Can't see how to open C66 printer

I'm trying to replace the waste ink pads and the construction drawings don't give a lot of detail on how to open the printer up to permit access.It does look like it will have to be almost completely dismantled.

Can anyone enlighten me?

Regards

P

Yes, I'm afraid getting the covers off this family of printers is a nightmare - but possible. I have done a few but usually wished I hadn't bothered! Anyway - here's some notes on the job:
Normal 0 C6x and C8x Family Disassembly Notes Removing the end covers is the most difficult task. The service manual is very confused over this. Do not remove the thin “end plates” (dark plastic) - these are merely decoration. RHS and LHS are when looking at the front of the printer (opposite way round to the service manual). In the service manual, the red hooks hold the end covers, and the blue hooks the main centre cover..
End Cover RHS Release the hook at the top rear, and the two “prong hooks at the bottom, then prise the end cover off as far as possible. The end cover is now held on only by two hooks deep inside the cover (top front corner and top centre). It is impossible to reach these two hooks – brilliant design eh! These hooks are orientated downwards, and you need to lever up the flexible edge of the cover at the top, whilst trying to push it off. Do the corner one first, then the top one. The hooks are easily broken, so care is required.
End Cover LHS Release the hook at the top rear, and the one “prong hook at the bottom as before. There is a small square plate underneath with a >slot next to it. The purpose of this slot is not to release a hook inside, but to permit you to prise up the cover so that it can slide over this plate. There is also a similar slot near a foot – this appears to have no purpose. Then do the top hooks as before.

Waste ink tank/pads getting full.

Normally your remedy is to replace the "Waste Ink Pad/Pads" with a new one/ones and then reset the "Internal Waste Ink Pad Counter". The waste ink pads are normally housed in a black plastic box. They are located in the bottom of the printer, towards the front, just under where the paper starts to exit. You would have to remove the "Top Cover Assembly" to be able to get to the screw or screws that hold that assembly in place. If you cannot figure out how to remove the waste ink pad holder assembly [plastic box], you may need to actually get a SERVICE MANUAL, to refer to that removal procedure.

You may want to try doing a general search on the "Fixyourownprinter.com" printer repair site, under WASTE INK PADS or WASTE INK COUNTER RESET PROCEDURE.

The Waste Ink Pads are saturated and the waste ink 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 red 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.

The C64/66 service manual can be downloaded from here:
http://www.eserviceinfo.com/downloadsm/12748/Epson_C64%20and%20C84.html

Should you decide to have a go at changing the waste ink pads, let me know and I can supply some notes on opening the case - it's a pig and the service manual is not that helpful.

Hi

This problem is probably caused by a blockage in the ink waste pads. Over time, particularly with increased nozzle cleans the pads get saturated. These can be replaced by an Epson Engineer at a cost of about £30-£40 but probably more effective to buy a new printer. This usually happens when the printer is between 2-5 years old.

Hope this helps

If your having an error that says "Parts inside the printer are at the end of there Service life" it means that you ink pad is full/ what you can do is change your ink pad and then download an ink pad reset utility so that you can reset the settings/ Make sure to change ink pad before you reset it becuase ink will leak if you don't change it. For the flashing lights, try to check for obstructions inside the printer if not, make sure that ink clicked in and the cover for the tray is closed
