Question about Epson Stylus CX4200 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

It won't work

Yesterday when I turned on the printer after not using it for some time, all the lights including the "E" were flashing, so I figured it needed new ink.  I bought new cartridges and replaced the old ones.  The printer worked fine for about 20 sheets of paper and then just stopped and gave me "general" error.  All the lights are now flashing when I turn it on.  If I push the ink button, nothing happens.  It won't print, it won't move the cartridges to the left when I push the button.  It is just flashing at me, non-stop. I don't have the documentation any more so I can't even look up what to do.

    When I turn on the printer all the lights flash and the print cartridges sound like they try to move, but they don't Epson Tech help is useless. They finally gave me the number of a Computer Service company that will be more than happy to help for almost the same amount of money as the printer cost.

The Epson Stylus Color 880 has 4 LEDs. If all 4 are flashing or blinking then the printer has a maintenance request error. It means that the waste ink counter has reach its limit. The remedy is to replace the waste ink pads and reset the waste ink counter. You can use the SSC service utility to reset the protection counter. You can download the utility from here http://inkjetprinterhelp.us/epsonSSC.html

You can also use the control paler to reset the counter. Timing is the key to success when you reset the counter using the control panel so keep that in mind. To reset the protection counter using the control panel (front panel):

Step 1.Turn the power on while holdint the following buttons doen. Paper feed, cleaning button. (thr paper out light will flash for 3 seconds)
Step 2.While the paper out light is still flashing press the cleaning button for 10 seconds. The following leds will flash in sequence Ink out lights black and color, Paper out light. Once the printer starts to initilize the counter should be reset. This will reset the protection counter.

I have a hp c3180 photosmart


Printer manufacturers include chips inside the catridges.When the same cartridge is used the printer reads the chip and finds that you have refilled the cartridge and returns the error. The simplest way to get around is to have have 3 empty cartridges and rotating them one after the other. This way you can fool the printer and get around the check!

Rajesh.
