Did you refill them or buy refilled cartridges? Epsons all have a chip on the ink tank. once that chip registers a certain count it renders the cartridge dead. If it gets refilled it has to be reset, which 99% of the refill places don't do. It's also possible that the contacts on the carriage have worn down or been punctured. Also look in the back of the carrier and make sure you don't see any small holes in the white ribbon cable.

My Epson R265 is sending a message saying that it


If the lights are flashing alternately and slowly (with the power light off), then the waste ink absorbers are full.

The pads are near the bottom of the printer and can either be replaced (call the service department for the parts) or rinsed clean under running water. The hard part is usually extracting them (you need to disassemble the printer most of the time). Then (if reusing the pads, wait until they are dry) reinstall them and reset the waste ink counter. The reset requires a program such as the one available here: http://inkjetprinterhelp.us/epsonSSC.html . Do not run this utility until the pads are replaced, the ink will smear everywhere. Epson used to have a link for their own reset tool but I do not see it for this printer.

However, the printer is designed that under normally usage, the waste ink absorber will be full at the expected end of life of the printer. Thus additional failures may be coming.

I hope this helps.

My Epson Stylus Photo R265 is not allowing IJT Direct compatible ink cassettes to be used - they load into the printer OK. What can I do to make them work?


The compatable inks you use will depend on how old your printer is
Epson change their printer every few months changing the chips so if you have a very early printer you need the earlier chipped compatables

Hi, I have just changed the yellow cartridge on my R265 with proper epson ink cartridge and it is saying that it is incompatible. Can you help please?


Hi If you are using compatable inks try taking the ink cartridge out and put it back in again try this three or four times to see if it will accept it if not try a different cartridge you can sometimes get a duff one The earlier models have a different cartridge than the later models epson altered them and changed the chip

Epson r265 needs service


If the error says, parts inside your printer are at the end of their service life, the ink pad on your printer needs to be replaced. Then log on to epson.com/ipr to get the ink pad reset utility software. The software runs on win xp and win vista.

Service required


A "Service required" error means that the waste ink pads (sort of a diaper/nappy) in the base of the printer are considered full by the printer and it wants you to get it serviced to change them.

You, can take or send the printer to a service centre but it's likely to cost as much as the printer did originally and also it will require a change in the future.

More cost effective is to reset the counter using a reset utility and install an external waste ink tank.

The R265 utility is available here
(ALWAYS scan the file for any virus or malware infection!)

Once you've sorted that you then need an external waste tank... You can either make one yourself or buy a pre-built kit with all the info you need...

Google "epson waste ink kit" for a few options there.

Hope that helps.
