Question about Epson Stylus C44UX InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I've got an epson stylus c44ux printer. It recently had a paper jam and now the red light is on constantly. There seems to be no way to reset it. I've replaced both ink cartridges, cleared all paper from inside the printer (there's definitely nothing left) and generally driven myself mad trying to fix it. Having looked on the web, it seems that other people have had an identical post-jam problem and found no solutions. Any help greatly apprecieted.

You may try to do the following:

1. Turn the printer off and unplug it from the power source.
2. Remove any obstruction or any foreign material inside.
3. Check if the inks are clicked into place on their correct slot and and cartridge cover is closed properly.
4. Turn the printer on.

If same issue persists, it might be a hardware failure. Or you might want to contact Epson for further assistance and/or troubleshooting for that matter.

* RED paper light is On- If the CD/DVD try guide is open, close the CD/DVD tray guide, load paper, then press the paper button. Your paper ran out or multiple sheets loaded at the same time . Load paper and press the paper butoon to resume printing.
* RED paper light flashes- Paper is jammed in the printer. Press the paper button to eject the jammed paper. If the light is still flashing , open the cover and remove all paper, including any jammed or torn pieces. Then reload paper and press the paper button to continue printing.
* RED Ink Light Flashes - One or more cartridges are low on ink. Check the message that appears on your screen to determine which cartridge is low, or follow the instructions in " Checking the Ink Supply". Make sure you have a replacement cartridge.
* RED Ink Light is ON- One or more cartridges are out of ink or not installed. If you have just installed a new cartridge, it may be incomaptible with the printer or incorrectly installed. Reinstall it or replace it with the correct cartridge
* RED Ink and RED paper lights flash alternately- The CD/DVD tray guide was left open when you turned on the printer or when printing on paper. Just simply close it/
* Green Power Light is Off; RED paperand RED Ink Lights flashing- Paper may be blocking movement of the print head. Turn off the printer, then open the cover and remove any jammed paper or other foreign objects. Turn the printer back on again. Or it may have an internal error. Turn off the printer, wait a few seconds, then turn it on again.

Red light constantly on


First, disconnect your printer from the power supply socket(not your pc) then after a few minutes, reconnect and see if the printer has reset and back to normal.

Should this fail, uninstall and then reinstall your printer.

Please send feedback if this works thank you.

If the green light and the red light is on (neither of them blinking), this means either you have an empty or faulty ink cartridge, or you have a paper jam. Replace both cartridges; is the problem solved? If not, make sure there are no shreds of paper jammed in the paper feed path anywhere. No? Then you need to get a technician to look at it. However, if you want to try dismantling the printer yourself to see if you can find the reason for the jam, report back and I can provide further information.

Epson Stylus C$$ Plus suspect Print-head problem Hi, I have a problem with my Epson Stylus C44 Plus. It has been out of use for over a year now and I recently bought a new set of cartridges. I installed the cartridges and carried out a head alignment, followed by a nozzle check. All colours apart from the blue colour printed correctly so I carried out a head cleaning test. This was done a few times and I even carried out a deep clean but with no results (apart from emptying the black cartridge in the process!). I assume that it could be a problem with either the print-head being clogged and/or the waste tank or sponge being clogged. Having read through this forum I think I will need to strip the printer down and give it a good clean through. One additional thing I did notice however is that the spring holding the waste tank and sponge must have become dislodged somehow, as the print-head makes a horrendous knocking noise whenever it moves to the right of the printer and it seems it is not aligning with something correctly. I moved the printer and noticed a spring had fallen out of it, after reading some posts here I assume that the spring holds this "mechanism" in place so the print-head aligns with it correctly. I keep thinking of binning it and getting a new printer but have just got 12 new carts off EBay, hence trying to solve the problem. I'm not after expert prints, just something cheap and cheerful that my eldest can use when he starts secondary school in September. Thanks in advance for any help, assistance or guidance. Paul
