• This was my first video guide attempt and while a bit shorter features my arm getting in the way at a rather unfortunate moment… Hopefully not annoying but hey, lessons learned :)

     

    The guide itself shows you how to install a Solo+ waste kit to the Epson Stylus DX4400 with minimal fuss while providing a few tips on what to look out for while you’re installing

  • Following a bit of a step back from the usual photo + text installation guides the value of video “How to” guides has been impressed upon me so here’s the second in a series of guides

     

    Unlike the DX4400 video (which was video 1), the P50 waste tube is attached to a plastic nipple which in turn is part of a solid internal tank type arrangement. Removing the tube from the nipple is a bit more involved but this video covers the process as well as how to modify the trapdoor and a few gotcha’s to watch out for.

    Constructive feedback welcome so I can improve on the next version

  • For the uninitiated, this is an introduction and guide on how to use the “AdjProg” utility that is often required to reset the waste ink counter on Epson inkjet printers.

    Content:

    • How to run the program
    • Initial Settings
    • Things to avoid
    • How to read the current counter and what it means
    • Resetting the counter
    • Getting out of the utility
    • Warnings re: resetting and ignoring the waste ink

    This time I’ve covered the D88 printer but the RX685 and R1900 are also on my list for some point in the future.

    My first vidcap tutorial on this subject was a bit long winded and harder to follow so I’ve learned how to keep it short and got it down to 4 minutes (ish) with my new version so hopefully it’s better as a result.

  • A newer vidcap tutorial/guide is also available

    Epson Adjustment Utilities are notoriously complicated and about as user friendly as the small print for a pre-nup’. Well, let’s be honest they are not intended to be used by untrained end-users but some of the instructions provided with these things have left a LOT to be desired.

    Until now!

    I’ve realised that support requests relating to these utilities are increasing so I’ve finally managed to put together a screencast tutorial to fill the void.

    The new tutorial shows a detailed run through of the whole process including date changing, clearing a few tell tale folders/registry entries, etc… I’ve even included a few “DO NOT!” warnings too…

    Feel free to tweet, email or otherwise spread this link: http://bit.ly/Ko6Dm remembering to credit wasteink.co.uk please!… and if you have any feedback please let me know.. but no comments about the “Erms“, and “Ah’s“… This voice over stuff is not that easy!
