Had this many moons ago and wrote a guide (which I update recently with pictures) on how to resolve it...

http://www.octoink.co.uk/store/pages/Epson-C86.html

The reset utility to fix it is linked to from the bottom of the article but you may need to use this utility instead if that doesn't work (see bottom of article).

It's not the easiest printer in the world to get into but if you can find a deep well of patience and a couple of hours to tackle this you should find it's more than possible and well worth the effort.

Good luck..
:)

Printer won't print. Check printer error message


To clear error messages displayed on the LCD or if the printer is not functioning as expected, it may be necessary to simultaneously press Stop/Reset and ON/OFF buttons.
  1. With the printer powered on, press and hold down the <Stop/Reset> button then press the ON/OFF button.

  2. Once the printer is powered off, hold down <Stop/Reset> and then press <ON/OFF>.

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


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!

Printer


You may have the printer settings set to pause accidentally or set to work offline. Go to printer icon, right click and scroll down to check all your settings, if any of above apply, untick them. Try again. The error message is telling you it cannot communicate with the pc. Have you updated anything on your pc, sometimes new systems settings, particulary windows updates and service packs can cause drivers to become incompatable. If all else fails, you could try getting updated drivers from the Compaq website.
