Question about Epson Stylus Color 640 InkJet Printer
With new cartridges installed, all panel lights are flashing. Printer seems to go through startup sequence, but reverts to all panel lights flashing.
Depending on the particulars of printer cartridge technologies, you may have a faulty cartridge, or there is a paper jam, also try powering the printer off, then unplugging it for 1 minute, then re-power the device and see waht happens. If all else fails, it's cheaper to buy a new printer / all in one solution than having a controller chip repaired. Current inkjet printers are in the range of $65 - $150 depending on format, and functions. labor, and parts will more than likely cost you more that a new inkjet printer if you have it repaired.

Hi....take it to a tech to check about the system control chip... the control chip would have gone bad... and they will replace u with a new chip..or else Try manually moving the head carriage back and forth a few times!
Also check, if there isn't some piece of paper lodged inside, if yes try to remove it carefully!..
these are the possible solutions u can try out...
