OFF the printer.open the top cover whole scanner unit .then look at the black base where usually cartridge moves when the printer is ON when you give printouts..press that black base and it will move little bit down .that whole black base comes little bit up due to some reason and when the cartridge holder moves from left to right for its internal allignments/adjustments it clashes that part somewhere and make such noices.and gives the service error..just press that whole 7- 8 inches base where the cartridge moves slowly ,carefully and firmly.then ON the printer and check.do it again if it does not becomes ok after first time.

rate the solution if it helps
thanks.

Epson Stylus Photo RX500 Model C171A Printer flashes up "service required , parts of your printer are at the end of their service life" See your printer documentation. What to do? Stan...


It is the protection counter error, the amount of ink discharged by the printer has reached the maximum value allowed and the printer requires to be reset.

To clear the error follow the instructions you can find here:

http://myprinter.altervista.org/simplefaq/mysimplefaq.html#counter

Once the error has been cleared the printer returns operative, however to avoid further problems you should check and clean the waste ink pads where discharged ink is stored.

To reach the pads you have to disassemble your printer, you can find an exploded diagram here:

It reads Printer Error - see your documentation


this means your printer waste pads are full and the printer needs to be reset for it to work again or it can just be reset

Our epson stylus rx500 printer has been saying ERROR: Printer Error --> See documentation & call for support


this means that you may need a reset your ink waste counter. try to perform this

For the RX500 - Hold down "clear + setup + on"

continue to hold the buttons until the printer had powered on, then off again, then back on. Once I noticed that the LCD had flashed a blank screen, I let go of the 3 keys. In the LCD window I was given access to 3 options using the select keys.

The first had something to do with calibrating the scan light, the second option said "startup." The 3rd did the trick. An abbreviation resembling "ink pad level" was what I was looking for. Here is where I forget what I did... I think that I pressed "OK" on the keypad,. It did nothing. Then I think that I held down the clear button for around 10 seconds. When I let go of the clear button, the LCD read "Press Power to Reset." All better now!


post me a review should this work sir / ma'am coz it did for me

Printer says "Printer Error See Documentation and call Service if necessary. It will not print. HELP!


Reset the printer (power off and on). If still a problem, it's most likely a hardware issue and will need service.

Scanner error


Press the On button to turn off the Stylus Photo RX500. Unlock the transportation lock. Make sure that all packaging materials have been removed. Turn on your Stylus Photo RX500 again. If the error message still appears, call Epson so they can replace your printer.
Goodluck.

RX500 EPSOM STYLUS PHOTO PRINTER Won't Print


I used some less expensive generic ink cartridges on my RX500 and had a similar experience with the black. If you're already using the Epson brand, done the head cleaning, realignment and nozzel checks, I'm not much help. Try Epson's support at their web site.
