Re: epson c66

The Epson C60 series printers - and others I'm sure - have what are basically sponges in the bottom to soak up excess ink from their ink head cleaning process. After a certain number of cycles of cleaning the ink head, it reaches a counter level that decides your sponges are full and won't allow you to print anymore. You can open the printer case and clean out the sponges. Then you need to search online for freeware that will allow you to reset the counter in your printer. It's a hassle to do all of this, but if you don't want to spend money on a new printer it is time well spent.

No. Only thing is the drivers are different for different operating systems and need at times to be updated.
But the software does not limit the lives of the printers.
Now that being said. They are designed with a determined print life in pages.
That normally is not in the user guides but some smaller printers are designed for 100, to 150 thousand pages.
While others run into the millions of pages of useful life.
Also, if the printer is extremely old, there are software limitations due the old technology. Thats no inteltional, thats simply due to technology changes that occur.

Yes. They have built in page counters which automatically shut the printer down after so many pages. The idea is that you then have to take the printer to a epson service centre and pay £10 for a "basic service" i.e. to have the counter reset.

hi dude
your printer's ink waste pads are full and the counter needs resetting Try this site and software

It allows resetting of the counters, and gives much more control over cleans etc. (Also will allow cleaning when the red Ink light is flashing)

Epson stylus c66 is new but in printing paper comes out blank

Normal 0 Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Epson Stylus C66 inkjet printer

It sounds like you have a faulty installation of the printer driver. Uninstall the printer using the Control Panel - Uninstall Software. Turn off the computer. Make sure the printer is connected but switched OFF. Restart the computer and when Windows is up and running, insert the printer installation CD. When instructed, turn on the printer. Everything should now be OK.

Please post a new comment if you require further help with this.

Most drivers can be found for your hardware at the Company support site in this case:


If you need anything other than what they offer, they usually have a technical support contact. It does appear that drivers for Windows on this specific model number are readily available.


Good luck and happy printing!
