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 (http://www.ssclg.com/epson.shtml) 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.

Red and green lights are flashing alternatively and colour ink cartridge has run out. How do i change the cartridge?


Flashing alternately mean waste pad full. Reset using SSC utility or Adjusment program/resetter. But, you must replace cartridge before. Turn off printer, unlock carriage lock (left side of carriage at parking position). Move carriage by hand to replacement position. Replace ink tank. Reset using the resetter.

The red and green light are flashing alternately and it won't print. What can I do?


Buried inside the Epson C46 is a usage counter. Mine was preset to 8300... when this was exceeded, I got the dreaded flashing lights. Go to http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/forums/printer/39038
for a full explanation (by Leonardo A. Palacios) of how to down load and use the printer reset program.
Good Luck

MY EPSON STYLUS C46 WONT ACCEPT THE BLACK INK WHICH IS NEW THIS IS THE SECOND ONE. THE RED LIGHT FLASHES AND THE GREEN LIGHT STAYS ON


Check status monitor? Black ink not recognized or what? If not recognized, red light just on. But flashes? It's may ink nearly out (low level ink) or printer need service. Check it. using SSC utilty to resolve. Reset protection counter and clear counter overflow.

Epson C46, changed coloured ink, won't print flashing red light


If the red light is flashing by itself, it means the printer thinks a cartridge is low on ink. Have a look at what the Status Monitor thinks (right click the printer Icon in the bottom Right-Hand corner and select Ink Monitor). This will show which cartridge it is. If it's the new colour cartridge, it means the cartridge is faulty (then replace it), or it is a refilled cartridge that hasn't had it's chip reset to "full". For this you will need a chip resetter, available on E-Bay very cheaply. If it's the black cartridge then replace it.

If both green and red lights are flashing, it usually means the Waste Ink Pads in your printer are saturated with ink and the waste ink "protection" counter has exceeded its limit. You can restore your printer to a working condition immediately by using the SSC utility - download from:

http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml

Install it, and double click the ssc printer icon in the bottom right corner (System Tray). Choose Configuration and set your printer type (C4x), then close the ssc window. Now right click the ssc icon in the sytem tray and choose Protection Counter. You should see that the current count is above the limit; then choose reset to set it to zero. You will need to fib about having changed the waste ink pads! Turn the printer off then back on again. 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.

If you decide to have a go at replacing the ink pads yourself, report back and I will provide further help. It is a pretty simple job once someone explains how to get the case apart!
