The information you need has been better illustrated on this site:
http://www.inkjetprinterhelp.us/epsonSSC.html

However it's important to note that sometimes your problem may actually be a "General Error" which is different from a "Service Required" issue.

If you're still having problems, please report back and I'll do what else I can to help.

Epson L210 printer's ink pad is at the end of life service, how to reset


Buy a new ink pad. That's the part directly under the print head when the cartridge is parked. It's an absorbent pad that catches the ink when you clean the nozzles.

Service reqired The printer's ink pads are at the end of their service life. Please contact Epson support.


Not all the ink pulled from the ink-cartridges gets sprayed onto the paper.
Some of it ends-up in an absorbative pad.
Eventually, those pads get saturated with ink, and need to be "serviced".
Take the printer to any qualified computer-technician, for that servicing.

My Epson R265 is sending a message saying that it


If the lights are flashing alternately and slowly (with the power light off), then the waste ink absorbers are full.

The pads are near the bottom of the printer and can either be replaced (call the service department for the parts) or rinsed clean under running water. The hard part is usually extracting them (you need to disassemble the printer most of the time). Then (if reusing the pads, wait until they are dry) reinstall them and reset the waste ink counter. The reset requires a program such as the one available here: http://inkjetprinterhelp.us/epsonSSC.html . Do not run this utility until the pads are replaced, the ink will smear everywhere. Epson used to have a link for their own reset tool but I do not see it for this printer.

However, the printer is designed that under normally usage, the waste ink absorber will be full at the expected end of life of the printer. Thus additional failures may be coming.

I hope this helps.

Lookin to bypass service required for epsom r265


Hi, I have come across this problem with Epson printers in the past. What it is wanting you to do is send it in for a 'service'. Actually it's just the waste ink pad inside the printer that needs to be cleaned or changed and often this pad is not full with ink at all and therefore the service indicator and waste ink counter can be safely reset. A niffty piece of free software is avaiable to do just this. Go to this site: http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml and download the latest version. Operating instructions are on the site and it's very easy to use. This will save you quite a bit of money for now but I would remommend that the next time a service warning comes up that you should then have the printer serviced as eventually the waste ink pad will become full and need cleaning or replacing.

Epson 1280


The ink jet printers have ink absorbing pads to catch and accumulate ink used to clean the printheads. The counter on MB counts number of head cleanings and printer startups (at every start up the heads are cleaned) and at preset number of cleaning alerts the operator that "printer needs maintenance" and sets the red light. You probably need a change ink absorbing pads (or wash them and dry 'em up) and then make a reset the count using printer Service Utility (can be downloaded from the web). To get to the ink absorbing pads is not easy - you need to remove the printer case - I am not familiar with 1280, but I did that on Epson 3000 & 5000 printers. In many cases the pads are actually OK , but the MB reaches the count and flags the pads.

Canon PIXMA MP130 'waste ink absorber' message


If the error message is ""ink waste absorber almost full"

1) Enter SERVICE MODE By pressing Menu-Scan-Copy-Scan
2) Enter NVRAM by pressing OK
4)Enter ABS-M LEVEL by pressing <--- or ---> then OK
5)SET ABS-M LEVEL TO 0
6)OK
7)STOP/RESET"

If the error message is "" bottom ink waste absorber almost full"
Set "ABS-P" level to 0. Then "OK" and "STOP/RESET"

To clean the absorber, open the cover, and there are 2 small pads under where the cartridges normally sit. Put a pad of absorbent kitchen towel on top of the pad and press down a few times. The towel should absorb most of the ink. To give it a really good clean, turn the printer upside down while holding the kitchen towel over the pads and press a few times. You'll get more ink out.

It's a good idea to wear disposable gloves when you do this.
