Had the same problem. (its a work around without removing the waste ink pad)
Took alot of work but I fixed it.
Frist thing you need to know that error means your ink waste pad is full. Its a $75.00 to replace but there is a work around it.
You will need this free app. SSC service utitlty.
http://inkjetprinterhelp.us/epsonSSC.html Its a great app.
Instrusctions are on the website there.
You will also have to Open the access panel on the rear of the printer (remove screw) and look inside carefullly with a flashlight. You will see a tube (down and to your left) coming from the cleaning pump and it will have an open end on it. This is the tube that delivers ink to the waste pad.
Use a piece of coat hanger wire or equivalent, and fish out this piece of tube. Bring it to the outside of the printer, thru the access panel.
Find yourself a suitable container (Tupperware or a plastic cup or jar) that is not too tall. Put the tube into this container and secure the tube and container so they won’t come apart or lose connection if the printer is moved.
If you wish you can make a hole or notch in the access panel cover so it can be replaced.

SOURCE: Epson R285 need service utility

It sounds a lot like you have managed to reset the printer using the R290 adjustment utility and it now thinks that your printer is an R290 printer.

As a result it's rejecting the yellow cartridge (presumably the first to read empty since you reset the printer) and expects you to provide R290 consumables.

The only fix that I've heard suggested (and I'm still waiting to hear if it worked) if to get someone with a valid R285 to use the same adjustment utility to make a backup of the EEPROM data (nothing else), save this file, send it to you, and then for you to restore that same data to your own printer EEPROM.

As I said, I haven't heard if it works and I could be wrong about the cause but as I provide waste kits myself and have already had quite a few people report a similar issue I suspect I'm about right.

Hope that helps.

Martin

SOURCE: Waste in ink tank near full

Hi there
There no easy way the printers are been made this way so you take them to the shop, but if you are handy with your hands and know what you are doing then you will need to take all apart and take out the ink pads inside the printer and clean them up make sure they nice dry when put back in, then you are going to need a program that you can find on the internet it will be called waste reset tools, or your printer will not work even after you done the clean out.

I am not sure what canon you have so I cant tell you the tools you need for yours, i have got canon MP-Tools on my website if this is the one you need.
with this you can reset the waste ink tank before you do the clean out but remember in time you will need to clean out or it going to be a big mess of ink coming out your printer.

All I ask is please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

SOURCE: Epson Artisan 710 won't print black

Hi,


The nozzle may be blocked. So take out the colour cartridge and place its nozzle in a bit of water for about 10 mins. Bring it out and dab the nozzle with folded paper. If the tissue is blotted with the three colour it means you have unblocked the nozzle. Try now to print after returning the colour cartridge. You may need to repeat to get good results..


Thank you!!

How to reset epson t 60 printer

Depends on what you mean by "reset".
If you're referring to the waste ink counters, you can either:
  1. Locate a copy of the AdjProg service utility and use that to reset the waste counters
    Note: Will not work on MacOS or Windows 8

    ... or...

  2. Download the WICReset (for windows) or iWIC (for MacOS) and purchase a WICReset key to reset the waste ink counter that way.

Whatever you do, remember that resetting doesn't deal with the waste ink inside the pads so you should be looking at changing the pads (not easy to do yourself) or fitting an external waste ink tank like a printer potty.

Printer send s message Life of parts ending

Hi,

The "end of life" message means that the waste pads are full of waste ink.

You need to either:
  • get the printer serviced at an Epson service center

    OR

  • install an external waste ink counter and reset the waste ink/protection counter.

All the information you need to install an external waste ink tank is available from here:
http://www.continuousink.info/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4096

Resetting the waste ink counter is easily done using the IPR utility which you can read more about and find downloads for, from here:
http://www.wasteink.co.uk/epson-ipr-reset/

Hope that helps..
