Hi,

i had the same prob.

download from above, install then select your printer from th list.
close th prog then goto your icon near your clock. you will see what looks like a printer right click then scroll to protection counter. click on reset protection, it will ask if you have rplacd the wast ink pad, click yes, it should then say that all protection has been rest. the rd lights should thn go out and you can now print again.
in time you will receiv messages from your util that "parts are nar the nd of there life" just repeat the above and you will once again be able to print

No, not now, try to reset the printer's broken printer - moz-screenshot.jpg internal counter... download the utility software and install it. Then find your printer there and reset everything. Instructions are there too...

Ink red light on . which colour is out?


When red ink light flashes - one or more ink cartridges is low. When you print, a message on your screen will tell you which one(s).

When red ink light remains on - one or more ink cartridges is empty. When you try to print, a message on your screen will tell you which one(s).

Furthermore: When following the procedure for installing a new cartridge, if the red ink light was on or flashing, pressing the ink button will cause the carriage to stop with the cartridge that needs replacing under the "ink out mark" (ink droplet with a slash through it).

Both red lights are flashing on epson stylus c66. I saw some responses that said to reset ink counters. Not sure how to reset ink counters...


well it shall depend on your operating system. there is an available download on the epson website and it is called the ink pad reset utility. if this process tends to detect and install your printer it will work again

the website is www.epson.com/ipr

Hi, epson c66 has 2 red lights on. no paper stuck and cant move the cartridges to change. any idea


hi dude
your printer's ink waste pads are full and the counter needs resetting Try this site and software

It allows resetting of the counters, and gives much more control over cleans etc. (Also will allow cleaning when the red Ink light is flashing)

Epson C66 red light stays on for ink


The first time you install ink cartridges, the printer must charge its print head for about 90 seconds. Wait until charging finishes (the green power.jpg power light stops flashing) before you turn off the printer, or

it may charge improperly and use excess ink the next time you turn it on. If the printer stops moving or making noise, but the green power.jpg power light is still flashing after 5 minutes, turn off the printer. If the light is still flashing when you turn it back on, contact Epson.
Turn off the printer, then make sure the ink cartridges are inserted completely and the ink cartridge cover is closed completely. Also make sure no packing material remains in the printer. Wait a moment, then turn the printer back on to clear the error.

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.

Change printer ink


Turn on the printer.
lower th epirnter's output tray, pull out the extension, and open the cover.
press and release the ink button.
if your ink lights is on or flashing, the printer head moves to the left, and the cartridge that need to be replaced stops under the ink out mark.
open the cartridge cover
Pinch the back tab of the empty cartridge as your left it out of the printer.
shake the ink cartridge 4 to 5 times while it is still in the package.
unwarp the new ink cartridge and lower it into the holder. Push down gently until the cartridge is firmly seated.
repeal the procedure if more than one ink cartridge is out.
close the cartridge cover.
close the printer cover and press the ink button.
The green power light flashes and the printer makes noise. charge takes about a minutes. When it's finished, the green power light stops flashing and stay on, and the red ink light should go out.

Red lights flash alternately


Your machine has hit the Ink Overflow Protection Counter Limit. Sounds dreadful but fairly easy to fix.

Get this C66 Rescue Kit and follow the instructions. your printer should spring back to life in no time.
