If both lights are flashing, it means the Waste Ink Pads in your printer are saturated with ink and the waste ink ("protection") counter has exceeded its limit. The Waste Ink Pads should be replaced as soon as possible. You can overcome this problem temporarily by using the SSC utility - download from

http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml

and reset the Protection Counter. This will stop the lights flashing and restore normal operation.

However, remember that eventually ink will overflow from the waste ink area and make a dreadful mess, so you must change the waste ink pads before this happens. This requires the disassembly of the printer. A copy of the service manual is available from a number of sellers - just Google "Epson C44 Service Manual". You will often find them for sale very cheaply on E-Bay. Note, however, if you can find or borrow any of the C40,42,44,60,62 service manuals, as far as ink pad replacement goes, they are the same.

C43 stylus does'nt print while red and green lights stay on


If the light are flashing, it mean waste ink full. You must clean waste ink pad, and reset the counter. You can use SSC, find at indoreset.blogspot.com. But,.. you said the light are on. try to resinstall driver. after printer recognised by comp, check status monitor. Green light on is power on, and red on mean chip error/ink out error/cartridge error.

Epson Stylus C$$ Plus suspect Print-head problem Hi, I have a problem with my Epson Stylus C44 Plus. It has been out of use for over a year now and I recently bought a new set of cartridges. I installed the cartridges and carried out a head alignment, followed by a nozzle check. All colours apart from the blue colour printed correctly so I carried out a head cleaning test. This was done a few times and I even carried out a deep clean but with no results (apart from emptying the black cartridge in the process!). I assume that it could be a problem with either the print-head being clogged and/or the waste tank or sponge being clogged. Having read through this forum I think I will need to strip the printer down and give it a good clean through. One additional thing I did notice however is that the spring holding the waste tank and sponge must have become dislodged somehow, as the print-head makes a horrendous knocking noise whenever it moves to the right of the printer and it seems it is not aligning with something correctly. I moved the printer and noticed a spring had fallen out of it, after reading some posts here I assume that the spring holds this "mechanism" in place so the print-head aligns with it correctly. I keep thinking of binning it and getting a new printer but have just got 12 new carts off EBay, hence trying to solve the problem. I'm not after expert prints, just something cheap and cheerful that my eldest can use when he starts secondary school in September. Thanks in advance for any help, assistance or guidance. Paul
