Question about Epson Stylus Photo 820 InkJet Printer
I have a rather vintage printer - Epson Stylus Photo 820. I am receiving s trouble code of both red and green lights flashing alternately. Can anyone tell me how to clear this?
The Waste Ink Pads in your printer are saturated with ink and the waste ink counter has exceeded its limit. The Waste Ink Pads should be replaced as soon as possible. You can overcome this problem temporarily by using the SSC utility - download from
and reset the Protection Counter. This will stop the lights flashing and restore normal operation. 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. If you want to have a go at doing this yourself, the 820 service manual can be downloaded from here:
