That is because the internal counter for the Waste Ink Pads has reached its maximum. The printer is fine. Ideally, you should fit a Waste Ink Bottle drain device (simple and cheap) - check www.youtube.com to find a video to show how - most printers are covered by enthusiasts. You can reset the counter - if you are based in the USA, you can get a free reset utility for your model from their www.epson.com website. However, that will ONLY work with USA printers - meaning those that have a USA Serial Code. It cannot be used for even exactly the same printer model anywhere else in the World and trying to use, perhaps, a USA friend's number for same printer will simply get rejected when trying to install. If outside of USA, www.google.com a search for Waste Ink Counter and you will find a suitable (for your location) provider of a Waste Ink Counter reset utility for a small sum.

SOURCE: Epson stylus c45 (Problem)

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

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

and 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 C45 Service Manual". You will often find them
for sale very cheaply on E-Bay.

You actually need to change the ink absorber.

Heres a video on how its done on the R800.

Please refer to your manual for proper localization of the ink absorber.

Doing this will get you to move on

Yes, like I said before...I have the same problem with most of my EPSON printers. Buy a Printer not from EPSON. They are inferior quality.

I have an epson stylus photo R200. It has stopped working and has alternate red flashing lights. Error message says serviceable parts are nearing end of life. How do I get it to carry on working?


I'm not sure about the servicable parts. You might want to contact Epson.

I have seen "parts are nearing the end of life" which applies to the ink pads that absorb excess ink. In that case, the printer needs to be replaced or serviced by Epson or an independent service provider. If you just get the ink pads serviced, it may still fail soon. Then you can run the resrt utility. For more information and the reset utility: http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/InkPadsForm.jsp?cookies=no&com.broadvision.session.new=Yes

I hope this helps.

The printer has an end of life service, meaning it has printed its last print on paper.. you have to get it reset from a technician or if you are savy enough you can download this resetter and do the reset yourself.

Installing epson dx8450


Hi french22, when ever you get an error message like the one you have. Run windows update. After windows update opens choose the Custom button. It's windows that provides USB drivers. If your using Vista my suggestions may not help but you have nothing to loose.
Windows scans your notebook. (Which is a good thing).
Un-install the printer software you have listed from control panel.
Hook your printer up completely but leave the power button on the printer to off. Than during a restart enter your notebooks bios. I think pressing either the F12 or F10 key will load the bios for a notebook. Find plug and play OS & change it from Yes to No.
This keeps windows from assigning IRQ's to your hardware devices. Windows makes too many mistakes from time to time.
I looked everywhere for your Epson Stylus dx8450, (US) & could not find it. Had to go to Epson Europe. arrrrrrrg! I picked Vista for the driver page below.
http://esupport.epson-europe.com/ProductHome.aspx?lng=en-GB&data=lkuCfcvA9cwvvTQvZBj4Do8njW9o0vUIeGCYznQY84EU003D

If I picked wrong than go to this link & fill in the 3 windows.
http://esupport.epson-europe.com/SupportHome.aspx?lng=en-GB&data=0ccCGROWIYM58zV3pqc84YT0DcLI1RrpNUFXBv299cYU003D
Lastly if you could not find Epson software in the control panel Add/Remove programs than use windows search & find Epson & delete it. Also remove Epson Stylus dx8450 from the regestry.
Click strart, run & type in the run window regedit click ok.
Click Edit, find & type in Epson Stylus dx8450 & delete it. Close all opened windows & restart the notebook.
Load either your cdrom or download the driver from the net & try again to install the software. Out of info. God I hate Vista. You may end up talking with tech support for your notebook.
The problem is not you.

Have a great weekend!
