    Unplug the printer--> remove the cartridges (as you do to change them) in order to reset the printer---> plug again the printer --> set the cartridges again in the printer--> print a test page

    This process will not damage the chip

Epson R200 printer error, Parts inside your printer are at the end of their service life. See your printer documentation.

A Service Error where you get a message telling you that "Parts inside your printer at the end of their service life, contact your dealer for replacement", or "Parts inside your printer require maintenance or replacement, call your service company", is normally a Maintenance Request Error. The maintenance request error is actually a Waste Ink Ink Pad Error and usually your remedy is to replace the Waste Ink Pad/Pads with a new one/ones and then reset the Internal Waste Ink Pad Counter. If you just reset the counter and don't replace the pads, then your printers old pads will eventually overflow and normally start leaking ink out the bottom of your printer.Some people actually wash the ink out of the old pads, by holding them under running cold water. Then they simply dry them out and reinstall them back into their printer. The choice on what to actually do, is yours to make. I would at least recommend getting that Waste Ink Counter reset procedure and performing it first, to make sure your printer will then work.

Try this reset app

Gud day! ineed help ihave a printer hp it won't print the color black unlike other color. plssssss help asap!!!

1. check the cartridge. remove and put it back in and make sure that it is properly connected.
2. Check if it still has ink in it or you can check its ink level on the software that comes with the printer.
3. If there is no more ink or the ink is near draining, purchase a brand new ink.
