Question about Epson Stylus CX4600 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I was cleaning the ink jets and all stopped! I now have flashing red and green with an E code! Can I correct this?
I had the same problem, and i did not find the actual solution here..
the problem is just an old waste ink pad. if you move the thing that
holds all of your ink cartridge, you should see a blue ink bad. replace
that or get a bunch of tissue and qtips to dry it up by pressing on it
(your hands will get very dirty). then you need to download a software
to reset the value of your "protection counter." i got the solution
once you install the software, just close it (it will actually minimize it to your task bar). then right click it >> protection counter >> reset protection counter. if u want, you can even check your current value. i had 39000/36000, which is why i keep getting that error "E" or end of life. once you reset the counter, just turn off your printer, and turn it back on. it'll work like it is brand new.
HOWEVER, if you did not replace your pad, you wanna clean that thing as much as you can and as frequent because even though the value will be reset to 0, once you print that value will jump to maybe 20000 depending on how well u cleaned it. then you will have to go through the process of resetting it again (which is no big deal). hope this helped
