Re: Red & Green led is blinking continiously after...
The Waste Ink Pads are deemed to be saturated and should be replaced. You can overcome this problem temporarily bu using the SSC utility - download from
and reset the Protection Counter. However, remember that eventually ink will overflow from the waste ink area and make a dreadful mess, so you must change the waste ink pads before this happens. This requires the disassembly of the printer. A copy of the service manual is available from a number of sellers - just Google "Epson C46 Service Manual.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

This is general error of the printer. When you have to change the new mother board you should be initialized it then it can be ready mode. When you try to initialization you need printer printer adjustment program. You can batter find out from google & write down EPSON Stylus R230 Printer Adjustment program or ink reseat program.
Flashing alternately mean waste pad full. Reset using SSC utility or Adjusment program/resetter. But, you must replace cartridge before. Turn off printer, unlock carriage lock (left side of carriage at parking position). Move carriage by hand to replacement position. Replace ink tank. Reset using the resetter.
6A00 indicates a problem with the carriage lifting mechanism. Simply put there is beam kind of thing that the cartridge carriage assembly on which the print head rides on and something on it is obstructing the carriage assembly. The fix? Open the printhead cover and turn on the printer. You will see that the carriage arm is extended and tries to move back to the initial printing position but it can't. Just give it a little helping hand and bingo! The print head moves to the correct position. You will then have to clean up whatever is blocking its path. Usual culprits being ink, paperclips, tiny bits of popcorn(or anything else you prefer eating while printing!:)
You have a cartridge refill
The fuse is 250mA (250 volt but this is not critical) go and 315mA. The fuse is 3/4" inch long (20 mm) round glass with metal ends. The electrical contacts are not in the cartridge they are inside the printer. There is a plastic fuse holder on the cartridge, even the starter cartridge. If you face the cartridge with the green roller horizontal and down, the fuse holder will be on the right side just above the phillips screw and in front of the white gear you can see inside the cartridge. The fuse installs horizontally, (in line with the green roller). You just simply pop it into the holder. (I wish I knew how to post a photo, it's really easy when you figure it out.) This will stop the annoying flashing red LED and your system tray will say the cartridge is full. Good luck!!!
If you´re pressing the ink button and the carriage still does not moves is cause the level of the ink is low, but it does not finished yet. You must use the printer more, then the red light will stop to blink and hold on, then you´ll be able to change the cartridge.
