Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
Hi. The printer we have now has been converted to CISS and it was working fine until recently when the two red lights started blinking. Our ink supplier emailed us the resetting instructions and it didn't work the first time we tried it. Their technician went here and they were able to reset it on another computer. However, we noticed that the error message that appears each time we print keeps appearing. After a day or two, we couldn't use the printer again. Another expert said that there may be a problem with the hardware itself (e.g. inkpad) but did not give any instructions on how to solve this. I have notified our ink supplier again about this but I am not sure how long it will take them to get here. Our shop is in Cavite. If there is a step-by-step guide that you can give us that we can do ourselves that would be ideal. Thanks!
I had a similar problem with my CX5500, there seemed to be something blocking the carriage movement. I looked inside to find a child's sock, so to fix this error REMOVE SOCK FROM PRINTER (or any other obsturction like crunched paper perhaps)

Try downloading this resetter, just follow the link. SSC Service utility won't work CX5500 is not supported by SSC even with the latest version 4.3
If you did not put out the tube for the ink flow before using the CISS then most probably your ink pad is full. The best solution I can offer for this is you should put out the ink flow tube and just let the ink pad dry up after resetting.
For help in putting out the tuber for ink flow please email me at email@example.com. I can send you photos.

"error: part inside your printer (blah blah blah)" well if you have a printer cx5500 by epson and you are using cis. you might need a resetter program or software available download via internet... if you all ready have one then ok.... follow the instructions.... if it work then ok again.. if you reset your printer multiple time and not actually changing or cleaning your waste ink pad then you have a problem... because if you are reseting no matter how many times if did not replace or cleaned your waste ink pad it will always ask for a reset, just always remember if you reset your printer clean your waste ink pad... how to get the waste ink pad.... you have to dismantle your cx5500 which is pretty tough and if you can't do it don't try to dismantle it.... approach a professional.... or a repairman.... use the internet to find one....

I have the same problem with my CX5500. I have tried that CX5500 specific resetter but the problem still comes back after turning on the printer twice...

The most help I can offer is a link to a utility program designed to reset most (if not all) parameters of a variety of Epson printer models. You need to determine if said utility program will work with your particular model. This utility is SSC Service Utility for Epson Stylus Printers and may be downloaded from here. Additional information may be viewed here.
Even if your specifi model is not mentioned, often the the utility program works so perhaps you can still download and give it a try.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Guys I have used that
SSC Service utility and it worked good for me first thing i did was clean the ink waste pad inside my CS5500 (too messy if you cannot dis assemble dont try!) and after cleaning the wasted i have to let it dry before i assemble it again.... when its all done the assembling takes place another hard thing to do (i Hate disassemble & assemble)... then i used SSC Service utility and walla Ink waste pad was reseted...the last problem i encountered is that my nozzel got clogged!....
For help in putting out the tuber for ink flow just remove the cover in the back of your printer and pull out the hose just put a container...... (this works for me!) ^_~
if you have questions just e-mail it to at firstname.lastname@example.org
and i can give you a copy of my said SSC utility..

Try this program it work with my cx5500.the instructions are included in the program....
don't forget to clean the waste ink pad firs before resetting.....
There's an opening at the back of the printer....you will see a tube there......remove the tube and place it in a small container so the ink can flow there....and then you can run the program....
