Re: MY Epson Stylus C60 wont print

This means that your printer is trying to print from the wrong serial port connection, as your printer should be connected via a USB cable. Go to start>control panel>printers and faxes. Double click the printer and faxes icon and your Epson printer icon should be there and set as default with a tick next to it; right click on the icon>properties and then at the top of the next window, click on the tab that says ports and a list of ports will be there and the one that should be ticked should be USB001, and not LPT1 as it will be show, press ok and close windows and restart the pc.

Green light flashing Red light on

with regards to the status of the lights., its either the cartridges that you installed is not recognized by the printer's print head or cartridges are defective.
try these steps:
if all the inks are new take them out and get an eraser and rub the small chip gently so as to clean the contacts of the chip ( don't touch it with your finger ) reinsert the cartridges in the printer and allow it to charge.

It will not print.

Hi Greenhorn, Your info is slightly conflicting - I think. As I remember the C60 has just 2 LED's: 1 - Green for Power 2 - Red for Error The third button - Cartridge exchange - has no LED Now it is a while since I looked at a C60 and my brain leaks like a sieve, but that's the way I remember it and feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. The error codes I remember are: Printer status - Indicators - Priority Power - Error Power ON condition On - Ink sequence Blink - Ink Cartridge change mode Blink - Data processing Blink - Paper Out *1 - On Paper jam condition *1 - On Ink end (Black) *1 - On -> Blink Ink level low (Black) - Blink-> Blink Ink end (Color) *1 - On -> Blink2 Ink level low (Color) - Blink-> Blink2 Ink end (Black and Color) - On -> On No Ink Cartridge (Black or Color) *1 - On Maintenance request (Ink Overflow Countererror) *1 Alt Blink Alt Blink Fatal error *1 Off On Special setting Blink2 Blink2
