I followed Idle's excellent advice and fitted a waste ink container at the rear of my Epson R300 inkjet printer. After blotting sheets and sheets of ink from the waste sponges I performed the 3 button push and hold exercise to reset the counters on the ink sponges. My printer made a horrible grinding noise and now doesn't show the ink levels in each cart on the Monitor utility when I print, they are all greyed out.

I've gotten around the service required message and no doubt saved loads of money on Epson service but now I can't see the cart ink levels, and worse still when one runs out, will I know which one?

Have you thought of uninstalling the driver and then re installing. If you are running XP then you should set a restore point before attempting changes. You never know.

Oh my gosh Love these smiley's

Let me know how you go

Install the SSC service utility and check if it can read the levels.

As Teddy Bear said, a re-install might also fix it.
