Please check if there are any foreign objects inside the printer. And unplug it from the computer and test if you can print just using the printer itself without using the computer.
Make sure there is paper loaded on the printer and the printer is OFF.
Hold down the paper button and press and release the power on switch, if you can see flashing green light release the paper button. Just wait till it feeds on paper. If it feeds on paper and prited on a pattern it means the printer is working fine, but if not you have to call your manufacturer of your printer.

Stylus C84 ''Parts of your printer have reached the end of their useful life...'' Both the ink out & paper jam red lights are flashing and the printer (green) light will not come on. It says refer to...


Yes, the printer can be fixed, but you'll pay $50 to $100 to a qualified technician, i.e., a _bad_ investment, when a new printer is in that same price-range.

Do some "research", to find which new EPSON printer will take the same print-cartridges that you just have purchased. Or, try to sell those cartridges on 'www.UsedEveryWhere.com', or donate them to a local non-profit agency.

Red lights flashing alternately


You can go to this link from Epson:

http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/erscripts/start_er.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes&oid=23953

This will allow you to troubleshoot the flashing lights. On your first questions click the none of the above.

It will then ask questions concerning your power light and so on.

Hope that helps you.

I just replaced all 4 ink cartridges on my epson stylus c84 printer. The 2 left buttons on the printer are flashing and it will not print. I have tried turning it off and then on but it still won't print....


See the on-line handbook

http://support.epson-europe.com/onlineguides/en/sc84/index.htm

and look in Problem Solver, Diagnosing the Problem, Error indicators. If the two lights are flashing together, you have a paper jam. If this is the case, you should be able to pull the paper out from the front or top. If the lights are flashing together, and you can't see any paper jamming the printer, post a new comment to this effect for more help.

If the lights are flashing alternately (Unknown printer error), it usually means the Waste Ink Pads in your printer are saturated with ink and the waste ink "protection" counter has exceeded its limit. You can restore your printer to a working condition immediately by using the SSC utility - download from

http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml

and use it to reset the Protection Counter. This will stop the lights flashing and restore normal operation. However, remember that eventually ink will overflow from the waste ink area and make a dreadful mess, so you should change the waste ink pads before this happens. This requires the disassembly of the printer.

If you decide to have a go at replacing the ink pads yourself, report back with a new comment and I will provide further help.

Alternating red lights, carriage does not transport


Please go to my website http://www.the-inkstore.co.uk . I have the latest version of SSC Service Utility to download directly onto your computer and instructions on how to use it, what to click on etc etc. Click any of the Epson links if you can't find it, everything you need to know will be there, including printer Firmware resetting which sorts out a multitude of problems.

The 'maintenance required' problem with Epson printers has absolutely nothing to do with which cartridges you are using, it is a built in page counter in your printer firmware, which has a different maximum amount for each Epson model. Don't listen to old wives tales and heresay, we are the experts and it's an Epson scam to cause a lot of people to pay for maintenance or throw their printers away.
I haven't found a model that can't be reset with the latest version of SSC Serve or the manual reset on my site.

For Epson RX500 users there is also a manual reset on my site, as the SSC Serve software won't do it for you.
When using the program & choosing your printer from the list, it may have a weird name with 'x' in the model number, this is because some configurations are for many models in a series. For example, the C46 will be listed as C4x as it is for the C42, C44 & C46 models.

I hope this helps all Epson users to overcome the Epson scam of page counting and locking out until you pay their dealers money for maintenance.

If you like what I've done for Epson users, please show your appreciation by spreading the word and perhaps buying your ink from my site.

Happy trouble free printing

Epson stylus 880 printer


"Turn the printer on while holding down both the ink and paper buttons. When the paper light flashes release both buttons", then hold down the ink button for approx. half a minute until the printer lights flash again then release it. That resets the printer.”
