Question about Epson STYLUS R230 InkJet Photo Printer
Posted by Anonymous on
Sorry to disagree but a "General error" is rarely anything to do with
the waste ink counter and more likely an issue with any number of other
If the waste ink counter were at fault the message would include keywords like "Service required" whereas "General error" is just a generic catch all term for "It's far too technical for us to explain it to you so we won't".
All of that aside, the "General error" can still result from a waste counter reset, particularly when the cartridges in the printer do not have sufficient ink in them to allow a priming routine to complete. The printer assumes that a reset will be done with fresh cartridges (and originals at that) so if the cartridges are low it can bomb out with a general error because it knows it can't complete.
There are a slew of additional "General error" troubleshooting pointers on this article which I keep updated whenever I discover a new quirk to the whole thing:
Hope that helps.

Probably the waste ink tank is full.Try to do this:
First of all download http://www.mediafire.com/?hzxbdhkzxv9.Extract to your C drive. Run indoreset.bat, then follow the instructions.
After that right click AdjProg and select properties. Go to compatibility and select Windows XP.
Click OK at the bottom then right Click AdjProg and select run as administrator (if you have this
option). When working accept the agreement and go to
1. Particular adjustment mode,
2. Then waste ink pad counter,
3. Click Check
4. Tick both boxes.
5. Then initialization.
6. Then it's done.
