@Edysing: That indicates the waste ink pads have reached what the printer considers to be saturation point.

The solve this you need to download the SSC utility from here

Note: Make sure you're using a Windows XP machine (it won't work with Vista or Mac)

Install the utility as normal and then configure it via the configuration tab to your R230 printer and the appropriate printer model "Epson Stylus Photo R220/R230"

Then:

  • Close the utility and locate the little printer icon in your system tray (bottom right corner of screen)
  • Right click on this icon and scroll up to "Protection Counter"
  • Click on the "Reset Protection Counter"
  • Locate and click on the "Clear counter overflow" option too
  • Now turn off your printer, wait a few seconds and then turn it back on again
You should now find your printer has reset the waste ink counter and you can printer again.

With that done you should then decide how to redirect your waste ink to an external tank.

Google can help with a few kits out there or you can always find instructions for creating your own...

DO NOT ignore the waste ink issue though as the pads will become oversaturated and leak ink if you leave the issue unresolved.

Hope that helps.

2 lights flashing


What is the flash pattern?

If the red paper light and the red ink light are blinking in an alternating pattern, then you may have a foreign object or piece of paper blocking the movement of the print head. Turn off the printer, open the printer and look for anything in the printhead path. Remove anything that doesn't belong. Some printers have a strip that the print head travels across that can sometimes come out of position. This can be repositioned by moving it up and down as well as forward and back to align in a guide on the back of the print head.

After clearing the obstruction, close the printer and turn it back on. If the error persists, then the unit needs service.

If the red paper light and the red ink light are blinking together and the green power light is off, then the printer has an internal error. Turn it off and then back on. If the error persists, the unit needs service.

One internal error could be the waste ink absorber is full. These pads are below the printhead and absorb ink during cleaning cycles. To reach them is messy and takes disassembling the printer from the top. This may include removing the print head. Pull the pads, blot the ink off them and the places where they fit in the printer. Run clean water over the pads until the water remains clear. Dry the pads (use a hair dryer to speed the process). Then reassemble the printer.

Next navigate to http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/InkPadsForm.jsp and fill in the model and serial number of the printer (as well as the other required information). You will get a link to download a reset utility for Windows. Run this tool to solve the error. Do not run this utility until the pads are replaced or cleaned; waste ink will get everywhere inside the printer and over your documents.

I hope this helps.

My mfc240c says to replace the yellow ink cartridge but I don't want to spend money on that if the 'light bulb' is ruined. When I turn on the machine, I don't see any light for scanning or copying. ...


By the "light bulb," do you mean the scanner lamp? That lamp should only turn on when you are actually scanning, faxing, or copying a document. You should be able to still use the machine to scan and fax, even with the yellow ink empty. Try scanning a document to see if the scanner lamp comes on.

As far as printing or copying goes, you won't be able to print or copy anything until you replace the yellow ink, even if you try printing in black and white only.

Blinking teardrop light blinking


Blinking drop light on HP6122 signifies an ink cartridge is out of ink. There are two cartridges -- color (larger of two) and black (smaller of two). Blinking drop light only indicates either, but not which. HP6122 service software and print driver are available from HP website http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?product=83027&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=us. HP6122 service software has a printer maintenance utility which includes ink cartridge monitor. Use the maitenance service utility to determine which (or both) cartridge is out of ink. With cartridge replacement, printer should automatically print test page, then reset and be ready for printing from your computer. To clear printed documents from print que, open the HP6122 print que via control panel > printers > double-click on HP6122 driver to show que > select document tab > select cancel.

My r220 epson will not prit anything


The ink indicator permanently on indicates an ink cartridge problem, (not that the protection counter needs resetting). The status monitor picture of the ink cartridges should show which cartridge is at fault, it will have a red X on it. The cartridge is empty, faulty, or in the wrong position. Alternatively, you may have an internal fault e.g. with the system board. But change the indicated faulty cartridge first.
