Hi,

How long have you been using your printer? and how many pages have you printed and the quality of it?

The reason am asking is that it could be that your printer has reached a certain limit of its parts based on the no. of pages it has printer. Please take note that each part of your printer, especially the mechanical parts has certain limits based on the no. of pages it has printed. Based on my experience with epson printers is that, first to reach its limit is the porous pad, if it reach it limits it will disable your printer from printing further to protect it from further damage. Everytime you print some ink goes to waste and goes to the porous pad which means it could get full. Please bring you printer to an authorized epson service center to have the pad remove or whatever parts the limits reach first. After parts replacement the technician will use a software tool to reset the counter and voila :) Your printer should be working fine until it reach another limit. Note: All printer brands uses counter to protect their unit.

The status of my printer (epson stylus c45)is idle. There's this yellow exclamation point before the message-Service Required then...inside the dialogue box it's written that Parts inside your printer are...


You will need to get it serviced at an authorized Epson Repair shop as the parts that are at the end of service life are not user servicable. With the price of printers today it would be cheaper to buy a new one with updated technology than to try and have this one refurbished. Hope this helps.

Parts are end of their service life


completely arbitrary message..if it still works, don't worry about it. Of coourse the mfr wants to sell you a new printer, just like when the ink says its empty and it isn't.

most problem with printers are dirt inside. if you want to experiment, try opening the printer, usually held by snaps, if accomplished clean all contacts, cables ribbon wires, then reassemble. thats easier said than done.

Epson c45


Hi,

The most help I can offer is a link to a utility program designed to reset most (if not all) parameters of a variety of Epson printer models. You need to determine if said utility program will work with your particular model. This utility is SSC Service Utility for Epson Stylus Printers and may be downloaded from here. Additional information may be viewed here.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Epson stylus c45 (Problem)


If both lights are flashing, it means the Waste Ink Pads in your printer are saturated with ink and the waste ink ("protection") counter has exceeded its limit. The Waste Ink Pads should be replaced as soon as possible. You can overcome this problem temporarily by using the SSC utility - download from

http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml

and reset the Protection Counter. This will stop the lights flashing and restore normal operation. However, remember that eventually ink will overflow from the waste ink area and make a dreadful mess, so you must change the waste ink pads before this happens. This requires the disassembly of the printer. A copy of the service manual is available from a number of sellers - just Google "Epson C45 Service Manual". You will often find them
for sale very cheaply on E-Bay.
