This could be the Ink Overflow Protection Error. If it is you may need to get a Rescue Kit for your machine form http://www.TheServiceManualShop.com Does the status monitor or LCD indicate that parts inside are past there service life?

... may work for some folks...


Can I just note though that "General Error" is rarely the same thing as "Service Required" and many folks confuse one for the other.

When my 320 showed a General Error after a print command I did the following:
Held down the Power and Stop buttons for 7 seconds ( the upper screen should go blank at the end). Then I unplugged the power cord for a few seconds and then plugged it back in and turned the printer power back on. That worked for me.
I think this relates to the life of the waste ink pad.

Epson R320. Had a "end of life" message so I held done the Power/Maintainence/Stop buttons for 10 secs and nothing happend. Held them again and unplugged it, plugged it back in and pressed Power and now...


The R320 is not compatible with the keypad press routine if I remember correctly so you really need a utility that can work with it.

I've had a quick check and found that the A10_IPR is capable of handling the reset for that model but for completeness here's the link for all the current info I have on the R320 in terms of resetting and fitting an external waste tank which you'll want to consider to avoid the printer flooding with waste ink.

Hope it's of some use but let me know if you're still borked after trying.

Get error message "Printer error: see your documentation and call service if necessary."


I found this on another website and it worked for me. It apparently resets the printer. Hope it works for you:

1.) power on (error message)
2.) press the "Stop (triangle)" and the "Colour copy" button and hold them
3.) press the power button to power off, still hold 2.)
4.) press the power button to power on, still holding 2.)
5.) the LEDs start to flash, then they stop to flash and the red exclamation mark starts to flash. Now release 2.)

6.) the LED should say: "Init EEprom"
7.) now press and hold the power button until the printer powers off and powers on again.

General error on my epson stylus photo r320-


Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
