EPSON STYLUS C42UX PRINTER.

My epson c42ux says parts inside my printer are at the end of their life. I have cleaned the ink pads in the back of my c42 printer that was the easy part, but i just cannot get the counter to go back to zero. my red and green lights on printer is flashing all the time. I have down loaded SSCLG.COM. thinking this mite help. I have been told that i need a code from epson but they will not give it out. I wonder why. Can anyone help as my c42 printer was still printing very good uptill today.

    I have exactly the same symptoms. Have read advice offered on various forums; washed out waste ink pads, downloaded SSC service utility to reset protection counter etc., Even downloaded Epson C42 driver, just in case it had been corrupted; Attempts to carry out routine maintenance checks like nozzle and head cleaning still do not achieve any response.

    I HAD SAME PROBLEM, CLEANING THE INK PADS OUT

    THAT WAS EASY, I DID DOWN LOAD SSC SERVICE UTILTY BUT YOU AFTER KEEP AT IT TO RESTORE THE CURRENT VALUE. ONCE YOU HAVE DOWN LOADED SSC SERVICE UTILTY. CLICK ON THE ICON IN YOUR TASK BAR. THEN CLICK ON PROTECTION COUNTER, THEN CLICK ON RESET PROTECTION COUNTER. THEN CLICK ON SHOW CURRENT VALUE AND SHOULD READ ZERO. IF IT DOES NOT JUST KEEP TRYING AND IT WILL DO IT. ALSO YOU MUST INPUT THE CORRECT PRINTER ON SSC.

The red and green lights were flashing./ I forced the train to accept the new cartridge but no solution./ commands not respond. The killer generic cartridge was blue label ,white triangle up , says Ink Cartridge compable for T036 / my printer C42 is very sick.

Epson stylus c42ux how do I put in new ink? I can't get to the print cartridges


Power up the printer and open the lid. The print head should come to the center. When you close the lid, it will go back to it's park position. Don't pull it over with the power off.

Paper will not feed through printer


Your waste ink pads are full. These are low end printers and it will cost more to replace the pads than the printers are worth.
Go out and buy yourself another new $60 printer, it will be cheaper than fixing these.

You say you have downloaded the SSL utility. Install it and right click the ssc icon in the system tray (bottom right corner of the screen). Select reset protection counter. This will restore your printer to a working condition.
