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.
