Hi--I had a BIG problem, day after day, fiddling with my Epson Stylus printer. The "General Error" kept repeating, and the two red buttons flashing each time I turned the printer off and on. There was nothing jammed at all. So, as a last resort I took a paper towel and ran it along the bottom of the inside of the printer (yeah--all technical jargon, I know--not a computer person here :-) and a bunch of black ucky stuff came up. MY PRINTER WORKS NOW! Hope this helps someone else. I saw a lot of posts where people said to throw out the printer and start fresh when my problem happened, but what an easy fix. GOOD LUCK!

    Wow. It worked! I've been wrestling with this for days and was about to give up. I had to turn it back on and wipe the far right side when the head was over on the left side and kinda hold the head away while I wiped furiously with a paper towel. Lots of black ink on the paper towel. I turned it of and back on and we are back to a green light. Thank you again!

SOURCE: Clean "Waste Ink Cartridge" Epson R300

Had the same problem. (its a work around without removing the waste ink pad)
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.

SOURCE: My EPSON STYLUS PHOTO R300 printer will not print

5 years sounds just about the time if you used it a lot. take it to service center. if it is the ink drain pad it'll cost up to 80 including job. if it just a counter it will give you another year to use it if they'll reset the counter.
i'd opt for a new one. but if you still have spare ink left then it is worth a try. good luck
