The R230 is not a European Epson Printer Model.
Therefore, it may not be listed in the SSC Service Utility model list. If not then please look for a version applicable to your Region. Feel free to try what I've listed below.

Please go to my website http://www.the-inkstore.co.uk . I have the latest version of SSC Service Utility to download directly onto your computer and instructions on how to use it, what to click on etc etc. Click any of the Epson links if you can't find it, everything you need to know will be there, including printer Firmware resetting which sorts out a multitude of problems.

The 'maintenance required' problem with Epson printers has absolutely nothing to do with which cartridges you are using, it is a built in page counter in your printer firmware, which has a different maximum amount for each Epson model. Don't listen to old wives tales and heresay, we are the experts and it's an Epson scam to cause a lot of people to pay for maintenance or throw their printers away.
I haven't found a model that can't be reset with the latest version of SSC Serve or the manual reset on my site.

For Epson RX500 users there is also a manual reset on my site, as the SSC Serve software won't do it for you.
When using the program & choosing your printer from the list, it may have a weird name with 'x' in the model number, this is because some configurations are for many models in a series. For example, the C46 will be listed as C4x as it is for the C42, C44 & C46 models.

I hope this helps all Epson users to overcome the Epson scam of page counting and locking out until you pay their dealers money for maintenance.

If you like what I've done for Epson users, please show your appreciation by spreading the word and perhaps buying your ink from my site.

Happy trouble free printing

Epson c44


If the green light and the red light is on (neither of them blinking), this means either you have an empty or faulty ink cartridge, or you have a paper jam. Replace both cartridges; is the problem solved? If not, make sure there are no shreds of paper jammed in the paper feed path anywhere. No? Then you need to get a technician to look at it. However, if you want to try dismantling the printer yourself to see if you can find the reason for the jam, report back and I can provide further information.
