Someone was mentioning on the forum, that they had their Epson serviced/replaced by Epson direct. Think that it cost something like £39.00 with a new 12 month warranty.
Normally, when it states that it needs servicing, this is due to surplus ink in the cleaner tank. There is a way of cleaning this, and reseting the printer. Again this remedy was given on the forum. Sorry for not offering more direct information.
