Epson R300 printer leaking blue ink on rollers

I have an Epson R300 printer that has been great. I have a continuous ink system installed and it has never given me any trouble. However, in the past couple of days, blue ink has been getting on 2 of the rollers which makes blue splotches on a page or a DVD when it passes through the rollers. I can't tell where the ink is coming from. I don't know why it only ends up on the 2 rollers in the middle. Any ideas?

How to install new cartridge

Make sure the printer is on and not printing. Have a new cartridge handy, as this installation should be done in one session.

Note if the "cartridge is low" or the "cartridge is empty" light is activated on the printer and follow the specific instructions carefully in the document below for each situation.

See "Removing and Installing Ink Cartridges" in the following document:

On my iMac 10.6, my Epson R300 printer will not let me know which ink cartridge needs refilling.

Try re-installing the newest driver, install Rosetta if you havent already. Then Remove and then Add the printer again in the System Settings. Works every time.
