I have had a R300M for a while now and had a few cartridges in it. (Mostly Compatible Cartridges not OEM) Recently a message came up on the screen 'parts inside your printer are at the end of their life' and the printer refused to work!
After searching the web it appears to be a waste ink counter, but I could not find any info on resetting it.
Tried pressing different combinations of buttons on the printer and success. (Found Ink counter reset)
Press and hold 'stop' 'maintenance'(ink button) and 'power' buttons for about 10 seconds,(while printer is on) a message will come up on the screen saying counter is reset and to turn off.
Thats it, turned my printer back on, and all works fine again.
I hope this helps R300/R300M owners out! (Also I have email into Epson Support, can't wait to hear what they say the problem is for the fix!)

You have a few choices on this one.
1. The SSC utility mentioned by Jacklee366 is usually the first port of call but it may not work in some situations. Worth trying regardless
2. Epson have an official reset utility which is available to North American printer owners who have a valid serial number (back of your printer).
You just fill out this form and you will then get access to the utility (the one eagleflh/bos_dsl is reselling with his kits)
3. You can also get access to the official service utility that service engineers use on these printers... A copy is available here.
IMPORTANT: This utility is a lot more powerful than the other two and requires a bit more hoop jumping but it can resolve the maintenance request very efficiently. Whatever you do, read the readme files and take your time if you opt to use it.
Hope that helps.

The waste ink pad needs to be replaced or cleaned AND the service software used to reset the internal counter. You cn download tthis online.
You have to dis-assemble the printer to get at the pad. You can clean the pad with agressive rinsing till it is a very light gray color. (A lot of ink will be flushed out!)
