this is idicative of a waste pad counter overflow, the ssc printer utility can clear the inbuilt counter but if your using your printer a lot it would be a good idea to replace or clean the waste pad, its inside the printer and will bee messy but if your doing lots of prints it will be less messy than if it overflows
You have to check if the waste pad of the printer is full. If this occurs, you have to call a technician to replace it (or yourself can do , if you are able to). With the waste pad replaced, you can reset the internal counter with this program : http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml
This program can show you if the waste pad is full, or what problem is happening.
Let's Try first if it can print without using your computer just to check if printer is working fine by itself.
step1 Make sure its not connected to the computer and there is paper loaded on the printer. Turn off printer, press and hold paper button (middle button) then press and release the power button (right button). If you can see a flashing green light release your hold on the paper button.
If it prints by itself good go to step 2 if not check what lights do you see. Solid red light on ink light (tear drop button) means one or more inks is empty. Epson printer will not print if one or more ink is empty.
step2 Check if computer can detect printer goto start/control panel/systems/ click on hardware tab and click on device manager On device manager click on Universal Serial Bus controllers press on the "+" sign check if there is USB printing support on it Check if there is a mark (ie. ?, !, red x mark). If none good there is no conflicts. If there is a mark right click on USB printing support and click on update driver and install recommended
Try to find thge combination of buttons that reset the printer. there are many possiblities due to the modles - but try pressing any 2 and whilst holding them down switch off and then on again.
Also this utility could proce use full.
When it is loaded -right click the task bar icon.
