Question about Epson Stylus Photo R300 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Long Lag between Print and Printing (sometimes)

Hi everybody,
I have an Epson Stylus Photo R310, .....Windows XP Pro

Sometimes not always , I click Print , see the Preview, and Click OK / Print and it goes to Spooler shows up as Printing and ½ hour later it still hasn't printed, ... do another print job from somewhere else and it lines up after the 1st one and still nothing happens,

I have turned off printer and on again and it's still the same .... sometimes if I try to print another job from somewhere else it will print.

But I had to delete the 2 previous Jobs.

I looked up Epson re new Drivers, But I don't know where to find the Current Driver , not in Device Manager ???

Maybe someone has suggestion Please .

Thanks in advance..... Ron

My Epson 1280 will start printing and then all of a sudden it makes a "clunk" noise and stops printing and I get an error message. It seems like its always in the same spot.


This has two ink cartridges 007 and 009. The black sometimes does not seat and lock in por becomes losse. Sometimes the lock in place tab becomes broken. If using Epson brand they have a chip in them that stops it from printing.sometimes and needs a reset progeram from Epson. best guess the cartrdige is loose.!

Make sure that you have the correct paper size set in your printer settings. Incorrect size would cause the problem you describe.

Epson R310 Non Epson Cartridge Warning


Essentially Epson should release drivers to resolve this issue. I am not sure there is a exact fix but according to recent US law paased within the last year or so, it is illegal for them to program this into there software. Call the customer relations or email them at

Not Printing some font


Sometimes, if you have a long USB cable, the information becomes corrupted. Try using a USB booster or a shorter cable.

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
