Question about Epson Stylus 2200 InkJet Photo Printer
I will gladly give you a thumbs up and a fixed sign for your efforts and valuable time especially free of charge, but my printer is still down. The link you sent me is an .exe file which won't open on my MAC. Do you have a link for MAC users? Also how do I empty the ink reservoir in the printer that it's claiming is full? Won't it eventually be completely filled?
Didn't know you were on a Mac, which does make a difference.
The link I sent you is a direct download link for a utility to access and flush the counter in your printer.
It is highly unlikely that your reservoir is full. Nearly all these warnings are simply a result of the print counter reaching a pre determined number which then creates the warning alert and trajically halts all printing.
I can check to see if there is a Mac version of this utility and/or just send you the url to the page where the download link is located.
Your browser not allowing an exe to open or in this case directly begin downloading is a security feature with a default property denying this outbound link to an exe from being accessed. In general, this is a good thing as it traverses across domains.
To access the reservoir would require you to do some disassembly and some people consider themselves to be skill enough to do this, I've found on this web site's customers. You however may not and that's okay. You're only option would be to opt out of the do it yourself nature of our solutions here at FixYa and visit a qualified tech.
There was a time when I used to get a lot of printers to clean and repair. But, printers are nearly considered to be disposable, much like the VCR and DVD players. That is to say, the cost to repair is greater than the cost to replace.
Bottom line in your case: your printer's counter has exceeded it value set at the factory. Your reservoir is 'not' full, based on our collective experience, you would have had to be refilling your own printer cartridges (which notoriously leak) to actually have a full ink tank. The ink tank full warning is actually an after market method of generating more income in the printer seller channel. How to reset this number is a closely guarded 'secret' so to speak. I do not have this memorized.
Do you have Windows Boot Camp on your Mac? So you could run a Windows based program?
Let me see what I can do. I actually do not think this is available in Mac or that the sequence will work off a Mac platform.
