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.

    I already knew what you said. I know that some software exist to reset those counter, it is that software I am looking for!
    I have been using some SSC service in the past for an other printer an it gives you the ability to reset the counter to 0. I know what to do to make sure there will be no ink spillage.

SOURCE: reset ink-pad counter on epson stylus photo 1400

Hi,

The simplest way to do this is to grab a copy of the A10_IPR utility that Epson distribute to their customers...

The utility is available to North American customers if you register no this site page http://www.epson.com/ipr/

The utility is also know to be available in the wild if you search for "waste ink ipr".

Just remember to scan any download using a virus and malware scanner before you attempt to use it as some utilities contain trojans or similar nasties.

Hope that helps.

Hi
this can mean number of things, but most likely your 'waste ink' tank is full. You need to either get the printer serviced or reset the ink counter. You can find more information and link to a reset utility here:

Waste ink goes to external tank but I need to set the counter. On a CIS system which has been reset


The free SSC utility which will reset the waste ink pad protection counter in most Epson inkjet printers can be downloaded from
http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml. Remember though, if you don't change the ink pads, there will be an increasing danger of ink leakage from your printer, particularly if you tip it up for any reason - VERY messy, and it can clog up your printer mechanisms.

I need to change or clean the ink pads on my Espon Stylus RX620. The only authorized dealer is over 100 miles away.


Ok... Don't panic... There is another option which is to reset the waste in counter and fit some kind of external waste ink tank.

All the information you need to do it yourself is provided here:
http://www.continuousink.info/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4141

That thread includes information on how to perform the reset without requiring a utility... The process of fitting an external tank is also covered.

Reseting the protection counter at Epson 1400


You will need to google using the keywords:

"adjustment utility waste counter epson 1400"

There are some utilities available but all come either at a cost or as part of a kit. There is currently not freely available utility (SSC is not yet compatible).

Hope that helps.
