Service call error 00010040


Common Error Codes
00000101 The CR Motor reached it's end of life. 00010000 PF Encoder Check Error. 00010005 CR Motor is out of step. 00010014 Pressurising failure. 00010027 Pressure pump micro air-leak error. 00010040 Printing position error. 0001002D The cleaning unit reached it's end of life. 0001003F The Pressure Motor reached it's end of life.

Servicing Levels

Three levels of servicing are available and detailed below:
  1. Basic 0040 or 0001002D maintenance procedure: This will return your printer from either the 0040 or 0001002D error to a working state by replacing only the relevant maintenance items.
  2. Advanced 0040 / 0001002D maintenance procedure: As well as replacing the parts relating to the maintenance error additional adjustments such as bidirectional/unidirectional alignment, 980mm feed adjustment, firmware updating and a general clean will be performed.
  3. Overhaul: All maintenance items as well as the PF, CR motor and belt, cutter cap, pressure assembly and cutter solenoid will be replaced. A check for any design defects such as a defective cutter cap and a defective pressure lever will be performed and any parts will be replaced if necessary. All head and feed alignments will be performed as well as any required software updates and sensor verifications. A thorough clean will also be performed on the carriage area and the print head. When the procedures are complete a survey will be performed to better understand your requirements and any recommendations will be brought forward.
info.gifIt is recommended that if you have recently come into ownership of a second user Epson Stylus Pro 9800 then you should assume that the counter values or service life levels are incorrect and choose the most thorough procedure detailed above. The reason for this is an increasing number of printers being "reset" without the actual parts being replaced or inexperienced owners trying to repair or replace parts incorrectly. In one such case a part was removed and replaced incorrectly causing a serious ink leak which was luckily caught early due to the undertaking of an thorough maintenance procedure, but unfortunately extensive damage had already been caused to the chassis and maintenance tank area.

I copied the error code and put it in the search bar in a web browser and came up with the answer. In the future just google the codes and see what comes up. Also you can download a Field Repair Guide PDF and a Manual PDF from Epson's website too.

Hi Ya! I was looking out for the solution of the Epson 1400 printer having black toner shows pop-up message; which displays "Consumables near end of service life". "Prepare the following...


If a consumable product reaches the end of its service life, the product stops printing and displays the following messages in the LCD panel or the window of EPSON Status Monitor 3. When this happens, the product cannot resume printing until you replace the depleted consumable products.

The photoconductor unit comes to the end of its service life. Even if this message is displayed in the LCD panel, you can continue to print for a short time by pressing the B&W Start or Color Start button on the control panel. The message in the LCD panel changes from Replace Photoconductor to Worn Photoconductor.

Parts inside your printer are near the end of their service life. See your printer documentation. _ Epson R200 printer.


Regarding the Epson Artisan 800, I must thank FixYa and ask that the search for a solution be discontinued.Yesterday, I had an unfortunate accident while trying to unclog the print head which had been printing poorly over the last three months. I used a syringe to force a solvent solution through the clogged head. To my utter surprise the supply line exploded with a loud "POP" meanwhile spraying ink all over the place. At this point it was clear that it was pointless trying to redeem the old Artisan 800. Thank you FixYa. Henry.

Q: What should I do if my printer driver displays the message parts inside my printer are reaching their end of service life?

A: See the Epson Ink Pad Reset Utility page.

Epson Ink Pads Reset Utility

If your product is displaying an end of life service message, please view and complete the required information below to proceed.

Please explain the message I am getting in my printer driver that says parts inside my printer are reaching their end of service life.

Like so many other products, all Epson consumer ink jet products have a finite life span due to component wear during normal use. At some point, the product will reach a condition where either satisfactory print quality cannot be maintained or components have reached the end of their usable life. This is the normal product life cycle for highly mechanical devices like printers. This message is a warning that certain parts have reached the end of their usable life and that your printer will no longer work until it is serviced.

What parts are we talking about?

The message refers to the ink pads, which are actually a number of porous pads in the printer that collect, distribute, and very importantly contain the ink that is not used on printed pages. Ink is collected by these pads during the initial setup of the product, during cleaning cycles and when printing borderless photographs. Most users will not receive this message before the printer is replaced for other reasons. Some high volume users or those who use the printer for many years may receive this message about ink pads before other components reach the end of their usable life.

Why does my printer stop functioning when I get the message?

Epson is committed to ensuring the proper operation of all our devices to minimize the risks of property damage or personal injury during the lifespan of the product. The printers are designed to stop operating at the point where further use without replacing the ink pads could create risks of property damage from ink spills or safety issues related to excess ink contacting an electrical component.

Is there anything I can do to continue using my printer?

Epson recommends replacing the printer, but if you want to continue using it, Epson recommends having the printer serviced at an Epson Customer Care Center. You may also be able to have the ink pads replaced by an independent service provider and use the Ink Pad Reset Utility to reset the Ink Pad Counter to continue using the printer. Please note that replacement of ink pads is relatively expensive and may not be a good investment for lower cost printers because the printers' other components also may be near the end of usable life. Epson does not recommend ink pad replacement by users without technical training or resetting the Ink Pad Counter without replacing the ink pads.

Note: This utility is for Windows XP and Vista operating systems only. We hope to develop an option for Mac users as well; however, we do not have an ETA or the OS requirement at this time.

We're getting this Service Required message - Parts inside your printer are near the end of their service life. See your printer documentation. What part are we needing to replace?


the parts most likely to be replaced with such a message are the waste ink pads. (sponge pads that collect the ink that is used for print head cleanings). these pads are difficult to reach inside the printer (full dissassembly is necessary) and doing so is a VERY dirty job. i suggest contacting a repair center near you.

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...
Help on this is available here

My printer says part in printer are at end of service life ..does this mean is has broken down


It means your printer has reached a certain number of prints after which the printer requires some parts to be replaced (i.e. ink absorbers, capping station).

You can reset this counter using the reset utility ( http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml ), you should however still replace these parts or have them replaced.
