Aspah:A Service Error where all LED's/Lights are blinking at the same time,is normally a Maintenance Request Error, which is actually a Waste InkPad Overflow Error...JUST SO YOU WILL KNOW: On most Epson's, while theprinter is in this error condition, it disables all operations,including data communication. Normally your remedy is to replace theWaste Ink Pad/Pads with a new one/ones and then reset the InternalWaste Ink Pad Counter. If you just reset the counter and don't replacethe pads, then your printers old pads will eventually overflow andnormally start leaking ink out the bottom of your printer. You may wantto try doing a general search on the "fixyourownprinter.com" printerrepair site, under WASTE INK PADS or WASTE INK COUNTER RESET PROCEDURE.You should be able to find quite a few references listed in the lastsix months and most included web-site links, for possible help on thereset procedure. Some also list links where you can purchase a SERVICEMANUAL, in case you want to try and do the service yourself...GoodLuck! Denny Conway...P.S.

Re: Epson C70 Problem by Jim (12/21/03 4:10 PM) reply + / - I have just installed colour cartridges and a black cartridge into my C70.
Myproblem is that the black cartridge is not being recognised and I aminformed by the printer that there is insufficient ink in the cartridgeand a need a new replacement. The black cartridge that I have used is agenuine epson cartridge.
I have been informed by epson help linethat either I need to install a new new cartridge or that my printerneeds to go to Epson for a maintenance check.
I cannot afford another new ink cartridge nor can I afford the return charges and maintenance bill from epson.
Can you help?
Re: Epson C70 Problem by Wes (12/21/03 4:47 PM) reply + / - Theonly two option I can think of is to return the ink cartridge asdefective or you can trick the printer into accepting the cartridge.
Youwill need to download the SSC Service Utility and click on the "ResetCounters" tab and then click the "Reset Black" tab to reset the blackink cartridge. The only problem is you will need to reset or freeze theink cartridge.
You can get the SSC Service Utility here http://inkjetprinterhelp.us/epsonSSC.html
I hope this gets your printer going again.
