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


Q: What should I do if my printer driver displays the message parts inside my printer are reaching their end of service life?

A: See the Epson Ink Pad Reset Utility page.

Epson Ink Pads Reset Utility

If your product is displaying an end of life service message, please view and complete the required information below to proceed.

Please explain the message I am getting in my printer driver that says parts inside my printer are reaching their end of service life.

Like so many other products, all Epson consumer ink jet products have a finite life span due to component wear during normal use. At some point, the product will reach a condition where either satisfactory print quality cannot be maintained or components have reached the end of their usable life. This is the normal product life cycle for highly mechanical devices like printers. This message is a warning that certain parts have reached the end of their usable life and that your printer will no longer work until it is serviced.

What parts are we talking about?

The message refers to the ink pads, which are actually a number of porous pads in the printer that collect, distribute, and very importantly contain the ink that is not used on printed pages. Ink is collected by these pads during the initial setup of the product, during cleaning cycles and when printing borderless photographs. Most users will not receive this message before the printer is replaced for other reasons. Some high volume users or those who use the printer for many years may receive this message about ink pads before other components reach the end of their usable life.

Why does my printer stop functioning when I get the message?

Epson is committed to ensuring the proper operation of all our devices to minimize the risks of property damage or personal injury during the lifespan of the product. The printers are designed to stop operating at the point where further use without replacing the ink pads could create risks of property damage from ink spills or safety issues related to excess ink contacting an electrical component.

Is there anything I can do to continue using my printer?

Epson recommends replacing the printer, but if you want to continue using it, Epson recommends having the printer serviced at an Epson Customer Care Center. You may also be able to have the ink pads replaced by an independent service provider and use the Ink Pad Reset Utility to reset the Ink Pad Counter to continue using the printer. Please note that replacement of ink pads is relatively expensive and may not be a good investment for lower cost printers because the printers' other components also may be near the end of usable life. Epson does not recommend ink pad replacement by users without technical training or resetting the Ink Pad Counter without replacing the ink pads.

Note: This utility is for Windows XP and Vista operating systems only. We hope to develop an option for Mac users as well; however, we do not have an ETA or the OS requirement at this time.

Parts inside your printer are at the end of their service life. Contact your dealer for replacement..my old printer is giving up?? please help someone?


Rest waste ink counter. SSC latest vers doesn't support. Use CX32 Adjusment program. Try find at indoreset.blogspot.com. Or contact me. The part means waste ink pad. It's nearly full.

The link Eagle tech has posted is no use to a CX3200 owner. The error is an ink overflow protection error and is fairly easy to rectify. You need to clean the waste ink pads in the bottom of the printer and then use some software to reset the internal counter. You can download all this stuff from the link below:

http://www.tradebit.com/filedetail.php/2725149-cx3200-rescue-kit-zip

A waste ink tank, does not stop the ink counter incrementing each time ink is used. The only money it will save you is from having to replace the ink pads - which you can wash out and reuse anyway.

Duh, what does the error message say? Use the status monitor to get more info about the message. Chances are it will say "parts inside the printer have reached the end of their life..."

This means the waste ink counter has hit it's limit and needs to be reset after cleaning the pads.

This rescue kit will fix you up.
