    Hi, All!

    I have the venerable Stylus Photo R340, which has begun giving me trouble. When I turn it on, it starts to run through the usual startup cycle, up-down, back and forth, whiz whiz, BUT---at some point along this, it hangs on the little white L-shaped doodad on the far right, where the heads go when at-rest. It gives a big "WHANG", and pops the message "A printer error has occurred. Please consult your manual." Once I turn the printer off, the carriage slides back and forth with ease. But during an otherwise normal startup, there it goes. Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    As suggested the manual would be a good place to start. What does the manual say about it?

    Turn it off and back on. :-\ If that doesn't correct the issue, contact Epson. That's not gonna do me any good.
