Not sure if this is the right group for this, but all the printer groups
seem dead. so I will risk being flamed.
I bought the EpsonPhoto R265 about a year ago, complete with a continuous
ink system and after some fiddle got it working. It worked OK except for
needing a lot of clean cycles for almost every use. I recently got a leak
in the Yellow cartridge and took it out to replace the rubber sealing
grommet. On putting it back the status monitor showed the yellow empty and
all the attempts to reset according to the book failed. Took all cartridges
out and replaced on a replace cycle, now I got all cartridges showing Xs and
a message that the cartridges were incompatible. Bought some standard clone
replacement cartridges of good make and replaced the CISS cartridges, but
still status monitor puts red Xs on all cartridges and message tells me
cartridges are incompatible. Any ideas???
I've read up on some of the forums and find that the reset software for my
R265 isn't commonly available and that maybe I have too much ink on the ink
cleaning pad which needs replacing. Anything like that makes the printer
repair uneconomical by third party. Please help!!!
PS What is a good Photo printer to buy nowadays that allows Ink
