SOURCE: service life has ended on my epson stylus r320 photo printer

I have had a R300M for a while now and had a few cartridges in it. (Mostly Compatible Cartridges not OEM) Recently a message came up on the screen 'parts inside your printer are at the end of their life' and the printer refused to work! 
After searching the web it appears to be a waste ink counter, but I could not find any info on resetting it. 
Tried pressing different combinations of buttons on the printer and success. (Found Ink counter reset)

Press and hold 'stop' 'maintenance'(ink button) and 'power' buttons for about 10 seconds,(while printer is on) a message will come up on the screen saying counter is reset and to turn off. 

Thats it, turned my printer back on, and all works fine again. 

I hope this helps R300/R300M owners out!
(Also I have email into Epson Support, can't wait to hear what they say the problem is for the fix!)
Good Luck,
Steve H.  :-)

The erroris an ink overflow protection error and is fairly easy to rectify. Youneed to clean the waste ink pads in the bottom of the printer and thenuse some software to reset the internal counter. You can download allthis stuff from the link below:

A waste ink tank, does not stop the ink counter incrementing each timeink is used. All it will save you is the time taken to replacethe ink pads - which you can wash out and reuse anyway.

This usually means that the waste ink absorbers are full. If your printer is under warranty, you can get them dealt with and the counter reset at an Epson Customer Care center. If your printer is out of warranty, you should consider if it is worth the fix. You can get this done by Epson or an independent printer repair person. (They might sell the parts for a dyi job.)

Once that is done, you can get a reset utility from the following URL: http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/InkPadsForm.jsp . If you execute the reset without the pad replacement, you will get ink smearing on your documents after a while.

I hope this helps.

I have feint lines across photos and have done head clean. Epson Stylus photo R220.


Well, here's your problem: that's a six year-old printer. I used to have it and and 2007 I replaced it with an Epson Stylus Photo RX595 AIO because like the R220, the RX595 has the ability to print directly onto inkjet printable CD's/DVD's. Your printheads/nozzles are shot and all the cleaning in the world will not fix them and it's certainly won't be cost effective to have repaired when you can get a current model for less than the repair price. Mine went after two years. Honestly, it's amazing that this printer lasted as long as it has. Six years has to be some kind of record.
Here are the current CD/DVD printing models from Epson.

My printer is leaving horizontal streaks across


When I had the same problem, I found out, that Epson did not like Generic Ink. As soon as I replaced it with Genuine Epson Ink, it was fine.

Make sure you do Maintenance, Nozzle Check and Head Cleaning. You might be clogged?

Good Luck.

Epson r220 prints black lines through photos ect anything I print


The problem caused by waste ink at bottom plate arround head sprayer. Clean it. Turn off printer. Move head to center. Put wet tissue (with warm/hot water) upper head cleaning pad. Move head to right (parking position). wait for 10 minutes. Repeat it for 2-3 times. Check nozzle.

Hi

You need to clean the printheads or the nozzle check.

If you go to the printer properties you will see the options to do this.

Epsom R220 printing wrong colours


Print a nozzle check pattern then clean the heads until nozzle check pattern returns to normal. If you are using cheap **** compatible inks, throw them out and get some genuine stuff to run in the cleaning routine. Cheap **** compatible ink makes the situation worse when cleaning.
