I have an epson stylus C66 printer. Need to clean ink pads don't know where they are. Don't know how to take the printer apart to do this. Not a easy task.
Does anyone have a service manual for the epson stylus C66 printer? Would be grateful if someone could send it to me.

Sorry I didn't reply sooner but been mental since the wedding, honeymoon and return to work.

The C66 is very similar to the C86 and requires a little more work to modify the waste ink to flow out to an external tank but it's do-able.

Guide is available here:

As to the ink already in the pads, it should eventually evaporate out the liquid base and be ok to just leave if you do the modification above so no real problems...

Hope that helps.

Only in North America... You have to have a valid serial number and basically accept a warranty invalidation to get the utility.

European and Asian serial numbers do not work and are considered invalid by the form. No idea if the utilities will actually work with them though.

But for C66 it's irrelevant anyway.
