This means the printer is in some intermediate state such as head cleaning etc so that the SSC must wait until it's finished. The easiest way around this is to turn off your printer, reboot your computer then turn your printer back on again. Then run the ssc, set the printer to your model then select Protection Counter. Reset the protection counter, turn the printer off then on again, and it should now be OK. If you need help with using the ssc program, please post a comment to this effect.
Please check the epson.com and select your model name and find if there is any win Vista drivers available.
All printers have their own printer driver windows has one and it's already inside your computer.
If there is no vista drivers for your printer. Goto start > control panel > printers on your computer and on the left side there is a buttons add printer and click on it. Follow the prompts and select the manufacturer of your product and find the name of your printer and it will be installed shortly.
epson.com, actually you can print using black ink only, but you have to reset the color ink for it to register as full. :) or you can freeze the ink counter using the ssc service utility before the other ink rans out. :)
The most help I can offer is a link to a utility program
designed to reset most (if not all) parameters of a variety of Epson
printer models. You need to determine if said utility program will work
with your particular model. This utility is SSC Service Utility for
Epson Stylus Printers and may be downloaded from here. Additional information may be viewed here.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Epson has an interactive troubleshooting guide on their support site.
From the link above, choose your model printer. You will then be brought to the main page of your printer. Then, click on the "interactive help program" link under the Troubleshooting Guide section.
Through this, you will be able to find an article describing what all the indicator lights mean and how to possibly resolve the issues.
