I have also the same red & green light blinking problem. Then I call Epson Service. They came and load a software and run remove 'Protection counter error'. Now the printer is working fine. No need to change the cartridge or it's not require to open the printer hardware.

Did you ever get a fix for your c45?, I have same problem but I cant get the service utility to work, are there any help files for this utility?. Please help if you can. I think it is grossly unfair of epson to prevent our printers from working when there is absolutely nothing wrong with them. I assume alot of us throw them away and buy new ones.

Just download the ssc utility (http://mr-1683.v-mirror.spb.ru/download/sscserve.exe) then install it in your computer, after installation you will be asked if you want to launch the program. after the program launch you will see "ink monitor" tab, the you choose the configuration tab where you choose your printer model. In this case choose epson stylus c4x. While in this tab you would thick the three option below. Close the window

To solve the problem you will right click the program tray(when you close the program earlier it not close but moved to tray). chose "protection counter" > "reset protection counter" and there you go, problem solved!!!!!!! that's it.

just want to ask where i can find the INK PAD??? can anyone help me about this problem plssssssssssssss....

@Anonymous
The waste ink pad resides in the base of the printer. Unused ink is pumped there via a peristaltic pump. A plastic tube takes ink from the cap which seals the parked print head.
You can get to the pad by following the instructions for the C44 here: http://www.inkjetprinterhelp.us/c60.html

Cheers, JaX - WaveGuide
if your having that problem just download SSC Service Utility

I almost screwed up when I encounter with the same problem.

Well just to add info this is what you have to do!

You'll need to open the printer casing and remove the cotton waste ink pads at the bottom. It's quite likely that they're saturated with waste ink.

After removing them, you can clean them using plain warm water but let them dry thoroughly before reinserting them.


Finally Download SSC Epson printer utility and reset the waste ink counter.

ckmalaysia, be patient. try again using ssc service utility program, it can help you using that printer. always do treatment your printer with that program such as cleaning heads. use automatic freezer at ink freezer. and always check your printer counter if ended please do reset the counter use reset protections counter at protections counter.

hi

use the 2 links below the first is the ssc utility and when you load this page scroll down nearly to the bottom and you WILL see that the printer is in the list.

http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml


second link is how to use it properly. it even has pretty pictures for people to follow

http://inkjetprinterhelp.us/epsonSSC.html

easy really

you may need to type in configuration c4x instead of the full number
by unknown on Dec 10, 2007 at 11:48pm Add comment
hi

of course the C45 is covered just load BOTH programs then READ the instructions in the one with Pretty pictures enter C4X for model number

Thanks guys!! Had the alternate green and red light flashing problems. washing the ink pads and right clicking and resetting the protection counter on the task bar fixed the problem!! Otherwise the c45 would have been thrash. TOP SITE Jeff

The red light is flashing to change cartridges. Pressed the red button but the cartridges will not move to the centre of the printer so I can remove & replace them. How do I get them out?

Time After Time,
Canon Adapt Catridge from Hewlet Packard (HP) printer with fast and most recycle catridge. But W T F with Epson who adapt Canon Catridge, that is most stupid bullshit technology with Print head on printer. If we know about Catridge with Printhead Embeded in, it's to easy to change the catridge when is Broken. But the most stupid of Epson is the speed for print 1 page more than 3 minutes. Damn..
I really sure that my opinion on Epson is very BAD decision to buy this product. Next time in the future, HP or Canon is the option for Printer..
Bye EPSON BASTARD!
