2 lights flashing


What is the flash pattern?

If the red paper light and the red ink light are blinking in an alternating pattern, then you may have a foreign object or piece of paper blocking the movement of the print head. Turn off the printer, open the printer and look for anything in the printhead path. Remove anything that doesn't belong. Some printers have a strip that the print head travels across that can sometimes come out of position. This can be repositioned by moving it up and down as well as forward and back to align in a guide on the back of the print head.

After clearing the obstruction, close the printer and turn it back on. If the error persists, then the unit needs service.

If the red paper light and the red ink light are blinking together and the green power light is off, then the printer has an internal error. Turn it off and then back on. If the error persists, the unit needs service.

One internal error could be the waste ink absorber is full. These pads are below the printhead and absorb ink during cleaning cycles. To reach them is messy and takes disassembling the printer from the top. This may include removing the print head. Pull the pads, blot the ink off them and the places where they fit in the printer. Run clean water over the pads until the water remains clear. Dry the pads (use a hair dryer to speed the process). Then reassemble the printer.

Next navigate to http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/InkPadsForm.jsp and fill in the model and serial number of the printer (as well as the other required information). You will get a link to download a reset utility for Windows. Run this tool to solve the error. Do not run this utility until the pads are replaced or cleaned; waste ink will get everywhere inside the printer and over your documents.

I hope this helps.

My both red light is blinking continuously what i do help me


both light are blinking at the same time or blinking alternatively ?
if both blinking same time, it's a fatal error.. means it could be something wrong with the carriage or board or encoder belt...
if the light blink alternatively, it means the waste ink counter need to be reset and ink pad need to be replaced.

C43 stylus does'nt print while red and green lights stay on


If the light are flashing, it mean waste ink full. You must clean waste ink pad, and reset the counter. You can use SSC, find at indoreset.blogspot.com. But,.. you said the light are on. try to resinstall driver. after printer recognised by comp, check status monitor. Green light on is power on, and red on mean chip error/ink out error/cartridge error.

Error 5800 on Canon Pixma MP170


Solution #1 worked with my MP170 but it could be described more clearly, as follows:-

1. If the power is on, turn it off (press the on/off button).

2. Hold down the stop/reset button (red triangle in red circle).

3. Whilst still holding down the stop/reset button, hold down the on/off button.

4. Whilst still holding down the on/off button, release the stop/reset button.

5. Now press the stop/reset button twice, quickly.

6. Next release the on/off button.

7. Wait untill the LCD display shows “Canon idle” (this may take a few minutes).

8. Now push the stop/reset button 4 times in succession, quickly.

9. Press the on/off button twice, quickly.

10. Now press the on/off button to switch the power off.

11. Finally, press the on/off button to switch the power back on.

This sets the ink pad counter to zero, even though the pad still contains ink.

Remove ink from the pad, as follows:-

Open the lid of the printer to reveal the cartridge track and ink pad.

Winkle out the ink pad, using a pin or a small screwdriver or tweezers.

Wash the ink pad in clean water, squashing the pad to remove the ink.

Dry the clean pad by squashing it between sheets of kitchen paper.

Replace the pad, taking care to fit it between the alignment notches.

Amen!

Printer showing error


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 use it 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. This is quite straightforward once you know what to do.

If you decide to have a go at replacing the ink pads yourself, post a new comment, and I will provide further help.

Epson C43SX communication error


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

http://support2.epson.net/manuals/english/ij/stylusc43/REF_G/INDEX.HTM

which provides good information on the meanings of the error lights.

Please report back with further information if the above advice doesn't help.

Red light is always on


The error light on the C43sx is quite "non-descriptive". It simply means there is an error - that error depends upon the flashing/timing of the light.

I suggest you get hold of the Epson service software to get a better idea of the problem. It is quite possible the machine has simply hit the ink overflow protection counter limit, which is easy to fix with the above software. It is also possible the machine has a fatal error in which case the trash bin beckons.

Visit this person for a source of the software and more help.
