Question about Epson Stylus C86 InkJet Printer
Need to change ink pad and want to do it myself. Where to buy and how to fix. Thanks, Beverly
You will need the C86 Service Manual to help you remove the printer top cover and Automatic Sheet Feeder (ASF). The C63/64/65/66/83/84/85/86 service manual can be downloaded from here:
You don't need to buy replacement waste pads - just wash out the old ones and dry them (use a bucket and latex gloves if you want to avoid destroying your sink and nicely manicured hands). Note their order and orientation as you remove them otherwise refitting can be a bit confusing.
You will also need to reset the waste ink protection counter by using the SSC utility - 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, 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. Turn the printer off then back on again. This will stop the lights flashing and restore normal operation.
Please post a new comment if youe require further assistance.
