Add a bit more detail and I may be able to help you.
Under what situation does the light come on.
Is it a constant light or a flashing one.
Does it happen at the same point every time (i.e. startup, when beginning a print job, half way through a print job etc) or is it intermittent.
Have you had any other problems recently like a paper jam, have you changed anything (ink for instance).

Give as much detail as possible please.

SOURCE: GReen light keeps flashing and my printer wont print

two options
1)either any of the printer cartridge is faulty.remove the cartridge and clean it with tissue paper.
2)or the printouts are pending in printque.delete all the printouts and then try .
any one of the above options will solve the problem.
if cleaning the cartridge does not solve that means it faulty so replacement of cartridge is necessary.

Some times you need to find the epson tools that comes on the CD to reset the printer. If you have upgraded the computer you may need to update your drivers at the epson sight.
Once you have opened the epson tools try cleaning the print heads.
then it should reset the inking system to default and read the new cartridges. If this doesn't work try shutting down the printer and removing the ink cartridges, restart the printer and allow it to find no cartridges the go through the process of reloading the ink cartridges again and cycle the printer.

If this doesn't work you may need to try and find a cleaning cartridge for the print heads. Since the printers always check to see if ink is getting to the print heads if there is no ink flow it will always come up like there are no ink cartridges installed.

Hope this helps


Make sure paper is in properly they can be very picky about that.
Try turning it off wait three minutes and turn back on.
Then
Push Paper refill button Wait for cycle and see if paper light stays off if so...
Push the ink button

Lanier 5645 cannot reset printer red button just keeps coming on


when you press the 'red' button, it probably says 'paper mismatch, or load "XXX" paper, and you can override it by selecting one of your paper trays manually? It is likely a "legal size document' and you don't have legal size paper loaded, or something along those lines. Try printing the document after manually selecting the paper size/tray (turning off auto paper select) in your printer preferences dialog box on your PC first.
