Epson R3000 Is it that good?
I've only had my R3000 for about a month. During that time i've set 3 or 4 8 1/2"x11" photo sheets in the top feeder, and they fed fine. I've also had good luck with 4x6 photo stock and multiple cards and they fed fine. Well 2 days ago. i put 3 13"x19" 11 mil matt photo paper in the top feeder, and they all got fed simultaneously. When i checked the advanced paper settings, it was set on .3mm, which is ok i think. I'm still not sure what went wrong on this operation.
The 3 sheets together caused multiple print head strikes on the sheet that was printing, over an 8" long length. I wasn't in the same room to cancel the print. After the messed up print- i did a nozzle check and 4 of the cartridges had plugged up nozzles. Took 8 cleaning attempts over 8 hours to get the plugged nozzles clean and working as before. I'm pretty bummed out by this and doubt that i'll print multiple sheets again - its not worth the wasted time.
One nuisance - when i unload the canvas roll, i often get a paper jammed error, when no such paper jam exists. Requires several button pushing to correct the problem.
