Leaking cartridge, heads need cleaning, and alignment. Run your utility it will solve those that are fixable, if it is sttill bleeding, you got a bad cartrtridge, open the area where the ink goes and look for visible leakage of ink to start, I'll await you findings and go from there, But you cand clean the heads and line up the heads thru the utility.

A communications error usually means that there's a problem with the connection between the printer and the computer.
This could be because of a duff USB cable or something pulling on (and damaging) the connections. However I've also heard of this behaviour when using the SSC utility in an attempt to reset the waste ink counter which I'm guessing is what you're trying to do.
If you are based in the USA I'd recommend filling out the form for this utility: http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/InkPadsForm.jsp
It does invalidate your warranty but the R220 is that old that you won't have anyway.
If that doesn't work then you could try looking for an adjustment utility but be warned they are a lot more complex and it's easy to bork your printer if you're now careful. Keywords: "eserviceinfo r220 adjustment utility"
Check for obstructions (ie tiny pieces of paper and other foreign objects)
Clear the obstructions.
press the paper button
Turn it off then do the self test and check if the printer will printer without using computer
self test (press and hold the paper button and press and release the power button, if you can see the green light is flashing release your hold on the paper button. By the way make sure there is paper on the printer)
If it prints good then you need to check the settings on your computer.
The ink cartridge is probably not inserted correctly. Unplug the
printer and manually move the carriage to a location where you can take the ink
cartridge out. Remove it and reinsert it, making sure that it is fully located, before
applying the power. Make sure that there is nothing blocking the carriage movement, such as
some remnant of paper.
The printer may have an internal error or a hardware issue already. Ink pads full usually indicates if all lights are flashing and an error msg would pop up in your computer screen "parts inside..."
Here's what you may want to try. Just turn off the printer. Checked for obstructions or any foreign objects inside the printer. Try to check from inside the printer where the ink cart holder is, from where you load the paper and from where the paper comes out.
