The waste ink absorber pad under the ink head parking station is full of ink, or the printer assumes it is. Usually you have to disassemble a substantial portion of the printer to get it out. Often, you can wash out the pad with soap and water, rinse well, let it dry and put it back in. Most printers have some sort of reset procedure you need to follow to cancel the ink pad warning and get back to normal operation.

You may get some more service out of the ink cartridgeby ignoring the message. If the cartridgeis used up, replace it.

Parts inside your printer are near the end of their service life. See your printer documentation. _ Epson R200 printer.


Regarding the Epson Artisan 800, I must thank FixYa and ask that the search for a solution be discontinued.Yesterday, I had an unfortunate accident while trying to unclog the print head which had been printing poorly over the last three months. I used a syringe to force a solvent solution through the clogged head. To my utter surprise the supply line exploded with a loud "POP" meanwhile spraying ink all over the place. At this point it was clear that it was pointless trying to redeem the old Artisan 800. Thank you FixYa. Henry.

Q: What should I do if my printer driver displays the message parts inside my printer are reaching their end of service life?

A: See the Epson Ink Pad Reset Utility page.

Epson Ink Pads Reset Utility

If your product is displaying an end of life service message, please view and complete the required information below to proceed.

Please explain the message I am getting in my printer driver that says parts inside my printer are reaching their end of service life.

Like so many other products, all Epson consumer ink jet products have a finite life span due to component wear during normal use. At some point, the product will reach a condition where either satisfactory print quality cannot be maintained or components have reached the end of their usable life. This is the normal product life cycle for highly mechanical devices like printers. This message is a warning that certain parts have reached the end of their usable life and that your printer will no longer work until it is serviced.

What parts are we talking about?

The message refers to the ink pads, which are actually a number of porous pads in the printer that collect, distribute, and very importantly contain the ink that is not used on printed pages. Ink is collected by these pads during the initial setup of the product, during cleaning cycles and when printing borderless photographs. Most users will not receive this message before the printer is replaced for other reasons. Some high volume users or those who use the printer for many years may receive this message about ink pads before other components reach the end of their usable life.

Why does my printer stop functioning when I get the message?

Epson is committed to ensuring the proper operation of all our devices to minimize the risks of property damage or personal injury during the lifespan of the product. The printers are designed to stop operating at the point where further use without replacing the ink pads could create risks of property damage from ink spills or safety issues related to excess ink contacting an electrical component.

Is there anything I can do to continue using my printer?

Epson recommends replacing the printer, but if you want to continue using it, Epson recommends having the printer serviced at an Epson Customer Care Center. You may also be able to have the ink pads replaced by an independent service provider and use the Ink Pad Reset Utility to reset the Ink Pad Counter to continue using the printer. Please note that replacement of ink pads is relatively expensive and may not be a good investment for lower cost printers because the printers' other components also may be near the end of usable life. Epson does not recommend ink pad replacement by users without technical training or resetting the Ink Pad Counter without replacing the ink pads.

Epsonr220 service required


If the message/error you're getting is:
"Service required"
...or...
"Parts in the printer have reached the end of their service life"
(you get the idea!).

... then your problem is that the waste ink pads in the base of the printer need replacing and a little searching on google using keywords "R220 epson waste ink service" should get you everything you need to:
- reset the waste ink counter
- install an external waste tank

After that it's really a case of carrying on as before... Appreciate this is late in the day but hope it helps.

Service life has ended on my epson stylus r320 photo printer


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.
