Question about Epson Stylus R265 InkJet Photo Printer
My Epson Printer R265 is 2 years old and now is sending a message saying that it needs service. The ink and papper lights keeps flashing. How can I bypass 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.
