I have the r265 fix, it is not an ssc program, and it only works with microsoft windows, not vista or mac, if you want the program, you will need to join my free computer help site, and download it free.
email me at ken57@talktalk.net

Please go to my website http://www.the-inkstore.co.uk . 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

My Epson R265 is sending a message saying that it


If the lights are flashing alternately and slowly (with the power light off), then the waste ink absorbers are full.

The pads are near the bottom of the printer and can either be replaced (call the service department for the parts) or rinsed clean under running water. The hard part is usually extracting them (you need to disassemble the printer most of the time). Then (if reusing the pads, wait until they are dry) reinstall them and reset the waste ink counter. The reset requires a program such as the one available here: http://inkjetprinterhelp.us/epsonSSC.html . Do not run this utility until the pads are replaced, the ink will smear everywhere. Epson used to have a link for their own reset tool but I do not see it for this printer.

However, the printer is designed that under normally usage, the waste ink absorber will be full at the expected end of life of the printer. Thus additional failures may be coming.

I hope this helps.

Both red lights are flashing and message says it needs a service. How do I reset?


If both red lights are flashing alternately your printer is locked. You need to replace the waste ink pads and then reset the printer using a ssc service utility for your printer model you can get one free on the internet unless your printer is a fairly new one

Epson r265 what does 2 red lights flashing slowley mean


It means that the ink counter needs resetting and the waste inkpad changing/cleaned. The Epson website will give you the address of a local service centre. Before paying out for that you could see if the SSC Service Utility would work for you although the R265 is not specifically listed as supported it is similar to the R270 which is. The free download is available here http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml
