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...

How to reset Epson T10


The epson company puts some sort of an electronic time-bomb or ticker in their cartridges. I dont know if they do it for their printers too.

I am not too sure about this but it could be the reason why you are getting the message. Try some local repair shops if they know what to do to overcome this.

Wow, that's a really old EPSON printer. The life expectancy of a EPSON printer is just three years, after that, the printer wouldn't work because of the clogged permanent printing head. The authorized service center is unable to repair it because the spares are no longer supplied.
Throw it to a recycling center.

Ref my Epson R285 error message reads - parts inside your printer are at the end of their service life. How do you overcome this?


You replace the ink pad and then reset the printer so it works again. I know a place called pudsey computers www.pudseycomputers.co.uk that sells the pads or the do the whole thing for 30 odd quid. a program called SSC resets the counter which you can download off the internet, or your local epson express centre will reset the counter.

Unfortunately you cannot override this behaviour without installing a valid cartridge in the printer.

Epson printers do not have this sort of functionality as it would leave the printhead open to damage and foam clogging.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

Epson printer -parts at their end of life!


It is a labour intensive job to strip these machines and replace the pads and get them back in one piece and printing, it took me 2.5 hours to do my first one, now it still takes 3/4 of hour knowing the beast, but all epsons are the same not made for fixing just for throwing out. Besides the repair shop needing to replace 7 cheap pads you have to reset the counters that control the error, only epson dealers have access to that Eagle software program that you need to use to do it.

So in short, no they are not ripping you off and yes better off throwing it and no you cant just change the pads.

Believe it or not, you have done well to get 3 years from a inkjet, you must use gen inks.
