SSC Service Utility v4.30/ Epson CX3200/ "See documentation" error

This is a re-post of a continuing problem, sorry to "go on"! I'm using Vista on one computer and Ubuntu/Linux with Wine on another.
Have tried using SSC Service Utility to try solving this but although the utility downloads OK I can?t get it to work. On Ink Monitor/Printer Report/Refresh I get Error "This function isn't supported in current printer state". On Configuration with Installed Printer as CX3200 and Printer Model as CX3100/3200 The box for disabling Epson Status Agent (which I read should be disabled before running SSC) is greyed-out. On the Resetter tab whatever I try I either get "Priviledged Instruction" or a continuous "Please Wait" screen, which it's not possible to cancel.
Thanks to Tom Tinker for the SSC link and to Inky for the link to his Rescue Kit (which I haven't downloaded, YET, as I'm not sure it addresses the error which is displaying on my CX3200 namely "Printer Error...........See your documentation and call service if necessary".
I really would like to be able to use this printer again, not least because I have a stock of ink cartridges for it! Can anyone help me please?

    Hi I had the same problem on my CX3200 5 yrs old. Great prnter, cheapest cartridges at £3 from 365.ink, so having tried and failed with the SSC utility I went to local repair shop and £20 lighter I have a 'new' printer. They said the pads had very little ink in them but the counter is the thing that disables it. For next time I would like to know where I went wrong or how to do it successfully. Thanks Clive UK

Please go to my website http://www.the-inkstore.co.uk where I have the latest version of SSC Service Utility to download directly onto your computer and instructions on how to use it, what to click on etc etc. Everything you need to know will be there. For Epson RX500 users there is also a manual reset on my site, as the SSC Serve software won't do it for you.
When using the program & choosing your printer from the list, it may have a weird name with 'x' in the model number, this is because some configurations are for many models in a series. For example, the C46 will be listed as C4x as it is for the C42, C44 & C46 models.

I hope this helps all Epson users to overcome the Epson scam of page counting and locking out until you pay their dealers money for maintenance.

If you like what I've done for Epson users, please show your appreciation by spreading the word and perhaps buying your ink from my site.

Happy trouble free printing

I have an Epson SX400. When using non-Epson


Short answer is no... The SSC utility stopped development about 3+ years ago and hasn't been compatible with newer printers produced since.

The SX400 does have a suitable reset utility if you do some searching for "adjprog tx400 download" BUT word of warning, look for a reputable source and don't just run stuff without checking thoroughly for virus/malware payloads.

Hope that helps.

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 CS3200 - Non-specific power-up failure & error message


From reading posts in the ssclg website mentioned above it seems Epson set counters that ensure your printer stops working after a certain number of copies so they can "service" it (or get you to replace it). When you download the utility mentioned above, read the help file. (Right click the icon in the tray to get it up.) It will tell you which buttons to press when, so that the counters are reset, and hey presto - your printer will be working just fine again.Search for your printer model number on the ssclg website to read others' similar experiences. I'm betting that, just like the rest of us, your printer doesn't actually have a problem at all.After pressing 3 buttons, mine is fne gain.
