Re: ink and paper light are blinking and unable to access...
Had the same problem. (this is a work around)
Took alot of work but I fixed it.
Frist thing you need to know that error means your ink waste pad is
full. Its a $75.00 to replace but there is a work around it.
You will need this free app. SSC service utitlty.
http://inkjetprinterhelp.us/epsonSSC.html Its a great app.
Instrusctions are on the website there.
You will also have to Open the access panel on the rear of the printer (remove screw) and
look inside carefullly with a flashlight. You will see a tube (down and
to your left) coming from the cleaning pump and it will have an open
end on it. This is the tube that delivers ink to the waste pad.
Use a piece of coat hanger wire or equivalent, and fish out this
piece of tube. Bring it to the outside of the printer, thru the access
Find yourself a suitable container
(Tupperware or a plastic cup or jar) that is not too tall. Put the tube
into this container and secure the tube and container so they won’t
come apart or lose connection if the printer is moved.
If you wish you can make a hole or notch in the access panel cover so it can be replaced.

Open the back and front door and see the properly a small piece of paper make a error of paper jam, after that move your cartridge panel by hand, and check the cartridge fix properly, if cartridge not fix properly fix the cartridge and try again to print.
I managed to find an excellent resource that should help you solve your problem.
Try the suggestions given here
i would start with "holding both paper and ink buttons then powering on untill the paper light flashes and then holding the ink button for 10 secs"
Let me know if this helped.
Please remove the ink cartridges, unplug the power cord. You may also remove the paper from the paper tray. Now, try inserting the cartridge as well.. after about 20 seconds, plug in the power..
put in the paper, and ensure that you have inserted the paper properly. Then insert the ink cartridge. This should resolve the problem.
But if the light is still blinking , try by replacing the ink cartridge.
Hi there This is a Carriage error take a good look at the carriage that the inks are in and see if they are sitting ok and also do the next incise there some thing there stopping it from moving. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.
First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.
If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there. And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it. Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.
