Question about Epson Stylus Photo R2400 InkJet Printer
Printer totally locked up and not even connected to computer - have unplug printer from power with out any results.
The ink-out and paper lights flashing alternately indicates the "service required" or basically ... "change my ruddy diaper, it's full of ink".
This is not as bad as it sounds and you have a few options:
1. Take it to a service center and have it serviced (ie: have the waste pads replaced)... It's expensive though so be warned.
2. Download the SSC utility (Google: SSC epson reset) and use this to reset the protection counter in the printer memory.
Note: READ the manual, it's not overly intuitive.
If you've gone with 2. you'll still need to do something about your waste ink and the simplest is really to modify your printer to redirect waste ink from the cleaning pump to an external tank.
Again Google is your friend so keywords like "Epson waste ink R2400" will find what you need. Some kits are better than others but then I'm biased :)
Hope that helps.
