SSC Service Utility

If you have an Epson printer, you may find the SSC Service Utility to be a useful download. It lets you reset the ink counters, clean individual cartridges (instead of all of them at once, thus saving ink) and swap out cartridges even if they’re not empty.
It’s free and supports most Epson printers – it certainly seemed to work with my Stylus C42.
I found this in today’s LangaList Plus Edition, which is very useful and well worth the extra money. If you’re interested in any aspect of computing I’d urge you to subscribe as I’ve got quite a bit out of it over the past couple of years.


  1. Hey- this is a nice app. It now lives permanently in my system tray. Thanks 🙂

  2. Is that LangaList link supposed to go somewhere?

  3. It does now 🙂 . Typo in the HTML code.

  4. My printer brought up a message to phone for an engeneer. I emptied the ink holders, will this program get rid of the message and allow me to continue printing?
