0Dell 3130CN LogoExcellent utility to fix Epson printers

I had a problem with an old Epson Stylus Photo R200 printer.  Despite being loaded with paper and fresh genuine ink cartridges, the unit refused to print.  The 2 red warning lights on top were flashing alternately.  After considerable googling I discovered that this error code is related to the ink cartridge cleaning well.  Apparently it gets full of ink after a certain number of head cleaning cycles.  As usual with cheap inkjet printers, the warning is based on a counter, not on the actual fullness of the cleaning well, and the error can be bypassed by resetting the counter in the printer.  The good news is there is a utility which will do just that.  Although it doesn’t list support, I can confirm that the utility does work fine on Windows 7 x64, so I believe it should work on every version of windows since Windows 95!
