You can't use SSC service to reset this printer EPROM.
The best solution to reset this printer by using Epson Adjustment program for L120 which you can get it from the other sites(for free). The other program with the same capability you can find it here
Hope this will answer your question.

Uninstall SSC Service Utility, and reinstall the drivers for the printer. Reinstall SSC and clear the protection counter, as well as the Head Shots counters.

The printer's ink pads are at the end of their service life. Please contact Epson support

You need to perform a counter reset on the printer. It requires a software depending on your model. You can download the reset software here:

How to reset 73/91 Cartridges for Epson CX5500

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.

Epson r265 what does 2 red lights flashing slowley mean

It means that the ink counter needs resetting and the waste inkpad changing/cleaned. The Epson website will give you the address of a local service centre. Before paying out for that you could see if the SSC Service Utility would work for you although the R265 is not specifically listed as supported it is similar to the R270 which is. The free download is available here

Re: Epson C70 Problem by Denny Conway (12/18/03 9:05 AM) reply + / - Aspah:A Service Error where all LED's/Lights are blinking at the same time,is normally a Maintenance Request Error, which is actually a Waste InkPad Overflow Error...JUST SO YOU WILL KNOW: On most Epson's, while theprinter is in this error condition, it disables all operations,including data communication. Normally your remedy is to replace theWaste Ink Pad/Pads with a new one/ones and then reset the InternalWaste Ink Pad Counter. If you just reset the counter and don't replacethe pads, then your printers old pads will eventually overflow andnormally start leaking ink out the bottom of your printer. You may wantto try doing a general search on the "" printerrepair site, under WASTE INK PADS or WASTE INK COUNTER RESET PROCEDURE.You should be able to find quite a few references listed in the lastsix months and most included web-site links, for possible help on thereset procedure.

Myproblem is that the black cartridge is not being recognised and I aminformed by the printer that there is insufficient ink in the cartridgeand a need a new replacement. The black cartridge that I have used is agenuine epson cartridge.
I have been informed by epson help linethat either I need to install a new new cartridge or that my printerneeds to go to Epson for a maintenance check.
I cannot afford another new ink cartridge nor can I afford the return charges and maintenance bill from epson.

Can you help?

0.gif Re: Epson C70 Problem by Wes t.gif (12/21/03 4:47 PM) reply + / - Theonly two option I can think of is to return the ink cartridge asdefective or you can trick the printer into accepting the cartridge.

Youwill need to download the SSC Service Utility and click on the "ResetCounters" tab and then click the "Reset Black" tab to reset the blackink cartridge. The only problem is you will need to reset or freeze theink cartridge.

You can get the SSC Service Utility here

I hope this gets your printer going again.
