Question about Epson Stylus C20SX InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Printer Acting strangely - red led appears after 13 seconds.

The Printer is an Epson Stylus C20SX. My OS system is Windows XP home. Red Led Light appears exactly after 13 seconds. What I have done: I have checked for jammed paper. I have replaced the Ink I have checked the cable connecting to Computer. Then I disconnected from the Computer and plugged in the Printer to the power supply. The same red light appears after 13 second. Subsequently I did the following: I checked all the cog wheels for improper action. I disconnected the moving printer carriage from Printer Motor I disconnected and reset all the internal connector stips and cables (with exception of the power connection). However the Red light continues to appear exactly 13 seconds after startup, even with all internal connectors out and printer carriage disconnected. What could be wrong? What should I try?

If the red error light is on by itself this indicates a Fatal Error: Fatal error indicates one of the following: ? HP sensor lever or PE sensor lever does not move smoothly. ? HP/PE sensor is defective. ? CR motor is defective. ? PF motor is defective. ? Main board is defective. ? Printer Housing is not secured with screw on the printer mechanism. You could try reflashing the firmware which sometimes helps to rectify this error.

I want free download printer driver epson stylus c20sx, plese help me

The printer is EoL (end of life) with Epson and out of support, so there are no reliable drivers available.

There are free drivers available all over the Internet for it but I am not sure I would trust any of the sites offering them or the software they are going to try and install (they probably have spyware and malware attached). If I was you I would probably think about investing in a new printer that will work with Windows 7 and Vista.

Fault with printer

Hey Bobski The Epson software should work on most versions of Windows. If you have XP or Win 2000 you should be OK. It could be that you have tghe dodgey SSC Utility from Russia, which is not compatible with every model and I have in fact heard that it can wreck machines by writing the wrong info to the mainboard - so beware. I looked on my usual source for these utilities but did not see your listed - you should email the folks at and ask them to supply you the reset utility for windows. They should be able to get you up and running again.
