Error E90 means that the waste ink pads are deemed to be saturated and need changing. This requires the printer to be dismantled. You can reset the waste ink counter as a temporary measure, but eventually you will start to get ink leaking from the waste ink pad area. The SSC resetting utility is available from here http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml, and the Epson resetter from here http://www.eserviceinfo.com/index.php.

To dismantle the printer you will need the Service Manual. I don't know of a source for a free copy, but if you Google for Epson R250 Service Manual you'll find sources selling it.

    From other sources, it appears the E90 error can also be caused by something obstructing the print-head movement. Turn the printer on, and as soon as the print starts to move, pull the power lead out of the printer, or turn it off at the mains. The print head should now be free to move by hand. Gently move it backwards and forwards to see if there is any obstruction. Look into the print head parking area on the right - does anything there appear to be causing an obstruction? Report back.

    Yes I was wrong - E-91 is the waste ink pad problem. The reason for E90 is not defined, other than contact Epson! So try checking the head movement as above. Otherwise I think it will need to be dismantled to try and find the problem, or, of course, giving it to a technician to look at, or even trying to get help from Epson (some hope).

Hi there All,
Another Solution which can be slightly messy is to lightly dab absorbent kitchen roll paper where the ink pad- sponge is visible,(it is visible, well some of it is) i used a small plastic spatula (about the size of a 10mm width screwdriver blade) plastic is safer, you need to to get in and press, not too hard just enough to get the ink to go into the kitchen paper , you may need a strong light to see while the scanner cover is up, try to hold the kithcen roll in position and you will see the ink being absorbed quite quickly,
i made a mistake while installing a bulk ink system of flooding my printer sponge with a huge ammount of ink, it will take an hour or so to do the job properly and to make sure you get most of the excess ink, leave some kitchen towel in the cartridge carrier too as it can be a problem in there,(dont forget to take it out when you reinstall the ink cartridges)another area you must try to remove the ink is where the cartridge carrier sits in standby to the right, turn off the power by the mains while its doing a system check so you can carefully slide the carrier to the left and under the far right is now exposed so carefully use absorbent kitchen roll and push it onto the sponge, like i said it will take some time and will probably get your hands looking a bit messy,
if it dont work the first time just let the kithen roll paper **** up the ink as much as it can,
this is the second time i have dealt with this problem, the first was a faulty ink cartrige that leaked and i got the E-90 error and just recently a ciss bulk ink system, (my fault) try it , this is providing the ink is still wet,if theres something more absorbant and easier to get in a small area then use that, i just had kitchen paper towel at hand both times, just make sure you remove everything before powering up and introducing new cartridges might save buying a new printer or expensive repair bill, dont despair !
I hope this can help someone in the same jam as i was,
The best of luck,
Steve.

    I appologise to all who have read my solution above , This is for the Epson Stylus Dx series printers with built in scanners, although i think the same method could be used on just the stand alone Epson 250 series printers and others too? its worth a try,
    Best of luck,

Tip

Manual Counter Reset Method


To manually reset the Ink Jet Counter that compels you to clean your waste pads. For the tip on how to clean your ink waste pads go here.

Please Note: In some cases, your printer may be leaking ink so much and so often that not only does your ink pads need cleaning, but you may need to replace the ink reservoir on your printer or you will have a leaking mess on your hands. This is a decision and judgment only you can make. If your printer is leaking quite of lot of ink, you may have to take it to an authorized Epson Repair Shop or Person. Find an authorized location by starting at Epson.com

The solution below is valid for most of the following printer models listed below this solution, some listed may not work, some not listed may also work it varies as this method is listed below is illegal for an authorized Epson Tech to release.

Thanks to the many user boards on the Internet for this solution that I know has worked for people I've helped here on FixYa.

Don't be discouraged if it doesn't work the first time. The key is in pressing the buttons exactly at the same time. So if this doesn't work the first time, try again and try again. Most people state they get it eventually.

[thanks to fixyourownprinter.com for the crux of this particular solution]

"Printer Onboard Control Panel Key Sequence"

"Press and hold the paper feed, paper switch and the power switch.

Once the power light and paper light flashes twice and the other lights are flashing release the paper feed and paper switch "and then press the paper feed switch".

The power, paper and ink lights will flash twice. At this point the protection counter has been reset."

Don't give up, if it does not reset the first time. The timing is tricky for some people.

Supported Epson Models that I am aware of, others not listed may work and some listed also may not work, it varies but don't be discouraged to try and try again.

You can also try the software download solution listed in this tip I posted.

I was printing a paper and all of a sudden thing thing came up it said contact epson E-90 how do i resolve my problem


An e-90 error is a fatal error with the printer itself, the only solution is to contact Epson if the unit is still under warranty. Otherwise I understand the fix is more cosstly than the printer. The error seems to be reported most when a new black cart. is installed, you could try reseating the cart, powering down the unit for 15 min and then plugging back in and see if that will reset the printer. You can also try the SCC reset utility....http://www.ssclg.com/download/sscserve.exe

Black ink will not print


You have submitted this problem in the Epson R220 area - it is unlikely to produce a response here. Try again putting it in the HP 990 area.

E-90 error at epson stylus pht 250


I see now that your printer is an Epson Stylus Photo 250. The error E90 is not defined, other than "contact Epson". However, other users have reported that clearing an obstruction fixed the problem. Try this.

Turn the printer on, and as soon as the print head starts to move, pull the power lead out of the printer, or turn it off at the mains. The print head should now be free to move by hand. Gently move it backwards and forwards to see if there is any obstruction. Look into the print head parking area on the right - does anything there appear to be causing an obstruction? Report back.

Ink not empty


You have confused the software in either changing a cartridge when not required or having a chip failure whilst changing multiple cartridges.
Full info on how to get out of this is on my site.

Please go to my website http://www.the-inkstore.co.uk . I have the latest version of SSC Service Utility to download directly onto your computer and instructions on how to use it, what to click on etc etc. Click any of the Epson links if you can't find it, everything you need to know will be there, including printer Firmware resetting which sorts out a multitude of problems.

The 'maintenance required' problem with Epson printers has absolutely nothing to do with which cartridges you are using, it is a built in page counter in your printer firmware, which has a different maximum amount for each Epson model. Don't listen to old wives tales and heresay, we are the experts and it's an Epson scam to cause a lot of people to pay for maintenance or throw their printers away.
I haven't found a model that can't be reset with the latest version of SSC Serve or the manual reset on my site.

For Epson RX500 users there is also a manual reset on my site, as the SSC Serve software won't do it for you.
When using the program & choosing your printer from the list, it may have a weird name with 'x' in the model number, this is because some configurations are for many models in a series. For example, the C46 will be listed as C4x as it is for the C42, C44 & C46 models.

I hope this helps all Epson users to overcome the Epson scam of page counting and locking out until you pay their dealers money for maintenance.

If you like what I've done for Epson users, please show your appreciation by spreading the word and perhaps buying your ink from my site.

Happy trouble free printing
