Question about Epson Stylus C43SX InkJet Printer
My Epson C43SX power on normally,but ink level doesn't appear.When i start printing it become blinking. I tryed to reset with SSC but appeard Communication error.
What the solutions?
It is presumed the 6 posts in this problem are all from the same person. If one (or more) isn't, and my response below doesn't help, would you you start a new separate post on your particular problem.
A solitary blinking red light means that the ink level in one of your cartridges is low, but printing can continue normally until the ink runs out, at which point the red light becomes permanently on. You must now change the ink cartridge before the print will work again.
If the green light is flashing at the same time as the red one, this 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 to 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 C43 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.
If you decide to have a go at replacing the ink pads yourself, report back and I will provide further help.
The reference manual is at
which provides good information on the meanings of the error lights.
Please report back with further information if the above advice doesn't help.
