I have an epson c45 printer last year it was pefectly performed and print well but due to high price ink we keep it inside our stock room until now we decided to use it again. Light are ok and functioning well but when we put a piece of A4 and starting to print., there is no ink discharged after i print a document only a clean A4 bond paper was released from the printer no letters. Hope you can advise me what going to do. I already check nozzle, apply head cleaning but no results yet. Thank you.

The problem is non use. Once used the printer has ink in the printheads and nozzles which will dry up and clog if left for a period of time.

This could need several head cleans to clear and potentially empty the ink carts before it's cleared.

I have an epson R300 which has 6 ink carts and I do quite a lot of printing my solution was to by a continuous ink supply system (I've had it 4 years now) and my ink costs can be counted in pennies.

The initial set up cost was less than the price of carts from Epson.

This is just an example of what it is, I would recommend though that you do your own search in Google (Epson c45 CISS) or Ebay (Epson CISS), find a retailer in your country (helps if you have problems/issues) and if they don't list for your model then contact them and ask.

I can't rcommend a retailer as I don't know which country you are from but the vast majority are most helpful.

Hope this helps you to get printing again.

Trouble with my epson stylus c45 printer. PLEASE HELP!?


this is usually caused by clogged print heads, unfortunately epson is still one of few brands that still manufactures most of their printers with the heads built into the machine and thus upon print head clogging the printer must be taken in to be serviced or buy a new printer that does not have the print heads built in but rather built into the ink cartridges. hope this helps.

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.

You can set the printer to print in only Black ink from Control Panel / Printers and Faxes.
Right click the printer icon for you printer and click on Printing Preferences.

The option to print only in black will be there somewhere (It varies depending on the type of printer)
Try Paper/Quality or Color tabs

C46 printer


I could not find the manual, but I hope this helps:
I'm not sure if the waste ink pads are in the same place as the c45, but i hope this helps.
Locating the waste ink pads was pretty easy. First of all you have to dissasemble the case, then remove the paper slot. To do this you have to unscrew three or four screws (at least in my c45) that keep the paper slot attached to the printer. After doing this you will see the ink pads, they are at the bottom back of the printer. Mine has four of them with an "L" alike shape.
Clean them with plain water, then let them dry a couple of hours until all the moisture is gone.
I advice you to remove both ink cartidges before doing this because an strange thing happened to me.
After removing the ink pads i cleaned the ink pad container (you'll see the little tube that drains the "waste" ink from the cartidges to the pads) then a couple of hours later i found that the container was full of ink!! confused1.gif . And of course, the ink cartidges were almost empty upset.gif
That happened because i didn't remove the ink cartidges before doing the whole process. I have no idea why that happened but probably by removing them you'll avoid that.

Epson resetter software can be found at http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml (the link to download it is located at the bottom of the page)
One last thing, to reset the waste ink counter you have to go to "Protection Counter" menu and then click "Reset Protection Counter".


You may have to copy and paste the link into your browser.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

epson.com, actually you can print using black ink only, but you have to reset the color ink for it to register as full. :) or you can freeze the ink counter using the ssc service utility before the other ink rans out. :)

Problem with C45


If you are using plain paper it happens due to ink density and absorption factors of paper.

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.

Epson C66 won't print without color cartidges


epson printers won't really print if one cartridge is not detected or detected as empty. the only option that i can suggest to you is that, buy a continous ink kit at any ink refilling station in your place. i highly recommend that dont leave a cartridge empty with ink cause it might clog your printhead. using a continous ink system's cartridge is auto reset, whenever the printer says that the cartridge is empty, it will automatically resets itself. ink refill kit comes with 100+ml of ink per color i think. and it is much cheaper using original epson ink.
