Question about Epson Stylus Photo 1410 Series
Both 2 LED's (the ink and paper jam indicator lights) blinking alternatively and even after following the steps towards resolving the problem still the cartridges cannot move
This is a common problem with inkjets and is basically that the waste pads have reached a point the printer considers they need replacing.
You haven't specified which printer you have so it's difficult to be more specific as to your options but you can look up more on the problem here:
Bear in mind that's a commercial site (mine) but the information available is still useful in determining what options are available.
If your printer is one of the newest models (released in the last 9 - 12 months) then chances are it may have a drop out waste pad holder. Older models tend to have static pads that an external waste kit is an easier solution.
One thing to note... the error itself is based on an arbitrary algorithm in the printer firmware that's based on number of cartridge changes, head cleans and prints with an adjustment for time passed. Resetting it requires software (again the link above will help with what's available) but regardless of whether you deal with the physical waste ink or not the waste counter will not change until you reset it.
That should help at least explain what the problem is... if you want to provide more detail on your specific model I can be more detailed in terms of relevant information.

first of all,double check all the cartridges have been installed correctly.Press the On button to turn on the Epson Stylus CX, or (if already on) press the Setup button.
Select Maintenance and press OK.
Select Change Ink Cartridge and press OK.
Open the cartridge cover,Press down all the ink cartridges until they click into place to make sure they are properly seated.
Close the ink cartridge cover and press it until it clicks into place.Press OK to begin charging the ink. This takes about 2 minutes.
You see a message on the display screen when ink charging is finished
PLEASE NOTE; With the Epson Stylus CX series printers, when you change one ink cartridge, all of the ink cartridges need to be replaced with new ones.
For whatever reason, Epson has it setup so the printer will only operate with each ink cartridge starting at the same amount.So when one cartridge is replaced, all of the cartridges need to be replaced.
