Question about Epson Stylus C88 InkJet Photo Printer
I'm getting the "Service required -parts inside your printer are near the end of their service life " etc. When I go to the website, they advise replacing the ink pad, but also advise it might be just as cheap to replace the printer. I also see someone has a walk-through for cleaning a C44, and I wonder if there is a simular walk through for the C88
This may mean that your printer needs to be reset i have all epson reseters if you need them

There's isn't a walk-through for cleaning the pads as reaching them is quite difficult without knocking the printer out of alignment.
There is a guide to fixing an external waste ink kit to the C86 (earlier model of the C88/D88) which I wrote a few years back.
The reset utility you'll need is the A10_IPR which you can read about and get a copy of from here:
Just to note though that whilst resetting on its own does work for a while you have to remember that the printer does have a finite capacity in the waste ink pads that will eventually be reached. After that, any ink can and usually does leak out of soil/short-out components in the printer itself. As a result you will only ever want to reset when you intend to resolve the actual waste problem in the near future.
