If both lights are flashing, 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 use it 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. This is quite straightforward once you know what to do.

If you decide to have a go at replacing the ink pads yourself, post a new comment, and I will provide further help.

The printer cant print it keeps showing "!" or


The blinking exclamation point means that the cover to the printer is not closed all the way. Try opening and closing the cover to get rid of this error. If there is another picture like an ink drop or a sun that is also blinking at the same time then the error can mean something different.

Here is a link to your manual for your printer that includes troubleshooting erorr codes:

check the status of the printer in its driver. the error will be shown there. error 5100 is the most common. error 5100 means the carriage is experiencing difficulty in moving itself.
