Re: Service required

I seem to have fixed my own question. Thanks to the "silly girl" pressing buttons. On the Epson Stylus Photo RX600 try pressing the stop button, color button, B&W button and the On button all at the same time. It starts up without that fatal red indicator with a message saying the ink tray has been emptied. Press the OK button and things are back to normal, I hope!

Parts inside in my printer are near the end of their service life

A Service Error where you get a message telling you that "Parts inside your printer at the end of their service life, contact your dealer for replacement", or "Parts inside your printer require maintenance or replacement, call your service company", is normally a Maintenance Request Error. The maintenance request error is actually a Waste Ink Ink Pad Error and usually your remedy is:

1. Replace the Waste Ink Pad/Pads with a new one/ones (many people ignore this one, and they just follow #2)
2) Reset the Internal Waste Ink Pad Counter by using SSC Utility

Download from this site and follow instructions.

I hope this information will be helpful. Thank you for using FixYa!

We're getting this Service Required message - Parts inside your printer are near the end of their service life. See your printer documentation. What part are we needing to replace?

the parts most likely to be replaced with such a message are the waste ink pads. (sponge pads that collect the ink that is used for print head cleanings). these pads are difficult to reach inside the printer (full dissassembly is necessary) and doing so is a VERY dirty job. i suggest contacting a repair center near you.

Epson RX600 service required. How can i reset the printer and get rid of the error message?

I just had this same error message pop up on my RX600 yesterday. There is a utility that you can d/l from the Epson website to reset the counter at the link below.

The reason the service message pops up is that it is telling you that the waste ink pads are near the end of their service life and probably saturated with ink. You should still clean the waste ink pads or ink will eventually run out the bottom of your printer and create a big mess. If you do a Google search for something like "rx600 waste ink pads" there are some how-to discussions on doing this yourself. I'm going to clean mine later today.

They say it's not hard to do and you don't have to disassemble your printer, just use a toothpick or modified paperclip to remove the pads after you park the cartridges in their "replace ink cartridge" position and unplug the printer. A more detailed procedure can be found with the Google search.

Apologies for the late response but this is a pretty standard issue ie: your waste counter in the printer memory has triggered a warning.

To solve it you need to either
  • Get the printer serviced which will replace the printer pads and reset the counter.


  • Modify your printer to redirect waste ink to an external waste ink tank. Then use a suitable software utility to reset the waste ink counter.

For the latter approach, you can use the SSC utility to handle the reset and there are various kits out there pre-built or you can fashion a tank yourself if you're feeling adventurous..

Hope that helps..

The RX600 does not print anymore. The screen on

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:
