Ink buttom and paper light one after one


Your description of the problem is not clear but if you mean that the ink and paper lights are flashing alternately (ie: paper on, ink off then paper off, ink on) then this is a classic service required issue.

You can resolve this by resetting the waste ink counter using the button presses as described here.

It is still a good idea to install a waste ink kit to collect any new waste ink and avoid flooding your printer so something like the Printer Potty would be ideal.

Both ink and rubbish light is flashing and wont go off


Rubbish light?? Do you mean the paper light is flashing?

When both the ink and paper lights are flashing together and the power light is off, the printer has an internal failure. Turn the printer off, wait a little while and turn it back on. If the error persists, decide if the printer is worth servicing. Since it is no longer sold by Epson, I assume it is out of warranty.

If the ink and paper lights are flashing in an alternating pattern, something may be blocking the print head from moving. Check for jams and clear them. If the error persists, it's service time (if you want to spend a minimum of ~$50 for diagnosis).

I wish that I could be of more help.

Two lights not power light flashing intermitantly


If you mean the ink and the paper lights are flashing at different times (ie: paper on, ink off... then paper off, ink on) then your printer is telling you it needs a service.

Rather than reinvent the wheel, here's an article on the whole thing:

You can find more information on your particular printer here too:

Blinng orange light


Answer Part 1 of 2

An error has occurred in the printer. The number of flashes indicates the type of error, as outlined below. Check the cause and take appropriate action.
Two flashes: Out of paper or paper feed error
Reload the paper correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.
Three flashes: Paper jam
If paper has jammed in the printer, clear the jam, reload the paper in the printer correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.
See Paper Jams
Four flashes: Ink tank is not installed properly
Open the Print Head Cover and check whether an ink tank is installed. If an ink tank is installed, push the button of the ink tank, and reinstall the ink tank properly.
Five flashes: No Print Head installed, or Print Head failure
Install a Print Head.
When the error continues, contact a Canon service representative.
Eight flashes: Waste ink absorber almost full
Ink used for cleaning is absorbed in a waste ink absorber placed in the printer. Eight flashes indicate that the waste ink absorber is nearly full. Press the RESUME/CANCEL button to cancel the error so that you can continue printing.
Important
If this error occurs, replacement of the waste ink absorber and maintenance of the printer are required. Canon recommends to contact a Canon service representative as soon as possible. Once the waste ink absorber becomes completely full, it cannot be printed until the Waste ink tank is exchanged.

Nine flashes: A specified period of time has lapsed without receiving a response from a digital camera or digital video camcorder / The digital camera or digital video camcorder connected is not compatible with this printer

The light is blinking on my maching (i believe it's the ink--or lack of it). i'd like to find out if that is so, but i can't seem to find the route to that on my machine, which is a mac. How do i get that...


I can't tell you how you could find out on you Mac as I've never used one with my C86 but I can tell you that you can translate the light flashing into a more meaningful "message" by observing the patterns.

  • Paper & Ink lights flashing alternately (power light off) = service required (ie: waste pads need replacing)
    .
  • Ink light flashing = ink cartridge is empty or printhead is in the exchange position. Try pressing the ink button once (don't hold it down) and see if it moves to the exchange position or moves back to park.
    .
  • paper light flashing = paper jam or no paper in feed.. Remove a jam or feed it with paper as required then press the paper button
    .
  • Power light flashing = printer is busy... If it's doing nothing trying pulling the power lead out of the back of the printer, wait 5 seconds and then plug it back in, turn it back on. This should clear any error.
    .
  • Both ink and paper lights flashing (together) = General error.. This could be anything from a serious paper jam, loose wire in the printer, parking station disconnect or similar..

Hopefully that will give you something to go on and get you working again... As far as software information goes, someone else may be able to help but chances are Epson's own support site will have some software called Status monitor or similar for your operating system which may help.

Cheers

I have brought a replacement cartridge (black) for the Epson D92 stylus printer I folowed the usuel steps and sucsesfully printed 4 or 5 b&w pages now the printer does not seem to except the cartridge...


This may or may not work on your model

"Press and hold the paper feed, paper switch and the power switch.

Once the power light and paper light flashes twice and the other lights are flashing release the paper feed and paper switch "and then press the paper feed switch".

The power, paper and ink lights will flash twice. At this point the protection counter has been reset."

The Protection Counter referred to above prevents you from printing once the printed pages counter reaches a predetermined threshold.

If this doesn't work, let me know.

Printer Parts Worn Out


This is usually a sign that the Waste Ink Pads in your printer are saturated with ink and the waste ink counter has exceeded its limit. However, your two printer lights should also be flashing alternately.

If this is the case, the Waste Ink Pads should be replaced as soon as possible. You can overcome this problem temporarily by using the SSC utility - download from

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

and 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 must change the waste ink pads before this happens. This requires the disassembly of the printer. If you want to have a go at doing this yourself, the 820 service manual can be downloaded from here:

810/820 http://www.mediafire.com/?m6ouftizois

If the printer lights are not flashing, you really need a technician to have a look at it for you.

Blinking both the ink botton ligths and the botton paper


I just today threw away my R220. If your 2 red lights are going and the power light is off, then your printer has died. It just happened to me. It sucks, but there is no way to fix it.
