    Sherlyn, thank you for your suggestion, but it did not work; and I apologise for not giving more details about my problem.

    I have tried re-seating the cartridges many times over but without joy. It is the Ink Light that is the problem; with the message that the cartridges are not recognised by the printer.

If the ink light is on steady red, that means the black or color ink cartridge is nearly empty. Obtain a replacement black or color ink cartridge. To know which cartridge is out of ink, check the ink levels using EPSON Status Monitor 3 (Windows) or EPSON Status Monitor (Macintosh). If you just replaced the cartridges before you got the error light, that means that the replacement cartridge is not recognized by your printer. Please reseat cartridges. Then turn the printer on and off. The cartridges maybe bad also.
If the paper light is on steady red, try to reload 10-20 sheets of regular paper into your printer. When printing on CD/DVD, CD/DVD tray is not inserted in the printer. Insert the CD/DVD tray in the printer and press the paper button.Could also be that the printer has loaded more than one sheet of paper at a time. Load paper in the sheet feeder, and then press the paper button to resume printing. If the CD/DVD guide is open, close the CD/DVD guide, load paper and then press the paper button.

Your printer has reach its maximum count of cleaning and printing. This need to be reset using epson adjustment program. But before resetting make sure that you have replace the waste pad inside your printer or it is much better to point outside the hose where the waste ink goes out.

Epson R230 steady 2 red light on.


It may be a general error. It is caused by cartridge error (won't read the chip), cartridge can't move back safely, or "something " slip to the mechanics. If u use the compatible chip (CISS), try to use the original chip first. The last action is turn off the printer for about 1 hour, and turn on back. It's for clearing eprom.
