Question about Epson Stylus Photo R300 InkJet Printer
Thewaste ink pad inside the printer is fully loaded with waste ink. You needto reset the waste ink pad chip. To do this you mast. 1. Press and hold "Stop", "Maintenance", and"Power" buttons for about 10 seconds. A message will comeon the screen saying counter is reset and to turn the printer off. TheR200 and others don't have a screen so just wait until the 10 seconds isup. 2. Turn the printer off, unplug the power cord. Wait about 1minute and power the printer back up. The counter will bereset. That's all there is to the reset procedure. 3. The waste padis actually full and ink is about to overflow, then you need to install a wastecontainer. You can see the waste pad by opening the access panel onthe back of the printer. Open theaccess panel on the rear of the printer (remove screw) You will see atube (down and to your left) coming from the cleaning pump and it willhave an open end on it. This is the tube that delivers ink to the wastepad. Use a piece of coat hanger wire or equivalent, and fish out this piece oftube. Bring it to the outside of the printer, thru the access panel. Findyourself a suitable container (Tupperware or a plastic cup or jar) that is nottoo tall. Put the tube into this container and secure the tube andcontainer so they won't come apart or lose connection if the printer is moved. Ifyou wish you can make a hole or notch in the access panel cover so it can bereplaced. Now the ink will go into this container and not into the waste padinside the printer. If it gets full, dump it.
