Re: servicing of C 46 Epson Printer
Canon PIXMA IP2000
You may RESET the printer code first if you like or do it after you clean the pad In some cases you may need to REMOVE THE PRINT HEAD FIRST or the reset code will not work. This was true of the S900 and i960 so, remove the print head first before doing this reset. This is the correct code for the S and I (like i960) series of printers. (M series below this) 1) Power off printer 2) Hold RESUME button then press and hold POWER. (The beeper MAY sound once, or may not depending on your model.) 3) Hold POWER and Release RESUME. 4) Press RESUME twice then release both POWER and RESUME buttons. 5) When the indicator lights steady, press RESUME 4 times (for the S900, 3 times for the 8200 apparently). 6) Press power to set data. 7) Print away! For other codes for other printers and more info go here to this big forum (but try the above first) Fix Your Own Printer Generally many of Canon's models use exactly this same code, the i models use the same code, all the s models use the same code.

Basically your printer says that you need to replace the waste ink pads. If this happens for the first time to this printer you can just reset the counter using SSC Service Utility (http://www.ssclg.com/epson.shtml) or if it happened more than once you shoul first replace the ink pads and then reset the counter or the printer may overflow. That's it.
This message indicates that your waste ink pads are full and require replacing. Replacement is costly, messy and requires the printer to be taken completely apart. Most often the counter has "jumped" to the end of life number, this especially happens where 3rd party or refilled inks have been used. If you believe this to be the case and there is no sign of ink leakage and the pads look fairly clean then you can just reset the counter using special software called the SSC utility. See these sites: http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml http://inkjetprinterhelp.us/epsonSSC.html
More information about this issue and the "official" Epson resetter is available from the Epson web site, please read this link: http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/InkPadsForm.jsp
Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.
yes actually there is. the parts its talking about is the inkpad, you can send this over to an epson certifies servicer in your are to have inkpad change and they will reset the counters for it. go this link and look for a servicer near your place http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/SupportIndex.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes
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
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 C45 Service Manual". You will often find them for sale very cheaply on E-Bay.
