Re: Can't print with Epson stylus C67
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 utility - download from http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml and 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. A copy of the service manual is available from a number of sellers - just Google "Epson C44 Service Manual". You will often find them for sale very cheaply on E-Bay. If you decide to have a go at replacing the ink pads yourself, report back and I will provide further help.

if all blink but the power, its a cutter position sensor if all blink at high speed except power, its a fatal error if paper blinks and then the inks blink, alternately, then its a maintenance error, and the pads need replacing as printer needs to be reset.
If you are confident that there are no scraps of paper trapped inside the paper feeder, then you will need to remove the top cover of the printer to carry out a more extensive investigation. My advice is to take it to a technician. However, if you wish to investigate further yourself, repost back with a new comment to this effect and I will provide information to assist in removing the top cover. It is not an overly difficult task if you know what to do.
The symptoms infer that the problem is with the computer (printing from an application) rather than the printer (prints OK when the computer is not involved). The best way out of this is to uninstall the printer (start-control panel-uninstall software-epson software). But before you do this double-click the printer icon in the printer list (start-control panel-printers & faxes) and cancel all print jobs in the list (if there are any). Then uninstall the printer Then reboot the computer. Make sure your printer is connected to the computer BUT TURNED OFF. Then insert your printer installation CD and re-install the printer. Turn on the printer when prompted. All should then be well.
