Welcome!
Your Epson Stylus® Photo R320 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
albums or 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 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.
■
Ground-breaking 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,™ 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 preview monitor 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.
7
About PRINT Image Matching
Your Epson Stylus Photo R320 includes support for Epson’s revolutionary
PRINT Image Matching™ technology. PRINT Image Matching lets your
digital camera and printer work together automatically to produce the best
prints possible. Digital camera manufacturers that support PRINT Image Matching include
Epson, Casio,® Contax, JVC,® Konica,® Kyocera,® Leica,® Minolta,® Nikon,® Olympus,®
Panasonic,® Pentax,® Ricoh,® Sanyo,® Sony and Toshiba.® Check with your camera’s
manufacturer or visit www.printimagematching.com to find out if PRINT Image Matching
technology is included with your camera.
With PRINT Image Matching, the digital camera manufacturer can set specific printing
options for each camera model. These options include:
■
Contrast, sharpness, and brightness
■
Gamma level, color space, color saturation, and noise reduction
■
Shadow point, highlight point, and color balance
The camera saves this information in each JPEG image file (and TIFF files from
P.I.M. II-enabled cameras). Your printer—along with P.I.M.-enabled software, such as Epson
Software™ Film Factory,™ or the P.I.M. II Plug-in for Adobe® Photoshop® —uses the
information to ensure the most accurate image reproduction.
But don’t worry if your camera doesn’t include PRINT Image Matching technology—your
Epson Stylus Photo R320 gives great photo printing results.
Note: For information on printing P.I.M. images from your computer, see your
on-screen Reference Guide.
About Exif Print
The Exif (Exchangeable Image File) Print format includes information about your digital
camera settings in JPEG files so your printer and application can use them to create accurate
print settings. Most digital cameras store Exif Print information such as shutter speed,
metering, flash, exposure settings, resolution, and lens use in the JPEG image file. Your
printer—along with Epson Software Film Factory or P.I.M. II Plug-in for Adobe
Photoshop—uses the information to ensure the most accurate image reproduction.

Welcome!
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 12
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
Reference 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.)
4. Open the output tray and pull out the extension.
11
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 Reference Guide.
Storing Your Photos
With proper care, photographs from your Epson Stylus Photo R320 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.
12
Loading Paper
Accessing Photos
Follow the instructions in these sections to access your photos:
■
“Inserting Memory Cards” below
■
“Connecting External Devices” on page 14
■
“Copying Photos to Your Computer” on page 17
Inserting Memory Cards
1. Press the P Power button to turn on your Stylus Photo R320.
2. Open the memory card door.
3. Insert the memory card into one of the three slots, as shown below.
CompactFlash or
Microdrive
(left)
Memory Stick,

SmartMedia or
xD Picture Card
(right)
Note: Insert just one card at a time. See your on-screen Reference Guide for
supported photo file formats.
4. Push the card in carefully until it stops (it doesn’t go in all the way). When it is in, the
card light comes on.
5. Close the memory card door.
After a moment, the printer reads and counts the number of images on your card. When
it’s done, your images are available for printing (see page 19).
13
Removing Memory Cards

on removing your memory card.
Make sure the card light is not flashing, then pull the card straight out of the slot.
Card light
Caution: Do not remove a card while the card light is flashing; you may lose
photos on your card.
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!™)
■
MO (Magneto-Optical) drives
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.
Tip: When you connect a CD drive, you can also print photos from Picture CDs
that you get from your photo lab.
14
Accessing Photos
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 on your card. When
it’s done, your images are available for printing (see page 19).
Note: If you’ve backed up your images on a Zip disk, CD, or another storage
device (see page 16), they’re stored in folders (001, 002, etc.). Use the
and
buttons on the printer’s control panel to highlight the folder you want to open,
then press OK to open it.
Connecting External Devices
15
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).
3. If necessary, make sure your drive is plugged in and turned on. Then connect a USB cable
from your drive to the EXT. I/F USB port on the front of the printer (see page 14).
4. Press the Direct Save button on the printer.
5. Press OK. When you see the “Beginning 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 loose photos on your card or drive. If you need
to stop the backup, press the y Stop button.
To print images saved on your external storage device, follow the instructions on page 19.

the first time you’ve inserted a memory card, you see this
message instead. Follow the instructions on page 18 to
configure PhotoStarter.
On a Macintosh with Mac® OS X or Mac OS® 9, a drive icon appears on your desktop.
You can open the drive and copy your photos to your computer. If you have iPhotoTM and
you have it set to open when a digital camera is connected, it will open when you insert a
memory card.
5. When you’re done copying photos, remove the card as described on page 18.
Caution: If you access the card from your computer and delete files from the
card, add files to the card, or format the card, the card may not work correctly
with your camera and the printer may not be able to read the files on the card.
Always format cards and delete pictures using your camera, and do not copy files
to the card from your computer.

P.I.M. or Exif Print setting to automatically adjust your photos for the best results.
If your camera doesn’t support PRINT Image Matching or Exif Print, you can use
PhotoEnhanceTM to make adjustments for the type of environment in which your photos
were taken.
■
Manual adjustments (see page 25)
If your photos are too light or too dark, you can adjust their brightness or control the
saturation and sharpness.
If you want, you can make manual adjustments while P.I.M., Exif Print, or
PhotoEnhance are turned on in order to fine-tune your automatic settings.
Note: These settings affect only your printed pictures. They do not change your
original image files.
These settings are saved when you turn off the printer or choose a different set
of photos, so remember to turn off the settings when you’re done.

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.
If you want to check the print position or color, see the instructions for “Adjusting the Print
Position” on page 45 and “Adjusting the Print Density” on page 48.
Before you insert a CD or DVD, make sure the printer is turned on. Otherwise, the disc may

on-screen Reference Guide (described on page 9).
The steps in this chapter must be performed with the printer
in Advanced mode. If the printer is in Basic mode, press the
Basic/Advanced button to choose Advanced.
49
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 Reference 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, and the red
b error light is off.
If the red b error light is flashing or on, you may need to replace an ink cartridge; see
page 51 for details.
2. Press
to highlight More Options, then press OK.
3. Press
or
to highlight Head Cleaning, then press OK.
4. To begin cleaning, press OK. The printer makes noise and you see a progress bar on the
LCD screen. Cleaning takes about 30 seconds.

Maintaining Your Printer
If you don’t see any improvement after cleaning three or four times, check the solutions
beginning on page 64. 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.
Press the
to highlight More Options.
Ink cartridge levels
The level of ink shown on the icons indicates the approximate amount of ink remaining. If an
ink cartridge is low, the red b error light flashes. This is a good time to make sure you have a
new cartridge.
If an ink cartridge is empty, the red b error light remains on and you see a message on the
display telling you that the cartridge needs to be replaced.
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 even if the b error light is off.

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.
■
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 shown on page 75.
■
Close your other programs, including any screen savers and virus protection software, and
install again.
■
If your printer icon (SP R320 Series) doesn’t appear in the Macintosh Chooser, you may
have too many items in the Chooser. Delete any unused items and check the Chooser
again.
■
If you are using Macintosh 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 98, 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 Reference Guide for instructions on
configuring your printer for use on a network.

Your printer makes noise when you turn it on or after it has been sitting for awhile.
Your printer is performing routine maintenance.
The preview monitor and control panel respond too slowly.
When you have multiple photos or large files on your memory card, it takes longer for the
preview monitor to process them. This causes the monitor and control panel to respond more
slowly. Try deleting any photos you don’t need before you remove the card from your camera.
Printing is too slow.
Make sure your system meets the requirements listed on page 75. 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:
64
■

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.
76
■
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.
■
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.
Notices
■
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.
■
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. Epson also
warrants that the consumable ink cartridges enclosed with the printer will perform to the
manufacturer’s specified usage, which usage may expire before the expiration of the limited warranty for
the Epson printer. 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) 276-7282 (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. 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.
