Hi

This problem is probably caused by a blockage in the ink waste pads. Over time, particularly with increased nozzle cleans the pads get saturated. These can be replaced by an Epson Engineer at a cost of about £30-£40 but probably more effective to buy a new printer. This usually happens when the printer is between 2-5 years old.

Hope this helps

Ink light and paper light flash alternatively, printer does not work


Hi - According to the Epson manual that error indicates that paper may be blocking movement of the print head.
Turn off the printer, then open the cover and remove any jammed paper or foreign objects. Turn the printer on. If the lights continue to flash you're most likely going to need a dealer service.
Hope it's the paper.
Good Luck, Mikeywaf

yes, this means that the ink waste counter is already in its peak and you need to reset it. try to download the inkpad reset utility through your computer. you will know all of the details from there on once you read them.

Both the ink and paper feed button are flashing (Epsom c66 printer)


check for a paper jam or an ink cartridge jam which was not properly aligned. usually thse are reasons. also check your ink levels and never touch the part of the ink cartridge connected to the printer. just keep pressing cancel or X, cancel the documents, then load another paper then press on start copy. this should work.

Epson stylus c66 is new but in printing paper comes out blank


Normal 0 Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Epson Stylus C66 inkjet Printer does not print !


Have you tried a cleaning cycle? If not, try one. Now run a nozzle check using the status monitor (right click the little printer icon in the bottom right corner of the screen and select nozzle check). Is there any sign of ink on the paper. Try up to three cleaning cycles. If ink is now flowing, but not yet perfectly, don't carry out any more cleaning cycles. Just leave the printer for 24 hours (to allow any air in the print head to disperse). Then repeat the cleaning cycle/wait process. It may take a while to restore a perfect nozzle check print. If these actions produce no positive results, report back.

Red lights flash alternately


Your machine has hit the Ink Overflow Protection Counter Limit. Sounds dreadful but fairly easy to fix.

Get this C66 Rescue Kit and follow the instructions. your printer should spring back to life in no time.

Turn the printer off. Open up the cover and check for any obstructions inside the printer. Double check if the ink cartridges are properly plugged in and the tray cover is closed. Turn the printer back on. If you still see the error message, it means that you are having a hardware issue. Then try to contact Epson Technical Support.

If your having an error that says "Parts inside the printer are at the end of there Service life" it means that you ink pad is full/ what you can do is change your ink pad and then download an ink pad reset utility so that you can reset the settings/ Make sure to change ink pad before you reset it becuase ink will leak if you don't change it. For the flashing lights, try to check for obstructions inside the printer if not, make sure that ink clicked in and the cover for the tray is closed
