How to get my Epson R2400 to print A4?

Hi there, I've had the R2400 for about a month now and I can't get the darn thing to print A4! It will print every other size but not A4! I'm using Photosop CS2 to print my images, but there are no options for A4 except for A4 roll paper?? I've set up my own A4 sizes but it still only recognises A4 rollpaper and acts as if there is no paper attached which of course there isn't!! Arrgghh someone please help!

Might be a silly question but have you installed the printer software for the 2400?

Do you mean it's not available in the Photoshop print set-up dialogue or the Epson driver dialogue, or both? Can you be more specific please. I've been through every combination I can think on my R2400 dialogue box and A4 is available on every one.

Hi Dan ,yep I've installed everything still no joy! My problem seems to be in page setup as whatever I do it sets the size as paper roll ! It's never done it before with any of the other printers I've used? Thanks for the help.

Are you selecting the right type of paper ? .. the paper option will adjust with different papaer types ...

When odd things happen with a printer - the best way forward is to reinstall your printer software from scratch. Either a setting has been saved unintentionally or your installation has got corrupted.

Give that a try and let us know how you get on.
