Resetting ink counters on epson c42ux

I have an Epson C42UX and have just cleaned the ink filters and now want to reset the counters. I have previously used SSC Service Utility to do this but when I downloaded this the reset protection counter on the main menu is greyed out.

I've uninstalled and reinstalled SSC but it is still greyed out.

Is there another program I can use to do this?

    Thanks for your tip about Dr Tool. Unfortunately the link you suggested no longer works however I did manage to download Dr Tool at http://downloads.guru3d.com/DRTool-EPSON...



    However it looks as though I've got an additional problem as when I try Dr Tool I get an error message "communication error"



    I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the printer but this does not solve it.



    Not sure where to go next, probably buy a new printer.



    Thanks again for your help.

Hi (unlucky) C42 owners,
After a day of searching, downloading and cursing, I am very happy to tell you, folks, that my Epson C42 started printing again. Thanks to Ian willis:( http://ianwillis.co.uk/c42/ ) and
Dr Tool: ( http://downloads.guru3d.com/DRTool-EPSON-Printer-Counter-Reset-download-644.html#download ). Also the SSC service utility was very helpfull, though, not enough to make a counter reset( in my case ).
Yes, I know, there's nothing new than already recomended stuff. But folks, have patience!
That's the (new) advice I would like to add. Sometimes you heve to sleep on it. Well, it has worked out for me, why not for other people.

Tom

You can try the other software you can use to reset the counter.

Also make sure that on the ssc software, you have selected the correct printer model.

Usually when you receive this error its either the waste ink pads,has already to much ink on it where the inks go to when you clean the printhead.
Try going in this site http://inkjetprinterhelp.us/epsonSSC.html and download the SSC service utility. then reset all the counters. After that the printer will be working fine, but there is a possibility that the excess ink will leak out on your printer. Hope this would help

Both the red and green light are on and blinking.What is wrong with my Epson C60?


kiryakitsa1 You should download the SSC Service Utility as pineworks says. Read the instructions and warnings. Go to Reset counter protection and press reset. You may recieve a warning about replacing your waste ink pads. I have always reset the protection counter without replacing the waste ink pads and I have never had a problem. If you see ink drainage then you should replace the waste ink pads and then reset the protection counter. I have never had a problem with ink heads and I have done this many times.

How to reset 73/91 Cartridges for Epson CX5500


SSC utility is used for resetting waste ink counter, not for ink level counter (chip at ink tank). If you wish to reset ink level counter (chip), you must use hardware resetter, or use CISS chip with autoreset function.

Flashing green and red light of Epson stylus c45 series


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.

EPSON STYLUS C42UX PRINTER.


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.

Epson stylus 1400 service utility SSC


The free SSC utility which will reset the waste ink pad protection counter in most Epson inkjet printers can be downloaded from
http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml. Remember though, if you don't change the ink pads, there will be an increasing danger of ink leakage from your printer, particularly if you tip it up for any reason - VERY messy, and it can clog up your printer mechanisms.
