    When you say Fake you mean after market cartriges by 3rd party vendors that refile cartriges?

    if may have an Epson cartrige with a chip that has not been reset. There are devices out now on the market to reset the on cartrige chip now which in some cases can be bought at the office supply store that you bought your 'Fake Ink'. The chip is used as a rough counter of how much ink is left in the cartridge. Most other brands of printers that have chips on their cartridges the chip is more of an Identifier and the printer keeps count of how much ink is used.

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Have changed ink catridges but light still flashing

InkJet printers tend to do that. I am guessing the printer has problems reading the information from the cartridge built-in chips.

Try removing each and every cartridge and placing them back in the printer once again.

The above link is for the R220 Inkjet Photo Printer.

It is similar to the R230, I believe. It looks similar.
I seem to recall that the R220 and R230 were related closely. So, if you read over the manual for the R220, you probably will see parallels to the R230 which I could not find specifically listed on the U.S. Epson site.

How to reset ink counter for a epson R230

The page counter cannot be set back to 0.
The ink levels on your computer is automatically checked and displayed through the Status Monitor

If any of the ink cartridges installed in the printer is broken, incompatible with the printer model, or improperly installed, EPSON Status Monitor 3 will not display an accurate calculation for the amount of ink remaining in any of the ink cartridges. Be sure to replace or reinstall any ink cartridge indicated by EPSON Status Monitor 3.

If you are using NON epson ink catridges? This is most likely your problem. I would recommend that you use only Epson products for your Epson printer.

Hope this helps
