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

I had this problem and it turned out to be the waste ink pad in the bottom of the printer. There is a moisture sensor in the printer that keeps track of how saturated this pad is and when the counter reaches a certain level the printer does what you have described. The solution is to open the small access panel on the back of the printer and re-route the waste ink tube into some sort of container. Try Googling "R200 Waste ink hack" or something similar, I'm sure you'll find an in-depth guide with photos. While you're at it, Google "sscserve.exe", which is a little service utility that lets you reset the waste ink counter (amongst other things).

10 minutes and your printer will be working again.

Good luck.

The waste ink pad needs to be replaced or cleaned AND the service software used to reset the internal counter. You cn download tthis online.

You have to dis-assemble the printer to get at the pad. You can clean the pad with agressive rinsing till it is a very light gray color. (A lot of ink will be flushed out!)

Problem


this happened to me and cost me £1 to get a fix from ebay. so here it is for free. The ink pad under where the printer head parks is full.Turn the printer on. Hold the stop maintenance and power buttons down for about 10 seconds. You will hear a horrible grinding noise. PULL OUT THE MAINS CABLE. Turn the printer back on and pull the mains cable out when the head moves to the left. Use kitchen roll to soak up lots of the ink. Use kitchen roll to soak up the ink about once a month. Worked for me for over a year now
