Welcome!
Your Epson Stylus® Photo R340 can print pictures directly from your digital camera’s memory
card. You can create true BorderFree® photos directly from your printer in a variety of sizes
just minutes after taking pictures with your digital camera. These photos are perfect for
placing in albums, framing, or sharing with family and friends.
If you want to save your image files, you can transfer them immediately to your Windows® or
Macintosh® computer and print them later from your PC.
Here are some of the printer’s outstanding features:
■
Epson’s exclusive 6-color ink technology lets you achieve fine shadow detail, dazzling
highlights, and excellent fill across a wide range of colors. Genuine Epson® ink and papers
create long-lasting and water-resistant prints.
■
CD and DVD printing on ink jet-printable CDs and DVDs, with or without a
computer.
■
Resolution Performance Management® (RPM®) technology optimizes the number and
placement of ink droplets on a variety of papers for superior photo quality and
performance, with manageable print file sizes.
■
Three built-in memory card slots support CompactFlash® Type I and II, Secure Digital,
MultiMediaCard,™ xD Picture Card,™ SmartMedia,™ Sony® Memory Stick,® Memory
Stick PRO,™ (Memory Stick Duo,™ Memory Stick PRO Duo [adapter sold seperately]),
and IBM® Microdrive.™
■
An extra USB port on the front of the printer lets you connect a digital camera
(supported models only) or an external storage device, such as an Iomega® Zip® drive or
CD-R drive. This lets you save your memory card contents to a Zip disk or CD-R and
access stored photos without a computer. (The port on the back of the printer is for
connecting the printer to your computer.)
■
A color LCD preview panel helps you select photos for printing.
■
Your printer also supports Bluetooth® technology (using an optional adapter) for sending
prints wirelessly from Bluetooth-enabled phones, PDAs, etc.

Loading Paper
Epson offers a wide variety of papers that let you customize your projects and achieve
professional results. This chapter gives you guidelines on:
■
“Loading Paper in the Sheet Feeder” below
■
“Storing Your Photos” on page 10
Loading Paper in the Sheet Feeder
1. Open the paper support and raise the extension.
2. Place your paper short edge first against the right edge of the feeder, under the tab, with
the printable (whiter or glossier) side up. If you are loading multiple sheets, fan the stack
of paper before loading it to prevent paper jams.
Note: Don’t load paper above the arrow mark inside the left edge guide. Some special
papers can be loaded only one sheet at a time. See your on-screen User’s Guide for
details.
3. Slide the left edge guide against the paper. Make sure it is snug, but not so tight that the
paper is bent. (For letter-size paper, you may not need to move the edge guide over.)
Letter
4×6

Pbasics.book Page 10 Monday, August 1, 2005 12:31 PM
4. Open the output tray and pull out the extension.
You should also follow these guidelines:
■
Always load the short edge first, even when you’re printing landscape-oriented pictures.
■
When using special papers, check the paper package for additional instructions. Some
papers require using a support sheet included in the package.
Note: Always keep unused paper in the original package and store it flat to prevent curling.
For instructions on loading special papers and envelopes in the printer, see your on-screen
User’s Guide.
Storing Your Photos
With proper care, photographs from your Epson Stylus Photo R340 will last for many years.
The special Epson inks designed for your printer are formulated to achieve improved
lightfastness when used with Epson papers for prints that are properly displayed or stored.
As with traditional photos, proper care will minimize color changes and lengthen display life:
■
For display, Epson recommends that prints be framed under glass or a protective plastic
sleeve to protect them from atmospheric contaminants like humidity, cigarette smoke,
and high levels of ozone.
■
As with all photographs, keep your prints away from high temperatures and humidity and
out of direct sunlight.
■
For proper storage, Epson recommends that you keep prints in a photo album or plastic
photo storage box in acid-free, archival sleeves commonly available from most camera
stores.
Be sure to follow any other storage and display instructions included in the paper package.

Card light
Caution: Do not eject a card while the card light is flashing or without performing the steps
described below, or you may lose data on the card. Be sure all cards have been removed
before unplugging the USB cable.
Connecting External Devices
If you have one of the following devices, you can connect it directly to your printer using a
USB cable:
■
Digital camera with PictBridge® or USB DP (USB Direct Print™) support
■
USB thumb drives (see http://support.epson.com for a list of compatible drives)
■
USB CD/DVD burners and drives (see http://support.epson.com for a list of compatible
drives)
■
100 or 250MB Iomega Zip drive, AC or USB powered
■
Memory cards with a commercially available USB adapter (such as the MicroTech™
ZiO!™)
Note: Epson cannot guarantee the compatibility of any cameras or drives. If you’re not sure
about your camera or drive, you can try connecting it. If it’s not compatible, you’ll see a screen
saying that the connected device cannot be used.
If you are using a Zip disk or a thumb drive, it must be formatted as a FAT16 disk. If you
insert a Macintosh-formatted Zip disk or thumb drive, you see an error message saying that
the inserted card cannot be used with the printer.

Accessing Photos
Pbasics.book Page 13 Monday, August 1, 2005 12:31 PM
Tip: When you connect a CD drive, you can also print photos from Picture CDs that you get
from your photo lab.
When you connect a digital camera or storage device, the printer treats it like a memory card.
Follow these steps to connect it:
1. Remove any memory cards from the printer.
If you leave a card in the printer, images will be read from the card instead of your camera
or storage device.
2. Connect the USB cable from your camera or storage device to the EXT I/F USB port on
the front of the printer. Some digital cameras require a special USB cable; if so, be sure to
use the one that came with the camera.
3. Turn on the printer and your camera or storage device.
After a moment, the printer reads and counts the number of images. When it’s done, your
images are available for printing (see page 17).
Note: If you used the Stylus Photo R340 to back up your images on a Zip disk, CD, or another
storage device (see page 14), they’re stored in folders (001, 002, etc.). Use the u and d
buttons on the printer’s control panel to highlight the folder you want to open, then press OK
to open it.

Pbasics.book Page 14 Monday, August 1, 2005 12:31 PM
Saving Your Photos to an External Device
If you don’t have a computer, you can save photos that are on your camera’s memory card to
an external device that you connect directly to your printer. This lets you delete the images on
your memory card and reuse it without losing your original photos. Follow the steps below to
save your photos to a Zip disk, CD-R, DVD-R, or thumb drive.
Note: Epson cannot guarantee the compatibility of any cameras or drives. If you’re not sure
about your camera or drive, you can try connecting it. If it’s not compatible, you’ll see a screen
saying that the connected device cannot be used.
1. Make sure the printer is turned on and the memory card you want to back up is inserted
in the printer.
2. If the printer is connected to your computer, unplug the USB cable that connects the
printer to your computer (otherwise files on the memory card may be copied to your
computer).

5. Press the d button to choose Backup and press OK.
6. Press OK. When you see the “Start backup” message, press OK again to start the backup
procedure. You may have to follow additional instructions on the printer screen. All the
photos on your card are copied to your external storage device. Depending on how many
photos there are, this may take several minutes.
Caution: Once the backup starts, don’t press any buttons on the printer or interrupt the
process, or you may lose photos on your card or drive. If you need to stop the backup,
press the y Stop button.

data. If you plan to print large numbers of CDs or DVDs, it’s a good idea to print a small
sample, then wait a day and check the quality to make sure it is satisfactory.
Before you insert a CD or DVD, make sure the printer is turned on. Otherwise, the disc may
not be positioned correctly.
Follow these steps to load CDs and DVDs into your printer:
Caution: If you don’t insert the tray correctly, you may damage the printer or tray.
Note: To print on small CDs (8 cm), you must print from EPSON Print CD on the computer. See
page 38.

Maintaining Your Printer
This chapter describes maintenance procedures to keep your printer working its best and
preparation steps for moving your printer. Follow the instructions here for:
■
“Cleaning the Print Head” below
■
“Replacing an Ink Cartridge” on page 47
■
“Aligning the Print Head” on page 50
■
“Cleaning the Printer” on page 50
■
“Transporting the Printer” on page 51
■
“Adjusting the LCD Brightness” on page 52
Note: You can also maintain your printer from the Maintenance tab on your driver (Windows)
or from the Epson Printer Utility (Macintosh). For details, read your on-screen User’s Guide
(described on page 8).
Cleaning the Print Head
If your printouts are unexpectedly light or faint, or dots or lines are missing from the image,
you may need to clean the print head. This unclogs the nozzles so they can deliver ink
properly. Print head cleaning uses ink, so clean it only if quality declines.
You can clean the print head either from the printer’s control panel or using your printer
software. To clean it using the printer software, the printer must be connected directly to your
computer (not over a network); see your on-screen User’s Guide for details.
Caution: When you don’t turn on your printer for a long time, the print quality can decline, so
turn it on at least once a month to maintain good print quality.
Follow these steps to clean the print head from the printer’s control panel:
1. Make sure the printer is turned on but not printing.
2. Press the Setup button.
3. Press d to highlight Head Cleaning, then press OK.
45
Pbasics.book Page 46 Monday, August 1, 2005 12:31 PM
4. To begin cleaning, press Print. The printer makes noise and you see a progress bar on the
LCD screen. Cleaning takes about 30 seconds.
Caution: Do not turn off the printer or interrupt the cleaning process.
5. When cleaning is done, press OK to run a nozzle check to confirm the print head nozzles
are clean.
Make sure letter-size plain paper is loaded in the printer, then press Print. The nozzle
check pattern prints.
6. Examine the nozzle check pattern you printed. Each staggered horizontal and straight
vertical line should be complete, with no gaps in the pattern, as shown below:
■
If your printout looks okay, you’re done. Press Back to finish.
■
If there are any gaps (as shown below), press OK and then Print to clean the print
head again.
If you don’t see any improvement after cleaning three or four times, check the solutions
beginning on page 57. You can also turn the printer off and wait overnight—this allows
any dried ink to soften—and then try cleaning the print head again.

Replacing an Ink Cartridge
You can check the status of the ink cartridges by looking at the icons on the control panel.
1. Press Setup.
2. Press d to choose Ink Levels, then press OK.
The level of ink shown on the icons indicates the
approximate amount of ink remaining. If an ink cartridge is
low, you see a caution symbol. This is a good time to make
sure you have a replacement cartridge.
If an ink cartridge is empty, you see a message on the display
telling you that the cartridge needs to be replaced.
3. Press OK, then press Setup to exit the Setup menu.
Caution: You cannot print if any ink cartridge is empty. Leave the empty cartridge installed in
the printer until you have obtained a replacement, or the ink remaining in the print head nozzles
may dry out. To ensure good results, use genuine Epson ink cartridges and do not refill them.
Other products may cause damage to your printer not covered by Epson’s warranty.
When an installed cartridge is more than six months old, you may need to replace it
if printouts don’t look their best. If the quality doesn’t improve after cleaning and aligning the
print head, you can replace the cartridge.
Use these Epson ink cartridges within six months of installing them and before the expiration
date on the package:

Aligning the Print Head
If your printouts contain misaligned vertical lines or horizontal banding, you may need to
align the print head.
You can align the print head either from the printer’s control panel or using your printer
software. To align the print head from the printer software, the printer must be connected
directly to your computer (not over a network); see your on-screen User’s Guide for details.
Note: For the best results, load letter-size Epson Photo Quality Ink Jet Paper in the printer
whenever you check the print head alignment.
Follow these steps to align the print head using the control panel:
1. Make sure the printer is turned on but not printing, and
letter-size paper is loaded.
2. Press the Setup button.
3. Press d to choose Head Alignment, then press OK.
4. Press the x Start button to print the alignment pattern.
5. Once the pattern is done printing, examine the first row or
set of boxes (marked #1). Select the box (1-9) which is most
evenly printed, with no noticeable streaks or lines. You may
need to use a magnifying glass.
6. Press r, press u or d to choose the box number, then press
OK.
7. Repeat step 6 to select the best box for sets #2, #3, and #4.
8. When you’re finished, press OK.
Cleaning the Printer
To keep your printer working at its best, you should clean it several times a year. Follow
these steps:
1. Turn off the printer, unplug the power cord, and disconnect the printer cable.
2. Remove all paper, then use a soft brush to clean any dust or dirt from the sheet feeder.
3. Clean the exterior of the printer with a soft, damp cloth.

Make sure the memory card or storage disk has
been inserted correctly. If so, check to see if
there is a problem with the card or disk and try
again.
Use a compatible, formatted memory
card (see page 11) or a compatible
storage device (see page 12).
Cannot recognize the device.
Make sure the memory card has been
inserted correctly (see page 11). If you
connected a USB device, make sure the

Cannot perform the print head cleaning due to
low ink level.
You need enough ink to perform print
head cleaning. Replace the ink cartridge
that is low.
Running a Printer Check
You may need to run a printer check to see if a problem comes from the printer itself or some
other source.
1. Make sure any memory cards are removed (page 16), then disconnect the printer cable
from the printer.
2. Make sure that letter size paper is loaded in the sheet feeder, the CD/DVD tray is not
inserted in the printer, and the CD/DVD guide is up.
3. Press the Setup button.
4. Press d to choose Nozzle Check. Press the r button, then press OK. The printer prints
the nozzle check pattern.
Diagnosing Problems
55
Pbasics.book Page 56 Monday, August 1, 2005 12:31 PM
5. Compare the quality of the printed check page with the sample shown below. If there are
no print quality problems, such as gaps or missing segments in the test lines, the printer
itself is fine. The problem probably lies with the printer driver settings, the application
settings, the interface cable (be sure to use a shielded cable), or the computer itself.
If the check page does not print satisfactorily, as shown below, or if it doesn’t print at all,
there is a problem with the printer. For example, if any segment of the printed lines is
missing, this could mean a clogged ink nozzle.
Setup or Software Installation Problems
The printer makes noise after ink cartridge installation.
■
The first time you install ink cartridges, the printer must charge its print head for about
two minutes. Wait until charging finishes before you turn off the printer, or it may charge
improperly and use excess ink the next time you turn it on.
■
Make sure the ink cartridge cover is closed completely and no packing material remains in
the printer. Turn off the printer, wait a moment, then turn it back on to clear the error.
You’re having problems installing the printer software.
56
■
Carefully follow the installation instructions on the Start Here sheet. Do not connect your
printer to the computer until you are instructed to connect it. Connect the printer cable
securely to the printer and the computer. Also make sure your system meets the
requirements on page 67.
■
Close your other programs, including any screen savers and virus protection software, and
install again.
■
If you are using Mac OS X and you do not see the printer name in the Format for menu
under Page Setup, you may need to set up your printer in the Print Center or Printer
Setup Utility. See the Start Here sheet for instructions.

■
With Windows 2000, if you see an error message or your software doesn’t install correctly,
you may not have software installation privileges. Contact your System Administrator.
■
Make sure Windows 98SE, Me, 2000, or XP was preinstalled on your system. The USB
Printer Device Driver may not install correctly if you’ve upgraded from Windows 95.
■
Make sure the USB Controller is working properly in Device Manager. See your
Windows help system for details. If it’s not working, contact your computer
manufacturer.
■
If you’re printing over a network, see your on-screen User’s Guide for instructions on
configuring your printer for use on a network.
Printer Problems
The printer is on, but nothing prints.
■
If you’re printing from your computer, make sure the USB cable is connected securely and
that the cable meets the system requirements on page 67.
■
If you’re printing from your computer, run a printer check as described on page 55. If the
check page prints, make sure your software is installed correctly.
■
If you’re printing on a network, you need to set up your printer for network printing, as
described in your on-screen User’s Guide.
The printer sounds as though it is printing, but nothing prints.
■
Make sure the print head nozzles are not clogged. To clean the print head, see page 45.
■
The printer won’t operate properly if it’s tilted or at an angle. Place it on a flat, stable
surface that extends beyond the printer base in all directions.
Your printer makes noise when you turn it on or after it has been sitting for awhile.
Your printer is performing routine maintenance.
The LCD panel and control panel respond too slowly.

Pbasics.book Page 58 Monday, August 1, 2005 12:31 PM
Printing is too slow.
Make sure your system meets the requirements listed on page 67. If you’re printing a
high-resolution image, you need more than the minimum requirements listed. You may also
need to:
■
Clear space on your hard drive or run a defragmentation utility.
■
Close open programs that you’re not using.
■
Increase your system’s memory (RAM).
For the fastest printing, try these tips:
■
Choose Black ink if your document doesn’t include color (except for black-and-white
photos).
■
Set the Quality/Speed slider to Speed.
■
In the Advanced options, turn MicroWeave® off and/or turn High Speed on.
■
If your printer is connected to a hub, disconnect USB devices that you’re not using.
Note: Borderless printing takes longer than normal, especially near the edges of the paper.
Printing without a computer is also a bit slower.
■
If you are printing a landscape photo without a computer, it takes longer for the printer to
rotate and process the image.
Your memory card does not work correctly.
58
■
If you’re using different kinds of memory cards, make sure only one card is inserted at a
time.
■
Make sure the card contains no more than 999 photos (or the last photos won’t display),
and that the photos are in JPEG or Uncompressed Tiff format and taken with a
DCF-compliant digital camera.
■
If you access the card from your computer and delete files, the card may not work
correctly with your camera. Always delete pictures using your camera.
■
If you’re using Windows XP, you may need to install your Windows storage device driver.

Important Safety Instructions
Before using your printer, read the following safety instructions to make sure you use the printer safely
and effectively:
■
Be sure to follow all warnings and instructions marked on the printer.
■
Use only the type of power source indicated on the printer’s label.
■
Connect all equipment to properly grounded power outlets. Avoid using outlets on the same
circuit as photocopiers or air control systems that regularly switch on and off.
■
Place the printer near a wall outlet where the plug can be easily unplugged.
Placez l’imprimante près d’une prise de contacte où la fiche peut être débranchée facilement.
68
■
Do not let the power cord become damaged or frayed.
■
If you use an extension cord with the printer, make sure the total ampere rating of the devices
plugged into the extension cord does not exceed the cord’s ampere rating. Also, make sure the total
ampere rating of all devices plugged into the wall outlet does not exceed the wall outlet’s ampere
rating.
■
Keep your printer and computer system away from potential sources of electromagnetic
interference, such as loudspeakers or cordless telephone base units.
■
Avoid locations that are subject to rapid changes in heat or humidity, shocks or vibrations, or dust.
■
Leave enough room around the printer for sufficient ventilation.
■
Do not place the printer near a radiator or heating vent or in direct sunlight.
■
Place the printer on a flat, stable surface that extends beyond the printer base in all directions. The
printer will not operate properly if it is tilted or at an angle.
■
When storing or transporting the printer, do not tilt it, stand it on its side, or turn it upside down.
Otherwise, ink may leak from the cartridges.
■
Turn off and unplug the printer before cleaning. Clean with a damp cloth only. Do not spill liquid
on the printer.
■
Use a soft, dry cloth only to clean the display and preview monitor. Do not use liquid or chemical
cleaners on these parts.
■
Always turn the printer off using the P Power button. It may take a moment for the printer to
shut off after you press the button. Don’t switch off the power strip or unplug the printer until the
printer is off.
■
Do not block or cover the openings in the printer’s case or insert objects through the slots.
■
Except as specifically explained in this manual, do not attempt to service the printer yourself.
■
Do not remove a memory card or turn off the printer while the computer and card are
communicating (when the light next to the card is flashing). Doing so can corrupt files on the
memory card. Use only memory cards that are compatible with your printer.

Pbasics.book Page 69 Monday, August 1, 2005 12:31 PM
■
If the liquid crystal solution from the display or the preview monitor gets on your hands, wash
them thoroughly with soap and water. If the liquid crystal solution gets into your eyes, flush them
immediately with water. If discomfort or vision problems remain after a thorough flushing, see a
physician immediately.
■
Unplug the printer and refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the following
conditions:
If the power cord or plug is damaged; if liquid has entered the printer; if the printer has been
dropped or the case damaged; if the display or preview monitor are damaged; if the printer does
not operate normally or exhibits a distinct change in performance. Adjust only those controls that
are covered by the operating instructions.
Ink Cartridge Safety Instructions
■
Keep ink cartridges out of the reach of children and do not drink the ink.
■
Be careful when you handle used ink cartridges; there may be ink remaining around the ink supply
port. If ink gets on your skin, wash it off with soap and water. If it gets in your eyes, flush them
immediately with water. If discomfort or vision problems remain after a thorough flushing, see a
doctor immediately.
■
Do not put your hand inside the printer or touch the cartridge during printing.
■
Do not move the print head by hand. You may damage the printer.
■
Install the ink cartridge immediately after you remove it from its package. Leaving the cartridge
unpacked for a long time before use can result in reduced print quality.
■
Do not use an ink cartridge beyond the date printed on the package. For best results, use up the
ink cartridges within six months of first installing them.
■
Store ink cartridges in a cool, dark place.
■
After bringing an ink cartridge inside from a cold storage site, allow it to warm up at room
temperature for at least three hours before using it.
■
Do not shake an ink cartridge; this can cause leakage.
■
Do not dismantle the ink cartridges or try to refill them. This could damage the print head.
■
Do not touch the green IC chip on the side of the cartridge. This may affect normal operation and
printing.
■
If you remove an ink cartridge for later use, protect the ink supply area from dirt and dust and
store it in the same environment as the printer. Note that there is a valve in the ink supply port,
making covers or plugs unnecessary, but care is needed to prevent the ink from staining items that
the cartridge touches. Do not touch the ink cartridge ink supply port or surrounding area.
■
Before transporting the printer, make sure the print head is capped in the far right position and the
ink cartridges are in place. Tape the ink cartridge holder to the printer case to make sure it remains
in the proper position.

Epson America, Inc. Limited Warranty
What Is Covered: Epson America, Inc. (“Epson”) warrants to the original retail purchaser that the
Epson printer covered by this limited warranty statement, if purchased and operated only in the United
States or Canada, conforms to the manufacturer’s specifications and will be free from defects in
workmanship and materials for a period of one (1) year from the date of original purchase. For
warranty service, you must provide proof of the date of original purchase.
What Epson Will Do To Correct Problems: Should your Epson printer prove defective during the
warranty period, please call the Epson ConnectionSM at (562) 276-7296 (U.S.) or (905) 709-2567
(Canada) for warranty repair instructions and return authorization. An Epson service technician will
provide telephone diagnostic service to determine whether the printer requires service. If service is
needed, Epson will, at its option, exchange or repair the printer without charge for parts or labor. If
Epson authorizes an exchange for the defective unit, Epson will ship a replacement printer to you,
freight prepaid, so long as you use an address in Canada or the U.S. (excluding Puerto Rico and U.S.
Possessions). Shipments to other locations will be made freight collect. You are responsible for securely
packaging the defective unit and returning it to Epson within five (5) working days of receipt of the
replacement. Epson requires a debit or a credit card number to secure the cost of the replacement
printer in the event that you fail to return the defective one. If your printer is being repaired, Epson will
direct you to send your printer to Epson or its authorized service center, where the printer will be fixed
and sent back to you. You are responsible for packing the printer and for all costs to and from the
Epson authorized service center. When warranty service involves the exchange of the printer or a part,
the item replaced becomes Epson property. The replacement printer or part may be new or refurbished
to the Epson standard of quality, and, at Epson’s option, may be another model of like kind and quality.
Epson’s liability for replacement of the covered printer will not exceed the original retail selling price of
the covered printer. Exchange products and parts assume the remaining warranty period of your
original product covered by this limited warranty.
What This Warranty Does Not Cover: This warranty does not apply to refurbished or reconditioned
products. This warranty covers only normal use in the United States and Canada. Using this product
for continuous production or similar high duty purposes is not considered normal use; damage,
maintenance or service from such use will not be covered under this warranty. This warranty is not
transferable. This warranty does not cover any color change or fading of prints or reimbursement of
materials or services required for reprinting. This warranty does not cover damage to the Epson product
caused by parts or supplies not manufactured, distributed or certified by Epson. This warranty does not
cover ribbons, ink cartridges or third party parts, components, or peripheral devices added to the Epson
product after its shipment from Epson, e.g., dealer or user-added boards or components. Epson is not
responsible for warranty service should the Epson label or logo or the rating label or serial number be
removed or should the product fail to be properly maintained or fail to function properly as a result of
misuse, abuse, improper installation, neglect, improper shipping, damage caused by disasters such as
fire, flood, and lightning, improper electrical current, software problems, interaction with non-Epson
products, or service other than by an Epson Authorized Servicer. If a claimed defect cannot be
identified or reproduced, you will be held responsible for the costs incurred.
