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

SOURCE: RX620 "Ink Cartridges cannot be recognized"

Found the solution at
http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/forums/printer/54833

Try pressing down on the cartridges after inserting them and closing the top of the cartridge carriage. Worked like a champ on my R320 printer!
Cleaning the contacts on the cartridge with a soft tissue may help too.

SOURCE: Epson R320 printer will not recognize any of the ink cartridges

I tried two things of which one solved the problem. I am not sure which. Secondly, I have an R260 printer which is a less featured member of the printer family uses Claria inks like R360 and R380. I called Epson and they simply sent me replacement cartridges for the two black ink cartridges with which I had a problem. My printer did not recognize these new cartridges either. I noticed that both the ones I bought and the replacement ones have a slot hole near the green chip on the cartridge. The empty cartridge did not have this slot. They just had some circular depressions. So, I put a piece of masking tape over the slot and tried again but still no luck. However, when I removed the cartridge, this time a small piece popped out. This piece connects to pins on both sides. So, it is obviously an interface between the cartridge and the printer. I pressed this piece back in, replaced the cartridge with the tape on it back it and, voila, it works. Most likely this interface piece was loose and simply pressing on the cartridge didn't get it in far enough or who knows. You maybe able to take thiis piece out and replace it or merely push down on it with a pen but first, flash a light on it first to see if it is not sitting awkwardly.

SOURCE: "Ink cartridges cannot be recognized" when using genuine Epson

i had this happen to me twice with two different people, it is highly possible that your black inks are defective, its also highly possible that one of the other inks are causing this error. take them all out, and put one and see what happens, do this one at a time until you see something screwey.

also possible, the contacts on the printhead are dirty or are pushed in.

also possible, bad printhead.

Hello I have replaced ink to the printer and i have this error num 10000160 do you have solution to this problem. I try to reset without results. Itzik


Many of the Epson printers ink cartridges have a sensor thatallows the printer and the associated software knows when to replace theprinter ink cartridges (even when the cartridges have ink within them) and whenthe printer needs to be cleaned. You mayreceive error messages if that sensor is faulty. In that case you shouldreplace that sensor. Hope this will help you. Good Luck.

My Canon MP530 is giving 6A00 error message and alarm light is flashing along with copy button. i have replaced empty ink cartridges with new ones. Can anyone help, please?


Error code 6A00 indicates an error occurred in the AP motor during purging operation. You need to replace sheet feed unit, logic board assy and purge unit to fix it. Before replacement of the logic board assy, check the waste ink amount (by service test print or EEPROM information print). If the waste ink amount is 7% or more, also replace the ink absorber kit when replacing the logic board assy.

I have an Epson 4000 which has a clogged nozzle


I have an Epson 4000 which I started using new in Sept 2004 and my magenta is clogged too. I've gone through 2 maintenance tanks trying to clear it, (and LOTS of ink), but the magenta is still blocked. I even tried this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3NR8g4qUAJc trick but it didn't seem to work. I hope you have better luck.

Colour Ink Tank error


I have the same problem, so far no solution found.
Still searching, it is not the microswitch and it is not the printhead, some board assy i think.
Suggestion from Canon: send it in for repair, $100 !
