Question about Epson Stylus 680 InkJet Color Printer
Printer does not print when switched on, the cartridge tray does not move to the center and the red light and power light keep flashing alternatively.
Have tried using SSC service utility and tried to do a "soft reset" but to no avail.
Also tried to reset the printer by holding all three buttons simultaneously but to no avail
Please suggest a solution
If both lights are flashing alternately, it means the Waste Ink Pads in your printer are saturated with ink and the waste ink ("protection") counter has exceeded its limit. The Waste Ink Pads should be replaced as soon as possible. You can overcome this problem temporarily by using the SSC utilit to reset the Protection Counter. This will stop the lights flashing and restore normal operation.
However, remember that eventually ink will overflow from the waste ink area and make a dreadful mess, so you must change the waste ink pads before this happens. This requires the disassembly of the printer.
If you decide to have a go at replacing the ink pads yourself, report back and I will provide further help.
