Epson Stylus Photo RX500 Model C171A Printer flashes up "service required , parts of your printer are at the end of their service life" See your printer documentation. What to do? Stan...


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:

Printer sending message


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.

Restting waste tank counter


Hi,

You can reset this using the SSC utility available via this site:
http://www.inkjetprinterhelp.us/epsonSSC.html

The main site is different but the link above includes a much better guide on how to use it.

It's important to note that you will need to deal with the waste ink pads and/or redirect the waste ink tube to an external tank to ensure you do not flood your printer with waste ink when the pads in the base of the printer become over-saturated.

The information for dealing with this is provided here:
http://www.octoink.co.uk/store/pages/Epson-RX420.html

... whilst it's for a different printer model, the general principles are the same so it should help get you sorted.

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.

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.
