Failurre of the power supply .This is Switch mode Power Supply unit and it ispossible that the fuse blew off. But if replaced fuse blows then the surrge protector, the recifier, the filter main capapcitor or the OSC IC/ driver can be defective.
Check for spares or replace as a whole unit.( it is plug and push unit and can be DIY)

After years of using the same setup I get a communication error on my Epson r290.

Sounds like you have multiple drivers. On the MAC, go to the printer set up window in system preferences and select the r290, then go to the "-" minus icon at the bottom to dump the r290 from the list. Restart the computer with the r290 connected and see if the system recognizes it again in the preferences window. Hit the + icon to add it. Hope this helps.

EPSON R290 Status Monitor appears: SERVICE REQUIRED... Parts inside your printer are near the end of their service life. See your printer documentation. Can anybody please, help to solve this problem?


Late response but here's something that should help for anyone else looking...

Essentially the waste pads in your printer have reached a critical point (or rather the printer programming thinks it has) and you need to either get the printer serviced at a service center

OR... fit an external waste ink kit..

The latter option is covered in detail in this guide and if you check further you'll find that there's even a vidcap tutorial on how to reset the waste ink counter.

Hope that's useful to someone even if it's months after the original query...

(I have an excuse for my tardyness, he's 5 months old and very time consuming... as babies are :))

After I turn off my EPSON Stylus Photo R290, I can't turn it back on. I tried to change plug to power but still no avail. Please help me.


Download one of these programmes of adjustment here:

Unrar the archive on a folder named "R290" on "C:", then:
- Modify the date of the operating system: (01-04-2008). If you run the file LIMPIAR.BAT only verify that changes in the date has been made.
- Run the application and select the button "PERSONAL ADJUSTMENT" and select "RESETER INK PAD WASTED"

How to reset the counter of printer epson r290

I was going to say install SSC service utilty but it hasn't yet support for the epson R290 so you may have to wait for some time to get a fix as it only goes to R270 so no solution sorry.

Epson R285 need service utility

It sounds a lot like you have managed to reset the printer using the R290 adjustment utility and it now thinks that your printer is an R290 printer.

As a result it's rejecting the yellow cartridge (presumably the first to read empty since you reset the printer) and expects you to provide R290 consumables.

The only fix that I've heard suggested (and I'm still waiting to hear if it worked) if to get someone with a valid R285 to use the same adjustment utility to make a backup of the EEPROM data (nothing else), save this file, send it to you, and then for you to restore that same data to your own printer EEPROM.

As I said, I haven't heard if it works and I could be wrong about the cause but as I provide waste kits myself and have already had quite a few people report a similar issue I suspect I'm about right.

Hope that helps.
