Sounds like you knocked the vacuum pipe off at the pump cap when you had it apart. Take it apart again and check the vacuum pipe for connection, blockages and being trapped between cases when you reassembled it.

Parts inside your printer are near the end of their service life


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

A possible workaround to "end of life" on Epson printers; download, install and run "SSC Service Utility"

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Epson R220 won't print. Paper feeds through OK, print head moves as if printing but no ink comes out. Tried several sets of cartridges and this makes no difference. Cartridges are recognised fine and no...


Nothing at all? Problem with micropiezo (micro pump) at head. But you said, replaced print head. So it might just lost electricity to head (problem with board).

APPARENTLY EPSON DETERMINES THE PRINTING LIFE OF IT'S PRINTERS AND SCHEDULES THE SHUT DOWN OF THE PRINTERS. HOW CAN I OVERCOME THIS PROGRAMMING?


If you mean the "parts in the printer have reached the end of their service life" or "Service required" then you need to do two things.

1. Reset the waste ink or "protection counter" in your printer.
This requires the SSC utility (for the R220) printer.

2. You need to redirect your waste ink flow to an external tank of some description or replace the waste ink pads in the printer. The external tank is a lot easier to do...

Epson r220 reset


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
