Well Rene its a sort of con trick by epson to make money from service. Get the ink tanks to pop out to the centre ( 0on startup of the run and take a torch and look back at the home base of the cassettes you should see a black square that is a sponge. carefully pick this up with tweezers or somthing that wont damage it.
Use blotting or kitchen paper and press the sponge in it to remove excess ink. wile the tray out and replace the sponge. Sometimes a small amount of like warm water and a few drops of bleach will dissolve the ink on the sponge.

Replace the sponge carefully ensuring it sits flat. repower the machine and it should now work OK You have just saved yourself $120 dollar service fee

please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Hi,

Turn the printer off, take out the cartridges, turn the printer on, reinstall cartridges. Printer reads cartridges as new.

Why this happens? I don't know if the rumors are true but check out this website and you'll find out.

Epson stylus photo r380 say call epson when i power on ihave the continuous ink system


It's probably one of two things... Either:

1. General Error : In which case it's likely that
  • There's something blocking the printhead path (eg: soiled paper jam, etc...)
  • The chips on your cartridge are faulty/dirty/etc...
  • There's a problem with a flat cable popping out of it's connector block or similar
  • or something more serious...
OR...

2. Service Required (ie: waste pads are considered full) in which case you can find out more information on what it means and how to deal with it here:

With a little luck those should help one way or the other

Error Service required


Epson programmed their printer to monitor the waste ink counter andyour printer has reached the maximum value allowed, you have to resetyour printer to clear the waste ink counter.

You may read the information regarding "end of life" and "waste ink counter" here: http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/InkPadsForm.jsp

To reset the counter, download re-setter program here, install and follow the instruction in the web site.

Colors on screen do not match colors in print have an SyncMaster 204b screen and an Epson Stylus Photo R380


You will have to keep collabrating the colors on your monitor until you get the right print out. If you're not using the right ink this will also throw off the print outs. Epson R380 is not really your avg high end printers so you will not get the best results. I suggest look for a monitor collabration software to correct your problem.
