Hi, i had the same problem with my r1800. It said that the ink were not genuine and after about 1000 trys turning back on and off it eventually decided it didn't recognize any of the inks.
I had ti take it to the menders and they told me it was something to do with the sensors in the nozzles or something. Anyway i had to get it replaced.
I am now on my third r1800, all with the same problem luckily i got them all within the warranty. Good luck.

The message says parts inside the printer are nearing the end of their service life. What should I do?


This message means that the printer thinks the waste ink pads are full and so
> it refuses to print until the pads are replaced and the waste ink (protection)
> counter is reset.
> In practice the pads will not be full if this is the first time you have
> received the message so all that needs to be done is to reset the counter. Next
> time you must replace or clean the pads.
> Go to http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml and download the utility.
> Install it, run it and exit it from the main window, now go to the icon in the
> system tray and right click on it. Select waste ink or protection counter and
> select reset. If this gives trouble then uninstall the Epson status monitor and
> try again (you can install the status monitir again afterwards).
> The irony is that the more you use an Epson printer the more reliable it will
> be (due to the heads being kept in good condition) but the people that use
> their printer most will get this message earlier than others. Some people never
> see this message. It is a good printer and well worth the effort of doing this
> at no cost.

The SSC service utility won't reset the R1800 counter.
The Epson service program is needed and can be downloaded from:
http://www.2manuals.com/

The R1800/2400 service manual can be downloaded from that site.
If you want to have a go at replacing the pads, then instructions are in
the manual.

My yellow ink head on my r1800 printer is clogged.


If it is within warranty then contact epson support. If not and normal head cleaning doesnt work then try a print head cleaning solution such as:

MacBook Pro Epson Print Driver Dilemma


your problem is about profiles. The gutenprint is the only way to print from intel to r1800, but this driver don't use the same ICC profiles. You have to use one of three solutions below:
1 the best, you have a profile calibrating device, you make a profile of your couple ink-paper and you convert your document into this ICC profile.
2 you convert your picture into your software in one of the Epson generic profiles (hey probably still are on your computer) and you print whithout color managment
3 (awful) you anticipate the color distorsion and you tune your picture to be bad on the screen but pretty good on paper.

Epson R1800 printer won't recognize new ink cartridge


You can remove magenta & double check that some tape was not left behind on the contacts. Take a clean ragg & dampen it with alcohol. Clean the ink cartridge's (copper contacts & inside the the ink carrige). Re-install the magenta, (tight fit). Power off the printer. Wait a few seconds & power it back up. If it fails a second time with no other errors. Like the above. Than the magenta may be defective. Have a recipt? Return it for a replacment.
