Question about Epson Stylus RX425 Multifunction All-In-One InkJet Printer
Hello. I have problem with my printer Epson Photo Stylus RX425. It doen't print, all lights on it are flashing and message "Parts inside your printer are at the end of their service life. See your printer documentation." pops up everytime I want to printe something. My printer is not so old. I have installed SSC Service Utility software but it didn't help. Can you advise something? Thanks
This indicates that the waster ink chamber is getting full. To clean it out means dimantling the whole machine bacuse it sits in the base of the machine and is a series of absorbant pads.- they need rinising and drying. However this waring is an electronic fudge based in the number of pages. Using SSC right click on the taskbar icon and click on 'Reset All counters' You can also resetby pressing a combination of the buttons whilst switching the machine off then back on. Which buttons? Good question - different models differnt button combinations to you will have to work through them. You may find some help at www.fixyourownprinter.com

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
