If your printer stops printing and gives a "Service Required" or "Service End of Life" error, there is software available that can help override this restriction by successfully reassigning the page counter to its initial seed value. Read on to find out more.
What do i do if my Epson ink pad is at the end of its service life?
Long and continuous use of printer over an extended period of time will prompt the printer to indicate that certainparts of the printer are about to expire. This however, is not always true. The printer is set to display the "'Parts of Your Printer Are at The End of Their Service Life" message after printing a certain number of pages. The number of pages depends on the exact model you are using. This means the message you are seeing is not caused by faulty equipment - it is a response to having used it a set number of times.
To continue the life of your printer, you must reset the printer's internal waste counter. In the early 2000s, the solution to this problem was the free SSC utility, but it has not been updated for a long time, so it only works with very old printers and old versions of Windows.
Is there any replacement for the SSC utility?
Since 2009, there is a WICReset utility to reset the waste ink counter, but it is paid. To reset, you need to purchase a one-time digital key. The price of one key for the USA and other countries is 7.86 euros (excluding VAT), and for the UK 9.42 euros (including VAT). After you have purchased a key, you will receive an email containing your digital key with which you can download the tool.
WICReset is designed for Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 10, 11 and Linux Debian, and a similar iWIC tool from the same developer supports Mac OS from version 10.7. After you have purchased a key, you will receive an email containing your digital keys.
