This indicates a so-called "fatal" error. Because your print-head cannot fully move into its parking position on the right, it seems likely that the parking mechanism has come adrift. Turn the printer on, and as soonas the print head tries to move, pull the power cord out of the printer. You should now be able to move the print head (gently) out of the way and see into the parking area. If there is a plastic rod sticking up, ull it gently towards you and it should snap down out of the way. The printer should now work. If the problem re-occurs, it means the mechanism is clogged up with dried ink. Try repeating the above process a few times to see if it clears it.

If you see that the whole parking mechaism has come adrift, this almost certainly means the front spring has come off. This will require the printer to be dismantled I'm afraid, so will cleaning the print mechanism. Service Manuals are available to help with this.

EPSOM STYLUS C62 COLOUR PRINTER PROBLEM! HELP! URGENT!


If both lights are flashing, it usually means the Waste Ink Pads in your printer are saturated with ink and the waste ink "protection" counter has exceeded its limit. You can restore your printer to a working condition immediately by using the SSC utility - download from

http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml

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.

If you decide to have a go at replacing the ink pads yourself, report back and I will provide further help.

Error light on stylus c62- printer makes loud buzzing


It sounds like the print head is jamming on the parking mechanism (usually because the actuation lever is stuck in the up position). Turn the printer on, and as soon as the print head moves, pull the power cord out of the back. You should now be able to move the print head over to the left by hand out of the way. Now look in the "parking bay" at the right end where the print head parks itself and see if there is a plastic arm sticking up. If there is, gently pull it towards you and it should spring down. Now turn the printer back on and it should operate normally. If it happens again, repeat the process a few times to see if it clears the problem. Otherwise it means the parking mechanism is gummed up with dried ink and needs a good clean (see below).

If you see that the whole parking mechanism itself has moved up to block the way, this means a spring has come off. To get this back on again requires the printer to be dismantled - as does the cleaning job above!

Epson Stylus C62 Error Red light wont go off


Hi victorarcas

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 (see later). You can overcome this problem temporarily by using the SSC utility - download from

http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml

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 C62 Service Manual". You will often find them for sale very cheaply on E-Bay.

If you decide to have a go at replacing the ink pads yourself, report back and I will provide further help.

If your printer documentation includes any troubleshooting information, perform those troubleshooting steps.
If possible, perform a self-test on the printer. These "self-diagnostic" tools can often resolve or diagnose basic issues with your hardware.
also:
-click start, point to setting and then click on printers
- right click on the printer that you want to check and then properties
- verify that all of your printer properties are configures as recommented by your printer manufacturer. to do so, view the documentation included with you printer
-if needed go to control panel and then to printers/cameras and try to set up your printer through there, you may need to update drivers.
