    Thanks for the fast reply. I've checked that program before but it doesnt seem to have the Epson Stylus Pro 4800 listed. Also Its the cartidge motor that needs resetting not the Ink Pad Counter.
    Any Ideas?

Hello I have replaced ink to the printer and i have this error num 10000160 do you have solution to this problem. I try to reset without results. Itzik


Many of the Epson printers ink cartridges have a sensor thatallows the printer and the associated software knows when to replace theprinter ink cartridges (even when the cartridges have ink within them) and whenthe printer needs to be cleaned. You mayreceive error messages if that sensor is faulty. In that case you shouldreplace that sensor. Hope this will help you. Good Luck.

How do i reset the ink cartridges in my epson stylus pro 4800


You can get a chip resetter from any of the places that sell refillable cartridges as I did. Works great. They generally sell for about 10 bucks or come with a complete set of the refillable cartridges. This device will also reset the chip on the waste tank so you won't need to go through the button pushing sequence found in the field service guide - that's the one that Epson doesn't want you to know about or have.

0.gif Re: Epson C70 Problem by Jim (12/21/03 4:10 PM) reply + / - I have just installed colour cartridges and a black cartridge into my C70.
Myproblem is that the black cartridge is not being recognised and I aminformed by the printer that there is insufficient ink in the cartridgeand a need a new replacement. The black cartridge that I have used is agenuine epson cartridge.
I have been informed by epson help linethat either I need to install a new new cartridge or that my printerneeds to go to Epson for a maintenance check.
I cannot afford another new ink cartridge nor can I afford the return charges and maintenance bill from epson.

Can you help?


0.gif Re: Epson C70 Problem by Wes t.gif (12/21/03 4:47 PM) reply + / - Theonly two option I can think of is to return the ink cartridge asdefective or you can trick the printer into accepting the cartridge.

Youwill need to download the SSC Service Utility and click on the "ResetCounters" tab and then click the "Reset Black" tab to reset the blackink cartridge. The only problem is you will need to reset or freeze theink cartridge.

You can get the SSC Service Utility here http://inkjetprinterhelp.us/epsonSSC.html

I hope this gets your printer going again.

"parts inside your printer are near end of serviceable life"


Please go to my website http://www.the-inkstore.co.uk . I have the latest version of SSC Service Utility to download directly onto your computer and instructions on how to use it, what to click on etc etc. Click any of the Epson links if you can't find it, everything you need to know will be there, including printer Firmware resetting which sorts out a multitude of problems.

The 'maintenance required' problem with Epson printers has absolutely nothing to do with which cartridges you are using, it is a built in page counter in your printer firmware, which has a different maximum amount for each Epson model. Don't listen to old wives tales and heresay, we are the experts and it's an Epson scam to cause a lot of people to pay for maintenance or throw their printers away.
I haven't found a model that can't be reset with the latest version of SSC Serve or the manual reset on my site.

For Epson RX500 users there is also a manual reset on my site, as the SSC Serve software won't do it for you.
When using the program & choosing your printer from the list, it may have a weird name with 'x' in the model number, this is because some configurations are for many models in a series. For example, the C46 will be listed as C4x as it is for the C42, C44 & C46 models.

I hope this helps all Epson users to overcome the Epson scam of page counting and locking out until you pay their dealers money for maintenance.

If you like what I've done for Epson users, please show your appreciation by spreading the word and perhaps buying your ink from my site.

Happy trouble free printing

Changing ink reservor on Epson rx620


You will need a rescue from http://www.TheServiceManualShop.com. This will give all you need to pull the machine apart and clean the ink pads in the base of machine. You will also need the special bit of software they include to enable you to reset the counter in the printers firmware. Once all done you will be right as rain. If the machine is within its warranty period Epson will fix it.

Printer lights stay on


Hi geoger, Can you give more detail about the lights and if they flash and in what sequence. The most likely cause is that your machine has hit the maintenance error meaning that the waste ink pads are full. This requires that the pads be cleaned/replaced and the counter within the firmware be reset. To do this, you will need the service manual for the 1290 to dismantle it and gain accesss to the pads and the software to reset the firmware counter. You should be able to get these from: http://www.TheServiceManualShop.com and/or http://mikeburton.tradebit.com/
