    I downloaded the SSC Service Utility but something isn't right. I go to "Resetter" and I click all buttons there is (Write, Check and Test), but then program prompt for error - 'Device not found'! I also tryed Ink 'Frezzer', 'Head Cleaner' and 'Reset counters', and nothing worked. Previously I'd instaled drivers and my PC also "see" printer. I hope.
    I think color cartidge was replaced first time, the problem is, that isn't my printer, it's my friends.
    Tomorrow i will record video of printer and how is behaving for better understanding.

    Tnx for now! I'm very grateful!

    I would love that you fix printer, but I am sorry, because my friend already take his printer back, because he was tired of waiting - i don't know, he thinks that stuff like that can be repaird in a minute, and I don't know what he will do now. I will try get printer back, than we will try to repair it by remote administration.

    I Thank you for your help for now! I will be in touch!

    Have a nice day!

Basically your printer says that you need to replace the waste ink pads. If this happens for the first time to this printer you can just reset the counter using SSC Service Utility ( or if it happened more than once you shoul first replace the ink pads and then reset the counter or the printer may overflow. That's it.

    The video confirmed 100% that problem is with the ink pads.However using this SSC utility when the printer is in this condition is a little bit harder than usual and the explanation how you to do it will be about 100 rows of text wich i have to write here so i've come up with the idea how we can work this out quickly - if you are agree i can use remote administration program (Team Viewer) and fix the printer myself. This will same time to both of us and your friend.We just have to negotiate when exactly durring the day or the night going to do it -it will take probably 10 minutes tops.

2 red lights are blinking!!!!!

is both the light blink the same time or blink alternate ? if blink the same time, it's probably a fatal error..
if blink alternately then the waste ink counter need to be reset and the waste ink pad need to be replaced.

The green and red lights are on.They arent blinking just on.And when i go to print a job nothing happends.

The green light is the power light, the red light indicates out of paper or an empty ink cartridge.

My Epson is printing pages in code and will not stop and the green light is blinking and the red is staying on. We put in new ink cartridges today.

zark4, The green light flashing means you have print jobs waiting to be printed. Don't Turn Off The Printer When The Green Light Is Flashing ! If you have paper in the printer, the red light means you have an empty ink cartridge. Because both things are happening at the same time, here's what you need to do. First click start. Click printers and faxes. Double left click the Epson C-60 Icon. Left click Printer and click Cancel all documents and click yes, then exit. Remove and reinsert your new ink cartridges to make sure they are seated correctly. After you have done this and the printer finishes the automatic charging of the ink cartridges, the lights should be back to normal. Green light on.

Computer sends to printer but printer does not pick up the print

Please see your manual for the meanings of the green and red printer lights, and how to load paper and change ink cartridges. If you do not have a copy, you may download it from here:

There is also a self-help troubleshooting guide there which is very useful.

The blinking red light means you have a cartridge which needs replacing. Right click the little printer icon in the bottom left corner of the screen and select printer settings, then maintenance then replace cartridge.

Printer showing error

If both lights are flashing, it means the Waste Ink Pads in your printer are saturated with ink and the waste ink "protection" 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

and use it to reset the Protection Counter. 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. This is quite straightforward once you know what to do.

If you decide to have a go at replacing the ink pads yourself, post a new comment, and I will provide further help.

Printer not printing

I hate Epson. Had problems with Stylus C82 and now my replacement Stylus C86 has given me nothing but trouble.
I've just replaced all four ink cartridges and now when I print I'm only getting blank pages. I uninstalled, reinstalled, and nothing is working. I even called Epson, twice, only to be routed to the Phillipines where neither person was very helpful, in fact, had a hard time understanding their English. So this is what I;m going to do. I'm taking this bloody Stylus C86 outside and smash it with a hammer..then I'm going to buy a HR Printer...and if anybody from Epson reads this...good luck...your products SUCK!!
