Thanks for your selflessness Steve H. describing the RESET procedure for the Epson R300 by simutaneouly depressing the POWER, STOP and MAINTENANCE switches.
I checked with Epson, via telephone, and they recommended going to an authorized dealer for ink pad replacement (approximately $100) or buy a new printer ( $150 - $250).
After completing your suggested RESET procedure successfully - I went a step further and mopped up the excess ink that was evident on the 'black ink pad' which was saturated with black ink. I used Kleenex which seemed to mop up the excess BLACK ink nicely, and continued this mopping procedure until there was no evidence of black ink on the Kleenex. There was very little evidence of spilled ink on the color pads.
Time alone will tell. So thanks again Steve - you saved me $100 to $200.
Oh yeah! I LOVE this printer.

The printer has a waste ink pad, which basicallyis a plastic container with felt in it. When the printer cleansthe heads, either as commanded by you, or initially before printing,it spits out some ink into this pad. The printer remembers anapproximate count of ink that has gone into the pad in a "protectioncounter", and signals when the counter reaches a predefined limit.
Ofcourse, this pad has a limited capacity. Theoretically, you should takeyour printer to a service workshop for waste pad replacement andresetting of the counter - the printer is designed not to let the wasteink overflow and leak under the printer.
Of course the limit is setwith a safety margin, for a worst-case scenario, when you "pour" inkconstantly and it has no time to dry.
If you wantto be completely inline with manufacturer's specifications, andespecially if the printer is still under warranty, you should contactEPSON service to do the right thing.
If however you want to liveon the edge,you can download a special utility to reset theprotection counter, replacing the felt or cleaning it yourself, or - ifyou are even more adventurous - without replacing the pad altogether,counting on the fact, that the waste ink dries out all the time and inpractice the pad should accept twice as much as the producer assumed -but don't place your printer on that antique table or sofa afterwards...
If you want to give it a try, go to this webpage to download the software (TIP: DON'T be tempted to change any other settings, as you may render your printer useless):
