You need to remove the following parts before you can remove and clean out the waste ink tank.
Paper support tray. printer cover. front cover Right and left housing abd usb port then the silver bar holiding the tray in place remove the screws from the tray and the waste tube and remove the tray
inside the tray you have a number of ink pads of different sizes
remove them clean off your tray and replace them with new pads or you can wash out the old pads dry them off with a hair dryer and reuse but it is a messy job when you finish you need to restet the printer.

Reset epson r265 printer


Actually it's just the waste ink pad inside the printer that needs to be cleaned or changed and often this pad is not full with ink at all and therefore the service indicator and waste ink counter can be safely reset. A niffty piece of free software is avaiable to do just this. Go to this site:http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml and download the latest version. Operating instructions are on the site and it's very easy to use. This will save you quite a bit of money for now but I would remommend that the next time a service warning comes up that you should then have the printer serviced as eventually the waste ink pad will become full and need cleaning or replacing.

My Epson R265 is sending a message saying that it


If the lights are flashing alternately and slowly (with the power light off), then the waste ink absorbers are full.

The pads are near the bottom of the printer and can either be replaced (call the service department for the parts) or rinsed clean under running water. The hard part is usually extracting them (you need to disassemble the printer most of the time). Then (if reusing the pads, wait until they are dry) reinstall them and reset the waste ink counter. The reset requires a program such as the one available here: http://inkjetprinterhelp.us/epsonSSC.html . Do not run this utility until the pads are replaced, the ink will smear everywhere. Epson used to have a link for their own reset tool but I do not see it for this printer.

However, the printer is designed that under normally usage, the waste ink absorber will be full at the expected end of life of the printer. Thus additional failures may be coming.

I hope this helps.

How do you reset the epson r265? I have 2 flashing red lights,


Two flashing lights means that you have a problem with your waste ink pads being full you normally get a warning first to say you need to have it serviced then your computer gets locked out
You need to replace your waste ink pads to do this you can either
take it to an epson service agent which will cost in the region of £50 or try doing it yourself when you have finished replecing your ink pads you need the printer resetting to do this you need a reset program you can find these free on the internet
If you need any help email me on drummerboy36uk@yahoo.com or throughmsn on thedrummerboy53@hotmail.com

Lookin to bypass service required for epsom r265


Hi, I have come across this problem with Epson printers in the past. What it is wanting you to do is send it in for a 'service'. Actually it's just the waste ink pad inside the printer that needs to be cleaned or changed and often this pad is not full with ink at all and therefore the service indicator and waste ink counter can be safely reset. A niffty piece of free software is avaiable to do just this. Go to this site: http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml and download the latest version. Operating instructions are on the site and it's very easy to use. This will save you quite a bit of money for now but I would remommend that the next time a service warning comes up that you should then have the printer serviced as eventually the waste ink pad will become full and need cleaning or replacing.
