Check to see if the carriage is moving out of the service station area. If its not..there is a white plastic sensor that is not moving properly. Did you have a paper jam recently?

Hey,

Remove the cart ridges, restart printer, does the lights still flash? restart printer, place cartridges back in, make sure the tape is removed from the cartridge. also you can try cleaning the contacts.

So after you have connected the carts again, restart printer. how is it?

Thanks,
Ekse

Just changed cartridges to refills and clour and black lights flashinghowever we can still print ok. Why are the lights flashing?


The lights are flashing because you are using refilled cartridges. The printer "sees" those cartridges as empty, since it can not know that someone has refilled them. When you put in new cartridges, the lights will stop flashing.
Just ignore the lights and print!

Hope that helps!

Epson D68 red light on constantly, checked the ink cartridges, then had 2 red flashing lights now back to one


Remove and reinsert the cartridges - the cartridge lid may be open.

Also, the printer may need to be reset. From:

Select the Epson resetter, Save, unzip and run.

Hope this helps.

Green light flashing Red light on


with regards to the status of the lights., its either the cartridges that you installed is not recognized by the printer's print head or cartridges are defective.
try these steps:
if all the inks are new take them out and get an eraser and rub the small chip gently so as to clean the contacts of the chip ( don't touch it with your finger ) reinsert the cartridges in the printer and allow it to charge.

Blinking lights on Lexmark Z12 printer


Unfortunately, the Lexmark website is set up so I can't provide you with direct links to the workaround for these problems....
Go here: http://support.lexmark.com/perl/support/support.cgi
Do a search on "blinking flashing lights + Z12"
and try to follow the steps outlined in the troubleshooting guides that calls up.
This is the most likely candidate, but there are others that could cause this symptom:

Lights Flashing on the Printer ID: 241
Test the cartridges one by one and do the printer hardware test (refer to the relevant document for your printer) to establish which one is defective. The defective cartridge needs to be changed.

If the power light on the printer is blinking, you may have a carrier stall. To check this:
First unplug the printer.
Move the cartridges to the left by hand. In order to do this, you need to grip the top of the carrier belt (a black/grey belt with cog-like teeth) and pull it towards the right-hand side of the printer.
Once the cartridges have been moved across, you can clip them out.
Try to print without the cartridges in the carrier.
If you no longer have a carrier stall, put the cartridges back into the carrier and clip them into place.
I hope one of these options will provide you with the solution to your problem. If not, please write back with a report of what you tried and we will try to help you further.
