Re: Epson R1800 Double image/Ghost image

Today my R1800 started doing the same things, so I came here did all the steps suggested - nothing helped, so I called Epson - here are the steps they gave me and it appears all is well.

1. Turn machine off and use a can of air and blow out the area where the paper actually feeds in - first time didn't work, then I also blew out and forced a piece of paper through the feed for watercolor paper - viola - it worked.

2. Print Head alignment - did the auto print head alignment - which now worked as the paper would actually feed correctly and low and behold all appears to be well.

3. I recommend unplugging and letting the printer reset itself as well.

I was about to trash it and go buy a new printer, which I really did not want to do. So before you chuck it out the window or pay someone to fix - try these steps.
