SOURCE: service life has ended on my epson stylus r320 photo printer

I have had a R300M for a while now and had a few cartridges in it. (Mostly Compatible Cartridges not OEM) Recently a message came up on the screen 'parts inside your printer are at the end of their life' and the printer refused to work! 
After searching the web it appears to be a waste ink counter, but I could not find any info on resetting it. 
Tried pressing different combinations of buttons on the printer and success. (Found Ink counter reset)

Press and hold 'stop' 'maintenance'(ink button) and 'power' buttons for about 10 seconds,(while printer is on) a message will come up on the screen saying counter is reset and to turn off. 

Thats it, turned my printer back on, and all works fine again. 

I hope this helps R300/R300M owners out!
(Also I have email into Epson Support, can't wait to hear what they say the problem is for the fix!)
Good Luck,
Steve H.  :-)

SOURCE: Parts inside your printer are at the end of their service life. See your printer documentation

I FOUND IT! I KNOW HOW TO FIX:
This saved my printer:

  1. Unplug the power and USB cables from the printer.
  2. Prepare your work area by putting scrap paper down. Have somespare, just incase. You may also require tissue paper. It is alsorecommended you use protective gloves as the ink will stain your skinfor quite some time. Its really messy, trust me.
  3. Look at the back of your epson c46 there will be a "door" a small square that removes. Take it off.
  4. There will be 1 or 2 "spongey things" inside your printer, remove them. Sounds easier than it it. Can take up to half an hour.
  5. Take the scrap paper with the pads on to your sink, turn on the hottap and hold each one under the tap using the pliers until the waterruns clear. If you have protective gloves on it may be worth squeezingthe water out also. Don't use soap ect.
  6. It is recommended that once you have done this, you let them dry.
  7. Now return the pads back into the printer.
  8. Plug in the USB and power cable and turned it ON. (Yes the lights will still flash)
Part 2:
  1. Download and install the SSC Service Utility for Epson Stylus Printers.
  2. Select your printer and model number (There is no Stylus C42 UX, so select Stylus C4x), then close the window.
  3. You will see a SSC Service Utilitiy icon (it looks like a printer) in the system tray (next to your click), and LEFT click.
  4. A menu will appear, from here you can click on “Protection counter” (its a red cross), then “reset protection counter”. You might have to do this a few times..
  5. Turn the printer power OFF, wait 10 seconds and then turn it back ON.
Good luck guys!!

SOURCE: service required epson stylus dx 4850

Hi,

Like most Epson inkjet printers this message is to warn you that the waste ink pads are expected to be in need of replacement soon.

The options open to you are:

  • Get the printer serviced by a registered Epson printer tech. Usually costing as much, if not more than the printer
OR
  • Reset the waste ink counter using a suitable utility and then installing an external waste ink tank to collect the waste ink.

The latter is much more cost effective and you can either source the parts for a tank yourself of purchase one of the kits available on ebay or in a number of other stores including my own :)

The reset utility is available via mediafire but you MUST scan it thoroughly for any trojans, virus or other malware before you attempt to use it. Then, if all is clean, check the instructions in detail and follow them carefully.

All in all, it's about half an hour to an hour of your time to complete this for the first time.

Hope that lot helps.

Martin

Spooler service is not running Model Z32


There are several ways to resolve printer spooler error, probably because there are many variations of this error.

The error caused by faulty software can be resolved by deleting all the information found in the directory.

Thereafter, navigate to the Control Panel, click on Administrative Tools and then services icon.

Find the service labeled Print Spooler, highlight it and restart the process. If that doesn't work, the program might be corrupted.

Click on start, then Run. Search for the document labeled services.msc, and this will trigger the opening of another window.

On this window, scroll down and click "Print Spooler". Check its setting and turn on automatic mode.

Click Okay, and restart the machine. If you're lucky, this might be all you have to do.

Still doesn't work? Navigate to the Add/Remove Programs screen of the Control Panel.

Find the all the software responsible for making the printer run including the drivers, and uninstall them. Be sure to be thorough about it, or the problem may not be solved.

Download the latest copy of your printer's software from the manufacturer and reinstall it.
