Default epson R300 General error

Hi Folks;
I know that this problem has been covered before ,but I am at the stage of throwing my r300 on the scrapheap.I have installed the ssc service disc and reset the protection counter and tried the three button setting but after switching on the machine I still get a general message. I sometimes get a PAPER JAM MESSAGE but most of the time it is a general message error.The printer does print out the nozzle check but will not print any documents.
I would really appreciate if someone can throw any light as to how to solve this problem as I do really like this printer
Thanking you in anticipation wdt

Press and hold 'stop' 'maintenance' and 'power' buttons for about 10 seconds. A message will appear on the screen. power off and back on for reset.

The maintenance button is the one with the tear drop on it.

If the above doesn't work, some recommend unplugging the power cord, then while holding the 3 buttons down, plug the power cord back in, keep holding the 3 buttons down until the restart message appears.

Also be prepared for a nasty noise from the print head after the restart, this is apparently normal.

please post if this works so others can be helped when this error occurs.
