Had the same problem.(this works but read carefully)
Took alot of work but I fixed it.
Frist thing you need to know that error means your ink waste pad is full. Its a $75.00 to replace but there is a work around it.
You will need this free app. SSC service utitlty.
http://inkjetprinterhelp.us/epsonSSC.html Its a great app.
Instrusctions are on the website there.
You will also have to Open the access panel on the rear of the printer (remove screw) and look inside carefullly with a flashlight. You will see a tube (down and to your left) coming from the cleaning pump and it will have an open end on it. This is the tube that delivers ink to the waste pad.
Use a piece of coat hanger wire or equivalent, and fish out this piece of tube. Bring it to the outside of the printer, thru the access panel.
Find yourself a suitable container (Tupperware or a plastic cup or jar) that is not too tall. Put the tube into this container and secure the tube and container so they won’t come apart or lose connection if the printer is moved.
If you wish you can make a hole or notch in the access panel cover so it can be replaced.

    sorry try this 1st.
    this is how to reset it try it 1st.


    • ress and hold “Stop”, “Maintenance”, and “Power” buttons for about 10 seconds. A message will come on the screen
      saying counter is reset and to turn the printer off. The R200 and
      others don’t have a screen so just wait until the 10 seconds is up.

    • Turn the printer off, unplug the power cord. Wait about 1 minute and power the printer back up. The counter will be reset. That’s all there is to the reset procedure.

What should I do, my Epson stylus R230 is not printing and the 2 red lights are blinking? What button on the SSC utility service should i click on?


Run SSC. Menu Configuration. Select installed printer. Select printer mode to Epson R220/230. Close dialog box by clicking cross sign at top right of dialog box. Icon will show at bottom right of dekstop. Right click, select protection counter. Show current value for checking waste ink counter. Click Reset protection counter. Turn off printer. Turn on again. Usually SSC doesn't work at Vista.
