Green light flashing Red light on

with regards to the status of the lights., its either the cartridges that you installed is not recognized by the printer's print head or cartridges are defective.
try these steps:
if all the inks are new take them out and get an eraser and rub the small chip gently so as to clean the contacts of the chip ( don't touch it with your finger ) reinsert the cartridges in the printer and allow it to charge.

Epson c60 printer not compatable with windows vista need a driver but have no idea where to download it

The driver for the Epson C60 printer is included with Vista - all you need to do is connect the printer to the computer with Vista running and turn it on. If you have already done this and the printer does not work properly (but see the info about the Status Monitor below), turn the printer off, uninstall the printer using the Control Panel-Programs and Features-Epson Printer Software, then reboot the computer. Once Vista is running, turn the printer on and it should then install OK.

HOWEVER, the printer Status Monitor (SM) is not included in this process and if you try to install the XP version of the SM, it will not work. Epson appears to have no intention of remedying this problem. This means you have no means of monitoring your ink levels, nor of changing the cartridges, cleaning the heads etc via the computer, although some of these tasks can be carried out via the printer control panel (see your hand book on how to do this).

A good solution is to use the free SSC utility as your SM - download from:

Install it, and double click the ssc printer icon in the bottom right corner (System Tray). Choose Configuration and set your printer type (C60), then close the ssc window. Now right click the ssc icon in the sytem tray and choose the SM function you wish to use.

If you have any further queries on this, please post a new comment.

How do I clean and maintain my Epson Stylus C60printer?


In order to find out if it will work you have to get new cartridges so the printer can print. The printer can sense if the ink is to low and can cause it not to work correctly.

Hope this helps

Epson c60 not compatable with windows vista

I have an Epson C60 and Vista has the neccessary drivers in box. When Vista is running just connect your C60 and it will do the rest.
I have so far had no problems. The only thing that I can see is missing is the option to preview via the printer software.

Epson C60 Stylus Status Monitor Does Not Work On Windows Vista

-As the driver is part of Windows Vista, there is no Status Monitor available for your printer. Some printers may have an INK LEVELS options included as part of the resident driver. Otherwise, the printer does have its own indicators. The RED error light will flash when the printer is low on ink and go solid when it is out.

-If the ink levels do not appear, click GET INK LEVELS from the MAIN tab of the printer driver. Ensure the printer is directly connected to the computer as the Ink Levels does rely on full bidirectional communication.
