Hello Absprinter2,

The flashing lights (number and duration) have meaning specific to the make and model of the printer. So there may be more to this, but generically speaking:

Your printer is telling you it thinks the ink cartridge is empty and it wants it replaced.


After replacement, if a problem persists, let me know. Include the make model and number (or pattern) of the flashing lights. That will tell us exactly what's up.

Thanks for using FixYa.

    Additional info. If it seems unlikely the cartridge(s) need replacement (printer is new, carts recently replaced, etc), just reply with the make, model, number of flashes and anything else that might be pertinent to the problem.

    To all of you with 'The same problem', I have the same problem with all of you. It's people that think I am clairvoyant enough to magically know the make and model of your printer. Then I get a nice down rate, drive-by, whatever. Nice

The red light on my epson printer wont turn off and it wont print,ive changed both ink cartridges and still no change.


Hi

Which button has the red light or which LED light? Is it flashing or steady red light? turn it off and check for any obstruction and double check if you installed ink cartridges properly.

Hope this helps

Printer wont work just feeds paper straight through


First try reinstalling driver software on your computer.

Either use printer CD or download from website:

Epson Driver Download

Epson America, Inc. - Support

If problem persists after downloading software, then that means that ink had clogged the printheads after drying up on old installed cartridges.
In that case either order a new printhead from Epson, or replace the printer.
