Question about Epson Stylus Photo R800 InkJet Printer
I tried using continuous ink supply system for about a fortnight then I had a message that said "parts inside the printer are near the end of their service life". I took that system out and replaced it with compatible inks that I have faith in. The ink heads required cleaning then the darn thing stuck and still is. I took out the cartridges. The printer is a year old next month but Epson will have nothing to do with it as I used ciss and compatibles.
Thanks Inky, problem solved with Rescue kit as suggested.

The "Parts Inside Your Printer..." message related to the Ink Over Flow Protection Error and means the internal counter within the firmware has reached it's pre determined limit. You will need to reset the counter within the firmware with a special bit of software. You will also need to clean out the waste ink pads. You should be able to get a Rescue Kit for this problem from http//www.TheServiceManualShop.com Regarding the carriage - in what way is it stuck? If it is in it's home position, you should be able to release it by pushing the head lock back with your finger. It is located (I think) just to the left of the carriage on the vertical rail. A small white piece of plastic protruding from the rail. You may need to push the head to the RIGHT a little. If the head is stuck elsewhere and will not move in either direction by hand then look to see if the drive belt has jumped off the pulley. Also look to see that the head lock has not come forward and is preventing the carriage from returning home. Move the head to the left end (if you can) and look near the home position for the white piece of plastic protruding from the rail. Let me know if you still have problems
