Question about Epson Stylus Pro 10000CF InkJet Printer
I have a epson 10000cf 44" archival printer..I transported the printer, later plugged it in and all the lights are flashing. Cannot get anything out of the printer besides flashing lights. I have the service manual, and it describes NVRAM fatal error. This RAM I'm guessing holds the printer bios. I wonder by removing and replacing the battery on the board would reset the NVRAM. If not how can I get past the flashing lights and reset the NVRAM. And by the schematic I can't determine if the the NVRAM is on the mainboard or the drive board. The mainboard is around $300 to replace, and the drive board is around $1000 to replace. Any ideas. Maybe does anyone know if there's a place I can send the board to be fixed?? I am a small printing business, and this is taking a big hit on me right now..Anyone have any logical ideas?? Also can't figure out how to load new firmware without the access ??? Help!!
If you are getting that error try this
Check to make sure the locking bracket and screw have been removed from the print head.
Turn off the printer.
Open the lower cover on the front of the printer and remove the bracket and screw holding the print head in place.
Close the printer cover and turn on the printer.
The Pause light, begins flashing and the printer starts charging the ink delivery system.
If a different error then update me, thanks!!

If the error is fatal then there is NOTHING you can do at home to sort the problem out. If Epson are refusing to repair the unit because you have repeatedly used non genuine ink then you can try and take them to task on the legality of that decision (depending upon consumer law in your area) but the chances of you getting it sorted without costing a fortune are slim to none.
There is an error which shows up in the status monitor as MAINTENANCE error and this can fixed relatively easily. It's symptoms are similar. However, a fatal error is generally just that - Fatal - and there is nothing the home user can do as this generally requires parts fitting.
Your non genuine ink is almost certainly NOT to blame for the fatal error though. At worst the **** ink you use will clog nozzles and may even ruin the print head by clogging all the nozzles and causing only blank pages to be produced. BUT can you prove this to Epson in court?
My advice - bin the printer and replace it with one from a manufacturer who appears to give a damn about their products and customers as much as their fat pockets!!

Service required mean waste ink counter overflow. You need to reset it. SSC Service utility don't work with this type. The resetter is not for free, it's commercial. Only some distributor have it.
