SSC Service Utility bx300f
What is your question? You have not given any information with respect to what you want to know. If you are wondering if that utility works with your printer - just google SSC and you can check the list of supported printers. Note that virtually no later printers have been added so many from past few years do not have a SSC utility that can apply. If you are looking for a Waste Ink Counter reset utility - just google that with your make and model and you will find UK outlets that can, for a small sum, supply you with such a utility. If in the USA - go to the www.epson.com
website to get a free one. Note that as the USA serial numbers for printers, even the same model, are totally different to those on the same models in the rest of the World, they cannot be used - only ones with valid USA Serial Numbers can get the free utility. If you think a friend in the USA can send you the utility file - don't bother. It will just refuse to work with any printer supplied outside of the USA and using a USA friend's Serial will not work as the utility can recognise your printer's origin.

Helps to turn the printer off when not in use as the heat tends to dry out the ink. Sometimes the heads just quit and have to be replaced. If you are sure it's just blocked remove it and flush with soft water, then buy some windex window cleaner, make a solution of 100 mls cleaner 200 mls soft water and soak overnight , flush with soft water and shake dry, hope it works.
Epson stylus photo R280 won't print due to false low on ink
Try using a soft cloth saturated with rubbing alcohol over the metal contacts. Make certain all residue to include spent ink or oil from your fingers have been removed. Let air dry. If your printers Print Head can be removed separately, that is the way to go when cleaning components. It has been known that Print Heads fail also and need replacement.
Blank paper no IMAGE or TEXT
In case anyone else runs across this, the problem is caused by a blown fuse on the main board. It is labeled F1 and it is near the 3 tall blue capacitors. If you have a meter you can check across it,if it reads anything more than a couple of ohms it is bad. This is a fast acting 2.5A fuse. You can get a fuse and fuse holder at on line or at your local Radio Shack or similar store. I know the 230 is the European/Asian version so I don't know if you have something like a Radio Shack. The R220 is the US version and it is identical.
You can jump it out but this is not recommended. If the fuse is not there, you could cause more expensive problems later.
Epson Stylus R230 Light Magenta Not working
I would recommend cleaning the contacts (brass colored connections) with an eraser if might resolve the issue. It that does not resolve the issue it might be one of two other things. Either the printhead is cloged or the cable to the printerhead is damaged.
