Are you sure it is staurated or it just the printer showing the error. Apparently there is a usage timer in the printer firmware that will display this error after so many hours of usage. Epson has a small program to reset this error but warns that if the pad is saturated it may leak out onto you table/desk. My R220 displayed this error and I reset it with Epsons resetter program. If you are not sure of the pad, I would put something under the printer just in case it is saturated and leaks. I don't think you can buy replacement pads from Epson as they say the printer is disposable. I also don't know what material the pads are made of but I have never seen one overflo in all the years I have used Epson printers. There is always a first time so if I were resetting mine I would defininately put something under the printer to watch for leaking ink. The program to reset the ink counter is EpsonIPRUtility.A10.exe and is available at www.Epson.com

Turn off the power and look inside the machine to the right hand side. Just in front to f the print head you will see a white plastic dowel (see photo). Use something technical - like a finger, pen or screwdriver - to push this dowel in. You can then move the print head by hand to the middle of the carriage.

Once moved, turn the printer on and watch it travel back to the home position. If after returning home the dowel pops back out and does not retract itself, you will need to strip the machine out and rebuild the ASF section. Sounds hard but its just a few plastic parts to take apart and reassemble whilst looking to see if anything is broken.

Get a service manual; for the machine HERE if you need to strip it out.

It's quite complex, but the instructions can be found (for a price) here:

http://www.2manuals.com/product_info.php?products_id=638

I bought the instructions, but can't find a source of the pads. I am trying to clean my old ones, but they are pretty filthy. Please let me know where you got yours. Thanks. Rob.

SOURCE: EPSON 2200 - Waste Ink Pad Replacement

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.

Epson R340 does not feed paper or feeds it crooked so print is not square. Out of paper error when paper does not feed.


two things I would do, first carefully flip the printer upside down, (anything that looks like it can flap open, tape it well), and jiggle it slightly and see if anything falls out.

second, i would clean the pickup roller with an alcoholic pad or swab, if its not easily accessible, you will probably need to take the upper an middle casing off, which I dont recommend.

thanks adi

Printer send s message Life of parts ending


Hi,

The "end of life" message means that the waste pads are full of waste ink.

You need to either:
  • get the printer serviced at an Epson service center

    OR

  • install an external waste ink counter and reset the waste ink/protection counter.

All the information you need to install an external waste ink tank is available from here:
http://www.continuousink.info/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4096

Resetting the waste ink counter is easily done using the IPR utility which you can read more about and find downloads for, from here:
http://www.wasteink.co.uk/epson-ipr-reset/

Hope that helps..

It sounds like your printer has reached what is often called the "service required" stage...

To solve this you need to handle two things.

1. Get the printer protection counter (or waste-ink as it's sometimes called) reset.

2. Replace the waste ink pads OR redirect your waste ink flow to an external tank

It's important to note that Epson will encourage you to do a waste pad replacement through one of their service centers, but if you're out of warranty this will cost a significant amount of money (approx: $100 - 200)


To solve these as a DIY you can do the following:

1. Resetting the counter...
Get a resetter, either the SSC utility (google: epson SSC utility) or the IPR utility that Epson have now made available via their website here

The latter is only available to North American printer owners so the SSC is a safer bet.


2. Redirecting waste ink to an external container.
This is something I'd heartily recommend instead of trying to change the waste pads yourself... It's simple enough to do and a little googling using keywords "Epson R2400 waste ink tank" should get you all the info you need.

There are simple kits available that offer everything you need or you can easily go for a DIY with bits you have to hand.


Hope that helps...

Printer error


If it is the dreaded Service error, the SSC utility may or may not work but the 340 350 Adjustment Program will. Key to it after you install it is to set you computer date at February 1, 2007 before opening because the program expires on February 22, 2007. The first time you open it you must also close and delete a folder that it creates each used called ADJUSTMENT PROGRAM. Google it.
Also, if it is a WASTE PAD PROBLEM, it won't be solved just by resetting the counters. I did the "pull the hose out the back and ran the hose into a baby food jar" for my R200 and haven't had the problem since. Found directions for thid on fixyourownprinter.com. Just did the same for my R340.
