    Printer states that parts need sevicing, this is expensive and last time I purchased another printer from Epsom, I understand there is a programme that will reset the counters, does anyone know what this is and how to use it.

The C48 firmware counts the number f dribbles sent to a waste ink area somewhere in the printer. The printer dribbles every time it’s powered up and when the heads are cleaned. When the counter reaches 8300 the printer stops working.
A utility at http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml will reset the ink counter to zero. Cycle the printer power that’s it! easy peasy. Take care though.. the ink thingy might overflow onto the carpet one day…..
NB. I don’t think that this utility runs under Vista.

My epson c48 printer the green and red light are flashing alternatively what can i do


It seems that the waste pad inside the printer needs to be replaced. And only a qualified service tech from epson can do it. Alternatively you can reset the counter for waste pad protection, meaning it will still work but the waste pad would still be needed to be replaced since it might be the end of it's capacity.

Reset your counter back to zero. But for some you must also check the waste bin status. Need disassembling this is to ensure ink will not overflow from your printer.

Reseting is only software base. Try this link

Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
