We have a perfectly good R340 whose waste pads filled up. Since R340's are going for $150+ on ebay we sent this to the official epson fixer upper electronics store in Atlanta. Just for the waste pads. It cost $220.

Ok, so we get it back and I put a bottle on the waste tube. It gets the service needed message a week later (we do A LOT of printing) and I reset the waste pad counter. It starts popping up every day. Then every hour. Then every print. Now it won't reset at all.

I've tried two programs - the sc program and the other one that seems to be licenced to some guy in Russia.

Anyone know how I can reset the stupid printer? Did the shop add in a little extra in the programming so it can't be reset after 20 times or something like that?

Thanks for your help!

Hi Belle,

If you PM (private message) an email address across I can send you something that might help.

You're a peach! Epson is giving away resetter programs for their printers! And it worked! Thanks for letting me know!

No problem at all... Glad you got it sorted after all the other nightmares you were having.

You can check the values of the waste ink counters with Inkreset utility. It is easy and free. I use it to know if I have waste ink counters overflow or other kind of problem.
