So I’ve got an Epson R1800 Color Inkjet printer that’s telling me “PARTS INSIDE YOUR PRINTER ARE AT THE END OF THEIR SERVICE LIFE” – that probably refers to the waste ink tank or the Ink Pads. So you have two choices, reset the tank and pads temporarily till you can buy a new printer, or replace the tank.
I’m getting a new printer so trying to reset the tank was the issue.
Get the software from Epson, don’t use the 3rd party apps that require $. Get it here!
