Epson Service Call Errors

Epson continue to improve their printers and with every generation both quality, speed & reliability go from strength to strength but occasionally things do go wrong. When they do, the control panel will indicate the problem with a series of codes. Not all codes are trouble, some are merely service requests which will crop up depending on the printer usage. Unfortunately it isn't an exact science as some error codes may actually mean something else related further down the mechanical line. The following codes relate to the Stylus Pro series which can all be fixed.

Maintenance Tank Error

Whenever a head clean, ink charge or borderless over spray occurs the ink has to go somewhere. Unfortunately it doesn't just disappear so any ink that doesn't make it on to paper makes it's way to specially designed porous pads which act like a sponge to lock in excess ink. Over time theses get full and when they do a message similar to the image on the right appears. If you are looking to purchase a replacement maintenance tank why not visit our main e-commerce site where you can order consumables direct to your door. Most of the 17"+ Stylus Pro printers use the C12C890191 maintenance tank, where as the 3800, & the 3880 use the C13T582000 maintenance cartridge, but the recently introduced 7700 & 9700 had to be different so they use the C12C890501 maintenance tank.

Maintenance Tank

Unlike the domestic inkjet printers, the Pro series is designed specifically for the high end market. With down time costing thousands of pounds a simple problem like saturated porous pads must be dealt with promptly. Replacing these in a smaller Stylus printer is no simple job; the printer needs to be completely dismantled to gain access to the pads which are normally in the bottom of the chassis. This is not the case with the newer larger printers as the porous pads are located on the sides of the printer with anywhere between one to even three on the Stylus Pro 11880 64" wide beast. Simply pull out the container and replace it with a fresh new one.
