Question about Epson Stylus Photo R300 InkJet Printer
Probably the waste ink tank is full.Follow this procedure:
1. Press and hold "Stop", "Maintenance", and "Power" buttons for about 10 seconds. A message will come on the screen saying counter is reset and to turn the printer off.
2. Turn the printer off, unplug the power cord. Wait about 1 minute and power the printer back up. The counter will be reset. That's all there is to the reset procedure.
If the waste pad is actually full and ink is about to overflow, then you need to install a waste container.You can see the waste pad by opening the access panel on the back of the printer. Changing the waste pad requires almost complete disassembly of the printer, it is a big job. There is an easier way. Open the access panel on the rear of the printer (remove screw) and look inside carefully with a flashlight. You will see a tube (down and to your left) coming from the cleaning pump and it will have an open end on it. This is the tube that delivers ink to the waste pad. Use a piece of coathanger wire or equivalent, and fish out this piece of tube. Bring it to the outside of the printer, thru the access panel. Find yourself a suitable container (Tupperware or a plastic cup or jar) that is not too tall. Put the tube into this container and secure the tube and container so they won't come apart or lose connection if the printer is moved. If you wish you can make a hole or notch in the access panel cover so it can be replaced. Now the ink will go into this container and not into the waste pad inside the printer. If it gets full, dump it.
