I purchased an Epson Stylus R3000 refurbished printer from Epson. I previously used this printer to print color images using its Epson inks. I am converting my printer for use with PiezoDN and have purchased PiezoDN Warm Neutral Inks. Before installing the piezography inks I am currently attempting to flush my printer of Epson inks using the Cartridge System and PiezoFlush and have installed the recommended program, 2manuals Adjustment Service Program, on an old PC laptop. I have however been unsuccessfully in my attempts to run the Ink Charge. I previously wrote about his issue last year.
I originally received error message " Communication error!: 10000010" and then "Communication error! Error Code: 20000010” when attempting to run Ink Charge when connected to printer via wifi. After switching to a USB cable connection I stopped receiving these error messages but the Ink Charge still failed.
I have attempted to run the Ink Charge again now after several months. Although when started the printer accepts the piezography cartridges, and reads the ink cover and printer cover as closed when the inkjet mall/ piezography switches are in place, as soon as I run the Ink Charge through the Adjustment Program I get an error message on printer saying the printer cover is open and then the printer gives me an error message saying that cartridges are not accepted.
What should be my next step? According to one of comments I received when I last posted, the Ink Charge can only be performed when the cartridges read full and by installing and removing them several times during my attempts to run Ink Charge on wifi the cartridges no longer read as full which is required to carry out the Ink Charge. The cartridges do now only read as partially full. Is this the problem? What should I do now? Should I purchase a new set of Auto-Reset Chips for the R3000 Cartridges and try running the Ink Charge again with these new chips installed? I am a bit worried however that after installing the new Auto-Reset Chips the Ink Charge still won’t work and I will have spent another $80 dollars for nothing. It was also suggested I could also do several cleanings in a row with the PiezoFlush cartridges installed. Should I do these cleaning through the Adjustment Program or just manually select Head Cleaning or Nozzle Check on my printer directly? How many times should I run one of these cleaning options? How do I know that I have cleared all the Epson Inks and PiezoFlush from the system? Is there way to print it out of system or print test print. I want to know my printer is clean before I install the Piezo inks so I am not contaminating/ruining them.
i would greatly appreciate your feedback.
