Question about Epson Stylus C48 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

After cleaning the heads a screen came up and said

I have a Epsom Stylus C48, cheap but more than adequate for what I print. After cleaning the heads a screen came up and said service required. Parts inside your printer are at the end of their life. See your printer documentation.
I went to ask a man in a computer shop and he said that the ink tank needs cleaning out and then printer counter reset and I would find how to do that on line, if I know where to look. So I am really hoping you will be able to help. I know I could just go and buy a new one but I recently bought loads of ink for it and as it prints every thing I want to print it seems a waste.

Epson stylus c48


Hi there maximum time we found it is a the head problem. The print head is what the cartridges sit in inside of the printer. For resolve the problem please follow these.


Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over. Some how if its not come then Unplug the printer & Manually slide the carriage.
Now Remove the ink cartridges from the print head & Use wet warm cotton swab or use alcohol to thoroughly clean the print head.
Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab. After finished it make the head dry then fix it back. Now Try to print something now

If that does not work then follow the next step.


Remove the printer data cable & restart the PC & printer. Then fit back the data cable & turn on the printer. Hope that's start working , if no luck then Uninstall the printer driver & restart the PC & Printer both again. Now install the driver of the printer and connect it with PC ,Turn on printer & go for a test print from the printer preference. Thanks & waiting for your reply.

Epsom R220 printing wrong colours


Print a nozzle check pattern then clean the heads until nozzle check pattern returns to normal. If you are using cheap **** compatible inks, throw them out and get some genuine stuff to run in the cleaning routine. Cheap **** compatible ink makes the situation worse when cleaning.

Epsom stylus all in one dx7450


press 'Control' + 'P' on a page (as tho you want to print)
click 'Maintenance'
there you'll find various options to clean heads etc, that should do it. tho it does deplete your inks considerably each attempt. & you'll probably find it needs more than one clean.Good luck!

Service required error


Possible that the waste ink collector is full. (When you clean the cartridges, some ink is used, and that ink has to go somewhere!)
Might be worth having a look at http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/forums/inkjet/31526
(at your own risk, of course :) )

Cartidge problem


Many "compatible" cartridges are badly manufactured or even labeld wrong. These can damage or block the connectors on Epson printers. your best bet is go buy new ink and try them, then if it still dont recognise, you could buy some ink cleaning cartiridges and give them a try - Google "Epson Print Head cleaning" Failing that go buy a new printer - Epson's are real cheap new.
