The reset counter software program that I assume you download, needs to change the date on your PC to works, the first time sound a little confuse, but if you follow the instructions it works. If still failing, try to download another copy of the reset software, may be corrupt the early software.

Stopping browsing history


Step 1:
Stop Web History on Internet Explorer b> Every time you visit a website, the web address, date and time of your visit is recorded in your Web browser history. The length of time this information is saved varies depending on what browser is used. If privacy is a concern, popular browsers such as Firefox and Internet Explorer offer enhanced privacy features that allow you to prevent your browser history from being stored.

Update your Web browser to the latest version of the product. Browser updates often include important security patches. Automatically clear your browser history each time you exit. In Firefox, this option is located under "Tools" and "Options." Select the "Privacy" tab and check the box marked "Always clear my private data when I close Firefox." If you're using Internet Explorer, click on "Tools" and "Internet Options" and check "Delete browsing history on exit." Use private browsing if your browser supports it. Private browsing prevents your browser from storing any information about your browsing history, including cookies, temporary Internet files and history. Pressing CTRL+Shift+P on your keyboard will activate private browsing mode in both Firefox and Internet Explorer. It can also be accessed in Firefox by clicking "Tools" and selecting "Start Private Browsing," and in Internet Explorer by clicking "Safety" and selecting "InPrivate Browsing."

Both red lights are flashing and message says it needs a service. How do I reset?


If both red lights are flashing alternately your printer is locked. You need to replace the waste ink pads and then reset the printer using a ssc service utility for your printer model you can get one free on the internet unless your printer is a fairly new one

Lexmark c530dn red light on


Operator panel display blank, five beeps, and LED off
Service tip: The printer has detected a problem with the system card, the operator panel assembly cable (part of
the top cover access assembly), or the operator panel assembly if POST does not complete. The printer emits
five beeps, and sticks in a continuous pattern until the printer is turned off.
Is this what you are getting?

Printer Parts Worn Out


This is usually a sign that the Waste Ink Pads in your printer are saturated with ink and the waste ink counter has exceeded its limit. However, your two printer lights should also be flashing alternately.

If this is the case, 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. If you want to have a go at doing this yourself, the 820 service manual can be downloaded from here:

810/820 http://www.mediafire.com/?m6ouftizois

If the printer lights are not flashing, you really need a technician to have a look at it for you.
