM paper, it will not feed, I get either error message, 'Paper Jam' or 'Paper not loaded correctly.' after several tries it finally works ok. However when I change to 201 paper it takes a dozen tries to print one Item. I cant find any bits of dirt or paper in the feed, have blown it out with Air, but still the same. I have tried several paper qualities from differnt manufacturers, but still same prob. Any suggestions please?

My best guess would be the rubber rollers which feed the paper have gotten slick from wear/dust accumulation/ age glazing. Sometimes, cleaning with alcohol will cure the problem, at least temporarily. You may need to get some cleaning sheets to run through it. I think Epson sells them on their website, or you should be able to get them from most suppliers.

Did you set it up in the software for the heavier paper?
