Hi there!

Can someone tell me here I can get the Ink Pad Reset Utility for Epson R280, or how to reset the Ink Pad Counter.

I have already the SSC utility V4.30but the model above is not suported by them.

Tanks a lots

Same here, unfortunately.

I've not been able to find the service manual or utility for this one — they're now quite difficult to acquire, and even the repair depots have to refresh their service programs on a regular basis.

This is likely why the SSC utility doesn't get updated very often.

There are sites where you can buy them, of course (not from Epson, tho') — an on-line search will usually turn them up.

I recently purchased an R280 and it appears to have a waste tank in it. Am I seeing this correctly? My R320 died - maintenence light stays on with error. I have appreciated reading your posts.

No, the R280 still uses waste pads. Internal waste tanks are not a good idea on small machines that may get inverted.

I accidentally ran the SSC Utility on the R280. The OEM cartridges all show empty or unknown. Is there somewhere to download the firmware for the R280?

Although I am not an Epson owner, check this site for reset.

Hope this helps.

That was good information. But, the R280 is not supported for that download. It seems like I can find everything for every printer except the R280.

www.epson.com/ipr - this is the website where you can download the ink pad reset utility, BUT R280 is not on the list because r280 is just a new model of epson and all of them are still under 1 year warranty. What you need to do guys is to call epson tech support and they will replace your printers.

Why would they replace it when I installed software to bypass some of the stuff they intentionally put in to keep me from using other ink systems?

Maybe I will give it a try.
