If the ink pad is not or was not installed inside the printer, the tendency is that the counter will not respond due to a sensor that monitors the excess as well as number of prints you have already accomplished.

Logically speaking you have to install your ink pad to your printer, download and install the ink pad reset utility from the epson website
www.epson.com/ipr

note: if you will have it serviced it would cost you more than the printer itself since on a 3rd party servicer they already charge $350 all in all

PRINTER PARTS AT END OF SERVICE LIFE -ERROR MESSAGE. WHAT COULD IT BE? HOW DO I FIX IT?


that only means that the inkpad of your printer is already soaked by dried inks, this inkpad is the part of the printer is like a foam that absorbs excess inks when your printing, doing head cleaning, and head alignment, when it is soaked, the rprinter will stop working cause it can affect the output or print out, unfortunately, the inkpad is not a user replaceable part so either you go to service center, so they can replace it or better yet call epson if your printer is till coverd by 1 yr warranty, they should send you a replacement printer. thanks.

My Epson D92 printer is showing "waste inkpad saturated" How can I fix this?


Take the printer to a qualified technician, and have them "empty" (or replace) the saturated pad -- it's like replacing a wet bathroom towel, but in "miniature" -- either you wring it out, dry it out, or you get another towel from your linen closet.

EPSON CX5500 SUCKS ink....


Epson printers will clean the head if the printer is not used for a long period say a week. The only option is to switch on the computer and printer and give a noozle test every 2 -3 days. This will stop the printer from doing a head cleaning which uses the following amount of Ink

Black 1/8

colour 1/16.

Thus if the head cleaning is done 4 times your black is half empty.

thus as the saying goes either you switch on the printer every day or loose the printer

I also had the same problem and now this is what I am doing, and now the cartridge is giving a good amount of prints that too image quality

Epson Stylus CX5500 resetting; notification of need for servicing keeps popping up


Hi-

Yep chances are there is a problem with the hardware itself. On the computer where you have it connected directly, did you get an error message? if you did then it talks about part at the end of service life then that is the inkpad you are having a problem with, but if there is no error message that popped up on the computer then there might be a problem on the mainboard, call epson so that they can give you a discount if you are going to buy one from them again. you can reach them at 562-276-4382. Thanks for using Fixya!
