Re: Needs resetting

Please go to my website . I have the latest version of SSC Service Utility to download directly onto your computer and instructions on how to use it, what to click on etc etc. Click any of the Epson links if you can't find it, everything you need to know will be there, including printer Firmware resetting which sorts out a multitude of problems.

The 'maintenance required' problem with Epson printers has absolutely nothing to do with which cartridges you are using, it is a built in page counter in your printer firmware, which has a different maximum amount for each Epson model. Don't listen to old wives tales and heresay, we are the experts and it's an Epson scam to cause a lot of people to pay for maintenance or throw their printers away.
I haven't found a model that can't be reset with the latest version of SSC Serve or the manual reset on my site.

For Epson RX500 users there is also a manual reset on my site, as the SSC Serve software won't do it for you.
When using the program & choosing your printer from the list, it may have a weird name with 'x' in the model number, this is because some configurations are for many models in a series. For example, the C46 will be listed as C4x as it is for the C42, C44 & C46 models.

I hope this helps all Epson users to overcome the Epson scam of page counting and locking out until you pay their dealers money for maintenance.

If you like what I've done for Epson users, please show your appreciation by spreading the word and perhaps buying your ink from my site.

Happy trouble free printing

Re: Needs resetting

Have you turned it off, waited ten seconds, then back on, that will usually do the trick.

Unfortunately The minds at Konica Minolta have figured out how to make the machine Inoperable if you reset the drum and or developer counters, the only way to reset the "change drum" condition on a Biz 350 is to replace the drum AND the developer and calibrate them both when you do it automatically resets the counters... sorry.

This is the result from running the machine with the maintenance code of 40 for too long (needs service parts replaced including pump cap assy and then reset counters). I have all you need (full maint manual, reset software and parts) if you need them.

Epson C45 has done very little work but is locked stating that it needs servicing. Have changed cartridges but will not unlock.

Reset the printer itself. You gonna need third party software. In your search bar key in" epson reset software " The uppermost link is the one you need start with S and end in word printer.

Read the tutorial before resetting your printer.

Hope this helps you also. Or view my posted solution regarding epson resetting. Goodluck
