I just had the same problem. Try opening the top flap on the printer and see if you can click the lid down on the ink cartridge box more firmly (until it clicks) - i had to force the cartridges to the left slightly to do this, although I'm not sure if thats neccessary. Then i pushed the cartidge box back to the right where it was before. The 2 red lights still flashed for me, but when i turned the printer off and on again it worked just fine. I hope this helps.

Epson D88 will not print, both red lights flash, message remove obstruction switch off and on. No change still 2 redlights flashing


The Lights can flash on an error and also iff the INK levels are down. You must check the ink levels and try to do a reset with printer software reinstalled.
Remvoe pinter from the PC, unistall and then reinstall to see if the printer shows the INK level exactly. If not replace INK cartridges to confirm.

Sad to hear that mate. I've still got mine and it works like a dream. I can leave it for years without printing anything and after a few head cleans it still prints like new.

Try and get another one because its that good and replacement ink costs

I have an Epson D88 Inkjet Printer which is a couple of years old. Both the ink and the paper lights or flashing. The manual recommends taking to the dealer but it is not worth it. Any tips on a quick fix?


Could it be you're out of ink and paper simultaneously? But is it even worth buying more ink to find out if this is the cure? If so, I'd try generic ink cartridges to minimize the cost of the experiment. On the other hand, you could probably replace the printer, with new ink cartridges for not much more than the cost of ink for your old printer. They're made to be throwaway, unfortunately.

Epson d88 printer just floods the paper with ink


Sounds a lot like you have an ink pressure issue and at a guess you are using a CIS (Continuous Ink Supply) system.

I would refer back to the documentation that came with your printer and make sure that you are not overpressuring the printhead with the ink reservoirs set too high or some part of the priming process has been missed.

More information about your printers setup would definitely help ID more specific issues that could be causing this.

Flash feed paper & ink light my epson r1800 printer


Do you mean that the paper light flashes at the same time as the ink light or do they flash alternately (ie: paper on, ink off -> paper off, ink on)?

If so the waste ink pads are full and you need to do the following:

1. Reset the waste ink counter:
Grab the tool linked from the wasteink.co.uk site (see bottom).

2. Redirect your waste ink into an external tank OR replace your waste ink pads.. (external tank is easier).

Instructions for the R1800 are available from this site



If the lights are doing something different, please post again with detailed information about how they flash and I can what else it might mean.

Hope that helps.

MY EPSON D88 PRINTER HAS 2 FLASHING LIGHTS


This is usually caused by a problem with the chip(s) on the new cartridge.

Check that the chips are clean, and are correctly installed on the cartridge(s) (some can be knocked out of alignment and thus not connect properly).

Also check for any damage to the tiny wires in the printhead where the cartridge sits.. These can also become soiled with fluff, etc... Be VERY careful if you try to clean these as they are very delicate and if broken off you will have a broken printer.

Last thing is of course to check you have the correct cartridges... A common one with the D88 is to have C86 cartridges which are not compatible at all (different' chips!).

Hope that helps.

I have brought a replacement cartridge (black) for the Epson D92 stylus printer I folowed the usuel steps and sucsesfully printed 4 or 5 b&w pages now the printer does not seem to except the cartridge...


This may or may not work on your model

"Press and hold the paper feed, paper switch and the power switch.

Once the power light and paper light flashes twice and the other lights are flashing release the paper feed and paper switch "and then press the paper feed switch".

The power, paper and ink lights will flash twice. At this point the protection counter has been reset."

The Protection Counter referred to above prevents you from printing once the printed pages counter reaches a predetermined threshold.

If this doesn't work, let me know.

Nothing comes out when I print


Epson 777 will not print. No paper jam. Power light flashing; red error light on steady. Paper does not feed; if paper supply is placed deeper in feed, entire paper supply (about 12 sheets) feeds thru as one sheet normally would , without printing.
