Question about Epson Stylus 880 InkJet Color Printer

1 Answer

All front panel lights flashing

When I power up the stylus 880 printer, it starts the checking procedure (ink carraige moves and paper advance rollers move) but all four lights on the front of the printer begin flashing before the sequence is complete. After that nothing will work. Can't move carraige to check ink cartriges, adding paper does not help. Is this a horse with a broken leg??? Or can it be repaired??

When i turn on the printer all the lights are blinking, i have reset the printer many times, restarted my computer and nothing has worked to help the problem. I just printed yesterday with this printer...


The Epson Stylus Color 880 has 4 LEDs. If all 4 are flashing or blinking then the printer has a maintenance request error. It means that the waste ink counter has reach its limit. The remedy is to replace the waste ink pads and reset the waste ink counter. You can use the SSC service utility to reset the protection counter. You can download the utility from here http://inkjetprinterhelp.us/epsonSSC.html

You can also use the control paler to reset the counter. Timing is the key to success when you reset the counter using the control panel so keep that in mind. To reset the protection counter using the control panel (front panel):

Step 1.Turn the power on while holdint the following buttons doen. Paper feed, cleaning button. (thr paper out light will flash for 3 seconds)
Step 2.While the paper out light is still flashing press the cleaning button for 10 seconds. The following leds will flash in sequence Ink out lights black and color, Paper out light. Once the printer starts to initilize the counter should be reset. This will reset the protection counter.

All the warning lights are flashing on my printer how do I get it working again? I pressed the ink check button for the 3 secs and now it will not move on to be used as the lights just keep flashing.


this usually means there is a paper jam of some sort. I would triple check to make sure no pieces of ripped paper are stuck in the rollers or are visible.after doing this, shut the pc down and the printer as well wait a few minutes start the printer and then the pc. if the lights are still on, verify that one of the ink cartridges had not become loose. this also happens when you forcefully move the printer head back. good luck

Printer heads won't move into view....just makes a grinding noise. All lights are flashing. Thanks!!!!


with it making a "grinding" noise, I first wonder if you have children. if so, then open the lid and/ or look in the paper feed area for plastic tools, band aids, etc. (worked in tech support and once had a gerbil stuck in a printer by it's tail! OUCH!)

if not, then try this procedure that I found else-where on Fix-Ya.

"Turn the printer on while holding down both the ink and paper buttons. When the paper light flashes release both buttons, then hold down the ink button for approx. half a minute until the printer lights flash again then release it. That resets the printer.”
