Hello I hae a problem with my EPSON Stylus Pro 7800 it said maintenace request 0002 what I have to do for solving it

Its more of a fiddly job than a difficult one. Remove both end covers and drop down the tray which has the mainboard on. Loosen the tension on the carriage belt, remembering to check the belt tension on the scale before doing so, then remove the belt from the pinion of the motor. Unplug the connector for the motor from the mainboard, then undo the cable from all the various clips and pieces of tape up towards the motor. Then remove the motor and do it all again in reverse. Once its installed you will need to reset the counter to clear the error message.

I have an epson stylus photo RX500. When I turn it on it imidiately gives me an error message. saying to see documantation.. My compouter says that parts inside your computer are at the end of their...


The error you are getting is the protection counter error.

The amount of ink discharged by the printer has reached the maximum value allowed and the printer requires to be reset.

To clear the error, follow the instructions that you find here:

Once the error has been cleared, the printer should be Ok.

However to avoid further problems, you check and clean the waste ink pads where discharged ink is stored.

To reach the pads you have to disassemble your printer. You can find an exploded diagram here:

Pads to clean (or replace, CompassMicro should sell them) are parts #553 to #556, #540 and #541 listed at page #4.

Please note that CompassMicro is just a suggestion. I have not personally used this site.

Hope this helps.

It says Service Call Error 00000101 What to do???


00000101 means Ink Tubes worn out.

This error is returned when the motor exceed a number of service hours, to prevent the risk that ink tubes connected to the motor risk to break, leaking ink and compromising more parts.

The printer must be serviced by Epson.

To temporarily use the printer you can try the reset below:

  1. Turn off the printer
  2. Hold down the three leftmost arrow buttons [left-arrow] [down-arrow] [up-arrow]
  3. Turn on the printer
  4. Release the buttons
  5. A new menu will appear
  6. Press the up/down arrows to get to the "Clear Counters" menu
  7. Press RIGHT
  8. Press the up/down arrows to get the desired reset and reset all counters.

You can see the procedure explained at page 50 of the Service manual.
