    This is what the error code says: Parts inside your printer are near the end of their service life. See your printer documentation. When I checked the operating manual it says to contact or visit Epson's website. Those were dead ends. I heard that all I need to do is push the two corect buttons on the Printer at the same time to reset it. But I do'nt know which two. It is working fine right now but I'd like to correct it before it stops working.

1.Turn off the printer.
2. Press the maintenance and the stop button simultaneously.
3.Turn on the printer again while holding the maintenance and the sop button.
this will reset the printer.

I applied this approach to an Stylus R300 and I don't see any more the warning that the printer is going to die any minute. I have lost two similar printers in the past. I could not even get my cartridges our when they gave up. I used a hammer and all I gat is one cartridge...

Thanks for the information ...I hope it works.

Here's 3 things you can do to get around this...depending if your printer is new and still under warranty or not (do NOT void your warranty!).

I have used all 3, but the third one was a lifesaver (AND money-saver!). About once a year I have to reset the printer using #2, but other than that....#3 is the greatest!!!

1. Try resetting it by, unplugging the power cord then while holding down the POWER STOP and MAINTENANCE buttons simultaneously while replugging the power cord caused a reset to zero on the counter. You will still have to replace the pads or redirect the waste ink tube to a receptacle on the outside of the printer, hope this helps?

2. If you go to inkjetprinterhelp.us there you will find the ssc service utility. Once you open the page click on the service utility and then choose the english version unless you can spk russian.If you then scroll to the bottom of the page and install the prog. Once you have installed the prog you will get the ssc utility logo in your bottom tray. Right click the icon and then select reset protection counter from the protection counter drop down. Once you have done this restart your computer and this should reset the system.

3. INSTALL AN EXTERNAL WASTE TANK and forget all about those gunky ink pads forever!

On the left rear of these printers is a small trapdoor held by a single screw.

Remove it, look inside (down and to your left) and you'll see the waste ink tube.

The tube is free at one end, and with a suitably curved piece of wire you can hook it and wangle the end out through the opening (you may dislodge a small piece of plastic in the process -- just put it back where it was, it's only a vibration damper.) I found the tube to be rather short....so I added an extension since I do not have room directly behind my printer for a container. I used the tubing you use with oxygen tanks or fish tank bubblers. They also make a little plastic connector so you can join the two together.

At this point, you're almost there.

All you need now is a suitable container for the waste ink, and I drilled a small hole in the trapdoor cover so you can put it back on without pinching the tube (or you could just leave it off.)

The container is a small square one with a snap-on lid, approx. 60mm square and holding about 150ml -- they're sold in sets of three for a few cents and are for making ice-blocks etc. in your freezer. Any small container will work.

Make a hole in the lid (slightly larger than the tube to let air escape) insert the tube and forget about the internal pads forever.

I've had mine in place for almost 2 yrs now and it works like a charm. If you need photos, let me know and I have a couple I can send you.

Thanks for your selflessness Steve H. describing the RESET procedure for the Epson R300 by simutaneouly depressing the POWER, STOP and MAINTENANCE switches.

I checked with Epson, via telephone, and they recommended going to an authorized dealer for ink pad replacement (approximately $100) or buy a new printer ( $150 - $250).

After completing your suggested RESET procedure successfully - I went a step further and mopped up the excess ink that was evident on the 'black ink pad' which was saturated with black ink. I used Kleenex which seemed to mop up the excess BLACK ink nicely, and continued this mopping procedure until there was no evidence of black ink on the Kleenex. There was very little evidence of spilled ink on the color pads.

Time alone will tell. So thanks again Steve - you saved me $100 to $200.

Oh yeah! I LOVE this printer.

My Epson Stylus photo R320 gave me an error saying "Service required. Printer parts are at end of service life. See printer manual for details". Which parts need replaced? thanks, Holly


It's probably going to be less expensive to REPLACE the whole printer, rather than paying a qualified printer technician $50 to $75 to disassemble the printer, change the parts (which won't be included in that charge for "labour"), to reassemble, and to test it.

You need to reset your printer. Google search for "indoreset for r320" and download it. That is a program you will use to reset your printer.

I guess your printer need to reset the counter ink pad, for reset the counter you must have a adjustment/reseter software, and for your printer type please download <a href="http://www.ziddu.com/downloadlink/7587521/sscserve4.3.exe">here</a>

I have Epson stylus photo R320 printer and it keeps on saying parts inside your printer are at the end of their life,?


You need to reset waste ink counter. Don't forget to replace or wash waste ink pad. Or just extend outlet pipe from head cleaning mechanics to outside bottle.Use SSC latest version or R320 adjusment program. Find at indoreset.blogspot.com. Or contact me if you don't find out there. It's free.

Hi, it means you must contact epson to have it repaired, which usually costs £75 + vat ie cheaper to buy a new one.
parts are too expensive to even attempt to fix the problem yourself..

Happy New Year
