Question about Epson Stylus Photo R300 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Error - printer part are at the end of service life, see printing

I had the printer for almost 3 years but it was seldom used. Total pages printed might be less than 500 sheets.
I used 3rd party remanufactured ink all the time and it didn't have any problem. it was printing fine all the time.
Today I have an error message "printer part are at the end of service life, see printing manual for details".
How do I get around this problem? I know the print head is fine. It just cannot deteriorate so badly overnight. I presume the printer was programmed to send out the message after so many time used. I just want to use it until I determine it is at the end of service life instead of the machine telling me that. Very frustrated indeed. I use quite a few Epson inkjet printer before and used to have confidence with Epson but now I doubt I will buy it in the future.

I have had a R300 for a while now and had a few cartridges in it. Recently a message came up on the screen 'parts inside your printer are at the end of their life' and the printer refused to work!
After searching the web it appears to be a waste ink counter, but I could not find any info on resetting it.
So I tried pressing different combinations of buttons on the printer and success.

Press and hold 'stop' 'maintenance' and 'power' buttons for about 10 seconds, a message will come on the screen saying counter is reset and to turn off.

Thats it turned my printer back on and all works fine again.

I hope this helps R300 owners out!

Try this link:
Read the Billing Meter The total number of printed pages can be reviewed at the Printer Control Panel, on the Configuration Page, and in CentreWare Internet Services (CWIS).
Three meters are available:

  • Total Impressions
  • Color Impressions
  • Black Impressions
The billing meter counts the number of pages that were printed properly.
  • 1-sided prints, including N-up, are counted as one impression.
  • 2-sided prints, including N-up, are counted as two.

    NOTE: During 2-sided printing, if an error occurs after one side is printed properly, it is counted as one.
  • Color documents converted using an ICC profile on applications with the Color (Auto) setting can print in color, even if displayed in black and white. The data prints in color even if it seems to be black and white data on the Display Screen. In that case, the number of Color Impressions is increased.

    NOTE: Grayscale images printed with the composite black setting count as color pages because color consumables are used. Composite black is the default setting on most printers.
  • When printing automatic 2-sided printing, a blank page can be inserted automatically depending on the settings in the application. In this case, the blank page is counted as one page.
View the Billing Meters:
IMPORTANT: The Bill Meters track the total number of pages printed for the life of the printer; it cannot be reset.
To view the total number of pages printed:
  1. Press the [System] button on the Control Panel.
  2. Press the [Up] or [Down] arrow button until "Billing Meters" is selected, and then press the [OK] button. The Print Volume Report will be printed.
  3. Press the [Down] arrow button to scroll to the required meter. The number of printed pages is displayed below the name.
  4. Press the [Return] button to exit the Billing Meters menu.

Ok.. aside from the fact that you've posted under the R300 Epson model thread you're still in luck.

The CX6600 has been documented (by me admittedly) with a complete guide to fitting an external tank and resetting the waste ink counter in the printer.

Just to note: This is a commercial site but the information provided is generic and will help you fix the problem.
