Epson 4800 Roll paper set up....
« on: April 27, 2006, 03:05:53 PM »

I've followed the intructions for positioning roll paper in the Epson 4800 - pull it through to the end of the paper tray, roll it back to the guide point on the paper tray, pull the lever into the secured position. Then the printer is supposed to align the paper for printing. What's happening to me is that it doesn't pull the paper back, but rather feeds some more through so that it wastes about 2 feet before it starts to print. Am I missing something? It can't be designed to waste that much paper on each print!!

Thanks, for your help!

Cheers,
Hugh

that sucks
sounds very "Epson"

I have developed a trick to stop the perennial "RELOAD PAPER" time waster- when you get it right, put a tiny sticker as a marker under the edge of the paper, then every time you reload, just align to that sticker again!
