Epson printer -parts at their end of life!

Still reads "parts inside your printer are at the end of their life"

My Epson worked beautiful for 3 years and the warning came up Parts at the end of their life. It still worked beautiful and then shut down. I would think that it should show bad functions but shut down almost if commanded to do so.

It cost $37 to find out that the ink pads were saturated or something like that and it would cost $147 to repair it./ I can buy a new one for $75 more.
Can I not replace the pads myself? How can I trust that the certified repair shop is not making too much on an uninformed person?

Re: Epson printer -parts at their end of life!

It is a labour intensive job to strip these machines and replace the pads and get them back in one piece and printing, it took me 2.5 hours to do my first one, now it still takes 3/4 of hour knowing the beast, but all epsons are the same not made for fixing just for throwing out. Besides the repair shop needing to replace 7 cheap pads you have to reset the counters that control the error, only epson dealers have access to that Eagle software program that you need to use to do it.

So in short, no they are not ripping you off and yes better off throwing it and no you cant just change the pads.

Believe it or not, you have done well to get 3 years from a inkjet, you must use gen inks.

Service life has ended on my epson stylus r320 photo printer

Hi, it means you must contact epson to have it repaired, which usually costs £75 + vat ie cheaper to buy a new one.
parts are too expensive to even attempt to fix the problem yourself..

Happy New Year
