This usually happens when the waste pads become full and need to be replaced.
You can try to do it yourself like this guy did on his printer:

you can actually just use the software to reset the printer but eventually the pads will overflow and start to leak.

The last option is too take it to Epson and ask for a quote.

SOURCE: service life has ended on my epson stylus r320 photo printer

Thanks for your selflessness Steve H. describing the RESET procedure for the Epson R300 by simutaneouly depressing the POWER, STOP and MAINTENANCE switches.

I checked with Epson, via telephone, and they recommended going to an authorized dealer for ink pad replacement (approximately $100) or buy a new printer ( $150 - $250).

After completing your suggested RESET procedure successfully - I went a step further and mopped up the excess ink that was evident on the 'black ink pad' which was saturated with black ink. I used Kleenex which seemed to mop up the excess BLACK ink nicely, and continued this mopping procedure until there was no evidence of black ink on the Kleenex. There was very little evidence of spilled ink on the color pads.

Time alone will tell. So thanks again Steve - you saved me $100 to $200.

Oh yeah! I LOVE this printer.

I FOUND IT! I KNOW HOW TO FIX:
This saved my printer:

  1. Unplug the power and USB cables from the printer.
  2. Prepare your work area by putting scrap paper down. Have somespare, just incase. You may also require tissue paper. It is alsorecommended you use protective gloves as the ink will stain your skinfor quite some time. Its really messy, trust me.
  3. Look at the back of your epson c46 there will be a "door" a small square that removes. Take it off.
  4. There will be 1 or 2 "spongey things" inside your printer, remove them. Sounds easier than it it. Can take up to half an hour.
  5. Take the scrap paper with the pads on to your sink, turn on the hottap and hold each one under the tap using the pliers until the waterruns clear. If you have protective gloves on it may be worth squeezingthe water out also. Don't use soap ect.
  6. It is recommended that once you have done this, you let them dry.
  7. Now return the pads back into the printer.
  8. Plug in the USB and power cable and turned it ON. (Yes the lights will still flash)
Part 2:
  1. Download and install the SSC Service Utility for Epson Stylus Printers.
  2. Select your printer and model number (There is no Stylus C42 UX, so select Stylus C4x), then close the window.
  3. You will see a SSC Service Utilitiy icon (it looks like a printer) in the system tray (next to your click), and LEFT click.
  4. A menu will appear, from here you can click on “Protection counter” (its a red cross), then “reset protection counter”. You might have to do this a few times..
  5. Turn the printer power OFF, wait 10 seconds and then turn it back ON.
Good luck guys!!

Reset the waste ink counter!
Assuming you have completed your modification you can reset your printers waste counter using this method (I did this and it worked on the CX6400) can't guarantee it works on all)
1. You will see big button on your printer like power on (this is on the left
2. side), black & white photocopy, color photocopy, and then the stop button (these are on the right side).
3. first turn off your printer
4. push the b/w + color + stop buttons together and hold
5. push the power on button and hold (so you'll now be holding down 4 buttons together)
6. Don't release all the buttons until you see the light indicator is blinking and then a message display on the lcd
7. release all the buttons
8. push the color button (once)
9. turn off the printer
10. turn it on again
After this one may need to reload the printer driver and locate the printer!
