Question about Epson Stylus C88 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Printer has red lights permanently on when powered up

I have an epsom stylus colour 680 - old yes but not over used! I tried printing a very large colourful document, however the pages jammed and the two red lights began flashing. I do know you shouldn't switch the power off when the lights are flashing, but after removing all signs of the jammed paper, the only solution I thought of (as with most electronic goods) was to switch off and reset. (I know, I was wrong!) However many times I've disconnected the power and left it, every time I switch it back on, it the red lights remain on and permanently fixed now, not flashing. What do I do please, is there a reset button?

If they were initially flashing fast there is a fatal error and a repair is needed, but always try a re install first. Go to printers and faxes folder and go to your Epson C88 printer icon, right click on it and select cancel all documents or prints, then select uninstall, to remove the printer. Uninstall driver from add/remove programmes, turn off and remove printer from usb port and restart pc. Install the drivers and software again from the cdrom and when prompted to connect printer, switch it on but connect to a different usb port if possible and allow windows to detect and install. If the lights are still steady red or flashing fast, then the printer is faulty.

Middle of three buttons permanently on red


Did you mean ink light permanently on? See status monitor. Is all chip (ink tank) recognized? Or may be some chip reach "ink out". Try to use another ink tank (new). If you wish to refill used ink tank, you must reset ink counter first.

Green and red light on : ink out error / chip doesn't recognized. If u use SSC, and said "Coomuniaction error", it's normal. Replace ink tank, or use CISS chip.

"Change cartridge" light stay's on after replacement


What exactly does the status monitor say? Your printer may have a problem with the counter or if the machine simply does not see the cart there could be an issue with the print head or the main board.
