How to Reset Maintenance request 0040, Epson 9890

Did you replace the low ink cartridges? The 0040 request code is from the ink dispenser pump saying it has reached the specific number of pumps for that particular ink cartridge. Once you change out the low ink cartridge the pump will automatically reset.

Trouble codes - red and green light flashing alternately

The Waste Ink Pads in your printer are saturated with ink and the waste ink counter has exceeded its limit. The Waste Ink Pads should be replaced as soon as possible. You can overcome this problem temporarily by using the SSC utility - download from

and reset the Protection Counter. This will stop the lights flashing and restore normal operation. However, remember that eventually ink will overflow from the waste ink area and make a dreadful mess, so you must change the waste ink pads before this happens. This requires the disassembly of the printer. If you want to have a go at doing this yourself, the 820 service manual can be downloaded from here:

No ink on page

the only way to make this printer work again is a pump and cap assembly replacement. The Dura Brite inks are waterproof. As such, they dry in the tube forming crystals. As far as I have been able to determine, these crystals perforate the tube causing a loss of suction from the pump assembly.

Furthermore, a large accumulation of ink builds up at the end of the waste ink tube in the waste ink pads. The printer mechanism must be removed from the base, one of the pads must be removed, then you have to remove the ***** of ink from the end of waste ink tube. After that is done a small amount of water should be flushed through the tube to clean it. Make sure you replace the pad before you flush or you will have ink all over the place.

I have seen the tube fall off as the previous post noted. Sometimes but not always, putting that tube in place will solve the problem too. However in most instances it does not because the tube has split.

A little hint; do this repair in an area where you won't mind getting ink around. Also wear some latex gloves to keep ink off your fingers.

Photoprinter 8250 error oxc18aoloa

I had the ink system failure on my HP Photosmart 8250. Here is how I fixed promises that this is the problem with all of these failures:

Start by opening the printer up to expose the ink pump on the left hand side. Remove the left side dark grey trim, then take out the screws to remove the left side panel. You will have to use some force. I slightly damaged the plastic because I was impatient - be careful if you want it to still look nice.

The ink pump is in the bottom left. In my printer, a large gear had fallen off of the pump and was laying in the bottom of the case. I removed the belt drive to the ink pump, then removed the large pulley that the belt went around. This lets you put the gear back on the ink pump. Use a dot of glue on the shaft if you want. Now, replace the large pulley and the belt.

This fixes the problem, but does not clear the error code. To do this, go to Click on the link for your operating system, then click on, download, and use the link that says "recomend update to fix long power-on cycle and ink system failures" This clears the ink failure trouble code and lets the printer re-initialize the ink system.

Oh...put the plastic back on if you want to. Otherwise, you can leave it off and watch all the bits and pieces move around in the printer.

Again - this is how I fixed mine. No promises that this is what has caused the others to fail. The HP website says not to use the patch if you can see ink coming out of the printer. This sounds like good advice to me as the initialization process runs the ink pump for about a minute.

Empty Ink message

Try this 1# :

If you still have trouble:
unplug machine from power. Open cover and take all carts out of position. Plug machine to power again by connecting it to the wall socket. Wait until machine has done start up. When finished power on machine (if it has shut down first). Machine demands carts. Place each demanded cart into position and make sure it is secured. Answer lcd display questions. Close cover. Machine will run a cleaning cycle and come up stand-by.

If you still have trouble after that procedure, use another ORIGINAL cart. (Most brother printer  trouble is because of diffrent construction of generic ink carts and due to wrong ink).

And if there still is trouble have a look at the led control circuit board built in the cart holder it should look this:

Changing ink cartridges

Do you use generic ink carts?
Those do make a lot of trouble with different errors.
Use another cart and it should disappear.

The technique of brother printheads demands some ink to keep the printhead working. Otherwise it will dry out. Therefore the machine runs some auto cleaning cycles (about once a week).

You should set date and time and leave the printer on power (You can turn it off by pressing stand-by-fax. But do not unplug/disconnect it from power outlet. Otherwise the printers logic thinks that if the printer is reconnected that it is newly initialized and pumps a lot of ink into the waistinktank).
The amount of ink when running auto cleaning cycles is about 1/10 of the amount of the initializing one!
