If your having an error that says "Parts inside the printer are at the end of there Service life" it means that you ink pad is full/ what you can do is change your ink pad and then download an ink pad reset utility so that you can reset the settings/ Make sure to change ink pad before you reset it becuase ink will leak if you don't change it. For the flashing lights, try to check for obstructions inside the printer if not, make sure that ink clicked in and the cover for the tray is closed

SOURCE: Epson C66 red light stays on for ink

The first time you install ink cartridges, the printer must charge its print head for about 90 seconds. Wait until charging finishes (the green power.jpg power light stops flashing) before you turn off the printer, or

it may charge improperly and use excess ink the next time you turn it on. If the printer stops moving or making noise, but the green power.jpg power light is still flashing after 5 minutes, turn off the printer. If the light is still flashing when you turn it back on, contact Epson.
Turn off the printer, then make sure the ink cartridges are inserted completely and the ink cartridge cover is closed completely. Also make sure no packing material remains in the printer. Wait a moment, then turn the printer back on to clear the error.

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.

Without the benefit of a response from any of rickyostrom, liusgarciaca, or hotdog233311, I think we can say the problem lies with the fact that your magenta cartridge isn't printing. You can confirm this by carrying out a nozzle check print.

If any of you would like further assistance in restoring your magenta to working condition, please do a new post to this effect.

hi dude
your printer's ink waste pads are full and the counter needs resetting Try this site and software

It allows resetting of the counters, and gives much more control over cleans etc. (Also will allow cleaning when the red Ink light is flashing)
