Loading cut sheet Legacy Baryta in P5000
« on: June 27, 2018, 12:33:04 PM »

I'm having a difficult time loading 17x22 Legacy Baryta in the Epson P5000. Brand new purchase.

In another thread I read:  "Put the sheet into the feeder and press down till it stops, then push the "down" section of the "joystick". You're done." This is exactly the method described in the manual and this is how I am doing it. I am being very careful but at least 4 out of 5 times the printer stops- message says something like "paper jam remove paper." Then on the 5th or 6th try it works. Not sure if there is something wrong with the machine. I think it should be easier, more consistent.

Anybody else have this problem? Anyone have a solution? 

Thanks.

Normally with the thicker papers like Legacy, it's recommended to go the fine art feed method which you should be do through the front process.  It may be a little easier to feed since it's a larger sheet and make sure to line it properly.  The LCD will provide the instructions on this method and should work better.  Since it's thicker than photo paper, it may not be able to easily bend as well and can cause the "jam" issue.

Hope this helps.

I have fed large amounts of Legacy Baryta and other similar papers varying sizes up to and including 17x22 into the top feed of the P5000 with no issues whatsoever. The important thing is to press the paper down firmly enough, and evenly from both sides, until you hear a click. If you hear that click the mechanism will grab the paper properly and feed it through. If you don't hear it, then you haven't fed it in firmly enough and will get the kind of issue you report.

cool, iíve never noticed the click.  I always continue to put a little downward pressure on the paper until I push the button and it grabs it.  Problem is it sometimes slightly skews the paper.

Iíll have to try the click method :)

When I talk about a "click" it could just be the mild cracking sound you hear when the paper hits bottom as you press it down firmly (but not so hard as to damage the paper). The key thing is that you should hit bottom and hear a sound like a click or a crack in so doing. The you know it is firmly in place ready to be grabbed. And do it evenly to avoid skews.
