Epson R285 need service utility


It sounds a lot like you have managed to reset the printer using the R290 adjustment utility and it now thinks that your printer is an R290 printer.

As a result it's rejecting the yellow cartridge (presumably the first to read empty since you reset the printer) and expects you to provide R290 consumables.

The only fix that I've heard suggested (and I'm still waiting to hear if it worked) if to get someone with a valid R285 to use the same adjustment utility to make a backup of the EEPROM data (nothing else), save this file, send it to you, and then for you to restore that same data to your own printer EEPROM.

As I said, I haven't heard if it works and I could be wrong about the cause but as I provide waste kits myself and have already had quite a few people report a similar issue I suspect I'm about right.

Hope that helps.

Why does everyone go quiet when I mention Epson r285 , 2 red flashing lights and service needed. Does no-one of you highly intelligent boffins know how to reset a simple printer. Ive asked and asked on...


Bit late in replying but this guide for dealing with the R285 has been up for a while now.

It tackles everything from installing a waste ink tank to resetting the waste ink counter.

Wrote the thing myself following quite a bit of interest... Hope it helps.

Ink not compatiable


Hi. When I fitted the second set of cartridges to my Epson Stylus Photo 1400, the printer failed to recognize any of them, even though they were genuine Epson! I repeatedly installed and un-installed them without success. After giving it a bit of thought, I had a hunch that the contacts on the cartridges might not be making good contact with the contacts on the printer as the cartridges seemed a little loose. I removed each cartridge in turn and after putting some adhesive tape on the opposite end to the contacts, (there are grooves cut into this end, but the tape drops nicely into them when you install the cart) replaced them all. (This had the effect of pushing the cartridges harder against the contacts). Switched on again and all carts worked fine. So it seems that even Epson can't make the cartridges to fit their own printer properly! Having said that it's a great printer otherwise. I hope this is helpful to you.

My epson r285 wont recognise compatable inks


My Epson R285 will not recognise compatible cartridges,mainly the black.I ran out of black ink and installed a compatible cartridge but it did not recognise it.To get the printer running I had to buy a genuine one which worked.I then ran out of all the other colours soon after and installed compatible ones which were accepted.I have now ran out of the black again but the printer will not accept the compatible cartridge.How can I solve this problem as the printer has accepted black compatibles before.
Thanks Padgy
