The D68 printer is almost exactly the same as the D88 unit which in turn is the same as the C84, C86, etc... so this guide will help you deal with the issue if you want to resolve it using an external waste tank rather than just getting it serviced at great expense.

Sorry to say that there's no utility for Mac computers and very unlikely to be one for quite some time. Best thing to do is swallow your pride and ask a friend with Windows XP/2000 to help you out for 5 minutes and get your printer reset that way.

The SSC utility will handle this problem in SOME of the C/D series printers but not always... If not you'll need to look for an Epson Service "adjustment utility" for your model printer and reset it using that.

Hope that helps.

Epson D68 does not print anymore. it says that some parts need a maintenance service. How can I reset the counter? I am using a mac mini.

If it says that parts need maintenance its will probably be your waste ink pads are full You are supposed to take the printer to your nearest Epson service station to have it diagnosed the waste pads changed and the printer reset The usual cost for this is about £50 -£60 Or you could try to do the job yourself You need a service manual for your make of printer a set of ink pads and the ssc reset utility or you could take the pads out wash and dry them and reuse them Look up the net for the reset utility for your printer

Both ink and paper light are flashing alternate and I cant get the printer to work epson d68

Your printer needs to be reset. Flashing lights means that your waste ink pad is full when that happens printer stops working to prevent flooding of waste ink inside your printer. Google search for a resetter program for epson d68. You need to replace the waste ink pad or create a tube line to divert the waste ink out of the printer. Good luck.

Epsom printer d68

The message means the waste ink pads are full and the internal counter in the printer needs to be reset.

you can take the machine to an Epson Express center who should be able to reset the counter in about 30 seconds. Changing the pads is a bigger job, but if this is the first time the machine has been reset you can probably skip the pad change and just go for the reset.

You could make a modification to the printer to use an external waste tank instead of the pads. Then whenever it reaches the limit again, you can just reset it.
