I'm in a right mess with my Epson C62. I was head cleaning with SSC Service utility, when I accidentally clicked Initial Charge. After a few minutes of various loud noises,nothing seemed to be happening or stopping,so I turned it off. On restarting, I discovered the green mains light and the red ink charging and error light were flashing in sequence....red/green/red etc. I can do nothing to stop this and needless to say the printer won't work. I tried to uninstall and re-install but no joy. It doesn't seem to fully install and, actually it may not be properly uninstalling either. The lights go on flashing and this paralyses the printer...nothing functions. Can anyone help?

Thanks johndrew, couldn't find a C62. Just had an on-screen telling me that parts of the printer are at the end of their service life and to contact my dealer. It's less than two years old and it's had by no means a lot of use. Anyone recommend a decent cheap printer with reasonable ink costs?

Take a look at Canon printers. Mine is 5 years old, seperate ink tanks and decent printouts. Using generic refils it runs fairly cheaply.

Must admit I`m still using my Epson Stylus 740 which is some (many?) years old and still doing its job.

I refill my own with JR Inkjet refil kits which I find very good - and not very expensive.

My mate's business printer is still going strong after many years - it's an HP 890C.

That Notice usually means that the Waste Tank is full. You can deal with it yourself if you are brave.

I certainly did, but I couldn't see anything about Waste Tanks.....did I miss it?
