Question about Epson Stylus RX500 All-In-One InkJet Printer
The error you are getting 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 that you find here:
Once the error has been cleared, the printer should be Ok.
However to avoid further problems, you 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:
Pads to clean (or replace, CompassMicro should sell them) are parts #553 to #556, #540 and #541 listed at page #4.
Please note that CompassMicro is just a suggestion. I have not personally used this site.
Hope this helps.
