SOURCE: Ink & Paper blink red at the same time

I managed to solve the problem, thanks to this fantastic freeware tool: http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml The problem has to do with the porous inkpads which are expected to overflow after a fixed number of nozzle cleaning cycles. However the problem is a software, not a hardware one. This great tool resets countes as well as ink cartridge chips. Thank you very much FixYa all the same for trying. Too bad there are some lunatics who post unrelated topics to this forum. Kind regards, PM

SOURCE: Epson Stylus C45 not printing

common issue, the printer will still shoot blanks even if you try another ink or do several head cleanings.

i got a lot of them with that problem, but since epson prints beautiful photos, i don't mind exchanges or getting a new one.

It sounds like your printer has reached what is often called the "service required" stage...

To solve this you need to handle two things.

1. Get the printer protection counter (or waste-ink as it's sometimes called) reset.

2. Replace the waste ink pads OR redirect your waste ink flow to an external tank

It's important to note that Epson will encourage you to do a waste pad replacement through one of their service centers, but if you're out of warranty this will cost a significant amount of money (approx: $100 - 200)


To solve these as a DIY you can do the following:

1. Resetting the counter...
Get a resetter, either the SSC utility (google: epson SSC utility) or the IPR utility that Epson have now made available via their website here

The latter is only available to North American printer owners so the SSC is a safer bet.


2. Redirecting waste ink to an external container.
This is something I'd heartily recommend instead of trying to change the waste pads yourself... It's simple enough to do and a little googling using keywords "Epson R2400 waste ink tank" should get you all the info you need.

There are simple kits available that offer everything you need or you can easily go for a DIY with bits you have to hand.


Hope that helps...

Ink light and paper light keep flashing alternately on my epson l110, how can i fix this ?


It may be a paper jam error. I find when you use an old or rough page in your printer, it don't properly go to its way and cause to displace a sensor that is situated at under the Head carriage of this printer which can be seen in following pictures.
Solution: check if this problem is occurred after paper jam then check the sensor is on its proper place or not if not then open the printer upper cover, open the lock of carriage rod from both sides. Set the sensor at its proper place and then check it.

My epson me 340 ink absorber is full...please help!


take out all the cartridges and the papers..
unplugg the power cable from the printer..
manually slide the carriage from left to right and vice versa and roll the rollers in upward direction from the back after opening the back door..
if doesnt slide or roll..press & hold the power button for 60 seconds and then try again..
clean the inner area of the cartridge slot and the copper contacts of the cartridge with a soft lint-free cloth..
close the back door...
dont put the cartridges..
connect the power cable and power on the printer...
Lights will blink..
Insert one cartridge in the respective slot and close the cartridge door and check if any light blinks..
then remove the cartridge and insert another one and check the same thing..
If light blinks..it will mean the respective cartridge is not good and replace it--

Epson R2400 paper and ink lights blinking red. Ink waste pad replaced and counter reset to 0. Lights still blinking red. Close inspection for any loose objects in printer but none found. Please advise....


Try to turn on your printer without the ink cartridges. When the printer starts and ask for the cartridges, put them back in.

(To remove the cartridges turn on the printer, watch the print head carriage move, when it is at the center quickly unplug the power cable, move the carriage by hand to a position where you can remove the cartridges, after removing the cartridges push the carriage to the right where it should be parked.)

R 340 cartridges have remaining ink but printer


just go to the process of ink cartridge replacement without actually putting in new ink cartridges, sometimes printers make read errors, just make sure ink cartridges are placed properly to position.
