I know my Printer has had a long and useful life, but it has decided to give up the ghost when I really need it! It won't print from my computer telling me " error - some parts in your printer are at the end of their life, needs servicing"! Is there a way around this please? Obviously servicing is out of the question so a new printer would be the way to go, but I hate this built-in obsolescence world we live in!
Thanks for that oldal but I've tried 3 times now and the download was very slow (for .94MB)so I closed the web page in case there was something untoward going on!! I know I'm paranoid! But that's just the way it is!!
However I suspect you will need to open the printer and empty the waste ink tank(wash sponges)see here before running the utility, have done this on a few Epson printers quite successfully. Still running a C600 and CX42.
Thanks Fruit Bat, have just downloaded SSC 4.30 and very quickly too! Will give it a whirl later!
As regards the link to removing the waste ink pad; there weren't any pictures to show me how to remove the "middle housing" and the "ASF (?) unit", although I reckon my husband will fathom it out given enough time!!
This forum is brilliant!!
Tried the SSC Re-set Utility but it seems to be for Ink Cartridge problems which I don't have. As I said at the beginning my Printer Control Panel is flashing this message "Printer error - see your documentation and call service if necessary" whilst the desktop Epson Status Monitor is saying "parts in your Printer are at the end of their service life. Contact your Dealer for replacement"? Is this really just because the ink pad is full???
