Re: problem with my printer Epson Photo Stylus RX425

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

Re: problem with my printer Epson Photo Stylus RX425

Please go to my website . 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

Yes, it is. Select CX4600(4500)/CX36x0(3500)/RX42x(430)/PM-A700.
RX42x covers RX420/RX425.
Minimise to tray, click on icon in notification area and select protection counter - reset protection counter.
Its there for a reason mind, so replace or clean the overflow sponge first!

Error message on epson rx425

Follow this link.

At the bottom of page agree to terms and install.

On the "configuration page" and in the 1st drop down screen select your printer.

On the 2nd drop down screen is where I was getting confused as I have a Epson Stylus Photo RX425 but couldn't see it in the listings, it is there, look for:-
"Epson Stylus CX4600(4500)/CX36x0(3500)/RX42x(430)PM-A700" and select.

Next click this page off and in the botom right quick launch panel right click the multi coloured printer icon.

Select the "Pretection Counter" then "Reset Pretection Counter"

There you have it, switch off and back on the printer and all should be well.........
