ive used epson printers no issues like that have ever came up for me. maybe theres a waste reservoir you need to empty.

this might be of some help. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rHwu2bsKVPs

I have an RX 700 sitting in my garage right now waiting for the garbage man. It came up with the same problem. I put the external tank mod on it and reset it. Almost immediately it came up and said I had no ink installed. I read around the internet and couldn't find a solution. Mechanically it worked perfect still. I had to clean the printhead a lot because of light use and filled the tank prematurely. Apparently it's programmed to do this from what I read. It's soured me on epson printers. I've now got a Kodak, hope it does better. Perhaps you would be better off with a different brand. At any rate, good luck with it.

Any sort of reset button on the printer? Sometimes they have you hold a certain button while powering off, or on.

i tried that solution but that is just a temporary solution, it will work until you turn of the printer. when you turn it on again the problem is back. but thanks for the suggestion.

i tried this. these guys are tricky. they give you a program to reset the waste ink tank counter but then you will need to buy a reset key from them for it to work.

Hi,

Got a notification about this as I have a vested interest in all things waste ink related. Just to provide some up to date information on this and deal with the "tricky" comment above.

First off, there will probably be an AdjProg (one of the service utilities that Epson provides to its service centres) that gets out into the general net but it's an open guess as to if/when they might happen.

Secondly the WICReset is a third party development tool that 2manuals has had a very active hand in. The problem is that everyone has been "spoiled" by the previous efforts that were originally freely available through the SSCLG project in the form of the SSC utility. That set the bar on expectations that persists today in that everyone believes that it should all be free and I suspect a fair amount of the animosity aimed at OEM printer manufacturers boils over to be aimed at the WICreset tool.

Bottom line is this though..
1. The number of different models now released by Epson is heading into the 500+ units (SSC covered less than a fifth of that)
2. The tool is being actively developed whereas the SSC utility stopped over 3 years ago without so much as a note of goodbye.
3. If the WICReset tool wasn't available the only other option would be the service centres themselves and they seem to be more than happy to charge anywhere from £20 to as much as £120 for what amounts to less than a minute of work.
4. You have to pay for development time somehow.


Some folks will still get outraged about it but given the choices I know which I prefer... $10 vs' $30+... Not exactly rocket science is it. And let's be straight here, anyone who feels strongly enough to get out there and write something for free, nobody is going to complain... (except that they will, because you'll be expected to keep it updated forever for nothing, with naff all thanks for the effort).


In terms of validity, the utility does work, IF you pay attention and clear print jobs, turn the printer off when prompted (using the printers own power button)... Oh and it's not some Russian based scam

Almost all of the complaints I've seen and fielded myself are from folks who didn't bother reading instructions or who expected it to reset the chips on their ink cartridges instead of the waste counter.



Just for the record, I'm not having a dig at anyone here or anyone in specific but merely providing a little background as to the why's, wherefores and a little reality check. The real crime is that Epson do not release a means to reset the waste counter and provide self-help kits themselves. If you want to get angry, aim it at them.

Hope the above helps.
