Hi, have an Epson R200, and a "Parts inside your printer are near the end of their service life." message has appeaered. The printer still works at the moment. The most common cause seems to be the waste ink pads which can be taken out washed and replaced, but the counter needs resetting. There's program called SSCSERV.exe which is used for servicing the printer and can tell me if it is the ink pads which need replacing, but every download I've found triggers Avast, which says a trojan was found while instaling the program. Can anyone help? Is this likely to be a false alarm? Does anyone have a clean version they can send me? Thanks.
I assumed the counter went down to 0 and the pads would be full then. The counter is currently on 19854, and a quick search on google says that they warning comes on somewhere between 20k and 45k which seems a lot of variation, anyway as I'm approaching that I guess that's proably the problem.
