Unplug the power and USB cables. Reboot the computer. If that doesn't work, reinstall the software. Here is a link for the manual. It's big so it takes a couple minutes to load.

You need to check and see if it's not on pause and it's default. You need to go to "start", "control panel", then "printers and faxes" it will bring up the printers. First make sure it's the default with a black check on it. If that's not then right-click it and select "set as default". If that's okay then right-click again to make sure that it is off pause. right-click and select "resume" if it's not up then it's okay.

Do you have the users guide?

How long has it been since you used the printer?

Reply back and I will help you to resolve, but most often the problem is the ink cartridges are dry.

It does mean that there is a problem, it may be caused by paper stuck inside, or cartridges not well placed, cartridge sensor dirty, or an internal fault.

  • Remove both cartridges.
  • Unplug printer powe cord and usb cable.
  • Wait ten minutes and plug back power.
  • After printer has cycled and is on plug back USB.
  • Start again procedure for replacing cartridges.
Check also that there is no paper inside, and that the cartridge contact inside the carriage is not dirty, in that case clean it with cotton and alcohol.

    Check also your manual, around page 63 is explained how to contact Epson when you get this error.

    Alternatively you need to use a service program, and this service utility but if you use the software in the wrong way you can damage the printer.

    Check also if ssc utility
    works on your model.

    On several epsons also the following reset works, hold down the buttons Power, Setup, and Stop for ten seconds, until printer powers off, then restart.

Epson RX600 service required. How can i reset the printer and get rid of the error message?


I just had this same error message pop up on my RX600 yesterday. There is a utility that you can d/l from the Epson website to reset the counter at the link below.

http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/InkPadsForm.jsp

The reason the service message pops up is that it is telling you that the waste ink pads are near the end of their service life and probably saturated with ink. You should still clean the waste ink pads or ink will eventually run out the bottom of your printer and create a big mess. If you do a Google search for something like "rx600 waste ink pads" there are some how-to discussions on doing this yourself. I'm going to clean mine later today.

They say it's not hard to do and you don't have to disassemble your printer, just use a toothpick or modified paperclip to remove the pads after you park the cartridges in their "replace ink cartridge" position and unplug the printer. A more detailed procedure can be found with the Google search.

Epson Stylus Photo RX600: Banging noise when turning on printer


Ok I think this is the cartridge carrier doing the banging I have had this on 2 or 3 epsons that I oncwe owned. If you clean those rails that the cartridge container slides on the banging should cease. Dont need to oil them just a damp cloth will do it. You can try sewing machine oil later. only a very small drop ( smidgen) on a cloth to wipe both rails.
