I presume both the red and green lights are blinking.

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 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. A copy of the service manual is useful for this, copies are available from a number of sellers - just Google "Epson C46 Service Manual". You will often find them for sale very cheaply on E-Bay. However, a service manual is not essential.

If you decide to have a go at replacing the ink pads yourself, or if you have further queries, post a new comment and I will provide further help.

If this solution is useful to you, please rate it.

The "lamp" light keeps blinking red. Does this


The lamp life becomes 0%, when used
for approximately 4,000 hours with "Eco
Mode" or when used for approximately
2,000 hours with "Standard Mode" (see
page 43).
When the remaining lamp life becomes
5% or less, " " (yellow) will be displayed
on the screen. When the percentage becomes
0%, " " will change to " " (red),
the lamp will automatically turn off and
then the projector will automatically enter
the standby mode. At this time, the
lamp indicator will illuminate in red.
If you try to turn on the projector a fourth
time without replacing the lamp, the projector
will not turn on.
If you require the manual to help with changing the bulb, send me an email to LBrown18062@hotmail.com Put SHARP PG-B10S in the subject line. I will send it to you right away. Lawrence Brown

Lamp light turns on


How is the picture is it dimmer than usual? Also how many times does the lamp light blink in between each pause? A faulty lamp/live driver on this one would cause it to blink 5 times.. Try counting it and let me know.

The green light blink for a while and then shuts off and the lamp light blinks once red???


The green blinking lamp means that the TV is getting ready to start the lamp, and then one red LAMP blink means the lamp will not start. You may need a new lamp (Part TYLA1001.)

If a tech confirms this, and you can source the part, you can find TYLA1001 installation instructions here to save a few dollars, and PT-52LCX66 lamp timer reset steps here.

I hope that helps.
