If even one counter is overflow - more then 100% - the printer will not work and you have to reset this counter.
If all counters are low then 100% - printer can work ok.

I ran the reset utility on my Epson R3000 for the first time in order to collect some data. The results show three counters (12.99%, 13.00%, 3.12%). What are the three counters counting?


Also, what is the meaning of "Total print pass counter" and "Total print page counter"? I'm guessing the page counter is the number of prints made. What size print is being counted? Does it count ink wasted by turning on the printer and by cleaning the print head, doing nozzle checks, etc.?


Thanks very much,
