I just replaced empty ink cartridges, and reset and it goes thru the cycle and then at end it makes this gosh-awful metal screeching noise. I did the unplug, reset/maintenance/power button and it does same thing again. I recently moved and have not found the book yet and have no clue as to how to fix it. Any ideas?

How to unclog a unused printer cartridge


For your Kodak printer, you can follow the same procedure used for the HP Photosmart and Officejet printers which have removable printheads...just perform a quick 2-minute hot water flush on it:

1. Remove both ink cartridges.
2. Remove printhead (depress grey tab and pull out).
3. While the PRINTHEAD is removed, perform a hot water flush on the PRINTHEAD assembly:


Flushing Procedure: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=2412

a. Over a sink, run warm tap water directly into the ink ports for approximately 2 minutes - this will effectively saturate the foam ports and blow ink out/thru the nozzle plate bottom.
b. Using a lint-free towel, remove water from rear/bottom electrical contacts. Ensure printhead electrical contacts and exposed surfaces are fully dry.
c. Install the printhead into the printer. You may observe a "Replace Printhead message" so you will need to cycle printer power by turning printer off and then on to clear the error.
d. Install ink cartridges and retest printer. You should observe a New PRINTHEAD alert message followed by an approx. 4-minute preparation countdown prompt.

--- If you have reached this point of the troubleshooting and all the previous troubleshooting steps did not work, then the printhead is likely damaged or at end of life* and may need to be replaced.

How to install new cartridge


Make sure the printer is on and not printing. Have a new cartridge handy, as this installation should be done in one session.

Note if the "cartridge is low" or the "cartridge is empty" light is activated on the printer and follow the specific instructions carefully in the document below for each situation.

See "Removing and Installing Ink Cartridges" in the following document:

General error


General Error could be due to several reasons. Try to turn your printer on without the ink cartridges in it. Then turn it off and put the ink cartridges back in.

Clean "Waste Ink Cartridge" Epson R300


Had the same problem. (its a work around without removing the waste ink pad)
Took alot of work but I fixed it.
Frist thing you need to know that error means your ink waste pad is full. Its a $75.00 to replace but there is a work around it.
You will need this free app. SSC service utitlty.
http://inkjetprinterhelp.us/epsonSSC.html Its a great app.
Instrusctions are on the website there.
You will also have to Open the access panel on the rear of the printer (remove screw) and look inside carefullly with a flashlight. You will see a tube (down and to your left) coming from the cleaning pump and it will have an open end on it. This is the tube that delivers ink to the waste pad.
Use a piece of coat hanger wire or equivalent, and fish out this piece of tube. Bring it to the outside of the printer, thru the access panel.
Find yourself a suitable container (Tupperware or a plastic cup or jar) that is not too tall. Put the tube into this container and secure the tube and container so they won’t come apart or lose connection if the printer is moved.
If you wish you can make a hole or notch in the access panel cover so it can be replaced.

My Epsn Stylus PHOTO R300 says I need to replace an ink catridge however it does not tell me which one is out of ink. How do I find out which one to buy?


Hi,

If an ink cartridge is empty, the red error light will remain solid. You can check the status of the of the ink cartridges by looking at the icons on the control panel. Press the down arrow button to scroll down to MORE OPTIONS. The level of ink will be shown on the screen and the ink that will be out will have cross on it.

Please follow the steps below to replace one or more cartridges.

***NOTE***
-You cannot print if any ink cartridge is expended.
-Leave the empty cartridge installed in the printer until you have obtained a replacement.
-To ensure good results on your printouts, we recommend using Genuine Epson Ink cartridges. Epson does not recommend the use of refilled inks or 3rd party ink cartridges.

Once you start the ink cartridge replacement procedure, you must complete all the steps in one session.

1. Make sure the printer is powered on, and not printing.
2. Open the printer cover.
3. Do one of the following:

3a. If the red error light is on (cartridge is empty) press the MAINTENANCE BUTTON.
3b. If the red error light is flashing (cartridge is low) press the MAINTENANCE BUTTON. You will now see the Cartridge Replacement highlighted in Advanced Settings. Select OK.
3c. If the error light is off (outdated cartridge), press the DOWN ARROW MENU button to choose MORE OPTIONS. Press OK, then select INK CARTRIDGE REPLACEMENT.

4. You will now see a message on the display telling you that the ink cartridge replacement will begin. Press OK to continue. The print head will move to the replacement position.
5. Open the cartridge cover. Press in the tab on the back of the cartridge, and lift the cartridge out of the printer. Dispose of it carefully.
6. Unwrap the new ink cartridge. DO NOT touch the green circuit boards, or remove ANY labels.
7. Lower the cartridge into the holder, with the green circuit board facing the front. Gently push the cartridge down until it is firmly seated.
8. If you need to replace another ink cartridge, repeat steps 5-7 above.
9. Close the cartridge cover. Press the front corner of the cartridge cover forward to lock the cover into place.
