It'd be worth checking that you don't have anything else in there like paper, etc... that's jamming things up.

But failing that... if it's all still hopeless, you can still get some money back by ebaying it as "faulty"... I should know I've bought a few to play with so there's no lack of people wanting it for parts.

refilling r200 carts?

surely thats not cost effective........compatable ones are about £1 each in England

i have only seen that error once when paper got jammed and i pulled it out dislodging a pickup sensor, cannot remember how i fixed it

normal error on them is a service error where the lights just flash red

the printer wont work if cd tray is open and u try print paper

You can take the ends off and then remove the main grey top part of the body to take a closer look at the insides but I would not recommend going any further than that.

Taking the ends off requires a flashlight and a very small mirror to help locate the clips inside the case that hold it in place. There are also 2 rubber feet on the left side (left side when you have the printer output tray closest to you) that need to be pulled out to remove the left end.

If you can resolve the issue without removing the case at all though, that's definitely better.

Depends on the quality of the ink in the ones you're referring to... I've always used inks from MIS Associates (www.inksupply.com) as I know they won't clog the nozzles or suffer from fading earlier than normal Epson OEM inks.
