Most likely the ink pads need changing or you can take them out and give them a good wash and drip dry

    1. Unplug the power and USB cables from the printer. I pried open my C42UX printer, careful not to break anything. I use a flat blade screwdriver to pry it apart; there are two-three tabs at the back and two at the front. Gently push them in, and then using a bit of force pry apart the cover.
    2. Next I removed the two (2) waste ink pads. They are located at the back on the left hand side. I used the flat blade screwdriver to lift up the ink pads (they were soaked). Please use rubber gloves as it gets very messy.
    3. Next I took the pads to the kitchen skin and washed them with just plain hot water until they were white again. I just let the hot water run on them (the pads are about three inches long).
    4. Once washed I dried them using a hair drier. (you could place it the sun for a few hours or on top of your heater or maybe in a heated oven; (make sure you do not set it on fire with too much heat).
    5. Once dried I placed the pads back in the ink waste bin at the back of the printer.
    6. I closed the printer cover and put back all the pieces and plugged in the USB & power cable and turned it on. (Yes the lights are still flashing).
    7. Go to this link and download this software: http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml

    8. Install the software and run it.
    9. Select your printer and model number ( It only says C42 there is no UX, choose it anyway).It will ask if you replaced with new pads; say “YES”. Then close the window.
    10. Now right click on the SSC service utility, it looks like a printer icon near your clock in the task bar.
    11. Then click on reset counters. You can do all other stuff with this utility too.
    12. Turn off the printer power and then turn it on again. If necessary un-plug the power cord from the back of the printer, wait 20 seconds. Plug it back in.
    13. THERE YOU GO! IT WORKS AGAIN.

My epson r 230 printer is showing 'service required parts inside the printer are at the end of their service life' please find the solution


Epson programmed their printer to monitor the waste ink counter and your printer has reached the maximum value allowed, you have to reset your printer to clear the waste ink counter.

You may read the information regarding "end of life" and "waste ink counter" here: http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/InkPadsForm.jsp

To reset the counter, download re-setter program here, install and follow the instruction in the web site.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Parts inside your printer are at the end of their service life.


This message refers to the waste ink pad in the printer, when this is 'full' this message appears, You can reset this yourself by downloading the right software which you can download from here:

Reset the waste ink counter!
Assuming you have completed your modification you can reset your printers waste counter using this method (I did this and it worked on the CX6400) can't guarantee it works on all)
1. You will see big button on your printer like power on (this is on the left
2. side), black & white photocopy, color photocopy, and then the stop button (these are on the right side).
3. first turn off your printer
4. push the b/w + color + stop buttons together and hold
5. push the power on button and hold (so you'll now be holding down 4 buttons together)
6. Don't release all the buttons until you see the light indicator is blinking and then a message display on the lcd
7. release all the buttons
8. push the color button (once)
9. turn off the printer
10. turn it on again
After this one may need to reload the printer driver and locate the printer!

" parts inside your printer are at the end of their service life.


This usually happens when the waste pads become full and need to be replaced.
You can try to do it yourself like this guy did on his printer:
http://www.hm2k.com/posts/parts-inside-your-printer-are-at-the-end-of-their-service-life

you can actually just use the software to reset the printer but eventually the pads will overflow and start to leak.

The last option is too take it to Epson and ask for a quote.

Epson Stylus C$$ Plus suspect Print-head problem Hi, I have a problem with my Epson Stylus C44 Plus. It has been out of use for over a year now and I recently bought a new set of cartridges. I installed the cartridges and carried out a head alignment, followed by a nozzle check. All colours apart from the blue colour printed correctly so I carried out a head cleaning test. This was done a few times and I even carried out a deep clean but with no results (apart from emptying the black cartridge in the process!). I assume that it could be a problem with either the print-head being clogged and/or the waste tank or sponge being clogged. Having read through this forum I think I will need to strip the printer down and give it a good clean through. One additional thing I did notice however is that the spring holding the waste tank and sponge must have become dislodged somehow, as the print-head makes a horrendous knocking noise whenever it moves to the right of the printer and it seems it is not aligning with something correctly. I moved the printer and noticed a spring had fallen out of it, after reading some posts here I assume that the spring holds this "mechanism" in place so the print-head aligns with it correctly. I keep thinking of binning it and getting a new printer but have just got 12 new carts off EBay, hence trying to solve the problem. I'm not after expert prints, just something cheap and cheerful that my eldest can use when he starts secondary school in September. Thanks in advance for any help, assistance or guidance. Paul
