SOURCE: Black Toner replaced

This is what happens when you also do a refil, but the advice from the refill people is to ignore the low ink warning as it will print happily until the point that the next message comes up which is that you need to replace the toner. Effectively this is to do with teh chip in the cartridge thaht tells the printer that it is low and unless you buy a new cartridge you will still get the low toner message but it is safe to ignore.

COULD YOU ADVISE ME HOW TO CHANGE THE INK

SOURCE: Green and Red Lights are blinking alternately

Please go to my website http://www.the-inkstore.co.uk . I have the latest version of SSC Service Utility to download directly onto your computer and instructions on how to use it, what to click on etc etc. Click any of the Epson links if you can't find it, everything you need to know will be there, including printer Firmware resetting which sorts out a multitude of problems.

The 'maintenance required' problem with Epson printers has absolutely nothing to do with which cartridges you are using, it is a built in page counter in your printer firmware, which has a different maximum amount for each Epson model. Don't listen to old wives tales and heresay, we are the experts and it's an Epson scam to cause a lot of people to pay for maintenance or throw their printers away.
I haven't found a model that can't be reset with the latest version of SSC Serve or the manual reset on my site.

For Epson RX500 users there is also a manual reset on my site, as the SSC Serve software won't do it for you.
When using the program & choosing your printer from the list, it may have a weird name with 'x' in the model number, this is because some configurations are for many models in a series. For example, the C46 will be listed as C4x as it is for the C42, C44 & C46 models.

I hope this helps all Epson users to overcome the Epson scam of page counting and locking out until you pay their dealers money for maintenance.

If you like what I've done for Epson users, please show your appreciation by spreading the word and perhaps buying your ink from my site.

Happy trouble free printing

When printing, as thepaper is being transported up the printer, try pressing the right door panel of the printer firmly with your hand. If the colours are much improved then the printer requires a new Transfer roller.
1. Open the Right Door.
2. Remove the Transfer Roller while opening the shaft holder (white color) levers found at the left and right shaft ends of the Transfer Roller to unlock it. Lift out the roller.

Problem printing multiple copies of a single page document


I have a similar problem with an old HP LJ1300. They have not updated the driver correctly and don't intend to fix it. I can't find any reference to AcuLaser C900 on Epson's support page. So maybe they stopped supporting the C900.

I want to change the colour toner cartridge but it isn't empty - I can't move it round to release it


Assuming you are using Windows:

Method 1: Using Software.
=====================
Go to Start Menu
Open 'Control Panel'
Open 'Printers & Faxes'
Right-click on 'Epson AL C900'
Select 'Properties'
Select 'Optional Settings' tab
Select 'Printer Settings'
The option at the bottom lets you select which toner you wish to change.


Method 2: Mechanical Solution.
=========================
Switch the printer off
Open the front door
Just inside the door, on the left, just above half-way down (to the left of the toner-changing aperture), look for the following:
A horizontal rectangular hole with four raised plastic posts (2 above / 2 below). Behind the hole is the end of a hollow plastic rod.
Use a broad-bladed screwdriver to push this spring-loaded rod about a centimetre into the machine. That releaces the ratchet and the cartridge carousel can be rotated anti-clockwise by hand.

Red lights flashing. I dont think the ink is out and i did try taking them out following the instructions and put the same ones back in but it still won't print and the light is still flashing, will it...


Printer wouldn't print if red light flashing. Check status monitor for detail? Are some ink not recognized? Do replacement procedure from status monitor on "How to...". Unplug all ink tank. Plug only one ink tank . See status monitor. Is ink tank recognized. repeat procedure, and add ink tank 1 by 1. How about status monitor then?

Red light on steady


If the ink light is on steady red, that means the black or color ink cartridge is nearly empty. Obtain a replacement black or color ink cartridge. To know which cartridge is out of ink, check the ink levels using EPSON Status Monitor 3 (Windows) or EPSON Status Monitor (Macintosh). If you just replaced the cartridges before you got the error light, that means that the replacement cartridge is not recognized by your printer. Please reseat cartridges. Then turn the printer on and off. The cartridges maybe bad also.
If the paper light is on steady red, try to reload 10-20 sheets of regular paper into your printer. When printing on CD/DVD, CD/DVD tray is not inserted in the printer. Insert the CD/DVD tray in the printer and press the paper button.Could also be that the printer has loaded more than one sheet of paper at a time. Load paper in the sheet feeder, and then press the paper button to resume printing. If the CD/DVD guide is open, close the CD/DVD guide, load paper and then press the paper button.
