This error occurs when your printer thinks the ink absorber in the bottom of your printer is saturated with ink. It can be reset pretty easily with a free utility.
I have written a short article and made a video guide on this very message. they can be found here: http://www.refreshcartridges.co.uk/igloo/clearing-parts-inside-the-printer-have-reached-the-end-of-their-service-life-on-epson-printers/
You can get this counter reset at a shop, you MAY be able to do it yourself.
This message usually comes up when the waste ink pad is getting full.
The quick answer is ......
Press and hold 'stop' 'maintenance' and 'power' buttons for about 10 seconds, a message will come on the screen saying counter is reset and to turn off. This may work...

I have had a R300 for a while now and had a few cartridges in it. Recently a message came up on the screen 'parts inside your printer are at the end of their life' and the printer refused to work! After searching the web it appears to be a waste ink counter, but I could not find any info on resetting it. So I tried pressing different combinations of buttons on the printer and success.
Press and hold 'stop' 'maintenance' and 'power' buttons for about 10 seconds, a message will come on the screen saying counter is reset and to turn off.
Thats it turned my printer back on and all works fine again.

Turn Off the printer and Hold Down The stop, Maintenance (Ink/Jam) and the Power Buttons For 10 Seconds and the printer will come on and say " Finished Turn printer power off " press power button and then press it a gain it should fix it
There is a counter inside the printer, which counts the amount of use the printer has done. When this counter reaches a preset limit, it shuts the printer down and displays the message you have mentioned. There is a reset program on the net to reset this counter and enable the printer to work again. I cant remember the name of the program, but I'm sure you will find it, if you google r300 reset.
