First, disconnect your printer from the power supply socket(not your pc) then after a few minutes, reconnect and see if the printer has reset and back to normal.

Should this fail, uninstall and then reinstall your printer.

Please send feedback if this works thank you.

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.

Ink red light on . which colour is out?


When red ink light flashes - one or more ink cartridges is low. When you print, a message on your screen will tell you which one(s).

When red ink light remains on - one or more ink cartridges is empty. When you try to print, a message on your screen will tell you which one(s).

Furthermore: When following the procedure for installing a new cartridge, if the red ink light was on or flashing, pressing the ink button will cause the carriage to stop with the cartridge that needs replacing under the "ink out mark" (ink droplet with a slash through it).

Ink light of my tx101 keeps blinking


Hello, Amit.

From FixYa, give this a try:

Lift up the scanner bed (top part) of the printer to expose the cartridges.

Push the red triangle button once. Wait for the cartridge carrier to move to the middle. On the housing of the printer (the non-moving part), there is an arrow that will point to the empty cartridge.

Push the red triangle button again to see if the next cartridge is empty. Repeat this step, noting which cartridges are empty, until the cartridge carrier moves to the right. Now you can replace each cartridge that is empty.

After replacing the empty cartridges, push the red triangle button again, and the carrier will begin moving back and forth (cleaning itself). Once it stops, it should be positioned on the far right side.

Lower the scanner bed to "close" the printer. The ink light should go off and you should be able to print.

Hope this helps.

How do I make the cartridge move to change position on Epson C44 Plus


To replace an ink cartridge using the maintenance button, follow these steps. Turn the printer on, the power light should be on and not flashing.
Open the printer cover. Press the maintenance button (ink-drop symbol). The print head moves to the black ink cartridge replacement position first. Press the maintenance button again to switch to the color cartridge replacement position.

Epson c44


If the green light and the red light is on (neither of them blinking), this means either you have an empty or faulty ink cartridge, or you have a paper jam. Replace both cartridges; is the problem solved? If not, make sure there are no shreds of paper jammed in the paper feed path anywhere. No? Then you need to get a technician to look at it. However, if you want to try dismantling the printer yourself to see if you can find the reason for the jam, report back and I can provide further information.

Epson Stylus C$$ Plus suspect Print-head problem Hi, I have a problem with my Epson Stylus C44 Plus. It has been out of use for over a year now and I recently bought a new set of cartridges. I installed the cartridges and carried out a head alignment, followed by a nozzle check. All colours apart from the blue colour printed correctly so I carried out a head cleaning test. This was done a few times and I even carried out a deep clean but with no results (apart from emptying the black cartridge in the process!). I assume that it could be a problem with either the print-head being clogged and/or the waste tank or sponge being clogged. Having read through this forum I think I will need to strip the printer down and give it a good clean through. One additional thing I did notice however is that the spring holding the waste tank and sponge must have become dislodged somehow, as the print-head makes a horrendous knocking noise whenever it moves to the right of the printer and it seems it is not aligning with something correctly. I moved the printer and noticed a spring had fallen out of it, after reading some posts here I assume that the spring holds this "mechanism" in place so the print-head aligns with it correctly. I keep thinking of binning it and getting a new printer but have just got 12 new carts off EBay, hence trying to solve the problem. I'm not after expert prints, just something cheap and cheerful that my eldest can use when he starts secondary school in September. Thanks in advance for any help, assistance or guidance. Paul
