Question about Epson Stylus Photo 900 InkJet Printer
Epson photo Stylus 9oo appears to be shipped with a pre-determined working life. Started receiving 'parts of this printer have reached the end of their serviceable life' message a few weeks ago, with absolutely no deterioration of print quality so carried on using. Now the two red lights flash alternatively on front of printer and it won't do anything except flash like this when turned on. Is there a patch to disengage the built in 'working life memory span'? I see others have encountered this problem. I think if it can be surmounted, the printer will go on working just fine. Andrew, Dartford, Kent, UK
This problem is not so much a pre-determined "buy a new printer" type conspiracy but simply the printers internal workings reaching a trigger point where it believes the waste ink pads in the base of the printer are close to full.
Net result is that the printer wants to have the equivalent of a nappy change.
You can easily fix the issue by resetting the waste ink counter using the SSC tool
You will also want to think about whether it's worth installing an external waste ink tank or simply cleaning out your printers pads and then putting them back in yourself. For either option you'll need to locate a service manual for it and then go from there.
If you want or need more information on waste ink issues with the Epson inkjet range then wasteink.co.uk is a good starting point.
Hope that helps.
