Print Cartridge Status
The Print Cartridge Status Light flashes when one
or both of your print cartridges are low on ink,
improperly installed, or malfunctioning. It will
also flash if you are trying to use the wrong print
cartridge type. If the problem is low ink, the light
will stop flashing when you open the top cover.
For any other print cartridge-related problem, the
Print Cartridge Status Light will continue to flash.
To check the status of your print cartridges, open
the printer's top cover. The yellow arrow on the
print cartridge cradle aligns with one of five Print
Cartridge Status icons.
After few head cleaning, ink counter running low, so ink ligh (red) flashing. Then ink counter runing out, so the light stayed on. After replacing both of ink, red light stayed on, because the compatible ink (chip) not recognized by printer. Check epson status monitor. Use original ink or refill and reset ink level counter.
If you need to replace an ink cartridge in your printer, please follow the
To confirm which ink cartridge requires replacement,
please use the printer's control panel (there is a black ink out indicator, as
well as a color ink out indicator ), or the Status Monitor in your computer.
Red light flashing - Low ink Red light solid - Out of ink
Open the printer cover and press the INK (Cleaning) button for 3 seconds. The
print head moves to the center and the lights flash. 2. Lift up the ink
cartridge clamp. The cartridge rises up from its holder. 3. Remove the
cartridge and dispose of it carefully. If ink gets on your hands, wash them with
soap and water. If ink gets in your eyes, flush them immediately with water.
4. Unpack the new ink cartridge and remove the yellow tape. You must remove
the yellow tape from the top of the cartridge. Do not remove the clear seal
underneath the cartridge. Do not touch the green circuit board on the back of
the cartridge, or you may inhibit normal operation and printing. 5. Tilt the
new cartridge toward you slightly as you insert it. Lower the cartridge so that
the tabs rest on the hooks. Do not place the cartridge tabs under the hooks.
6. Press down firmly on the ink cartridge clamp until it snaps in place.
7. If you need to replace the other ink cartridge, repeat steps 2 through 6
before continuing with step 8 (to move printhead over to color (if black was
replaced first) press the cleaning button once). 8. Press the INK (Cleaning)
button once, and close the printer cover. The printer begins charging the ink
delivery system. 9. Wait until ink charging is finished (the power light
stops flashing and the red error light goes out).
I realised that I had to replace both the ink cartridges even though I only wanted to replace the black for it to work. Once I replaced both the black and colour cartridge the red light went off. Thanks
Try lifting up the cover. If the ink level is low in a print cartridge, the Print Cartridge Status light stops flashing. If the problem is not related to low ink, the light continues to flash after the cover is opened. It might be that the new cartridge is defective. Check the connections and see if there isn't anything keeping it from making contact.
My HL-5240 did the same thing, Here is what I found:
Look at the back of the printer. Pull down the back cover. Look to the right and the left of the exposed internals of the printer and there should be another handle/knob you can pull down. Pull these both down simultaneously and check to make sure there isn't a piece of paper in there! This was a shock to me! My office printer was held up for days until I found this hidden door in the back! I felt like an idiot that it was from a stupid paper jam!
