My Epson R300 printer is a great device and has worked flawlessly for many years, printing many DVDs and photos. Imagine my concern when I began to receive the message, “Service Required, parts at end of life. I cleaned the ink waste pads and downloaded the SSC Service Utility but was unable to remove the error message.
I found this post at: http://forums.steves-digicams.com/photo-inkjet/74044-epson-r300-r200-service-required.html and it worked! Thank you!
“Press and hold the ‘stop,’ ‘maintenance’ and ‘power’ buttons for about 10 seconds, a message will come on the screen saying counter is reset and to turn off.”
While performing this reset, the printer made a terrible noise, then told me to remove power. I pulled the plug, then reinserted and pressed the power button. The unit came back on, cycled normally and no error message.
This may work on other models, too.
