It sounds like the waste ink counter needs resetting. Unfortunately the SSC Service utility does not yet support the CX5500 specifically but as there is support for some of the 5000 series it may work. As with any other 3rd party software it is "at your own risk" I've used it many times in the past with no problems. Failing that you will need to take or send it to a service centre for them to reset it.

You can download SSC from here http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml Don't forget to read the help file before you use the utility (you have to install it first).

Hope this helps.

If this was not your problem, has the CISS system ever worked? When you first install it you need to still have some ink in the Epson Genuine cartridges before you install the CISS cartridges.

Does not print, just a faint black print, the cartriges are half full.


your printer is a photo printer which consumes considerable amount of inks when printing... you may need to perform a head cleaning process to clear the clogg on your nozzle. this may consume your ink cartridges... i suggest that you convert your printer into a CISS (continous ink supply system) this is more cost effective instead of buying ink per ink as this shows the same output as the regular ones.

check out ebay for people who convert epson system to CISS
note: doing the head cleaning process always takes ink to force the clogg out of the nozzle tube

hope this helps

SSC utility is used for resetting waste ink counter, not for ink level counter (chip at ink tank). If you wish to reset ink level counter (chip), you must use hardware resetter, or use CISS chip with autoreset function.

Im using ciss for my epson cx3700 and the magenta wont print anymore


Make sure there is not an airlock in the magenta ink line. This is best achieved by fitting a syringe to the flow line and sucking through some ink. Also you may be able to use a syringe and needle to inject some in into the cartridge to prime it. You may need to run several cleaning cycles to get the ink through - I had a similar issue with and Epson R300 using CISS and carried out over 10 cleaning cycles to get the yellow ink to flow again. It may also be worth removing the cartridge and leaning the exit area with a cotton bud soaked in isopropyl alcohol as residue can build up in this area. If the problem persists you can fill the cartridge with cartridge cleaning fluid to flush it through and then empty it and reconnect the CISS ink supply. If you disconnect the CISS Supply a good tip is to use a bulldog clip to prevent the ink from siphoning out of the supply line while you are attending to the cartridge.

Hi my epson r285 with ciss is leaving ink blotches all over my print outs, predominantly black, but less frequent with the other colours. This is only a new printer. Head cleaning, noxzzle cleaning and...


It might be caused by waste ink at bottom plate around head sprayer. For some CISS (bottle) design, ink will flow to head, and then flow to pad, when printer off. So, you must close respiratory hole at bottle when printer is not used. For cleaning, turn off printer (unplug power) when head is not in parking position. Move head to center. Put wet tissue (with cleaner or hot water) at top of pad (at head cleaning mechanics). Move head to parking position. So bottom plate contact with tissue. Wait for 10 minutes, repeat 3 times. Check nozzle.
