Question about Epson Stylus RX500 All-In-One InkJet Printer
This service message is due to the fact that epson have waste ink pads in the base of them this is to catch any excess ink every time your ink head passes back and forward it adds to a counter depending on how much ink is used every pass of the head when this message appears you are supposed to change the pads i have stripped hundreds of these and the pads are only ever around a third full so u will get roughly have to reset the message 5 times before stripping and washing out the pads (a messy job)

Sharmon, Many thanks the above fix it worked for me. Is it legal that Epson can build into there system something that defines when the printer should work and when it should not?

I had to do this procedure a couple of times. I eventually told me the yellow was out. I immediatly replaced it and the printer charged and went into its normal operation. Thanks for the suggestion I was at the end of my wits

Hi Carl I had the same thing happen to me, I did some research on the internet and there was a very wise person said to: Press and HOLD all the following buttons: Power, Load/Eject, Stop, B&W, Color. RELEASE BUTTONS. After this printer turns on, you'll see "Init eeprom" on printer screen. Press Color button to clear protection counter. It worked for me,...hope it works for you. Sharmon
