Introduction 5 Loading Paper You can print on a variety of paper types in the sheet feeder, or use the manual feed tray for fine art papers (see page 8) and thick media such as poster board (see page 14). To print multiple photos, panoramics, and banners, load roll paper using the roll paper holders (see page 11). Loading Paper in the Sheet Feeder You can load the following paper types and quantities in the sheet feeder. Load other paper types in the manual feed tray (see page 8) or roll paper holders (see page 11).

Epson Premium Presentation Paper Matte Double-sided Epson Photo Quality Self-adhesive Sheets 1 sheet 6 Loading Paper

1. Open the paper support and pull up the extensions. 2. Open the front cover, then extend the output tray. 3. Insert paper, glossy or printable side up, short edge first, against the right side and beneath the tab. Then press the button on the edge guide and slide it against the paper (but not too tightly). Loading Paper 7 Always load paper short edge first, even for landscape printing. Load letterhead or pre-printed paper top edge first. Note: The edge guide moves slightly during paper feeding and printing. Do not adjust it while printing is in progress. Loading Fine Art Paper You can print professional quality photos on these paper types using the manual feed tray (see page 16 for available sizes): ■ Epson Velvet Fine Art Paper ■ Epson Hot Press Bright ■ Epson Watercolor Paper Radiant White ■ Epson Hot Press Natural ■ Epson UltraSmooth® Fine Art Paper ■ Epson Cold Press Bright ■ PremierArtTM Matte Scrapbook Photo ■ Epson Cold Press Natural Paper for Epson ■ Epson Exhibition Fiber Paper 1. Turn on the printer. 2. Remove any paper from the sheet feeder and close the paper support. Remove roll paper if it’s currently being used. 3. Open the rear support and extend it fully. 8 Loading Paper 4. Open the front cover, then push the center of the manual feed tray to extend it. 5. Insert a single sheet of fine art paper. Insert it short edge first with the printable side face-up. Note: Load paper short edge first, no matter which way your photo faces. Check the paper package for any additional loading instructions. 6. Feed the paper up to the line on the tray. Make sure the paper is flush against the right. Loading Paper 9 7. Press the OK button. The paper loads inside the printer. 8. When you see a message on the screen, close the manual feed tray. Push it in until it latches. 9. Extend the output tray. Note: To eject paper, make sure the control panel shows Ready and press the + button. 10 Loading Paper 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 across to avoid paper feeding problems. Note: 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. Loading Paper 11 5. Place the roll paper holders on each end of the paper roll as shown. The holders are labeled L and R (for left and right), as viewed from the front of the printer. 6. Open the rear support but don’t extend it. 7. Attach the roll paper holders as shown. Hook the holders onto the attachment points indicated with orange labels. 8. Feed the paper into the printer until it meets resistance. In a few seconds, the paper loads automatically. 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. 12 Loading Paper Removing Roll Paper Prints and Roll Paper 1. When printing is finished, you see this screen: Select Yes to print a cut line and feed the paper. (If you select No, you return to the Ready screen. Select this option to continue printing on the same roll.) 2. Use scissors to cut the paper along the cut line. 3. Follow the instructions on the screen to unload the paper. Turn the knobs on the roll paper holders backward as the paper unloads, then remove the paper and holders from the printer. Store unused roll paper in its original package away from high temperatures, humidity, and direct sunlight. Note: You can also unload roll paper whenever the control panel shows Ready by pressing the + button. Loading Paper 13 Loading Thick Media Use the manual feed tray to load 13 × 19-inch media that is 0.7 to 1.3 mm thick. Note: Be sure to leave at least 13 inches (32 cm) of space behind the printer for the media to feed through. 1. Turn on the printer. 2. Remove any roll paper or paper loaded in the sheet feeder. Close the rear support if it’s open. 3. Open the front cover, then push the center of the manual feed tray to extend it. 14 Loading Paper 4. Insert a single sheet of thick media. Insert it short edge first with the printable side face-up. Note: Never try to load media from the rear, or you could damage the printer. 5. Feed the paper up to the line on the tray. Make sure the paper is flush against the right. 6. Select Poster Board on the printer’s control panel. The paper loads inside the printer. 7. When you see a message on the screen, close the manual feed tray. Push it in until it latches. Loading Paper 15 8. Extend the output tray. Note: To eject paper, make sure the control panel shows Ready and press the + button. Do not extend the manual feed tray while printing, or you may damage the printer.

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. 38 Maintaining Your Printer Replacing Ink Cartridges You can purchase genuine Epson ink and paper at Epson Supplies Central at epson.com/ink3 (U.S. sales) or 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.

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 ■ UltraSmooth Fine Art Paper 325 gsm ■ Exhibition Canvas Matte ■ Photo Quality Self-adhesive Sheets ■ PremierArt Matte Scrapbook Photo Paper for Epson ■ Epson Hot Press Bright ■ Epson Hot Press Natural ■ Epson Cold Press Bright ■ Epson Cold Press Natural Maintaining Your Printer 43 The following media use Photo Black ink: ■ Photo Paper Glossy ■ Premium Photo Paper Glossy ■ Ultra Premium Photo Paper Glossy ■ Premium Photo Paper Semi-gloss ■ Ultra Premium Photo Paper Luster ■ Exhibition Canvas Satin ■ Exhibition Fiber Paper Select the Black Ink Type Switching black ink takes several minutes. Because it consumes some of the new type of ink, you should not switch ink more often than necessary. 1. Press OK to open the menu screen. 2. Press OK to select Change Black Ink.

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. Press OK to clear the error. Roll paper slot: Cut off any printed roll paper and then cut the paper close to the roll. Gently pull out the paper from the front or back (whichever is easier) and press OK to clear the error. Manual feed tray: Gently pull out the paper from the front or back (whichever is easier) and press OK to clear the error. If you still see an error message, turn off the printer and then turn it back on. 58 Solving Problems 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).

Solving Problems 61 Notices 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.

(“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. THE WARRANTY AND REMEDY PROVIDED ABOVE ARE EXCLUSIVE AND IN 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 LAWS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES. IF THESE LAWS APPLY, THEN ALL EXPRESS AND IMPLIED WARRANTIES ARE LIMITED TO THE WARRANTY PERIOD IDENTIFIED ABOVE. UNLESS STATED HEREIN, ANY STATEMENTS OR REPRESENTATIONS MADE BY ANY OTHER PERSON OR FIRM ARE VOID. IN NO EVENT SHALL EPSON OR ITS AFFILIATES BE LIABLE FOR ANY SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES RESULTING FROM THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE EPSON PRODUCT, WHETHER RESULTING FROM BREACH OF WARRANTY OR ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY. IN NO EVENT SHALL EPSON OR ITS AFFILIATES BE LIABLE FOR DAMAGES OF ANY KIND IN EXCESS OF THE ORIGINAL RETAIL PURCHASE PRICE OF THE PRODUCT. In Canada, warranties include both warranties and conditions. Some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, and some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitations and exclusions may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights and you may have other rights which vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction.
