Stopped printing with red flashing light


Hey... Part of the problem may be that your printer believes your waste ink pads are full..However I also suspect you have a problem with your cartridge chips not being recognised, soiled or something else causing the printer to lock up with a general error.

I'd recommend trying to remove the cartridges, check for any foreign objects in the printhead path, check that the printhead has full movement back and forth along the printers width.. oh and don't forget to check the cartridge chips are clean, positioned properly and actually the correct cartridges.


In case that solves that part but you end up with the waste ink issue solution to that bit is one of two options (well three really).

1. Get the printer serviced at an Epson service center (usually quite expensive)

2. Modify your printer to redirect waste ink from the cleaning pump to an external tank and then reset the waste ink counter (considerably cheaper - but then I'm biased :-)).

3. Buy a new printer.


I'm biased on point #3 because I've been developing resources for this approach for the last four years now. Everything you need is available here

I changed to new ink cartridge. Printer has error light on and will not go further.Help!!


Check this one:-

1) With the printer powered off but connected to a power source, press the Power button while pressing and holding the Stop/ Reset button.
2) When the Power LED is lit, press the Stop/Reset button two times while pressing and holding the Power button.
3) When releasing the Power button and the Stop / Reset button (regardless of order), the printer will move into a service mode. (Waiting for menu selection)
4) When the LED lights in green, press the Stop/Reset button 4 times.

The above will get you to Service Mode (and clear the Waste Ink Counter if you wish) and is supposed to work for MP160 also.
Caution if your waste ink pad is full you could overflow if ignored
