Question about Epson Stylus Photo R1800 InkJet Printer
After cleaning and running a nozzle check I still had a clog so I cleaned it again, up popped an error message, the paper jam and the ink buttons both are flashing and the green power light goes out. ( the error message says parts inside your printer are at the end of their service life call epson).I tried the suggestion for the cx6600 but I have noticed that the buttons on the r1800 are not the same and it has not worked for me. Is there anything I can do to fix this? thanks Doug
Hi Minolta man. This is a very common message on ALL Epson ink jets. The printer has a "protection" counter inside which monitors the amount of ink pumped into the waste pads in the base of the machine. After a while the counter will hit it's pre-determined limit and light up like a christmas tree and stop you from printing any more. MANY repair centres will tell you (and I believe even Epson have said) this error is not worth fixing. Well it is and it's SOOOOooooooo easy. What you need is a piece of software to reset the counter, some instruction on how to dismantle the printer to get to the waste pads, and more instructions on how to clean the pads. You can get a rescue kit that offers all this from http://www.TheServiceManualShop.com If you don't see thje one you need listed for your model, drop them an email and they will create one for you. The file is delivered by instant download too, so you can crack right on with the job.
