Epson UB-U03II not working


I had huge issues with my TM-U220. It does not play well with a Centronix-to-USB cable or with Windows 64-bit. I played for AGES to try and get it all to work.

I installed the USB device driver[1] I was able to print the Test Page proving that the connection between Windows and the printer sort of worked, but when I tried printing anything from Unicenta POS, it always failed.

I finally bought a new Centronix-to-USB and a new parallel port card, used Windows 32-bit, and problem solved.

They key is to uninstall everything, including searching through the Registry to delete everything.

Welcome to FixYa.

This occurs when the ink pad counter times out and is supposed to be a dealer service to drain the waste reservoir and replace the pad.


The only thing that you can do is try to reset the printer. Please do the following:
  • Turn off the printer by pressing the power button. Check to make sure that the print head is in the default position, to the far right of the device and locked in place.
  • Hold down the paper feed button. Turn on the printer by pressing the power button.
  • Release the paper feed button as the paper feed light starts to flash. Immediately hold down the ink-drops button for 15 seconds.
  • Wait for the printer to complete its test run. Turn off the printer and then turn it back on once more.


Thank you for using Fixya, keep me posted.

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.

Epson r285 uses all colors to print black


To print in black ink only mode on windows, please follow these steps:
  1. Right-click the drv_taskbaricon_1.gif printer icon in the lower right corner of your screen (taskbar).
  2. Select Printer Settings. A preferences window will appear.
  3. Click the Advanced button in the lower right corner of the preferences window (if you see a Basic button in the lower right corner of the window, skip this step).
  4. Click the Black Ink Only check box.
  5. Click OK in the preferences window.
If you’re using a Macintosh, you can’t set up the printer to print in black by default.

However, your printer will still use minimal amounts of color cartridges to prime the system when your printer is in the initialization stage when turned on. Your printer also mixes all the color cartridges to make up another black, that is to prolong the life of the black cartridges.

Try running the head cleaner function a couple of times.
That should solve your problem.
