You actually need to change the ink absorber.

Heres a video on how its done on the R800.

Please refer to your manual for proper localization of the ink absorber.

Doing this will get you to move on

This error occurs when your printer thinks the ink absorber in the bottom of your printer is saturated with ink. It can be reset pretty easily with a free utility.

I have written a short article and made a video guide on this very message. they can be found here: http://www.refreshcartridges.co.uk/igloo/clearing-parts-inside-the-printer-have-reached-the-end-of-their-service-life-on-epson-printers/

Hope this helps.

Epson Stylus Photo R300 My printer has stop


Hi,

I apologize for a delayed response as i was not at my desk.

I am sorry to hear regarding the problem.Unfortunately, this is a common problem on this printer.There is only one reset procedure that might work. Press and hold the ' Stop ', 'Maintenance ' and ' Power ' buttons for about 10 seconds.Then turn the printer off, and back on.

Note - You still need to get the ink absorber changed.

The repair is not economical as Epson would charge anywhere between $100 - $300 for repair. You could look for the below procedure to DIY :

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Epson programmed their printer to monitor the waste ink counter andyour printer has reached the maximum value allowed, you have to resetyour printer to clear the waste ink counter.

You may read the information regarding "end of life" and "waste ink counter" here: http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/InkPadsForm.jsp

To reset the counter, download re-setter program here, install and follow the instruction in the web site.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Service required error


Ok.. aside from the fact that you've posted under the R300 Epson model thread you're still in luck.

The CX6600 has been documented (by me admittedly) with a complete guide to fitting an external tank and resetting the waste ink counter in the printer.

http://www.octoink.co.uk/store/pages/Epson-CX6600.html

Just to note: This is a commercial site but the information provided is generic and will help you fix the problem.
