Reset waste ink counter using SSC ver. 4.30. You can find at indoreset.blogspot.com. Don't forget to replace waste ink pad, washing or extend outlet pipe from head cleaning mechanic to outside of printer.

I would like to unlock my printer from the service required mode


Assuming you are referring to an R300 then you can use the keys on the printer itself to reset the waste ink counter and get out of the "service required" mode.

1. Press and hold 'stop' 'maintenance' and 'power' buttons for about 10 seconds, a message will come on the screen saying counter is reset and to turn off.

2. Turn your printer off and then back on - job done.

IMPORTANT
When resetting the counters you should really replace the waste ink pad or fit some form of external waste ink tank, like a Printer Potty, as the pads will eventually oversaturate and start leaking waste ink out of the printer or backing up ink into the printhead causing clogging.

The R300 can be reset using a key press combination:

1. Press and hold 'stop' 'maintenance' and 'power' buttons for about 10 seconds, a message will come on the screen saying counter is reset and to turn off.

2. Turn your printer off and then back on - job done.

That's the short term fix for the waste ink counter but obviously your printer still has a fair bit of waste ink building up so I'd definitely recommend fitting some form of external waste tank or getting the printer serviced so you don't risk flooding the printer in the long run.

Hope that helps.

Epson programmed their printer to monitor the waste ink counter and your printer has reached the maximum value allowed, you have to reset your 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.

I have an Epson R320 Printer. error message;service required. printer parts are at end of service life see service manual for details. I can not find anything in the service manual about this. This printer...


This message indicates that your waste ink pads are full and require replacing. Replacement is costly, messy and requires the printer to be taken completely apart. Most often the counter has "jumped" to the end of life number, this especially happens where 3rd party or refilled inks have been used. If you believe this to be the case and there is no sign of ink leakage and the pads look fairly clean then you can just reset the counter using special software called the SSC utility. See these sites:
http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml
http://inkjetprinterhelp.us/epsonSSC.html
More information about this issue and the "official" Epson resetter is available from the Epson web site, please read this link:

EPSON PRINTER R22O


This is an indicator that the waste ink pads are getting full The answer is to reset the counters This will get it going again but, you can onlky do this a few times before it starts leaking. So 1. resetting the counter- download this utility- www.ssclg.com- install it and right click on the taskbar icon. renewing the pads - messy business- you may want to install instead an improvised waste collection tank out side the machine Take a look at www.fixyourownprinter.com and search for Epson waste ink tank
