The waste ink collector pads are getting full and this is a protection indicator.
Either get the machine serviced or it may be cheaper to replace it-[depending where you live]
There are tricks to keep the machine going- but eventually the you will get ink leaking all over the place.

Messrs Epson told me that I needed to either pay a service centre lots of Money for them to fix the problem and that "For Health and safety reasons" they will not tell me what to do.
That left me with the option of either paying through the nose the equivalent cost of a new printer to a service centre to fix my printer or to send my perfectly functional printer to a landfill and buy a new one.
However, there is a third way....
I purchased a service manaul from a website Mr Google found for me. I then found out about the Epson firmware counter that counts the number of ink dribbles that have fallen into the printers Nappy(Diaper). Mr Google then found somewhere else where I can download the utility to reset the counter. This I did, and in one miinute counter was reset and hey presto the printer works again.
All that remans is for me to curse Epson for building in a deliberate end of life "Time Bomb" into the printer firmware.

Please go to my website http://www.the-inkstore.co.uk . I have the latest version of SSC Service Utility to download directly onto your computer and instructions on how to use it, what to click on etc etc. Click any of the Epson links if you can't find it, everything you need to know will be there, including printer Firmware resetting which sorts out a multitude of problems.
The 'maintenance required' problem with Epson printers has absolutely nothing to do with which cartridges you are using, it is a built in page counter in your printer firmware, which has a different maximum amount for each Epson model. Don't listen to old wives tales and heresay, we are the experts and it's an Epson scam to cause a lot of people to pay for maintenance or throw their printers away.
I haven't found a model that can't be reset with the latest version of SSC Serve or the manual reset on my site.
For Epson RX500 users there is also a manual reset on my site, as the SSC Serve software won't do it for you.
When using the program & choosing your printer from the list, it may have a weird name with 'x' in the model number, this is because some configurations are for many models in a series. For example, the C46 will be listed as C4x as it is for the C42, C44 & C46 models.
I hope this helps all Epson users to overcome the Epson scam of page counting and locking out until you pay their dealers money for maintenance.
If you like what I've done for Epson users, please show your appreciation by spreading the word and perhaps buying your ink from my site.
Happy trouble free printing
