Most likely the ink pads need changing or you can take them out and give them a good wash and drip dry

Try to re-insert the cartridge. And see if there is any paper jam inside the printer. If your printer cartridge is bit old try to replace it.

SOURCE: epson c62 printer say's parts need replacing, service required

These symptoms usually mean 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

Install it, and double click the ssc printer icon in the bottom right corner (System Tray). Choose Configuration and set your printer type (C62), then close the ssc window. Now right click the ssc icon in the sytem tray and choose Protection Counter. Check the current count value - if it is greater than the limit shown it will confirm this is your problem. Then choose reset to set it to zero. You will need to fib about having changed the waste ink pads! Turn the printer off then back on again. 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. It is a pretty simple job once someone explains how to get the case apart!

If this solution helps you, please rate it; if it doesn't, please provide further information by posting a new comment.

Epson programmed their printer to monitor the waste ink counter and your printer has reached the maximum value allowed, you have to reset your printer to clear the waste ink counter.

You may read the information regarding "end of life" and "waste ink counter" here: http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/InkPadsForm.jsp

To reset the counter, download re-setter program here, install and follow the instruction in the web site.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

You will need to reset your printer and this printer requires a software resetter fo many of its error codes. The newest and best available resetter with full instructions is available here.
Just follow the easy instructions and download their service tool and this should reset any error codes or problems you are having with the printer.
Hope this solves your issue.

I'm sure you have tried unplugging the machine?
It's a scanner error. Is the scanner lock engaged? this would cause the problem.
Otherwise, it is more likely an electronic problem -either FCU or FCE -neither of which you are going to solve yourself.

Service error 5100. Cancel printing and Press OK button. If this doesn't clear the error, see the printer manual for more detail.


Had a same problem, here is what i ve received from canon support:
"Dear Customer,
Thank you for your recent enquiry regarding your Canon product.
Please be advised that error 5100 indicates a carriage error and the machine will require service."

However I managed to solve it by myself by perform few paper path tests as there was a paper jam inside.
