Full ink pads on Epsom styllus C43SX Printer

Hi the advice I received on Premium gave me the stages to remove the ink pads and clean them. This is done and they are back in.
I started the SSC Service Utility (No.9) on the list but the Reset Protection Counter option comes up with a red X next to it so I can't get any further. I still have both lights flashing. I can't then move to No.10 on the list.

Help!

Google or call tech support for instructions. Go to the website below and get a Waste Ink Container kit and a CISS while you're at it. Get a CISS for your printer. It will save you TONS of MONEY, never change a cartridge again and it will pay for itself in a month.

Lookin to bypass service required for epsom r265


Hi, I have come across this problem with Epson printers in the past. What it is wanting you to do is send it in for a 'service'. Actually it's just the waste ink pad inside the printer that needs to be cleaned or changed and often this pad is not full with ink at all and therefore the service indicator and waste ink counter can be safely reset. A niffty piece of free software is avaiable to do just this. Go to this site: http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml and download the latest version. Operating instructions are on the site and it's very easy to use. This will save you quite a bit of money for now but I would remommend that the next time a service warning comes up that you should then have the printer serviced as eventually the waste ink pad will become full and need cleaning or replacing.

C43 stylus does'nt print while red and green lights stay on


If the light are flashing, it mean waste ink full. You must clean waste ink pad, and reset the counter. You can use SSC, find at indoreset.blogspot.com. But,.. you said the light are on. try to resinstall driver. after printer recognised by comp, check status monitor. Green light on is power on, and red on mean chip error/ink out error/cartridge error.

Epson C43SX communication error


It is presumed the 6 posts in this problem are all from the same person. If one (or more) isn't, and my response below doesn't help, would you you start a new separate post on your particular problem.

A solitary blinking red light means that the ink level in one of your cartridges is low, but printing can continue normally until the ink runs out, at which point the red light becomes permanently on. You must now change the ink cartridge before the print will work again.

If the green light is flashing at the same time as the red one, this 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 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. A copy of the service manual is available from a number of sellers - just Google "Epson C43 Service Manual". You will often find them for sale very cheaply on E-Bay. Note, however, if you can find or borrow any of the C40,42,44,60,62 service manuals, as far as ink pad replacement goes, they are the same.

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

The reference manual is at

http://support2.epson.net/manuals/english/ij/stylusc43/REF_G/INDEX.HTM

which provides good information on the meanings of the error lights.

Please report back with further information if the above advice doesn't help.

Red light is always on


The error light on the C43sx is quite "non-descriptive". It simply means there is an error - that error depends upon the flashing/timing of the light.

I suggest you get hold of the Epson service software to get a better idea of the problem. It is quite possible the machine has simply hit the ink overflow protection counter limit, which is easy to fix with the above software. It is also possible the machine has a fatal error in which case the trash bin beckons.

Visit this person for a source of the software and more help.

You need to reset the waste tank or the counter to resolve the problem.

If your C42 blinks both lights and displays a message to the effect that parts inside your printer have reached the end of their servicable life, then you probably need to clean the waste ink pads. These pads collect waste ink whenever the printer cleans it's heads. The printer counts how much ink it thinks is in the waste ink pads and refuses to print when they are full.

To verify whether this is the case, download the "SSC Service Utility" from http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml.

Printer lights stay on


Hi geoger, Can you give more detail about the lights and if they flash and in what sequence. The most likely cause is that your machine has hit the maintenance error meaning that the waste ink pads are full. This requires that the pads be cleaned/replaced and the counter within the firmware be reset. To do this, you will need the service manual for the 1290 to dismantle it and gain accesss to the pads and the software to reset the firmware counter. You should be able to get these from: http://www.TheServiceManualShop.com and/or http://mikeburton.tradebit.com/
