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

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 C43 Service Manual". You will often find them for sale very cheaply on E-Bay. Note, however, if you can find or borrow any of the C40, 41, 42, 43,or 44 service manuals, as far as ink pad replacement goes, they are the same.

Please don't hesitate to report back if you have any other queries.

Colour ink cartridge empty but the on off light and red ink light flashes alternately and the carriage will not move to allow access to remove the empty cartridge.


hello, are you sure its not the error light that is blinking alternately with the power light, or is ink light indicator blinking , and just the power light blinking. i would first problably pull the power cord. then plug back in, and try again. the alternating error light and power light would be inkjet service, maint or waste pads are full, as far as the other error, i looked it up, and that error not coming up, unless there is something else going on. maybe cover for ink cartridge is caught, and not allowing printer to cycle.

My both red light is blinking continuously what i do help me


both light are blinking at the same time or blinking alternatively ?
if both blinking same time, it's a fatal error.. means it could be something wrong with the carriage or board or encoder belt...
if the light blink alternatively, it means the waste ink counter need to be reset and ink pad need to be replaced.

C43 stylus does'nt print while red and green lights stay on


If the light are flashing, it mean waste ink full. You must clean waste ink pad, and reset the counter. You can use SSC, find at indoreset.blogspot.com. But,.. you said the light are on. try to resinstall driver. after printer recognised by comp, check status monitor. Green light on is power on, and red on mean chip error/ink out error/cartridge error.

Green & red light is blinking


If you try to print and it say "end of service life ........thing" . You have to reset the printer counter to 0 count.

Use a third party software for this, key in in your web search bar " epson reset software" the upper most link is the one, try to read the procedure.

Hope you get it easily.

Red light is always on


The error light on the C43sx is quite "non-descriptive". It simply means there is an error - that error depends upon the flashing/timing of the light.

I suggest you get hold of the Epson service software to get a better idea of the problem. It is quite possible the machine has simply hit the ink overflow protection counter limit, which is easy to fix with the above software. It is also possible the machine has a fatal error in which case the trash bin beckons.

Visit this person for a source of the software and more help.

Epson c43sx does not print


It is possible that the ink cartridges in your printer (especially applicable if you are using refilled or compatible carts) can not be read by the printer. Some compatible cartridges have a failure rate as high as 30% and so it is very possible that the machine either does not see the cartridges or can not read them.

Replace the cartridges with genuine Epson ones and try again. The genuine ink will also help to clear any hardening cheap ink in the print head.

C43sx both lights on


If your PC is connecting to it normally (no connection errors), it sounds like you printer is having the service reset hardware problem. Try installing the EPSON reset software and check all counters and error codes.

Try this one which fixed mine:
