Power light flashing and paper light ! epson stylus c64


Hi!
the matter is that Epson, apart from the chips was invented so that when the printer takes a certain amount of printed pages (about 8000 or so, in most models), suddenly stops working , the two buttons start to flash and does not walk more.

This is because the ink that they will bring to the cartridges when cleaning heads, going somewhere.These are the waste ink tanks, this is where you stay, and the printer has a meter that estimates when the tank is full and stops the printer to prevent ink overflow and cause an internal short circuit.

How do I unlock it?

To save money and the hassle of carrying it to better manage service yourself. You download the software company that provides ssc, Static Control Components, the following page:
http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml
and the manual for use the program is here traslated onto english

Says parts need replacing but they dont how do I get the printer to work


If the error message reads parts inside the printer are at the end of its service life, and both red lights flashing alternately while power light is off, it is an indication that the waste ink pad is full and needs to be replaced. This part is not user replaceable so you need to take in the printer for service.

Red Ink Light is Staying on


You need to change your ink.

If changing the ink doesn't work for you, there is always a work around.

Go to this link and download the 'SSC Service Utility'.

After installing SSC, you can reset your ink status from your pc and you should be good to go!

Both red lights flashing


If the lights are flashing together then this will be a carriage error, if alternately then this will be the Service Maintenance request which will require reset software such as the SSC Utility. http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml

The Waste Ink Pads are saturated and the waste ink 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 red 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.

The C64/66 service manual can be downloaded from here:
http://www.eserviceinfo.com/downloadsm/12748/Epson_C64%20and%20C84.html

Should you decide to have a go at changing the waste ink pads, let me know and I can supply some notes on opening the case - it's a pig and the service manual is not that helpful.
