If your PC is connecting to it normally (no connection errors), it sounds like you printer is having the service reset hardware problem. Try installing the EPSON reset software and check all counters and error codes.

You can replace the pads yourself.... I wouldn't really mess with it though. There are other ways Google search "Waste Ink Epson 2200" to see how to setup an external tank.. I have mine setup this way and its been no problem.... If you're set on taking them out remove the screws from the sides and middle and the bottom will drop away and reveal the pads.

Much as I'd love to say that Epson are being a bunch of "robbing gits" as you put it, in this instance they are actually helping protect your investment. If the printer was allowed to print without a valid ink supply on one of the ink types it would soon fill the printhead with either foam or air. Either promotes clogging. Now, whilst you might be certain that you're using just black, the printer may be programmed to use a small amount of the other colours (depends on the settings) so common sense often needs dispensing with. It's a pain in the backside, granted but it is intended to stop you from having much bigger issues later on. Appreciate that's not a "fix" but hopefully it explains why you're in the bind you are. My advice would be to purchase a cheap mono laser, especially if your printing it primarily of black text type... It's cheaper and you don't have to worry about consumables you don't use. Martin

well it shall depend on your operating system. there is an available download on the epson website and it is called the ink pad reset utility. if this process tends to detect and install your printer it will work again
the website is www.epson.com/ipr

Your machine is equipped with an ink dot
counter. The ink dot counter automatically
monitors the level of ink in each of the 4
cartridges. When the machine detects an ink
cartridge is running out of ink, the machine
will tell you with a message on the LCD.
The LCD will tell you which ink cartridge is low
or needs replacing. Be sure to follow the LCD
prompts to replace the ink cartridges in the
Even though the machine tells you that an ink
cartridge is empty, there will be a small
amount of ink left in the ink cartridge. It is
necessary to keep some ink in the ink
cartridge to prevent air from drying out and
damaging the print head assembly.
a Open the ink cartridge cover.
If one or more ink cartridges are empty,
for example Black, the LCD shows
Ink Empty Black and
b Pull the lock release lever down and
take out the ink cartridge for the color
shown on the LCD.
c Open the new ink cartridge bag for the
color shown on the LCD, and then take
out the ink cartridge.
d Remove the protective yellow cap (1).
If the protective yellow caps come off
when you open the bag, the cartridge will
not be damaged.
e Each color has its own correct position.
Insert the ink cartridge in the direction of
the arrow on the label.
f Lift each lock release lever and push it
until it clicks, and then close the ink
g If you replaced an ink cartridge, the LCD
may ask you to verify that it was a brand
new one. (For example,
Did You Change Blck?) For each
new cartridge you installed, press 1
(Yes) to automatically reset the ink dot
counter for that color. If the ink cartridge
you installed is not a brand new one, be
sure to press 2 (No).
If you wait until the LCD shows
Near Empty and Ink Empty, the
machine will automatically.
