Question about Printers & Copiers
I just purchased (only yesterday) an Epson Stylus r270, and I loaded a remote continuous device to feed ink.
The R270, was started to print really OK, with a very good standard, since some photos was appearing not much clear.
So I decided to use the printer functions to clean the nozzle and the print head.
In addition with an absorbent paper, manually I tried to dry from the ink, the black sponge below the head.
I did this operation with the print OFF, but when I made ON, the head went quick against the right side of the printer with a strong noise and the two red light, paper and ink, started to blinking rapidly.
I try to follow the instruction of the Adjustment Program, downloaded from the net, and following the suggestions, to open the right side of the printer to empty the waste (the thank was empty, not one drop of ink was coming out) , the red light was keeping on.
When the red light are on, the green one is off, but the light inside in the left side of the print is on.
With the Adjustment Program, I obtained all the time: ?FATAL ERROR CODE 0 x 50?
And ?CANNOT SEEK CR HOME POSITION?
I would like very pleased if you can help me.
Thanking you in advance,

I may have tripped across a solution to the ink carrier that doesn't want to behave.
I turned the printer off. Then, while holding down the Ink button, I also pressed and held the On button- and kept holding them. Somewhere in documentation I read that this would kick off some process, but I didn't remember what. It didn't turn on right away, but after 4 or 5 seconds of holding the buttons down, started up, went through some motions, and lo and behold, it landed on the spot showing me my cyan cartridge was out. Pressed it again, and it went to the cartridge change position.
I had to think about it, because I was now faced with breaking open a cartridge package worth $35 that could go towards the price of a new printer, and the printer still may not work, but I went boldly forward and it seems to be working fine.

Don't use nozzles clean function, besides ink consuming it can cause damages that cannot be fixed: black lines on the back side of the page that will be permanent. Instead put two photo paper together (2x260 gr) and push the two papers together into the printer while printing a motive including many colors. Do so a couple of times and the clogg usually disappears. Good luck! jonk

This error means waste ink counter is full.
1. Start with printer OFF
2. Hold down RESUME and then hold down POWER
3. Release RESUME
4. press RESUME twice, then release POWER
5. let green light blink until printhead has finished moving.
6. Press resume
