Question about Epson Stylus C40UX InkJet Printer
My printer is showing an error while at the same time the computer shows that there is no error. the printer is blinking from green to red and the computer states that it is preforming the task but nothing happens if i tell it to print. it does not print it's lights blink from red to green and that's it. if you can help me please.
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 use it to 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. This is quite straightforward once you know what to do.
If you decide to have a go at replacing the ink pads yourself, post a new comment, and I will provide further help.
