Epson Stylus Photo R300 My printer has stop


Hi,

I apologize for a delayed response as i was not at my desk.

I am sorry to hear regarding the problem.Unfortunately, this is a common problem on this printer.There is only one reset procedure that might work. Press and hold the ' Stop ', 'Maintenance ' and ' Power ' buttons for about 10 seconds.Then turn the printer off, and back on.

Note - You still need to get the ink absorber changed.

The repair is not economical as Epson would charge anywhere between $100 - $300 for repair. You could look for the below procedure to DIY :

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Error Service required


Epson programmed their printer to monitor the waste ink counter andyour printer has reached the maximum value allowed, you have to resetyour printer to clear the waste ink counter.

You may read the information regarding "end of life" and "waste ink counter" here: http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/InkPadsForm.jsp

To reset the counter, download re-setter program here, install and follow the instruction in the web site.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

You actually need to change the ink absorber.

Heres a video on how its done on the R800.

Please refer to your manual for proper localization of the ink absorber.

For epson stylus photo r300


Hi Anna,

After doing some searching, this was the best I could come up with:

Turn off printer

Press and hold 'stop' 'maintenance' and 'power' buttons for about 10 seconds. A message will appear on the screen. power off and back on for reset

Allegedly, this is a pre-set maintenance routine epson implements as a service reminder...though I could not confirm this one way or another. I hope this works for you, as the epson website seemed to be utterly useless in finding a suitable resolution.

Good Luck,
Jem

Printer stopped printing. Error message


Thjis is indication the Waste in collector pades need changing eventually.- but no now. you have plenty of warning
Reset Epson R300/200
press three buttons to reset the counters
The buttons are "STOP" "Maintenance" and "POWER"
or down load the epson utility www.ssclg.com and use the reset counter feature

The printer will sound like its going to blow up, but thats normal.

You can do this about 5 times before your printer starts to piss out ink over the table because the Waste Ink Ink Pad is full

To avoid eventual flooding go to rear of the machine- remove the little door and rake around for a small plastic pipe buried under some padding under the left side.
Fix to this a thin piece of ploythene tube[Fish tank air supply], extend it to our side the machine and place in a suitable container to collect the waste ink..
