Do you mean that the paper light flashes at the same time as the ink light or do they flash alternately (ie: paper on, ink off -> paper off, ink on)?

If so the waste ink pads are full and you need to do the following:

1. Reset the waste ink counter:
Grab the tool linked from the wasteink.co.uk site (see bottom).

2. Redirect your waste ink into an external tank OR replace your waste ink pads.. (external tank is easier).

Instructions for the R1800 are available from this site



If the lights are doing something different, please post again with detailed information about how they flash and I can what else it might mean.

Hope that helps.

HI I have EpsonStylus Photo R1800. I just changed an ink cartridge and now the paper and ink lights are flashing alternately...it has been working fine all day...


Try unplugging your printer at the back, where the power cord goes in. Leave it out for about 30 seconds then plug it back in and try again. Sometimes they just need to be reset, or restarted. Let me know if I can be of further help

The ink and paper lights are blinking and the power light is not lit


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} I had the flashing lights (Epson R1800) too. Both the ink and paper flashed rapidly at the same time.

After intense searching on the net, I tried just about everything. SSC service utility did
Nothing. Turning printer off and on also didn’t help.

Turning printer off then pressing the paper and ink buttons, then turning power on, then waiting for both lights to flash, releasing them and pressing the ink button for 10 seconds also didn’t help.

After days of this I got frustrated, packed the POS back into the box and put it up for sale
On Craigslist. No takers… I was about to put it out to the curb ($540 printer sat in the box for almost a year) but decided to do one last google and found someone talking about the print head moving along the rail.

Suggestion was to turn printer off and see if print head traveled freely back and forth. Ok I thought, Pulled the printer back out of the box and set it up again. Reinstalled software and turned it on. Red lights flashing again! Ok, press the ink button to move head to home, then turn printer off. Then I tried to move head along rail. It moved freely a couple of inches to the left then stopped like something was blocking it.

Took my flashlight out and could not see anything in the way so pushed down on the cartridge cover and heard a “click”….. Duh! The freakin’ cover was not closed! Now the head would move left and right all the way so I turned the printer on and to my amazement NO more flashing red lights! I was both thrilled and depressed (at my stupidity) for not seeing this earlier.

I will post this everywhere I can to remind people that the cartridge cover is the FIRST thing you should check upon seeing both red lights flashing rapidly!!!!!

Our Epson R1800 printer is flashing both the paper light and the ink light. The power light is not on. What could this mean?


If they are flashing together then the problem is known as a "general error" and is caused by any number of things including:

- bad cartridges/chips (not carts recognised as 3rd party consumables)
- something blocking the printhead path (paper, rubbish, something dropped into the printer by a helpful child, etc..)
- a soiled sensor or flat cable/wire that has become disconnected.
- etc...



However, if the flashing lights alternate then it's a "service required" error which is easy to resolve and rather than reinvent the wheel is covered in detailed here:

Hope that helps...

Hi my R1800 has 2 flashing red lights (top) and no power light. What can i do? MAria


Hi.
It could be your ink tray has overflowed.
There is software http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml which might help.

Install this program, set your printer model and the driver (Epson Stylus Photo R1800) when it starts up. Close the program, and it will minimize to the
tray on the taskbar - right click on the icon and goto "Protection Counter". Choose
"Reset Protection Counter". Choose "Yes" to the question about the waste ink pads,
then switch the printer off for 1 minute. This should cure the problem.


It might be worth a try

Paper and ink lights blinking - no power light flashing at all - can't do anything on our Epson R1800 printer... can you suggest something to try? have been doing a lot of head cleaning due to bad nozzle...


Try doing a printer check by doing the steps below. If it doesnt work, then try to call the printer manufacturer for more advanced solutions or information

  1. turn off the printer and disconnect it from computer
  2. place a plain sheet of paper
  3. press and hold down the paper feed button, then press and release the power button. Continue holding down the paper button until you see the power light flashes
  4. if it prints a test page it is working fine, the problem might be the computer settings, printer settings, software or printer application, or cables, otherwise the problem is the printer itself

disconnect the printer from the computer - power off printer - check for obstructions / torn papers - power on

if paper light is still on/flashing and pressing it does not do anything - you got a hardware issue - call manufacturer for reccomendation
