It;s general error or fatal error. Find the Adjusment Program for R1900, then Click Printer Information Check. You will find the latest fatal Error code. You can figure the actual error of your printer.

SOURCE: Both Ink & Paper lights flashing!

Hi JayBirde Do the lights flash Together (not alternate) and is it a quick flash (0.1 second on 0.1 second off)? If so, check the Status Monitor for a message. If it says Fatal Error or General Error, then you have a task on your hands! If the lights flash alternate (0.5 second on 0.5 second off) then this indicates a maintenence error and the status monitor should say parts inside your printer have reached the end of their life - or something similar. This much easier to fix with an R220 Rescue Kit from www.TheServiceManualShop.com - use their search to look for R220 Rescue. If you can't find it, just drop them a line and they will create one for you. Delivery is via instant download so no waiting around to get your machine fixed. If you have a general or Fatal error it means the printers head can not move using the norm,al amount of force - i.e. something is in the way. You can check a few things: Ensure their is nothing in the path of the print head - paper, foam from the pad, head lock not retracting, toy soldier on manouvers in the mechanism etc Chech the encoder strip ( a grey-ish looking plastic strip, near the drive belt for the print head) is clean and attached. Check the lid for the ink cart cover is full closed.

I have the Epson R1900 and I did a nozzle check twice and head cleaning twice. I am unable to check my supply levels. I am getting a message saying to only use genuine Epson Ink but that is what it


More than a little unusual that the printer is reporting non-OEM cartridges if those are the ones loaded unless your cartridge supplier has obtained their stock from another sales zone, in which case it may be that the printer is not recognising them as being valid.

Presumably, given the model you are getting the warning on your computer so you can disable this status monitor by doing the following:

- Open Printers & Faxes (or the equivalent for your operating system
- Locate your R1900 printer in the list
- Right click and select "Printing Preferences" (or "Properties" followed by "Printing Preferences")
- Click the "Maintenance" tab
- Click on the button marked "Speed & Progress"
- Tick the box marked "Disable status monitor 3.0" (The exact line may differ)
- Click Apply then OK

This should disable the annoying "Use genuine" warnings although it will also disable your ink monitoring capabilities via software.


I would still contact your supplier and/or Epson to complain about the problem and ask for replacement cartridges for the ones most recently changed as obviously this is something that should be covered under the cartridge warranty.

Hope that helps.

I need step by step instructions showing how to change an ink cartridge on and Epson NX110 printer


If the printer is out of ink in one or more cartridges (the ink light is steady), then with the printer on, lift the scanner unit and use the support to prop it up. Press the Stop button and the (first) empty cartridge will line up with the No Ink symbol on the printer. Press Stop again and the next empty cartridge will be moved to this symbol. Continue to press Stop until the cartridge carrier moves to the ink replacement position (depends on how many cartridges are empty). This is on the right side of the printer. Wait for the cartridge carrier to stop moving. Do not touch the white cable while changing the ink.

Next remove the first ink cartridge by pressing the two tabs towards the center of cartridge and pulling it straight up. (One tab is close to you and the other is closest to the printer.) Take your new cartridge for the slot and shake it four or five times. Then remove the cartridge from the package. Do not touch the green chip. Remove the yellow tape from the bottom of the cartridge. Next rotate the cartridge so that the nozzle is down and facing towards the inside of the printer. Then push it straight down into the slot until it snaps into place. Repeat these steps for the rest of the empty cartridges.

Once all of the empty cartridges have been replaced, lift the scanner unit and push the support to fold it. Close the scanner unit. Press Stop to start charging the ink system. Wait until the Power light stops flashing and remains on before turning off the printer or sending a print job to the unit.

If the Ink light continues to flash, open the scanner unit and press Stop. Press down on the cartridges to make sure that they are completely seated in the cartridge carrier.

If the ink out light is flashing or not lit, you need to use the Epson Utility to change the ink. This is part of the full software from Epson. For Windows right click on the printer icon in the taskbar (bottom right of the screen). Then select Printer Settings and click on the Maintenance tab. For a Mac, open the Applications folder and open Epson Printer Utility 3. Select your printer (if you have several Epson printers listed). Then click OK. (You will need to launch the utility before you open the scanner unit.)

The documentation for the Epson NX110 is available here: http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?BV_SessionID=@@@@1663277658.1305218830@@@@&BV_EngineID=cceeadfdielfldicfngcfkmdhjidfmh.0&cookies=no&infoType=Doc&oid=128284&prodoid=63084353 .

I hope this helps.

How to I change ink on epson printer NX127 I cannot get the cartage out Can you show me the picture of the cartage ink holder with the lid up


First make sure the printer is on, then open the printer cover and the cartridge cover. Then press the Stop button. Assuming the printer has identified a cartridge with low ink, that cartridge will be moved to the replacement position; then the power light will flash. Squeeze the tabs on the ends of the cartridge together and lift it up. Unpack the new cartridge and remove the tape carefully. Then press the new cartridge into place until it clicks.

If more than one cartridge has low ink, the leftmost one will be in the replacement position when the cartridge carrier stops moving. Press Stop again to advance the carrier to put the next low cartridge into the replacement position. Then press Stop again to have the printer move the cartridges to the home position and charge the print head. When the lights go out or stop flashing, close the cartridge cover and the printer cover.

If the cartridges aren't low on ink, then use the Epson printer utility (under the Maintenance tab) to start the process.

For pictures of the Epson printer during ink replacement see: http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?BV_SessionID=@@@@1558177770.1297529968@@@@&BV_EngineID=ccdcademkhmjkgicfngcfkmdhjidfmh.0&cookies=no&infoType=FAQ&oid=150187&prodoid=63088089&foid=157388 .

How do i install new cartridges into my tx printer first time user never changed before


With the printer on but not busy (flashing light), open the scanner unit. (Lift the scanner until the bracket on the right locks.)

If the cartridges are completely expended:

Press the Stop button on the printer, the print head should move to line the expended cartridge with the empty ink mark. Press Stop again and the next empty cartridge should line up with the mark. Continue to press Stop until the print head moves to the cartridge replacement location (after noting which cartridges need to be replaced).

One cartridge at a time, shake the new cartridge 5 times before opening the package.

Remove the new cartridge from the packaging and remove the yellow tape from the cartridge. Be careful not to damage the hooks on the side of the cartridge and do not touch the green IC chip. Leave the transparent seal in place.

Squeeze the tab at the back of the cartridge you want to replace and then lift the cartridge up. Then put the new cartridge straight into that slot and press down until it clicks.

Repeat this for all empty cartridges. Then close the scanner unit and press Stop. Wait until the light stops flashing and the empty ink error light goes out. The unit will charge the ink system while the light is flashing.

If the empty ink remains flashing or is on with the print head in the home position, then a cartridge may not be properly inserted. Press Stop and then push down on the cartridges. See http://support2.epson.net/manuals/english/spc/stylustx100tx101/guide/html/ink_4.htm for pictures and images.

If the ink isn't expended, use the Ink Replacement utility in the Epson software. For Windows, this is part of Printing Preferences in the Maintenance tab. Open the Devices and Printers (slightly different name in older versions of Windows) control panel. Then right click on the printer and choose Printing Preferences.

I hope this helps.

How do you load new printer cartriges


To replace an ink cartridge using the fonth.gif ink button, follow the steps below.
1. Make sure that the printer is on. The fontp.gif power light should be on, but not flashing.
2. Lower the output tray, then open the printer cover.
3. Press the fonth.gif ink button. The print head moves to the ink cartridge replacement position, the fontp.gif power light begins to flash, and the fonth.gif ink out light corresponding to the ink cartridge that needs to be replaced begins to flash or remains on.
4. Open the cartridge cover. Pinch the sides of the ink cartridge that you want to replace. Lift the cartridge out of the printer and dispose of it properly. Do not take the used cartridge apart or try to refill it.
5.Remove the new ink cartridge from its protective bag. Place the ink cartridge vertically into the cartridge holder. Then, push the ink cartridge down until it clicks into place. Do not apply excessive force to the cartridge.
6. When you are finished replacing the cartridge, close the cartridge cover and the printer cover.
7. Press the fonth.gif ink button. The printer moves the print head and begins charging the ink delivery system. The fonth.gif ink lights start flashing. This process takes about one minute to complete. When the ink charging process is finished, the printer returns the print head to its home position. The fontp.gif power light will stop flashing and remain on, and the fonth.gif ink out light will turn off. The fontp.gif power light will continue to flash while the printer is charging ink. Never turn off the printer while this light is flashing.

Power light is out and the two amber lights are flashing at same time.


Power off and paper and ink flashing alternately:

Parts inside the R1900 Series are at the end of their
service life or an unknown error has occurred. Contact
Epson for help

Power off and the paper and ink flashing fast:

The print head is obstructed by paper or other foreign
material. Turn off the printer, remove any obstructions,
and turn it back on. If the error persists, contact Epson

Good Luck!!!

Based on the lights you are already out of one or more ink cartridge or an ink cartridge is not being recognized/expended.

-You cannot print if any ink cartridge is expended.
-Leave the empty cartridge installed in the printer until you have obtained a replacement.

Once you start the ink cartridge replacement procedure, you must complete all the steps in one session.

1. Open the printer cover and press the INK REPLACEMENT button, located under the printer's cover. The print head moves to the center and the lights flash.

2. Lift up the ink cartridge clamp. The cartridge rises up from its holder.

3. Remove the cartridge and dispose of it carefully. If ink gets on your hands, wash them with soap and water. If ink gets in your eyes, flush them immediately with water.

4. Unpack the new ink cartridge and remove the yellow tape. You must remove the yellow tape from the top of the cartridge. Do not remove the clear seal underneath the cartridge. Do not touch the green circuit board on the back of the cartridge, or you may inhibit normal operation and printing.

5. Tilt the new cartridge toward you slightly as you insert it. Lower the cartridge so that the tabs rest on the hooks. Do not place the cartridge tabs under the hooks.
.
6. Press down firmly on the ink cartridge clamp until it snaps in place.

7. If you need to replace the other ink cartridge, repeat steps 2 through 6 before continuing with step 8.

8. Press the INK REPLACEMENT button and close the printer cover. The printer begins charging the ink delivery system.

9. Wait until ink charging is finished (the power light stops flashing and the red error light goes out).

Changing the ink cartridge in Epson Stylus CX4200


1. Make sure the unit is turned on, and not printing. The POWER light should be on, but not flashing.

2. Lower the OUTPUT tray, and lift the scanner portion to access the ink cartridges.

3. Press and release the INK button. The print heads will move to the left, and the cartridge that needs to be replaced will stop directly beneath the OUT OF INK symbol. Make a note of which cartridge requires replacement.

4. Press and release the INK button again. If more than one ink cartridge is empty, the next cartridge will move under the OUT OF INK symbol. If no other cartridges are out of ink, the print heads will now move to the REPLACEMENT POSITION.

5. Open the CARTRIDGE COVER. Pinch the front and back tabs of the empty cartridge as you lift it out of the unit. Dispose of this cartridge.

6. Before you remove the new cartridge from its package, shake it four or five times.

7. Remove the new cartridge from its package, and lower it into the cartridge holder. Push down gently until the cartridge clicks into place.

8. Repeat steps 5-7 for each cartridge that you need to replace. Close the CARTRIDGE COVER once all of the necessary ink cartridges are replaced.

9. Carefully lower the scanner, until it clicks into place

10. Press and release the INK button.

The ON light flashes and the printer makes noise. Charging takes about 30 seconds. When it's finished, the ON light stops flashing and stays on steady.
Caution: Never turn off the EPSON Stylus printer while the ON light is flashing, unless the Stylus printer hasn't moved or made noise for more than 5 minutes.
