Loading Roll Paper
You can load roll paper for printing large images, panoramic images, or multiple
photos, with or without borders.
You can load 13-inch wide roll paper.
(See page 16 for a list of roll paper types and sizes.)
Tip:
It’s a good idea to check the ink status and replace cartridges, if necessary, before
printing a large print job (see page 37). If you need to replace a cartridge while printing,
you can continue to print but you might notice a color difference depending on drying
conditions.
1. Turn on the printer.
2. Remove any paper loaded in the sheet feeder.
3. Open the front cover, then extend the output tray.
4. Remove any tape and protective paper from the
end of the roll. Make sure the paper is cut straight

Avoid touching the surface of your paper.
With canvas media that you have previously loaded,
it’s a good idea to cut the edge straight each time you reload it.

holders are labeled L and R (for left and right), as viewed from the front of the
printer.

Note:
When loading canvas media, leave 2 to 3 inches of slack in the roll as it feeds and
prints for the best results. If you have trouble feeding canvas media, check that the
edge is straight and reload it, making sure to keep the roll slack.

34 Printing on CDs and DVDs
Maintaining Your Printer
Follow the steps in these sections to keep the R3000 Series working at its best:
■
“Checking and Cleaning the Print Head” below
■
“Checking and Aligning the Print Head” on page 37
■
“Checking the Ink Cartridge Status” on page 37
■
“Replacing Ink Cartridges” on page 39

“Cleaning the Rollers” on page 45
Checking and Cleaning the Print Head
If your printouts are faint or have gaps in them, some of the nozzles in the print
head may be clogged or ink may be running low in one or more of the ink
cartridges. Follow the steps below to check the print head nozzles.
1. Load a few sheets of plain paper.
2. Press OK to open the menu screen.
3. Select Setup, select Maintenance, then select Nozzle Check.
4. Press OK to print a nozzle check pattern.
5. Check the nozzle check pattern that prints to see if there are gaps in the lines.
Nozzles are clean
Nozzles need cleaning
6. If there are no gaps, the print head is clean. Select Finish Nozzle Check to
continue printing.
If there are gaps or the pattern is faint, select Head Cleaning (see page 36).
Maintaining Your Printer 35
Cleaning the Print Head
If print quality has declined and the nozzle check indicates clogged nozzles, you
can clean the print head. Print head cleaning uses ink, so clean it only if necessary.
Note:
You cannot clean the print head if an ink cartridge is expended, and may not be able to
clean it when a cartridge is low. You must replace the cartridge first (see page 39).
1. Load a few sheets of plain paper.
2. Press OK to open the menu screen.
3. Select Setup, select Maintenance, then select Head Cleaning.
4. Press OK.
Cleaning lasts around 2 minutes. When it’s finished, you see a message on the
LCD screen.
Caution:
Never turn off the product during head cleaning or you may damage it.
5. Select Nozzle Check to confirm that the print head is clean.
Note:
If you don’t see any improvement after cleaning the print head four times, leave the
product on and wait at least six hours to let any dried ink soften. Then try cleaning the
print head again. If quality does not improve, one of the ink cartridges may need to be
replaced. If that doesn’t help, contact Epson as described on page 61.
If you do not use your product often, it is a good idea to print a few pages at least once
a month to maintain good print quality.
36 Maintaining Your Printer
Checking and Aligning the Print Head
If your printouts become grainy or blurry, or you see dark or light bands across
them, you may need to align the print head.
Note:
Banding may also occur if your print head nozzles need cleaning (see page 35).
1. Load a few sheets of Epson Presentation Paper Matte (or the photo paper you
have on hand) in the sheet feeder (see page 6). It’s best to use matte or photo
paper for the most accurate alignment.
2. Do one of the following:
Windows: Right-click the icon in the bottom right corner of your screen
(the taskbar) and select Print Head Alignment.
Mac OS X: Open the Applications folder, open the Epson Software folder,
and open EPSON Printer Utility 4. Select your printer, if necessary, then
select Print Head Alignment.
3. Follow the online instructions to print the alignment check patterns and align
the print head as necessary.
Checking the Ink Cartridge Status
Your R3000 Series will let you know when an ink cartridge is low or expended in
the following ways:
■
The H ink light flashes when ink is low in one or more cartridges.
■
The H ink light stays on when an ink cartridge is expended. You cannot print
when an ink cartridge is expended even if the other cartridges are not
expended. Replace any expended cartridges before printing.
■
Your computer screen displays a message when you try to print. This window
can optionally display ink offers and other updates retrieved from an Epson
website.
Tip:
It’s a good idea to check the ink status and replace cartridges, if necessary, before
printing a large print job. If you need to replace a cartridge while printing, you can
continue to print but you might notice a color difference depending on drying
conditions.
Maintaining Your Printer 37
Note:
On a Windows computer that is connected to the Internet, you may see a screen
asking if you want to receive Epson offers the first time you try to print when ink is low.
Click Accept or Decline. To disable checking for ink offers or updates from Epson, see
the instructions in your online User’s Guide.
To check the ink cartridge status at any time, do
one of the following:
Windows:
Double-click the icon in the bottom right
corner of your screen (the taskbar).
You see the screen to the right.
Mac OS X:
1. Open the Applications folder, then open
the Epson Software folder.
2. Open EPSON Printer Utility 4.
3. Select your printer, if necessary, then select
EPSON Status Monitor.
You see the screen to the right.

Replacing Ink Cartridges
You can purchase genuine Epson ink and paper at Epson Supplies Central at
www.epson.com/ink3 (U.S. sales) or www.epson.ca (Canadian sales). You can
also purchase supplies from an Epson authorized reseller. To find the nearest one,
call 800-GO-EPSON (800-463-7766).
Use the following list when you order or purchase new ink cartridges:

Note:
We recommend that you use genuine Epson cartridges and do not refill them. The use
of other products may affect your print quality and could result in printer damage.
Yields vary considerably based on images printed, print settings, paper type, frequency
of use, and temperature. For print quality, a small amount of ink remains in the cartridge
after the “replace cartridge” indicator comes on. The printer ships with full cartridges
and part of the ink from the first cartridges is used for priming the printer.
For best printing results, use up a cartridge within six months of opening the package.
Caution:
Do not open ink cartridge packages until you are ready to install the ink. Cartridges are
vacuum packed to maintain reliability.
Leave your old cartridges in the R3000 Series until you are ready to replace them to
prevent the print head nozzles from drying out.
Maintaining Your Printer 39
Make sure you have a new ink cartridge before you begin. You must install new
cartridges immediately after removing the old ones.
1. Open the printer cover, then open the ink cartridge cover.
2. Squeeze the tab on the cartridge and lift the cartridge straight up to remove it.
Dispose of it carefully. Do not take the used cartridge apart or try to refill it.
Warning:
If ink gets on your hands, wash them thoroughly with soap and water. If ink gets
into your eyes, flush them immediately with water. Keep ink cartridges out of the
reach of children.
40 Maintaining Your Printer
3. Before opening the cartridge package, shake the package four or five times.
Note:
Cartridges make a clicking sound when you shake them.
Caution:
Do not shake the cartridges after opening the packages or ink will leak.
4. Remove the cartridge from the package, but be careful not to touch the green
chip on the cartridge.
5. Remove the yellow tape from the bottom of the cartridge.
Caution:
Do not remove any other labels or seals, or ink will leak.
Maintaining Your Printer 41
6. Insert the new cartridge into the holder and push it down until it clicks into
place.
7. Close the cartridge cover, then close the printer cover.
Wait for the printer to check the ink cartridges and charge the ink delivery
system, if necessary.
Caution:
Never turn off the R3000 Series while ink is charging or you’ll waste ink.
If you remove a low or expended ink cartridge, you cannot reinstall and use the
cartridge.
42 Maintaining Your Printer
Switching Black Ink Types
Your printer comes with Matte Black and Photo Black ink cartridges. Although
both must be installed for the printer to work, the printer can use only one type of
ink at a time. The printer will switch ink automatically, depending on the type of
media you load. This consumes a certain amount of ink, so you should avoid
switching ink more often than necessary.
To conserve ink, you can select the type of ink that is available by default (see
page 44). First decide which type of media you usually print on. Then, if
necessary, switch to the type of ink that works with that media.
The following media use Matte Black ink:
■
Presentation Paper Matte
■
Premium Presentation Paper Matte
■
Epson Premium Presentation Paper Matte Double-sided
■
Ultra Premium Presentation Paper Matte
■
Velvet Fine Art Paper
■
Watercolor Paper Radiant White
■

Problems and Solutions
Check the solutions below if you’re having trouble using your printer.
Printing Problems
■
Make sure your paper is loaded printable side up, short edge first, and all the
way to the right (see page 6 and page 8).
■
When using the sheet feeder, don’t load paper above the arrow mark on the
left edge guide.
Solving Problems 57
■
When using the manual feed tray, load only one sheet of compatible paper
(see page 8).
■
Make sure the paper size settings in the printer software are correct for the
paper you loaded.
Paper Feeding Problems
■
If paper doesn’t feed into the sheet feeder, remove the paper and fan the stack
of paper to separate the sheets. Reload paper against the right side and slide
the edge guide against it. Do not load too many sheets in the sheet feeder at
once (see page 6).
■
If paper dust builds up on the rollers, they may lose traction and become
unable to feed paper properly. See your online User’s Guide for cleaning
instructions.
■
If you can’t insert paper easily into the manual feed tray, make sure the paper is
perfectly flat and not curled.
■
Make sure the manual feed tray is not extended if you’re printing on roll paper
or with the sheet feeder. Extend it only to load fine art paper or poster board.
Once the media is fed into the printer and you see a message on the screen,
close the manual feed tray.
■
If roll paper doesn’t feed, cut the end of it straight across and uncurl the end
by rolling it backward, if necessary. Then reload the paper (see page 11).
■
If thick media doesn’t feed, make sure you’re loading it straight into the
printer and not at an incline (see page 14).
■
If paper is jammed, try the following, depending on how you’re printing:
Sheet feeder: Open the printer cover and remove any paper jammed inside.

CD/DVD Printing Problems
■
If the CD/DVD tray won’t load or jams in the printer, gently pull out the
CD/DVD tray and press OK. Reload the CD/DVD tray, making sure to
insert the tray correctly in the tray guide and align the arrows (see page 32).
■
If your image is not positioned correctly on the disc or does not cover the
printable area correctly, you may need to adjust the printing position using the
Epson Print CD software. See the online User’s Guide for instructions.
■
If ink smears on your disc, make sure you’re printing on ink jet-printable CDs
or DVDs and that the surface of the disc is dry. Handle printed discs carefully
and let them dry for 24 hours before inserting them in a drive. If necessary,
you can adjust the print quality using Epson Print CD software. See the
on-screen User’s Guide for instructions.
Print Quality Problems
■
For the best print quality, use Epson papers (see page 16) and genuine Epson
ink cartridges (see page 39).
■
Load the paper printable side up (usually the whiter, brighter, or glossy side).
■
Make sure your paper isn’t damp or curled.
■
Some papers can only be loaded one sheet at a time (see page 6).
■
Make sure the type of paper you loaded matches the paper size and paper type
settings in your printer software (see page 28).
■
Remove sheets from the output tray as they eject. Let your prints dry
separately for at least 12 hours before framing or placing in a protective sheet.
If you need to stack them, place a sheet of plain paper between each print.
■
If you notice light or dark bands across your printouts or they are too faint,
you may need to clean the print head. Run a nozzle check and clean the print
head if necessary (see page 35).
■
If you notice jagged vertical lines, run the print head alignment utility to
check and align the print head (see page 37).
■
The ink cartridges may be low on ink. Check cartridge status (see page 37)
and replace cartridges if necessary (see page 39).

Important Safety Instructions
Before using your R3000 Series, read and follow these safety instructions:
■
Be sure to follow all warnings and instructions marked on the R3000 Series.
■
Use only the type of power source indicated on the R3000 Series label.
■
Place the R3000 Series near a wall outlet where the plug can be easily unplugged.
■
If you won’t be using the R3000 Series for a long period, unplug the power cord from
the electrical outlet.
■
Always turn off the R3000 Series using the P power button, and wait until the
P power light stops flashing before unplugging the printer or cutting off power to the
electrical outlet.
■
Avoid plugging the R3000 Series into an outlet on the same circuit as a photocopier
or air control system that regularly switches on and off, or on an outlet controlled by a
wall switch or timer.
■
Do not let the power cord become damaged or frayed.
■
If you use an extension cord with the R3000 Series, 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.
■
Avoid locations that are subject to rapid changes in heat or humidity, shocks or
vibrations, or dust.
■
Leave enough room around the R3000 Series for sufficient ventilation. Do not block
or cover openings in the R3000 Series case or insert objects through the slots.
■
Do not place the R3000 Series near a radiator or heating vent or in direct sunlight.
■
Do not use aerosol products that contain flammable gases inside or around the R3000
Series. Doing so may cause fire.
■
Place the R3000 Series on a flat, stable surface that extends beyond its base in all
directions. It will not operate properly if it is tilted or at an angle.
■
Make sure the R3000 Series is at least 4 inches (10 cm) away from the wall.
■
Do not touch the flat white cable inside the R3000 Series.
■
Be careful not to spill liquid on the R3000 Series.
62 Notices
■
Except as specifically explained in your documentation, do not attempt to service the
R3000 Series yourself.
■
Unplug the R3000 Series and refer servicing to qualified service personnel under the
following conditions: if the power cord or plug is damaged; if liquid has entered the
product; if the product has been dropped or the case damaged; if the product does not
operate normally or exhibits a distinct change in performance. Adjust only those
controls that are covered by the operating instructions.
■
When storing or transporting the R3000 Series, do not tilt it, stand it on its side, or
turn it upside down; otherwise ink may leak from the cartridges.
Ink Cartridge Safety
■
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.
■
Do not put your hand inside the R3000 Series or touch any cartridges during
printing.
■
Install a new ink cartridge immediately after removing an expended one. Leaving
cartridges uninstalled can dry out the print head and may prevent the R3000 Series
from 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 R3000 Series. 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. Do not store the cartridge upside
down.
LCD Screen Safety
■
Use only a dry, soft cloth to clean the LCD screen. Do not use liquid or chemical
cleansers.
■
If the LCD screen is damaged, contact Epson. If the liquid crystal solution 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 doctor immediately.

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, Canada, or Puerto Rico, 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 Connection at (562) 276-7272 (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 the United States, Canada, or Puerto Rico. 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 Epson authorizes repair
instead of exchange, Epson will direct you to send your printer to Epson or its authorized
service center, where the printer will be repaired 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. 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 covers only normal use in the
United States, Canada, or Puerto Rico. 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.
64 Notices
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.

LIEU OF ALL OTHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES INCLUDING, BUT
NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY,
NON-INFRINGEMENT OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. SOME

In Canada, warranties include both warranties and conditions.
Some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, and
