I was going to say install SSC service utilty but it hasn't yet support for the epson R290 so you may have to wait for some time to get a fix as it only goes to R270 so no solution sorry.

I have epson stylus photo R290 paper feed LED and Ink LED flickering the printer doesn't work how can i reset the printer counters plz


It depends on the light sequence if both the LEDs are blinking together then there is a error in the printer not due to Counter. But if the LEDs are blinking one after the other then this is for waste ink counter problem. Hence if you think for the 1st reason then you have to clean the media sensor present in the bottom of the carriage assy. But for the 2nd reason you have to use a program like SSCUltility to clear the counter you can find it here:

Read the instructions carefully before using it.

EPSON R290 Status Monitor appears: SERVICE REQUIRED... Parts inside your printer are near the end of their service life. See your printer documentation. Can anybody please, help to solve this problem?


Late response but here's something that should help for anyone else looking...

Essentially the waste pads in your printer have reached a critical point (or rather the printer programming thinks it has) and you need to either get the printer serviced at a service center

OR... fit an external waste ink kit..

The latter option is covered in detail in this guide and if you check further you'll find that there's even a vidcap tutorial on how to reset the waste ink counter.

Hope that's useful to someone even if it's months after the original query...

(I have an excuse for my tardyness, he's 5 months old and very time consuming... as babies are :))
