This message indicates that your waste ink pads are full and require replacing. Replacement is costly, messy and requires the printer to be taken completely apart. Most often the counter has "jumped" to the end of life number, this especially happens where 3rd party or refilled inks have been used. If you believe this to be the case and there is no sign of ink leakage and the pads look fairly clean then you can just reset the counter using special software called the SSC utility. See these sites:

More information about this issue and the "official" Epson resetter is available from the Epson web site, please read this link:

My Epson Stylus photo R320 gave me an error saying "Service required. Printer parts are at end of service life. See printer manual for details". Which parts need replaced? thanks, Holly


It's probably going to be less expensive to REPLACE the whole printer, rather than paying a qualified printer technician $50 to $75 to disassemble the printer, change the parts (which won't be included in that charge for "labour"), to reassemble, and to test it.

You need to reset your printer. Google search for "indoreset for r320" and download it. That is a program you will use to reset your printer.
