Hi,

If I may add or an alternative...

Assuming no hardware problem and/or be it end of life, there is a software utility for most Epson printers that is intended to restore the printer to all factory default settings (including end of life). It is SSC Service Utility for Epson Stylus Printers. Information about the utility may be found here. The download is here. Your particular model number may not be included but it may be worth your while to still download, install and check.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Hi,
The printer has reached EOL ie end of life . The best resolution to your problem would be to replace the printer. You would be able to get a decent all in one printer for under 65$.

Thanks

    it appears to be a waste ink counter, the waste ink needs to be emptyed / cleaned or replaced



    ones that is done heres how to reset it



    Press and hold 'stop' 'maintenance'(ink button) and 'power' buttons for about 10 seconds,(while printer is on) a message will come up on the screen saying counter is reset and to turn off.

    turn the printer back on and it should work.



    You can try this even without cleaning the waste ink but I recommend you contact espon about the waste ink replacement service or instructions on doing it yourself.



    I suspects is a failry easy job.

    solution by a trinzo



    Service Required Parts Inside your printer is at the end of service life.This message refers to the ink pads, which are actually a number of porous pads in the printer that collect, distribute, and very importantly contain the ink that is not used on printed pages. Ink is collected by these pads during the initial setup of the product, during cleaning cycles and when printing borderless photographs. Most users will not receive this message before the printer is replaced for other reasons. Some high volume users or those who use the printer for many years may receive this message about ink pads before other components reach the end of their usable live.

    The best solution that we can advice regardding this error message are the following:
    1. Download the Epson Ink Pad Reset Utility at http://www.epson.com/ipr

    2. Since the ink pad is full. It is recommended to send the printer to the nearest authorized epson service center.

I have an epson photh R300. The ink and paper light blinks. i put all new ink in it and it says "printer parts at end of service life." It won't move or do anything after that all I can do is...


the printer's counter shuts the printer down after "x" number of prints, since the ink-pad is typically saturated with excess ink at that point. You won't have to take it to get serviced if you simply blot the excess ink from the ink-pads and reset ther counter. To reset the counter, download this program and install.

http://inkjetprinterhelp.us/epsonSSC.html or http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml remember to blot excess ink off the ink-pad, and then follow the instructions to reset the counter. Good luck!!! JohnsGroovyWebsite.com
