My Epson RX700 printer just stopped with an error message "parts inside your printer are at the end of their service life."
Can I fix this at home?
Thanks,

You'll probably find that that the print head is worn out (according to Epson) and it needs to be replaced. It's cheaper to buy a new printer.

The message that you received indicates the ink pad absorbers are full and prevents the printer from running because unchecked it would leak ink everywhere including outside of the unit. To fix this you need to replace the pads with new ones and reset the counters to let machine know you have changed the pads. On top of that you must download a utility program for your model that will allow you to set up the counters so the printer will run. I strongly recommend replacing your printer especially when it is a refurbished item, even Epson feels it is better to replace.

End of service life error message epson inkjet printer RX700


This refers to the internal counter, actually located in the software on the computer determing that your waste ink pads are likely saturated and need replacement. You can download software from either Epson at http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/InkPadsForm.jsp or at http://www.ssclg.com/download/sscserve.exe. Both of these software packages will allow resetting the counter. However one should either take the printer in to an authorized Epson or independent printer service company or if comfortable with messing around inside computers and peripherals, one can check the waste ink pad(s). On the RX700 there is a small access panel, on the back of the unit, on the left hand side when facing the back of the RX700. It is held in place with a Phillips head screw and small plastic latch tab on its bottom side. The pad material is clearly visible from here, with a pair of clear plastic waste ink tubes directed down into this waste ink receptacle. If this is saturated, wet and discolored, it should be replaced, before resetting the counter. Not doing so risks the excess waste ink overflowing and making a mess and possibly even shorting out some of the circuitry.

Epson RX700 printer, end of service life message


This usually means that the waste ink absorbers are full. If your printer is under warranty, you can get them dealt with and the counter reset at an Epson Customer Care center. If your printer is out of warranty, you should consider if it is worth the fix. You can get this done by Epson or an independent printer repair person. (They might sell the parts for a dyi job.)

Once that is done, you can get a reset utility from the following URL: http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/InkPadsForm.jsp . If you execute the reset without the pad replacement, you will get ink smearing on your documents after a while.

I hope this helps.
