The same instructions available all over the internet for the R300 should suffice for the RX500...

In terms of resetting the waste ink counter, the SSC utility will provide the necessary compatibility as well...

It is the protection counter error, the amount of ink discharged by the printer has reached the maximum value allowed and the printer requires to be reset.

To clear the error follow the instructions you can find here:

http://myprinter.altervista.org/simplefaq/mysimplefaq.html#counter

Once the error has been cleared the printer returns operative, however to avoid further problems you should check and clean the waste ink pads where discharged ink is stored.

To reach the pads you have to disassemble your printer, you can find an exploded diagram here:

Waste ink tank/pads getting full.

Normally your remedy is to replace the "Waste Ink Pad/Pads" with a new one/ones and then reset the "Internal Waste Ink Pad Counter". The waste ink pads are normally housed in a black plastic box. They are located in the bottom of the printer, towards the front, just under where the paper starts to exit. You would have to remove the "Top Cover Assembly" to be able to get to the screw or screws that hold that assembly in place. If you cannot figure out how to remove the waste ink pad holder assembly [plastic box], you may need to actually get a SERVICE MANUAL, to refer to that removal procedure.

You may want to try doing a general search on the "Fixyourownprinter.com" printer repair site, under WASTE INK PADS or WASTE INK COUNTER RESET PROCEDURE.

Needs new ink pad


I always clean my inkjet printers using isoprophl alcohol. It dries quickly and helps remove the ink. Try that first.

Service required parts inside your printer are at the end of there service life.seer your printers documentation for details


Hi, I had the same problem with my RX500.

All you need to do is perform a reset, by pressing and holding the "Stop", "B&W", and "Power" buttons all at the same time and holding them down for at least 10-15secs. It may take a few goes as there's a bit of a nack in getting the buttons pushed at the same time.

Let me know how you get on.

Epson RX500 waste pad replacement instructions


It's quite complex, but the instructions can be found (for a price) here:

http://www.2manuals.com/product_info.php?products_id=638

I bought the instructions, but can't find a source of the pads. I am trying to clean my old ones, but they are pretty filthy. Please let me know where you got yours. Thanks. Rob.

Epson RX500


Are the lines ink? Either you have to keep cleanng the heads until they work correctly or find out where the ink is coming from, if not from dirty heads.(dirty heads means that the ink had drived and you may have to remove them and clean them with rubbing alcohol . What color are they? Replaced any of the ink  cartridge yet?

Epson RX500 poor test page


Well done. Typically, I advise only ever replacing one cartridge - replacing all is expensive and wasteful

RX500 EPSOM STYLUS PHOTO PRINTER Won't Print


I used some less expensive generic ink cartridges on my RX500 and had a similar experience with the black. If you're already using the Epson brand, done the head cleaning, realignment and nozzel checks, I'm not much help. Try Epson's support at their web site.
