RX620 printer will not scan--gives a hi pitched wail but no error message
I have used this printer for a long time and it always has worked well. Recently, while scanning slides, the unit gave out a loud fairly hi-pitched wail, but no error message! If I try to scan the wail repeats.

Are you often to used refilled cartridge? That's possible your waste tank has been fulled. Hold down the 'Stop' AND the 'B&W' button while powering up. This seems to clear the error message and restore the printer. Worked for me--dunno how long it will last tho!
You have to remember that the pads are designed to be ultra absorbent so it's going to be very difficult to get them to give up their ink unless you have something even more absorbent.
Trying to mop up or syringe out pads is really a bit of a losing proposition in terms of time, effort and ink mess so really the smarter option is to redirect the waste flow (ie: install an external tank) and allow the ink base (ie: water in the RX620) to slowly evaporate off over the course of the printers life..
If you need information on the process for the RX620 then you can find it here
when ever you want to refill ink make sure, that the ink you refill decompressed for about 30min before you fix it into the printer.
Another thing is that you uninstall the software of the printer and reinstall again, and check the power supply of the printer is working perfectly.

Try pressing down on the cartridges after inserting them and closing the top of the cartridge carriage. Worked like a champ on my R320 printer! Cleaning the contacts on the cartridge with a soft tissue may help too.
Its the operating system on the computer since it won't accept this types of images in your computer. Try saving the scanned document on a different folder/ or in your desktop. If everything fails, reformat your computer.
This message comes up after about 40000 registers on a use counter. I posted what I did on the Epson RX620 forum. Look it up. Basically I bought a repair manual on the net for about $10.00 I used this to take the RX620 apart down to the waste ink catch pads which I removed cleaned dried and replaced. It was a long job the first time and you need the manual in order to figure out how to do it. My pads were only about 1/3 used but I live in a dry climate. So punch those override buttons and keep going. You might put a plastic sheet or pan under the printer to catch the waste ink when it actually does leak out.
