Replacing the pads is costly, messy and requires the printer to be taken completely apart. If you have little or no experience of stripping down printers it is best left to a proffessional. Contact Epson to find your nearest service centre, but remember to get a quote as it may be more economical to replace the printer. Sometimes the counter can "jump" to the end of life number, this especially happens where 3rd party or refilled inks have been used. If you believe this to be the case and there is no sign of ink leakage and the pads look fairly clean then you can just reset the counter using special software called the SSC utility.

the pads need to get replaced, and the unit needs to be reset.
estimated cost for parts and labor is about $80.
you can go to epson website and get emailed back a program to reset it, but you will need to read the disclaimer.
if you dont repace the pads, the printer will start to leak onto its surroundings
