Remove and then replace the black ink. Make sure you remove any sealing tape that may be covering holes in the ink cartidge.

The Epson C64 should be straightforward with respect to plugging the machine in, since the connection is USB. The USB cable plugs into a USB port on your computer and the power cord plugs into a wall outlet.
Perhaps the trickiest thing is determining the software needed to allow the printer to work properly. The software needed is determined by your operating system, e.g. Mac OS, Windows XP, Windows 7, etc.

Check your cartridge to make sure there is Ink in them and properly aligned

On this printer, the black colour is a separate cartridge.

It is possible that is has run out of ink or maybe is blocked in some way.

Try removing the black cartridge and hold it up to a bright light to check the ink level.

Make sure the contacts where the ink flows out are clean and not blocked with dirt.

If there is plenty of ink but it still won't print then try a new black cartridge.

Issues in color printer are many. The most common one is the non-printing of color prints. This issue might be due to corrupted or incompatible drivers in your printer. When the driver installed in a color printer is corrupted or not installed correctly it might lead to issues. So in order to solve this issue you need to install or replace the corrupted driver with a new powerful driver; or reinstall the driver since the issue might be due to wrong installation of drivers.

Probably the waste ink tank is full.Look here.

I managed to solve the problem, thanks to this fantastic freeware tool: http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml The problem has to do with the porous inkpads which are expected to overflow after a fixed number of nozzle cleaning cycles. However the problem is a software, not a hardware one. This great tool resets countes as well as ink cartridge chips. Thank you very much FixYa all the same for trying. Too bad there are some lunatics who post unrelated topics to this forum. Kind regards, PM

tendency is that the tubes for the ink might be clogged. what you can try to do is spray it with wd40 leave it for 3 to 4 hrs then try again. make sure you put a rag in the bottom for the spills to be catched.

Hi! Just a thought. Its either you dont have any black ink or may need run maintenance to start cleaning the printer head. Hope this helps and have a good one!

If the error message reads parts inside the printer are at the end of its service life, and both red lights flashing alternately while power light is off, it is an indication that the waste ink pad is full and needs to be replaced. This part is not user replaceable so you need to take in the printer for service.

you might see a little banding in the low quality mode but if you see it in the high quality mode or in text then you have a clogged jet .. you can run the nozzle cleaning utility .. that will usually fix it .. sometimes you have to run it more than once .. if cleaning doesnt help then you might need a new head (expensive) ..

ink problem, replace your ink cartrige

You need to change your ink.

If changing the ink doesn't work for you, there is always a work around.

Go to this link and download the 'SSC Service Utility'.

After installing SSC, you can reset your ink status from your pc and you should be good to go!



Epson C64 InkJet... | Answered on Mar 11, 2010

If the lights are flashing together then this will be a carriage error, if alternately then this will be the Service Maintenance request which will require reset software such as the SSC Utility. http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml
