Question about Epson Stylus Photo R200 InkJet Printer

Epson r200 green flashin light

Whenever I turn on my epson r200 and it starts to prime or whatever, it stops a little bit through and refuses to move afterwards. It always stops in the same spot (on the far left side). The green power light then remains flashing slowly. After waiting awhile I press the power button again and the green light begins to flash faster. After this nothing will work. I can't use any of the other two buttons at all. I know this is a printer problem and not a problem with the wire because the priniter reacts in the same way when the USB cord is disconnected. I'm not sure if this will help, but whenever I try to retrieve ink levels from the printer via the control panel, the ink levels are blank. Thank you in advance.

It sounds like the printhead may be "lost" due to a problem with the sensor on the back of the printhead becoming disconnected.

Check for a brown flat piece of plastic with a circuit printed on it that travels round the back of the printhead. It's likely this has become loose from the connector that it normally slots into.

If you push this carefully back into place you may find this fixes the issue.

I'd also recommend checking the thin transparent plastic strip with very thin black lines running vertically across it. If this is soiled or dirty it will cause problems as this is what the printer uses to orientate itself on the print track.


Hope that helps.

Stop the two red lights on my epson r200


Please try this procedure one more time using the instructions below.
  1. Turn the printer off, and disconnect the interface cable.
  2. Turn the printer back on.
  3. If the error lights disappear, turn the printer off and reconnect the interface cable. Turn the printer back on and try printing again.
  4. If the error lights continue, unplug the printer power cord for a few seconds and reconnect it to a different power outlet.
  5. If the printer is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, try plugging it directly into the outlet.
Note: Also check that the ink cartridges and lids are pushed down fully.
If the problem persists, an unknown printer error has occurred. The printer may require service.

Here is how to reset the waste counter for the Epson R200, R210, R300 and R310 printers.
  • Press and hold “Stop”, “Maintenance”, and “Power” buttons for about 10 seconds. A message will come on the screen saying counter is reset and to turn the printer off. The R200 and others don’t have a screen so just wait until the 10 seconds is up.
  • Turn the printer off, unplug the power cord. Wait about 1 minute and power the printer back up. The counter will be reset. That’s all there is to the reset procedure.
