No... It means that your printer has reached the point where it believes your waste ink pads are "full".

All Epson printers can have their waste ink hoses redirected to an external tank and you should have no problems resetting the waste ink counter. The problem you will have though is that the C46 has no known instructions for locating and redirecting the waste hose (and I know of most models).

I found this link which may provide some help.
flickr.com/groups/techrepair/discuss/118485/

(You'll have to copy paste that to your address bar).

It's not easy but get some rubber gloves and take your time... it's not like you've anything to lose. Best of luck and remember there are forums and discussions on this sort of problem all over the web now.

The red and green light are flashing alternately and it won't print. What can I do?


Buried inside the Epson C46 is a usage counter. Mine was preset to 8300... when this was exceeded, I got the dreaded flashing lights. Go to http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/forums/printer/39038
for a full explanation (by Leonardo A. Palacios) of how to down load and use the printer reset program.
Good Luck

MY EPSON STYLUS C46 WONT ACCEPT THE BLACK INK WHICH IS NEW THIS IS THE SECOND ONE. THE RED LIGHT FLASHES AND THE GREEN LIGHT STAYS ON


Check status monitor? Black ink not recognized or what? If not recognized, red light just on. But flashes? It's may ink nearly out (low level ink) or printer need service. Check it. using SSC utilty to resolve. Reset protection counter and clear counter overflow.

Epson C46 colour printer green and red lights are flashing....but


Basically your printer says that you need to replace the waste ink pads. If this happens for the first time to this printer you can just reset the counter using SSC Service Utility (http://www.ssclg.com/epson.shtml) or if it happened more than once you shoul first replace the ink pads and then reset the counter or the printer may overflow. That's it.
