Thanks for info - Was not aware of this -

I have an Epson RX600 - Looking at "Error Messages" in [MANUAL]!! There is the exact same: - "Error Wording" - !!

Needless to say - THAT I AM NOT HAPPY TO SEE THIS!!
>>>>>Thanks for the "Heads UP" info<<<<<

I will question Epson on it until: "They surrender" & devulge secrets!

Amen
