Question about Epson Stylus C60 InkJet Printer
Both service lights are alternately flashing. I need to know the reset button combination to get the printer working again!!!!!!!! We have found combinations for other Epson printers (i.e. stylus 845, 670...I think) but they don't seem to be working. Hopefully you guys know something i don't!
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 restore your printer to a working condition immediately by using the SSC utility - download from
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.
