Question about Epson Stylus C44UX InkJet Printer
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
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 C44 Service Manual". You will often find them for sale very cheaply on E-Bay. Note, however, if you can find or borrow any of the C40,42,44,60,62 service manuals, as far as ink pad replacement goes, they are the same.
