Question about Epson Stylus RX500 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Message "parts in your printer are at end of service life. See your printer documentation.

I'm not sure how old this printer is, but it now gives this message. Your answer for another model said to use GEM and not (just?) a chip.resetter ?? What is "GEM" and what is a chip resetter? Will this solve the problem, and if so, where do I find these two items and use them??
Thanks!

Don't think it was me who spoke of gem or a resetter, but your printer is calling for the waste pads to be replaced... one normally would not bother cause it is quite a task..... after replacing the pads the machine also needs it's waste count reset which is done via dealer software ie, gem

GEM i beleive is a aftermarket version of such for some models of epson printers

All printer models are unique and software hack is difficult but search deep and wide and you may be lucky to find a reset program to suit. (but don't be supprised if later your desk is trashed when ink cant be contained by the unchanged pads and it pours out over it)

Ink cartridges on some models have chips inbuilt that count how many prints they do so they know when they are out of ink, regardless if you refill them hence the use of aftermarket chip resetters (nothing to do with your issue)

I would just simply throw it. Welcome to our creation the fantastic plastic disposable world

I am getting an end of service life message. what


The printer is telling you that some parts are worn-out -- "end of life" -- and your printer either needs to have some parts replaced. Or, replace the entire printer, after comparing the cost with an estimate of parts/labour to fix the old printer.

Reset the waste ink counter!
Assuming you have completed your modification you can reset your printers waste counter using this method (I did this and it worked on the CX6400) can't guarantee it works on all)
1. You will see big button on your printer like power on (this is on the left
2. side), black & white photocopy, color photocopy, and then the stop button (these are on the right side).
3. first turn off your printer
4. push the b/w + color + stop buttons together and hold
5. push the power on button and hold (so you'll now be holding down 4 buttons together)
6. Don't release all the buttons until you see the light indicator is blinking and then a message display on the lcd
7. release all the buttons
8. push the color button (once)
9. turn off the printer
10. turn it on again
After this one may need to reload the printer driver and locate the printer!

" parts inside your printer are at the end of their service life.


This usually happens when the waste pads become full and need to be replaced.
You can try to do it yourself like this guy did on his printer:
http://www.hm2k.com/posts/parts-inside-your-printer-are-at-the-end-of-their-service-life

you can actually just use the software to reset the printer but eventually the pads will overflow and start to leak.

The last option is too take it to Epson and ask for a quote.
