Hi, please can anyone tell me have they come accross a problem with the Epson R285 where it just wont accept paper when trying to print? The last thing it printed it chewed the paper, i dont know if this makes a difference?

Perhaps you got some remnant of the "chewed" sheet left stuck in the printer. Close inspection might show where it is. You could try putting a lightweight card through the printer, with a little gentle push to help it on its way. This might dislodge any stuck material.

lightly spray wd40 on a sheet of paper & put it through the printer. DO NOT OVERSPRAY
Can anyone enlighten meon this one: epson have disabled panorama paper on the 285 because they no longer sell the paper. Can I fool the driver to allow me to print on panorama paper?

As above if it as bits chewed paper left in it will not work right, so you need to check fully. also rollers may be only picking up at one side check how it feeds, as something may be amiss
