Why the green light is off but the paper and ink red light flashing nonstop


Can not answer without more information. What brand of printer?
Are the paper/ink lights flashing alternately?

If your answers are, "Epson" and "yes, alternately", then the model number will help. Or, google "epson waste ink pad reset" for how to fix.

Epson Stylus PHOTO R220 red lights keep flashing


I hope this will help you :)
* Green Power light flashes- The printer is receiving a print job, replacing an ink cartridge, charging ink, or cleaning the print head.
* RED paper light is On- If the CD/DVD try guide is open, close the CD/DVD tray guide, load paper, then press the paper button. Your paper ran out or multiple sheets loaded at the same time . Load paper and press the paper butoon to resume printing.
* RED paper light flashes- Paper is jammed in the printer. Press the paper button to eject the jammed paper. If the light is still flashing , open the cover and remove all paper, including any jammed or torn pieces. Then reload paper and press the paper button to continue printing.
* RED Ink Light Flashes - One or more cartridges are low on ink. Check the message that appears on your screen to determine which cartridge is low, or follow the instructions in " Checking the Ink Supply". Make sure you have a replacement cartridge.
* RED Ink Light is ON- One or more cartridges are out of ink or not installed. If you have just installed a new cartridge, it may be incomaptible with the printer or incorrectly installed. Reinstall it or replace it with the correct cartridge
* RED Ink and RED paper lights flash alternately- The CD/DVD tray guide was left open when you turned on the printer or when printing on paper. Just simply close it/
* Green Power Light is Off; RED paperand RED Ink Lights flashing- Paper may be blocking movement of the print head. Turn off the printer, then open the cover and remove any jammed paper or other foreign objects. Turn the printer back on again. Or it may have an internal error. Turn off the printer, wait a few seconds, then turn it on again.

The red and green lights are flashing continously and it won print


The lights continually flashing indicate a paper jam or the printer being out of ink. Check/clear any paper jam and verify the ink cartidge is set correctly.

I replaced the ink cartridges in my long unused Epson R260 and when I turned it on it moves around a bit then makes a loud scraping sound and the right two lights flash red. Turn it off and back on it just...


you may need to software reset your printer, some epson printer has a internal print counter, when you have used up all the allowed print count, the lights will flash red.

I replaced the blue catridge and now both red


If the red lights are flashing simultaneously, it means that there is something blocking the printhead from moving. check if all inks are installed properly and the ink carriage cover is closed tight. If both red lights are flashing alternately,it means that the waste ink pad is full and needs to be replaced. This part is not user replaceable so you need to take in the printer for service.

R200 both red lights flashing


if both red lights are flashing alternately your printer has been locked this is due to full waste ink pads. you need to have them replaced either at your local service centre or do it yourself then you need a scss reset utility to reset your printer you can get a free one of these on the net
If your lights are flashing continuously look to see if you have any outstanding documents in your print queue and delete them

My red lights are both flashing and printer will not responed


Both red lights flashing? One should be for paper jam and the other for low/insufficient ink. I presume this is a deskjet/injet printer. The combination of these two lights flashing usually indicates a more serious issue rather than just low ink or paper jam. It is indicative of incompatibility of ink cartridge. After a while some cartridges just could become incompatible with the machine. All things being equal (i.e. no paper jam issue) a replacement of your ink cartridge will resolve this issue. Just get brand new ink cartridge/cartridges. It is usually ok to replace only the one that has become incompatible. But the issue is you need to troubleshoot to determine. You may not have the resources to do this, so better to replace both or replace one-by-one.
